Default Which type of mattress?

I hope you can help us. My partner has had Scoliosis from age ten. She walks a lot and takes care of it. Always been slim, 45k.
At age 56 it can take her hours to get to sleep and awakening has back and
hip pains which are getting worse. I have had a bad back from age 10 (65 now, 6 foot 2", no weight problems) and seen chiropractors on average once each year to fix my back. But have no scoliosis. My right hip pains me at night and cannot sleep on that side. Due mainly I would think from being a professional drummer and using the bass drum pedal thousands of times every week for the last 50 years.
My Question; We need to buy a new mattress and I would assume a matching base also, to get the best benefits. Cost is important but not if it diminishes the results of less pain. Especially for my partner. Some say latex and soft. Others say a harder mattress ? I do not know.
Can you please give us your thoughts on the matter. Ian
