Did you sleep badly and now your back hurts? How did you feel when your alarm went off? How do you prefer to sleep? About one in eight people like to sleep on their back, and if you get up with back problems, chances are you’re one of them. The cause may be a bad mattress. Whether you have back problems or want to prevent them, this blog will help you choose the best mattress for back sleepers!

Best mattress for back sleepers

When you lie on your back on a flat surface such as the floor of your bedroom, you will soon notice that this is not very comfortable. Still, sleeping on your back is the best position to spend the night. The body weight is evenly distributed in this position. But then you must have a mattress that is suitable for this. For example, a mattress that is too soft can lead to serious back problems, because your spine is in the wrong position at night. Fortunately, there are a lot of mattresses especially for back sleepers, possibly as an encouragement to get everyone to sleep in this healthy position. But where there is choice, there is also a difference in quality. How do you find the best mattress for you and your back?

Consider this when choosing a mattress for back sleepers

When you are looking for a good mattress as a back sleeper, it is crucial to choose a mattress with excellent stability. A mattress that ensures that your spine is aligned in a good, healthy way during the night. When the stability is too low, this leads to back problems in the short or long term. Stability should not be confused with hardness, although it is related. A hard and a soft mattress can both have excellent stability. It’s all about how the mattress optimally adapts to your body. To mold itself completely to your body and therefore to your spine, it must relieve and distribute the pressure points of your body. This way there are no annoying pressure points and you don’t sink too deep or too little into your mattress. We call this a high point elasticity. As a back sleeper, you are actually looking for a versatile mattress: stable, yet comfortable. The above also applies if you are looking for a mattress for stomach sleepers or side sleepers.

Do you sleep better on your back on a hard or soft mattress?

Your mattress should not be too soft, especially if you sleep on your back, but also not too hard. If you sink too deeply into your mattress, you can get back problems due to a convex back. An extra firm mattress is also not recommended, you will not sink into it at all. It therefore does not adapt to your body shape. The lighter you are, the softer your mattress can be.

The right support prevents back pain

Heavier people, regardless of their sleeping position, sleep better on a somewhat harder mattress anyway, because otherwise they sink too deeply. This is especially important for back sleepers with more fat on their bones. You can prevent back problems by choosing a mattress with a hardness of medium to medium/firm with pressure-relieving comfort layers. This ensures good pressure distribution.
