When it comes to our mattresses, we’re all a bit
like Goldilocks: We want the one that feels just right. However, the bed
that feels “just right” may actually be contributing to your
back and neck pain in the morning. The right
type of mattress
is ultimately whichever one feels the most comfortable, but there are
some interest facts and figures surrounding the great mattress debate
that might tip the scales in favor of a soft or firm bed.
The Link between Your Mattress and Back Pain
Just a mattress, huh? Tell that to orthopedic surgeons. In a recent survey,
95 percent of orthopedic surgeons polled said they believe a mattress
plays a significant role in lower back pain management. Although the age
and quality of the mattress has a major effect, some experts believe (though
can’t prove) that back pain is more prominent among
firm mattress sleepers.
Improvement in Pain and Sleep Quality
And those experts wouldn’t be wrong. In a study published in
The Lancet, a British medical journal, researchers found that patients suffering
from back pain were twice as likely to experience improvement when sleeping
on a medium-firm mattress compared to patients who slept on a firm or
extra-firm mattress. This study suggest that a medium-firm mattress provides
a better balance between back support and comfort for lower back pain,
though other factors such as your height and weight also play a factor.

If you’re looking for a new mattress, buy one that will keep your
back healthy and supported. Your bed is the most important piece of
bedroom furniture, and most people spend between five and eight hours in bed per night.
The wrong mattress can contribute to back pain, neck pain, and muscle
stiffness. Here is a guide to help you find the best mattress for your
Talk to Your Doctor or Chiropractor
Your doctor or chiropractor can direct you to a number of
mattress options that will give you an optimal level of support for your back.
Even if you don’t have chronic back issues, you should take preventative
measures to protect your back, and choose a mattress that will give you
a great night’s sleep while preventing body pain and stiffness.
Read Online Reviews
Even if you have recommendations from a medical professional, family, or
friends, you should check out online reviews as well. Read reviews for
both your mattress store and the mattresses themselves. This will give
you more varied information on the quality and comfort of each mattress.
You’ll also find out if your mattress store offers good customer
service, or if there are common problems that customers have had with
either the mattress store or a mattress itself.
Ask Your Mattress Store about Comfort Levels
Many mattress stores rate or categorize the comfort levels of the mattresses
that they sell. They can let you know the firmness level of the mattress,
and how supportive it will be for your back. Each person may need a different
level of firmness from a mattress to ensure comfort and back health, and
you shouldn’t be shy about testing out some of the mattresses in
the store to find out how they feel.

Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom, and your mattress and bed
frame should be chosen with care. Your local
mattress store may also sell bedroom furniture, and if you’re buying a new mattress
from them, you may be able to get a discount or special deal on a bed
frame. Here is some information of different bed frame styles that can
complement your other bedroom furniture.
Platform Bed Frames
bed frames are great for people who gravitate towards a minimalist aesthetic.
They are very simple, and typically don’t have posts, headboards,
or footboards; instead, they just have a raised platform on which the
mattress sits, either with a box spring or without. Most people who like
platform beds appreciate their simple design and clean lines. Platform
beds can sit directly on your bedroom floor, or can have legs that lift
them up off of the floor. Both options allow for storage—you can
either store things under a bed with legs, or choose a platform bed with
Canopy Bed Frames
Canopy bed frames are romantic and old fashioned. Their tall bedposts are
connected at the top to create a frame that allows you to surround the
bed frame with draped fabrics or curtains. Whether the curtains are open
or drawn shut, the look is very dramatic. When the curtains are drawn
shut, you have a private, tent-like sleeping area that is protected from
drafts. In certain regions, you can even opt for drapery or curtains that
repel bugs and mosquitos.
Quilted Headboards and Footboards
Quilted headboards and footboards offer a vintage look for your bedroom.
The fabric that covers your headboard and footboard can coordinate or
contrast with your bedroom furniture, creating a unique aesthetic. Many
people find quilted headboards much more comfortable than wooden or metal
