At Mattress Mattress®, we like to think that support is a necessity while comfort is a preference.

They are both important though, so choosing the right mattress starts with understanding which firmness best meets your needs.

Poor spinal support leads to back pain, which almost accounts for as many visits to the doctor’s office per year as sore throats.

During your waking hours, posture supports your spine. When you sleep, your mattress takes over. A mattress that does not properly conform to your back will force your muscles to work through the night to support your spine, leaving you with back pain in the morning.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to mattress support, as everyone’s back is different, so compare types of mattresses here to see which is right for you.
