SLEEP SUNDAY – LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BEST MATTRESS FOR BACK PAIN SUFFERERS…

Forbes has put together a list of 11 best mattresses for side sleepers which can help take the pressure from our spine.

Forbes say “Sleeping on your side comes with a bunch of benefits, like proper spinal alignment, better digestion and less snoring (something your bedmate will appreciate, if you sleep with someone else). But you need the right setup. The best mattresses for side sleepers make a world of difference in your quality of sleep and your overall health. Plus, you’ll likely find yourself waking up with less pain and soreness and feeling more refreshed.”

The problem is there are a lot of mattresses out there, so it can be difficult to know where to start. Finding an option that’s plush enough to let your pressure points sink into the mattress, while also providing even support to bring your spine into perfect alignment is a good place to start.

Forbes choice of 11 of the best mattresses are:

The Independent’s top choice of mattress for back pain is” Brook + Wilde’s elite is a great hybrid mattress that works to properly support the spine thanks to its innovative “wave” technology. It’s not cheap but it ticks a lot of boxes, mixing luxury with innovation. On the more affordable end, we were impressed with Silentnight’s eco comfort miracoil ortho mattress, which not only had our back but it scored best for sustainability.

As you can see from the list, the prices can vary greatly so you do not necessarily have to pay a fortune for your mattress. A tip an osteopath said to me is that if you are in pain lying on your back then try other positions before you change your mattress as it maybe that lying on your side is all you need to do. Sleeping on your back is not an absolute must for back pain. Finding a comfortable position is more important.
