Having an orthopaedic mattress can help to alleviate back pain by giving your spine support every night. With this mattress, you can say goodbye to waking up sore and stiff. By using modern technology, you can have a better night’s sleep with comfort and support in mind. Take a look at our range of orthopaedic mattresses below.
What are orthopaedic mattresses?
An orthopaedic mattress focuses on offering extra support for your spine and joints as you rest. This not only helps you sleep better, but the design also helps alleviate back pain and other aches as you’re resting, which encourages a healthy sleeping posture. You may find that this level of support is something you’ve been looking for, whether it be due to medical needs or simply wanting a more supported sleep.
What kinds of orthopaedic mattresses are there?
With the improvements in mattress technology comes more features that are built into these critical sleep aids. Orthopaedic mattresses have seen improvements not only in how they support your spine but also in other options on the market. Anti-allergy mattresses are one example of this, perfect for those who may be sensitive to dander. Another kind are cooling mattresses, something that has become more desirable in hotter weather, or if you get hot easily during the night.
Of course, material improvements aren’t the only defining types. Pressure relief is a major focus of orthopaedic mattresses, and some excel at this even more than others. Plus, you can even get mattresses that minimise your sleeping partner’s motion, helping you both rest comfortably.
What are the comfort grades for orthopaedic mattresses
People have a lot of questions when it comes to the comfort of orthopaedic mattresses. So much so that many go to Google to search for things like "are orthopaedic mattresses hard?" to help them learn more. That's why we've broken down the different grades here so you can better understand what each type offers, and get the mattress that best suits your needs. Many may think things like “are orthopaedic mattresses hard?” and have similar thoughts about the options with this level of support, but the answer is simple. Not every orthopaedic mattress is built the same. Here at Dreams, we offer four grades of com-fort, from firm orthopaedic mattresses to softer options, all designed to help you sleep well.
Soft Orthopaedic Mattresses
This is the perfect option for those who want support without sacrificing support for their spine. If you prefer a softer mattress, this is the option to choose. These orthopaedic mattresses also suit side sleepers, cushioning your pressure points during the night.
Medium Orthopaedic Mattresses
If you want comfort and support in equal measure, then a medium comfort grade is the ideal option for you. This type of orthopaedic mattress is not only equal in comfort and support, but it will also suit you no matter what your sleeping position is, making it the perfect middle ground.
Firm Orthopaedic Mattresses
Need good back support but don’t want to fully lose comfort? The firm orthopaedic mattress is the choice to make. More suitable for front and back sleepers, this orthopaedic mattress supports your spine and your neck during the night.
Very Firm Orthopaedic Mattresses
When it comes to back support, no mattress comfort level can match the very firm selection. If support is your priority above all else, opt for this. Because of the high support levels, this orthopaedic mattress is best suited for back sleepers as it keeps your spine aligned all night.
How do I choose the right orthopaedic mattress?
Choosing the right mattress can feel overwhelming, as it affects how well you’ll sleep. To help you make the right choice, we have a personal comfort guide to give you some extra guidance. The key takeaway, however, is to think about how you like to sleep and if you suffer from back pain. Orthopaedic mattresses specifically help relieve pressure and assist with spinal alignment, so if these are issues you face then browsing the selection would be a great start.
