Luxury Mattresses for Back Pain From John Ryan by Design

Thousands of people across the UK are affected by back pain. From having aches and pains at the top of the spine to a dull soreness on the lower back, back pain can affect people in different ways.

With the average person spending a third of their life asleep, it’s crucial that those with back pain are getting the right support when they’re in bed. A good night’s sleep with a well supported back will set you up for the day and reduce the likelihood that you spend your waking hours in pain.

If you’re wondering where to start, a good mattress designed for those with back pain should be your base.

There are a multitude of factors to consider when choosing a mattress, such as whether you sleep on your front, back or side. Your height and weight also play an important role and need to be taken into account when looking for the right mattress for you.

At John Ryan, we’ve spent years researching exactly what makes the best mattress and experimenting with a number of different materials, layering techniques and the best Natural fibre upholstery layers. All this experience and exploration has allowed us to create a series of mattresses designed to meet everyone’s needs.

The best mattresses for back pain and your favoured sleeping position

When looking for the best mattress for back pain, it’s wise to take your sleeping position into consideration. The most comfortable position varies from person to person, with some people favouring sleeping on their front, some on their back, and others on their side.

Back sleepers with back pain

If you suffer from back pain and you feel most comfortable sleeping on your back, it’s important to find a mattress that both supports you and helps you stay in good alignment.

The best mattresses for back pain are ones that help to relieve the affected area and help you avoid placing too much strain on it.

Pocket Sprung mattresses can be particularly beneficial for back pain because they’re designed to provide you with both support and comfort. They contain individual springs that are cushioned in their own breathable pockets and they’ve been built with whole-body support in mind.

Our Artisan Naturals mattress and Origins 1500 mattress are particularly popular amongst those who sleep on their back and suffer from back pain.

It’s also important to take your weight into account because someone who weighs 9 stone has completely different mattress needs to someone who weighs 18 stone.

Choosing the right mattress for you can be a challenge when you’re unsure what you should be looking for. This is why we’re more than happy to talk our customers through the options, taking into account your height and weight measurements along with the position you tend to sleep in.

Our Luxury Hybrid Foam mattresses are ideal for anyone with back pain who wants a mattress that gives them that luxurious slow sinking feeling as soon as you climb into bed.

Alternatively, you may prefer our Luxury Latex mattresses. These provide a similar feeling but have more of a bounce-back quality, reacting quickly to your every move and continuing to support you without any delays. If you’re the type of sleeper to toss and turn at night, a Latex mattress will adapt to changes in your body.

Side sleepers with back pain

If you tend to 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 back pain troubles are minimised.

Your mattress should be firm and supportive, but should also have a light spring to it and a little leeway so that your shoulder is suitably supported as you sleep.

Your weight and height will also need to be taken into account before the perfect mattress match is found for you.
