I currently have a four year old, what appears to be, a firm or med mattress.
Much to my disappointment, I routinely wake up to lower back pain.
I have been reading your review and responses to various inquires.
Like some of your respondents I too experience morning pain, for me lower back and neck/thoracic area.
Both are related to old injuries.
I am 63, very active with outdoor sports year-round, in very good physical shape , at 5'10, 205 lbs.
Last week I spent 7 nights on a Simmons Hyde Park Plush Simmons Beautyrest hotel mattress.
Each day I awoke without any pain.
I have not been able to find the model on line.
Do you know of a similar product?
The lack of pain from that hotel mattress comes from:
That mattress having an individually pocketed coil unit.
No memory foam.
Unfortunately, these older hotel mattresses are no longer being made without memory foam.
Simmons was sold to an investment group after that mattress was made.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush Mattress is what I’d recommend for you…providing the same type of support as that older Beautyrest…and upholstered with latex and containing no memory foam.
Latex is and has been the best upholstery material for the last 100 years.
That older hotel mattress is upholstered with polyurethane foam.
As latex is much more expensive than poly foam, it was seldom used in hotel mattresses.
You and I are the same size and I’m several years older.
I’ve had a number of disc related back problems for the past couple of decades.
The Natura of Canada Greenspring Ultra Plush Mattress is what my wife and I have been sleeping on for the last 7.5 years. And for all of those years I have slept and awakened without back pain.
And despite each of us weighing more than 200 lbs., our mattress remains in like new condition.
It’s, simply, the best mattress you’ll find anywhere.
