HOW TO CHOOSE A MATTRESS FOR BACK PAIN?
While choosing or buying mattresses online to address your problem of back pain you must see the mattress conformability i.e. how well the mattress adjusts to your body contours.
A firm mattress provides overall support for the body. However, a substantial mattress can be a reason for severe back/shoulder pain, especially for side sleepers. Soft mattress firmness can provide good comfort but may not have enough support.
Hence a medium-firm mattress is an ideal choice.
Lie on the mattress at a store for 15 minutes to see if the mattress’s firmness suits you.
Check the support level i.e. how effectively a mattress can support a heavier person and also how it keeps the sleeper’s body on a plane level.
