I would like to know if I can use my heated mattress pad with the mattress topper?
Would it help relieve my sciatica nerve problem?
You can use a heated mattress pad with anything other than mattresses and toppers made with memory foam.
Memory foam is a temperature sensitive material that softens as it warms.
Memory foam is aka: visco foam, gel foam, slow recovery foam.
Sciatica starts with a pinched nerve at the base of your spine.
The pain radiates around the hip and down the leg.
A nerve is being pinch by the vertebrae where the discs have worn.
The best way to reduce/eliminate that kind of pain is the keep the vertebrae from pinching that nerve.
This is best achieved by maintaining the natural alignment of your spine.
The best material to use for this is a mattress made with an individually pocketed coil
Thwarting any effort on your part is when you buy a mattress upholstered with memory foam. Memory foam is the worst upholstery material ever and will cause any back problem to become worse.
If you don’t have the proper support, adding a topper of any kind will end up being a total waste of money.
If you have an individually pocketed coil mattress that’s upholstered with memory foam, you can get by for a couple/few years by first flipping the mattress over and adding a Suite Sleep 2” Soft Organic Latex Topper.
