Best Mattress for People With Arthritis

Best Mattress Is Personal Choice But Know Your Options!


Updated June 27, 2014

A comfortable mattress is extremely important to someone living with arthritis pain. There are coil, air, memory foam, and latex mattresses. The best is not necessarily the most expensive. Look for one that's firm enough to provide support, but with some cushion for comfort.

The best mattress is actually a matter of personal choice. Some people prefer extra firm support, while others find that to be uncomfortable. If you think there are just too many to choose from, do yourself a favor. Dig in, learn about their features, try them out in person, and soon you will know which is the best mattress for you.

1. Tempur-Pedic Mattress

Tempur-Pedic offers three mattress collections (Tempur-Cloud, Tempur-HD, and Tempur Original) ranging from pillowy-softness to a higher density material providing more support. The mattress conforms to your body to minimize pressure points while still supporting and aligning your body. Many arthritis patients love this mix of comfort and support.

2. Select Comfort Sleep Number Mattress

Firmness or softness adjusts on each side of the bed. Comes with a wireless remote. Your comfort no longer depends on how firm your partner likes the bed to be -- you can both be happy. It is made of pressure-relief memory foam with breathable fabric. Advertised as the only bed clinically proven to relieve back pain and improve sleep quality.
