I need a mattress for large man with spinal fusions and herniated discs.
The mattresses I've been buying only make my back pain worse.
With your back and spine being what it is, it will be important for the support to be right and durable enough as to not change anytime soon, as your back will be much more sensitive to changes than for people with a sound back.
That which changes first, in a mattress, are the upholstery layers.
It will be extremely important for you to avoid any mattress upholstered with memory foam, which changes quickly.
Memory foam is the worst upholstery material ever invented…specially designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing.
It has proven to make any back problems worse, despite the sales hype to the contrary.
The mattress needs to be somewhat unyielding and somewhat flexible at the same time.
It’s a fine line to walk, achieving that right balance.
For that reason, I’m recommending the Natura of Canada Greenspring Firm.
While this mattress does provide the support you need, long term, it’s generally too firm to sleep on comfortably.
You’ll need to add a mattress topper for surface comfort.
Adding a separate mattress topper allows you to replace it as needed without having to replace the entire mattress.
The upholstery material that is most resilient is natural latex foam rubber.
Latex foam changes very little over a fairly long period of time.
The one I recommend for your needs is the Sleep & Beyond Wooly Latex Topper.
This sleep system combination will provide many years of proper spinal support and comfort that isn't too soft.
The mattress comes with white glove delivery.
The topper ships via FedEx.
There are no delivery charges
A waterproof mattress protector will extend the life of any mattress, keeping it clean and dry.
