Lower back pain treatment: Research reveals the best type of mattress for lower back pain

Harvard Health explains: “While a soft mattress that conforms to your body’s natural curves may help the joints align favourably, you might also sink in so deeply that your joints twist and become painful during the night.”

The survey results may not have found a meaningful difference between medium-firm and firm mattresses, but additional research has suggested a medium-firm mattress provides optimal support.

According to an article published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, two separate studies found that medium-firm mattresses reduced clinically diagnosed back pain, shoulder pain, spine stiffness, and positively affected sleep quality.

What’s more, even subjects with minor sleep disturbances benefited significantly in sleep quality and efficiency with medium-firm bedding systems.
