Debunking The Best Mattresses For Back Pain Myth

It is trite but true. You spend one-third of your life in bed. If you suffer from back pain, it just makes sense that you should pick the best mattress for back pain. Which mattress type is the best mattress for back pain?

For years, orthopedic physicians have been recommending a very firm mattress for back pain. One common remedy is to add a piece of plywood under your mattress to give it the firmness you need. Chiropractors, on the other hand, have suggested a moderately firm mattress for a good night’s sleep. Even the experts cannot agree.

For people suffering from low back pain, a recent study conducted by the Harvard Medical School seems to side with the chiropractors.  The study showed that 268 people with low back pain had the worst night’s sleep on a very firm orthopedic mattress. The Harvard study also showed that softer mattresses may let you sink in so deeply that you are in an unnatural position and still won’t get a good night’s sleep.

It appears the final answer is personal preference.  We suggest trying out different types of mattress before making your decision. Sleep on a hotel mattress.  Try out a mattress at your friend’s house.  Don’t settle for the first mattress you see at The Back Store.  Look at a variety of mattresses and brands, and try out each mattress by laying on it: on each side, on your back and on your stomach.  Our mattress experts will help you pick the perfect mattress for the way you sleep

Malouf Fine Linens — Why Buy Anything Else for Your Luxury Mattress?

It’s certainly debatable, but many believe that throwing discounted linens on a luxury mattress is a lot like the following:

  • Cloth seating on a Mercedes
  • Formica countertops with cherry oak cabinets
  • Filet mignon cooked well done
  • Wearing sneakers with a tuxedo
  • Buying a discount small screen television for your home theater room

I think you get my point — If you are investing serious time and resources into buying a state-of-the-art, luxury mattress from Tempur-Pedic or Stearns & Foster, then it just makes sense to buy the linens that match like those available from Malouf Fine Linens.

Otherwise, you’re not going to reap the full benefits of having such a fine mattress for your sleep needs. The less than high quality linens will substantially detract from the soft and luxurious experience.

Fine linens from Malouf provide a unique softness and a distinctively luxurious feel from using only 100% Egyptian cotton. Not only does the use of such fine materials promote a great feel, but it also provides great strength and the very low likelihood of any pilling. These top notch bedding products also feature a universal fit, which means there won’t be any massively frustrating struggle to put on the fitted sheet. This is because the pockets use a durable elastic that won’t slip off and are naturally deeper than most other fitted sheets.

Beyond the high end Egyptian cotton sheets, Malouf also offers fine linens available in other excellent materials like tencel, natural bamboo, and 90-gram microfiber. Although all of these products vary in cost, be rest assured that there are no sacrifices made in quality. Each product is made with a meticulously careful process and considered some of the finest available in its category.

We proudly feature Malouf Fine Linens, as well as several brands and styles of mattresses, beds, massage chairs, other fine linen brands, and more.
