I’m always careful to caution people about whether our memory foam mattress topper pad will help with their back pain. There are just too many different causes of back pain, and so sometimes the topper pad can help and sometimes it doesn’t. My experience with customers has been that about 80 – 85% of the time, the topper pad helps with back pain (in the case where the underlying mattress is overly firm). And my own personal experience is that memory foam helped my back feel much less painful in the mornings.
We did get a very nice testimonial on this last week that made our day. Here it is – again with the caution that not all back pain sufferers would have this sort of result:
“Hi Healthy Foundations.
I am so pleased with my purchase of your queen size 3″ memory foam mattress. I would like to write a quick testimonial, but don’t see how to add it to your web site, so here goes:
I’ve experienced back pain for many of my 60 years. I’ve recently had X-Rays and MRI’s done, and was told it’s degenerative disc disease and arthritis, along with some discs that are bulging. I’ve been through physical therapy, and take muscle relaxants every morning. I ALWAYS get out of bed in the morning severely bent over to the left side with my back in muscle spasm lasting until about noon. Since I take care of 5 grandchildren from 7 months old up to 10 years old, starting at 5:45 in the morning, it makes my morning life quite difficult.
I’ve been reading a lot about the memory foam mattresses (although NONE of the orthopedists or neurologists I’ve seen have mentioned it) and thought I’d try it since my worse pain is when I get up in the morning. I ordered the 3” queen size topper and it arrived on time as promised. After unrolling it slightly, it opened itself up quite nicely. The fresh foam smell didn’t bother me at all…smelled kind of like new paint. By bedtime, it seemed completely uncompressed. I was SO anxious to try it that we put it on our mattress (a very good one) and covered it with our quilted fitted mattress pad, even though it had only been unpacked for about 8 hours. As soon as we settled in, my husband and I felt a difference. He is in excellent shape ( a gym rat/racquetball competitor/motorcyclist/athlete) and has no back problems, but he also noticed the comfort right away.
Well, I woke up this morning…got out of bed…and I WAS STANDING UP STRAIGHT WITH ALMOST NO BACK PAIN!!!! It was like one of those tent revivals where they lay hands on the crippled and they walk! “YOU ARE HEALED!!!” That’s just what it felt like. I kept waiting for the pain to hit, but the relief lasted all day. I can’t wait to go to bed tonight just to wake up again tomorrow to feel so good.
I want to thank you for your fine product…and the generous return policy. That’s what made me order from Healthy Foundations, knowing it was risk free. I’ve tried so many things that did not help as they promised, that I has become very leary of back pain cure products.
Thanks again for pain free days!
