Default Re: Which type of mattress?

Thank you for your question. There are many opinions about beds and back pain. There is little in the scientific literature about the best type of bed.

Consequently, like many things, the decision as to the best type of mattress comes down to common sense and trying out what suits. In general, a firmer mattress is preferable.

Some beds come with adjustable bases, which have slats that can be changed to alter the stiffness (and one side of the bed can be made softer/harder, depending on your partnerís preference.)

I would recommend seeking advice at a specialist bedding store to see what options there are.
