Luxury Mattresses for Neck Pain From John Ryan by Design
Each year thousands of people visit their GP as a result of neck pain. This pain can be caused by a number of problems such as bad posture, a pinched nerve or an injury. However, we often speak to people who have found that their neck pain is the result of sleeping in a strange position or on an unsupportive mattress.
With the average person spending a third of each day asleep, it’s important not to underestimate the value of a good night’s sleep. By ensuring your neck is well supported during the night you can reduce the likelihood of neck pain and set yourself up for a more comfortable day.
Finding the right mattress for you can be a challenge when you’re not sure what you’re looking for. And unless you’ve spent years researching the best mattresses and learning about which ones are most suitable for you, you can easily feel a little overwhelmed.
When choosing a mattress, many people look for one that’s simply comfortable. But there are a multitude of factors to consider when looking for the right mattress for you, such as whether you sleep on your front, back or side. Your height and weight also need to be taken into account before making a decision as they can affect how the mattress reacts to your body.
At John Ryan, we’ve spent years learning everything there is to know about mattresses. We’ve experimented with a number of materials, layering techniques and manufacturing methods, before creating a collection of mattresses with something for every sleeper.
The best mattresses for neck pain and your favoured sleeping position
When looking for the best mattress for neck pain, it’s important to take your sleeping position into account. The most comfortable position will vary depending on the individual, with some people preferring to sleep on their front, some on their back, and others on their side.
Back sleepers with neck pain
If you suffer from neck pain and you tend to sleep on your back, it’s crucial that you find a mattress that supports your body and helps you stay in good alignment all through the night.
The best mattresses for neck pain will relieve the affected area and help to avoid placing unnecessary strain on it.
If you’re unsure which mattress is right for you, a pocket sprung mattress could really help to soothe your aches and pains. Pocket sprung mattresses are built to provide support and comfort, thanks to each individual spring being able to react individually rather than as one, such as the dreaded open coil spring. Meaning every pressure point, no matter how small, can be accommodated for.
Our Artisan Naturals mattress and Origins 1500 mattress are especially popular amongst those who sleep on their back and struggle with neck troubles.
To really find the perfect mattress, it’s also important to take your weight and height into consideration. This is because someone who weighs 8 stone has completely different support needs to someone who weighs 18 stone.
Side sleepers with neck pain
If you usually sleep on your side, you won’t need quite as much support as someone who sleeps on their back, but you’ll still need a reasonable amount of support to ensure your neck pain troubles are reduced.
Your mattress needs to be firm and supportive, while also having the correct support to it and a little leeway in the comfort layers so that your body is suitably supported as you sleep.
To find the true perfect match, your weight and height will also need to be taken into account.
Front sleepers with neck pain
If you’re someone who sleeps on your front and you suffer from neck pain, it’s extremely important that you find the right mattress for you. Although you may feel most comfortable sleeping in this position, it could make neck pain worse, particularly if you aren’t sleeping on a bed that supports your body.
If you struggle to sleep on your back or side, our Luxury Latex mattresses may be ideal. You’ll get that luxurious slow sinking feeling as soon as you climb into bed, but you’ll also feel well supported and your body should find it easier to stay aligned as you sleep.
Choosing the right mattress for you can be a challenge when you’re unsure what you should be looking for. For this reason, we’re more than happy to talk our customers through the options, taking into account your height and weight measurements along with your favoured sleeping position.
