Luxury Mattresses for Shoulder Pain From John Ryan by Design
Shoulder problems affect so many people in the UK, even going so far as affecting their sleep. It is estimated that around 1.5 million people visit their doctor for shoulder pain each year, with about 40% of these people suffering ongoing pain despite treatment.
No matter the source of shoulder pain; whether you have a chronic sports injury, have a physically demanding job, or you’re hunched over a keyboard in an office all day, it’s important to do all you can to make your life more comfortable. And that includes finding the best mattress for shoulder pain.
There are so many different factors that go into choosing a mattress – whether you sleep on your front or on your back and your height and weight are a couple of things to consider. But experiencing pain in a certain part of your body should definitely be a factor when picking a new mattress.
At John Ryan, we’ve got a real passion for mattresses – it’s why we started the company – and we’ve got a wealth of experience in the industry. We’ve done extensive research of what goes into every kind of mattress, what the best materials to use are and which type of mattresses are suited to different people.
The best mattresses for shoulder pain
When looking at the best mattresses for shoulder pain you really need to take into consideration the position you sleep in. Not every person who suffers with shoulder pain will find the same position the most comfortable, however, most people with shoulder pain tend to either sleep on their good shoulder or on their back.
Back sleepers with shoulder pain
If you sleep on your back, this should keep your shoulders in a good and stable alignment and won’t put too much pressure on the affected area. In this instance you’ll need a mattress that provides enough support to your body and your painful shoulder, but still provides some give to ensure it’s comfortable.
Because pocket sprung mattresses contain individual springs that are cushioned in their own pockets, they provide support across the whole of the body. This makes them one of the best mattresses for back sleepers and should provide enough support for your shoulder. Our Artisan Naturals is a great example of a luxury mattress ideal for shoulder pain or our Origins 1500.
Support is always determined by weight and so one mattress that provides adequate support for someone who weighs nine stone would probably not be ideal for someone who weighs 18 stone – and vice versa. You really just need to determine how much support your shoulder needs whilst you’re on your back and find a mattress that delivers it, taking into consideration your weight and height measurements. We can talk you through the spring tensions of our different mattresses to help find you the perfect one. And we can explain the different upholstery types that can give you the option of either a softer or firmer feel in the top layer.
Our luxury Hybrid Foam mattresses are ideal for those with shoulder pain who like that slow sinking feeling, giving that memory foam feel without the heat problems. Alternatively, our Luxury Latex mattresses provide the same feeling but with more of a bounce back quality. Latex reacts immediately to your every move, meaning as you change position in the night the surface adapts to your body; creating space and pressure-free zones. You may even find you’re able to sleep on the painful shoulder with a Latex mattress. However, Latex mattresses may take a bit of getting used to if you’ve never had one before.
Side sleepers with shoulder pain
If you’re a side sleeper, you’re not going to need as much support as a back sleeper so the mattress you choose should reflect that. Back sleepers benefit much more from a firm mattress because their body is more evenly distributed across the bed. For side sleepers with shoulder pain, your mattress should sink enough to cup your shoulder, but not so much that you wake up in a sunken pit! Again, your weight and height will help to determine how much support you need and we can talk you through the upholstery types that can provide a softer or firmer top feel.
Side sleepers could again consider Latex mattresses for shoulder pain as they provide bounciness and contouring.
