Make Sure the Firmness Level Matches Up with Your Sleep Position
We all know that support and firmness are the most crucial factors when it comes to sleeping on a bad back. But it is not the end-all-be-all. You also have to factor in your favorite sleeping position, as this will definitely tell you which pressure points are hit by your mattress. If you’re a side sleeper, sleeping on a soft to medium mattress is perfect to avoid unnecessary pressure on your hips and shoulders. A firmness level is needed to allow the shoulders and hips to sink a little while still giving support. Back sleepers farewell with medium-firmed mattresses. Also, try to avoid sleeping on your stomach, as this can cause your middle area to sag up, overextending your lower back and causing more pain.
