After visiting three orthopaedic surgeons, a massage therapist, accupuncturist and 2 rounds of physical therapy for my back pain, all with no improvement, the fingers of blame point to my bed.
I previously owned a S&F (non pillowtop) that after 10 years was due for a change; also my husband who is 6'4" needed a bigger if not longer - bed. We purchased a latex bed - Cal King - and it was very hot and hurt my back. We turned that in for a Chatham & Wells Cynthia. That was 1 1/2 years ago, and my back pain has just gotten progressively worse. I am sleeping in a rut, although the rut when not lying on the bed is only 1 1/8" which is not enough to cause a warranty exchange.
I am a side and back sleeper and have been diagnosed with hyperlordosis, but no herniated disks and no other structural problems - trust me, I've had all of the x-rays and MRI films taken. As soon as I get out of bed, my pain which is centralized in teh lower back L5 and left hip stops hurting.
Is the C&W too soft? Should we go back to the S&F? Help, I"m running out of options!!!!!
Hi Maureen, I too, have more pictures of my back than of my children. The mattress you have is too soft.
The S&F model I would have you try first is the Reisling. It's a cushion firm pillowtop. Pillowtops are usually too soft, but not this one. It's firm, but comfortable.
