Back Pain Worse from Tempurpedic, Sleep Number, Serta, Sealy and Simmons Mattresses.
Over the last 4 years, I have gone through 5 mattresses.
I've tried Tempurpedic, Sleep Number, Serta i Comfort, Sealy Posturepedic and Simmons Beautyrest.
All have made my back pain worse, despite all the salesmen telling me that their mattress will help.
I'm a large man, 6' 3", 250 lbs, with herniated disc that cause me back pain.
You were recommended to me by a friend, who bought a mattress from you.
They tell me that you know your what you're talking about.
I trust him, so I'll trust you.
To complicate the issue, my wife is somewhat petite. She's 5' 7", weighing only 135 lbs.
She likes a softer feel, which has always been a problem for me.
Can you help me find something that will be good for both of us?
Thank your friend for me, for the referral.
I can, in fact, help you...as I have helped many like you with similar circumstances.
First, the problem you've had, is with mattresses upholstered with memory foam.
Despite all the hype to the contrary, memory foam is the worst upholstery material ever invented.
Memory foam is a temperature sensitive material that softens as it warms from your body heat.
While comfortable, at first, it quickly loses its initial comfort and support, within months of purchase.
The key to a successful purchase, is avoiding any mattress made with memory foam.
The mattress I'm recommending for you, is the same mattress my wife and I sleep on, at home.
We are, both, over 200 lbs. I have Herniated discs, bulging discs, and DDD, (Degenerative Disc Disease).
Despite all that, I sleep and wake with zero back pain...pain I use to live with constantly.
This mattress uses a double tempered steel, individually pocketed coil unit, which maintains the natural alignment of your spine. This type of coil system is key to relieving your back pain.
The double tempered steel coils and latex upholstery combine to provide a mattress that does the job you want it to do, do it for a very long time, and be comfortable enough for the curves of the female body.
Our mattress is more than 5.5 years old, and still in like new condition.
That mattress is The Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush.
