Is a Latex Mattress Good for Your Back?

Do you typically experience back problems while sleeping? You're definitely not alone. The majority of people who complain their back hurts when they wake up in the morning, often suffer from chronic back pain, which is pain that lasts for at least three months.

When you're suffering from back pain, you're simply not able to enjoy life to the fullest. Whether you're currently experiencing upper or lower back pain, being proactive is one of the best things you can do to help alleviate your pain. Finding a mattress that will properly support your back is a great way that you can be proactive and help alleviate your pain.

The latest research tells us that sleeping on a medium-firm mattress such as a natural latex hybrid mattress by Eco Terra is the best choice for chronic back pain sufferers.

Alleviating Back Pain

High quality natural latex mattresses such as the hybrid made by Eco Terra and the all-latex made by PlushBeds, which support the spine, are highly recommended when it comes to alleviating chronic back pain, which is in fact one of the many well-known latex mattress benefits. When a mattress isn’t able to provide the support needed for proper spinal alignment, it places additional strain on the spine and the surrounding muscles. An unsupportive mattress also doesn’t allow for comfortable sleeping positions, which in turn causes back pain.

While each person will have their own personal preference for the overall firmness of their mattress, it will ultimately need to fully support the body’s natural curves, which will also support the alignment of the spine. This will help to alleviate your back pain. 

Recommended sleeping positions for back sufferers.

  • Side sleeping. Sleeping on the side with a pillow underneath the waist helps to reduce spine pressure. This popular sleeping position keeps the spine straight vs. it bending downwards towards the mattress, which takes the spine out of alignment.
  • Back sleeping. Sleeping on the back with support placed underneath the head, shoulders and knees is also known to help take the pressure off the spine, helping sleepers to get a good night’s rest when suffering from back pain.
  • Stomach sleeping. Sleeping on one’s stomach when suffering from back pain is only recommended for those who mainly experience back pain when they are in a sitting position.
  • Fetal position sleeping. Those who experience back pain more when they’re standing or walking may get some relief by sleeping in a fetal position, which helps take some pressure off the spine.

If your back hurts after sleeping, then finding the best medium-firm mattress should be a top priority. One of the best mattresses for back pain is a natural latex mattress, which is able to properly support your spine in any sleeping position.

How a Latex Mattress Helps Alleviate Chronic Back Pain

An all-natural latex mattress is highly recommended for those who are looking for ways to reduce their back pain. Latex is deemed to be superior when it comes to popular mattress qualities, since it is one of the most supportive mattresses available today. It can help bring relief to those who are suffering from either lower and/or upper back pain. A natural latex mattress conforms to the body’s natural curves due to its unique ability to ‘push back’. This gives sleepers the support they need, while sleeping in any position.

The Eco Terra Latex Mattress offers the perfect amount of support necessary for good back health, while still being soft enough to perfectly contour to the body.

Are you wondering if a natural latex mattress is the best choice for your back pain? The Eco Terra Latex Mattress comes with a 90-day sleep trial, which means you have time to make sure that you’re indeed making the right mattress choice.

Eco Terra Latex Mattress

No one should have to live with back pain. When a mattress is too soft or too firm it isn’t able to support the body’s pressure points properly. This eventually leads to the next morning’s aches and pains. That’s why the Eco Terra Latex Mattress is only available in medium and medium-firm. These two firmness options offer sleepers all of the support their body needs for their overall good health, as well as the comfort their body needs for a refreshing good night’s sleep.

When it comes to latex density, Eco Terra simply knows how to do it best. The special process used when making an Eco Terra Latex Mattress is able to give sleepers the firmness they need for good back support and the soft luxury they need so they can sleep comfortably.

While some may think that the best mattress for back pain is a memory foam mattress, they are incorrect. Memory foam mattresses do not offer the proper support that latex mattresses offer. When someone sleeps on a high quality natural latex mattress, they can expect the mattress to push back, which means they are getting the benefit of this additional support.

Eco Terra Warranty and Free 90 Day Trial

Improper back support doesn’t provide you with natural spinal alignment. This leads to back pain. The Eco Terra Latex Mattress doesn't lose its exceptional support qualities in a few years like other mattresses. Those who choose to buy an Eco Terra Latex Mattress can expect a minimum of 15 years of luxury sleeping, as every mattress comes with a 15-year warranty.
