Aches and pains after waking up in the morning affects roughly 40% of us. This can be the result of several factors, the primary factors being the position in which you slept as well as the type of mattress you have been sleeping on. But how do you know which type of mattress is the best for aches and pains?

Memory Foam Mattresses

Memory foam mattresses have risen in popularity over recent years. Memory foam provides extra comfort and padding which can help to resolve back pains. Due to the padded surface of these mattresses, it means that they don’t need to be flipped. Memory foam mattresses mould to the shape of your body, hence why they are renowned for being so comfortable.

Pocket Sprung Mattresses

Each and every coil within a pocket sprung mattress is wrapped within its own sleeve. This helps to hold it at the right tension and allows them to move independently. This means that a high level of comfort is added as each individual spring will adjust to each movement you make. There is a large amount of different spring counts available. We would suggest going with a mattress with at least 1000 springs. In theory, the more springs, the more superior comfort.

Open Coil Mattresses

Open Coil Mattresses use a continuous spring unit construction, where each spring draws support from the next. This helps to provide a high amount of sturdiness. These are an incredibly popular and common mattress and you can’t really go wrong by selecting this type. Though they’re popular, some may say they are becoming outdated with the increase in demand for memory foam.

Overall, if you are suffering from aches and pains, we would recommend that you go with a memory foam mattress. This is because memory foam mattresses mould to the shape of your body, which is why they’re known for being so comfortable.
