Choosing the right mattress for back support, good posture and sleep comfort has a significant effect on back pain relief. The best bed is one that will reduce pressure, enhance support and provide proper spinal alignment. The mattress sales person should be able to explain the type of mattresses that might meet these criteria.
However, personal preference in terms of sleep comfort and back support should ultimately be the guide for those with back pain and back problems. With this in mind, one should always lie down on the mattress for at least a few minutes and see how it feels before ultimately making the purchase.
