What type of mattress is best for back problems?
Q: What type of mattress should I use if I have back problem and spondylosis. I have read somewhere that mattresses should be such that they take the shape of the persons body - is it true? or should they be very firm and hard?
A:For back and spondylosis problem, I would advise you a firm cotton mattress and you should change the mattress every one year. In fact, if the mattress adapts to the contours of your body, it will be sagging at places and putting extra pressure at certain points which after a sleep of 8 hours will aggravate your pain.
