How the Right Mattress Can Alleviate Aches and Pains

How the Right Mattress Can Alleviate Aches and Pains

Do you wake up in the morning with unexplainable aches and pains?

Well, it’s probably from your mattress.

If you’re sleeping on a mattress that’s not designed for your sleep style, chances are you’re going to wake up “on the wrong side of the bed” so to speak. You need to find a bed that supports key points on your body depending on your sleeping position, so you don’t wake up with aches and pains.

So, if you’re experiencing back, neck, or hip pain, here’s how the right mattress can alleviate your discomfort:

Best Mattress for Back Pain

Back pain, especially lower back pain, is the most prevalent complaint we hear from new customers looking to switch out their old mattress. This is particularly true for people who sleep on their backs.

If you’re a back sleeper, the lumbar area of your spine will require the most support. To achieve this, use a thin top layer that has 2 inches of foam that can support your lower back. As for the mattress itself, go for one that errs on the side of firm. The best kind of mattress for back sleepers is a firm, latex mattress.

Majestic Mattress’s firm Kensington Supreme Latex or Latex Hybrid in firm or extra firm are exceptional choices for back sleepers.

Best Mattress for Hip Pain

Typically, side sleepers experience the most hip pain. This is because most of your weight is localized to your one hip. To alleviate the pressure on this localized spot, you’ll want to choose a soft mattress.

A soft mattress will allow your hip to sink into the bed, which will help displace some of your body weight to surrounding areas.

A medium to soft organic latex mattress will support the curved areas of your body to alleviate the pressure points. Majestic Mattress recommends the Kensington Supreme Latex in Soft or Medium or the Latex Hybrid in soft or medium.

Best Mattress for Neck Pain

Stomach sleepers are often cursed with neck pain. 

This is due to their necks being turned to the side and flexed too far forward or too far backwards.

But when you sleep on your stomach, it’s very difficult to find a position that will actually keep your neck aligned with your spine. So, the least you can do is find a mattress and pillow that supports your sleep style.

The best mattress for stomach sleepers to alleviate neck pain is a firm mattress with thin comfort layers. The added comfort layers provide a softness that will help cushion bony areas without straining your neck. Majestic Mattress recommends the Pacifica Pillow Top Pocket Coil (Hoteliers’ Choice) mattress for the best support. It’s one of our most affordable mattresses.

If you’re a stomach sleeper, we recommend you opt for a thin pillow that gives your head enough height so that your neck aligns with your spine.

The right mattress will provide support for your back and joints, promote good alignment, and cushion against pressure points and pain. If you experience back, neck or hip pain, it’s probably time to look for a new mattress.
