Memory Foam Mattress: Memory Foam Can Help With Lower Back Pain

Time for a new mattress?  Tired of tossing and turning and waking up with lower back pain?  Maybe you’ve been thinking about a memory foam mattress because you’ve heard they can help ease back pain.  This is true for many people, but there’s only one way to find out if a memory foam mattress can help with your lower back pain.  Read on…

Lower Back Pain, When To Worry makes some good points about lower back pain, including when to see your doctor.  It’s important to understand that a memory foam mattress is not a cure-all for lower back pain, but a memory foam mattress has been shown to ease back pain for many people.

The only way to really find out if a memory foam mattress can help ease your lower back pain is to try one for an extended period in your own home.  We recommend at least 180 days.  If the memory foam mattress doesn’t work for you, you need to be able to return it and get your money back.  Do not buy from a retailer that offers anything but a money-back guarantee.  If you do, you could be out a lot of money and still not have a mattress that works for you.  Bottom line:  A memory foam mattress may help ease your back pain, but trying it in your own home for at least 180 days is the only way to find out for sure.

At Healthy Foundations, we want you to be as informed about your mattress choices as possible.  In addition to our Guide to Memory Foam, we also offer buyer’s guides for latex mattresses and air beds.
