Why Choose a Natural Latex Mattress for Back Pain

If you have ever slept on a different bed and woken up with an aching back, you will recognise how mattress quality plays a role in relation to reducing or increasing back pain. Up to 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their life, and for some it is an ongoing and persistent issue. The best mattress for back pain is one that offers adequate support, promoting correct sleep posture, keeping your spine in its naturally neutral position.

Read on to discover the signs that your mattress is exacerbating your back pain:

  • Regularly waking up stiff and sore
  • An inability to find a comfortable position as you drift off to sleep
  • Tossing and turning throughout the night
  • Noticing a sinking sensation when you lay down
  • Being able to feel the slightest movement of your sleeping partner

At Latex Mattress Australia, we use the highest quality natural latex for our mattresses to ensure optimum support for your back. As it is inherently buoyant, natural latex offers both support and supreme comfort. While most people find that a medium to firm mattress is the best choice to aid in improvement of back pain, no matter which you choose, our mattresses will keep your spine in its perfect alignment throughout the night.

1. Eliminate incorrect spinal curvature while asleep

There are specific points along the spine that naturally curve. A mattress that doesn’t offer adequate support can encourage your spine to curve in ways that are not ideal for your posture. When the spine is out of alignment, this can lead to or aggravate existing lower back pain. Additionally, as your muscles are forced to remain in a tensed state to protect your spine, your muscles will never have the chance to fully relax and repair from your day’s activities.

This is how an unsuitable mattress can add to your body’s general aches and pains. A natural latex mattress is the best mattress for back pain, as the orthopedically designed latex promotes correct spinal alignment for all styles of sleepers.

2. Pressure point relief

Sleeping on a mattress that does not contour or support you evenly can create pressure points that result in poor circulation. Starving your body of the appropriate blood and oxygen flow can create numbness, tingling and can rob your muscles of the ability to recover from fatigue and soreness. Your body will spend the night constantly adjusting, trying to find comfort, however, you will never achieve deep, restorative sleep.

Our high quality natural latex mattresses contain seven zones, orthopedically designed to conform to your body profile and consequently reduce pressure points and back pain. The ingenious design allows your shoulders and hips to naturally relax, while offering firmer support to your lumbar region.

3. Reduced tossing and turning throughout the night

As natural latex cradles your body to provide optimum spinal alignment and doesn’t trap or create heat, many find that they move less frequently in their sleep. When you have persistent back pain, regular movements through the night can trigger pain and result in broken sleep. A reduction in movement can therefore mean a better night’s sleep, and potentially less aggravation of existing back pain.

4. There is no ‘sinking’

Over time, memory foam mattresses tend to lose their ‘memory’, with the foam softening with age. Memory foam has a chemical reaction to your body heat, meaning a softer or harder mattress with the seasons.  For some, the ‘sinking’ feeling of a memory foam mattress can inhibit the ability to roll or move in the night. A natural latex mattress will never sink, and the natural buoyancy will offer firm yet cushioned support, allowing complete freedom of movement.

The best mattress for back pain is one that offers you the perfect combination of comfort and support.

Your comfort is our purpose. Latex Mattress Australia offers a boutique range of mattresses, uniquely designed to provide a lifetime of comfort and support.

Great service, I was able to order and pick up the next day, despite the COVID lockdown. I bought the latex mattress topper, and I couldn't be happier with it, my partner absolutely loves it too. It has made my night's sleep being pregnant much better. Highly recommend

I was shopping around for latex matress and came across Latex Matress Australia. Gave them a call and went through our requirements for a matress as my partner has a bad back and neck from a car accident injury. Staff were very informative and helpful, delivery was fast and they took away our old matress.The matress itself has been a dream, pun intended. Suits both my requirements and that of my partners. Highly recommend, Latex Matress Australia for their service and their products.

I bought a new mattress and pillow as was having back pain. Ordering was simple and delivery very quick. Service from the store was perfect, had some issues with the delivery people but nothing against the store. Everything was packaged well. The mattress and pillow itself are great, very comfortable, perfect size and would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking to improve their sleep!

AMAZING! Love our new mattress topper. My partner has compressed discs in his back and I am in my third trimester of pregnancy. The topper has really eased the discomfort we were both experiencing with our mattress. Great customer service by Sam also. Thank you

I bought a replacement latex mattress for another brand that lasted over 15 years. This one is so much better as I can turn it over & wash the covers. It is very comfort to sleep on either my side or back. Very happy with the service.

My wife was having alot of back pain after our 1st child. We had a top of the line pocket spring mattress that sagged after 1 year. We brought the pure support mattress around 2 years ago and from the first nights sleep we noticed a big difference. Instant relief. 2 years later, still loving it and very happy with it! Highly recommend the product and team.

We bought a king size mattress from here approx. 7 years ago now, at the time it was a huge financial investment for us but we STILL constantly talk about it to friends and family because honestly it's the best money we ever spent. We stay in fancy hotels with fancy mattresses and can't wait to get home to our natural latex mattress. IT'S THE BEST. And after 7 years of use every day it still looks and feels like the first day we got it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Firstly, I highly recommend latex mattress vs other types, & absolutely recommend getting your latex mattress from Latex Mattress Australia!Customer service was excellent - highly knowledgeable about not only their range of products, but also able to give you some insight into differences between latex mattress & eg memory foam or inner spring.I live in VIC, so handled everything over the phone/email, but whole process was extremely efficient (& that includes Latex Mattress having to contend with NDIS in my case too!), with delivery & unpacking people on time & extremely helpful.Re the mattress itself - I have a permanent spinal injury from an accident 15 years ago, & within 2 weeks of having this mattress I have lost the nagging lower back pain that I thought was just a normal consequence of my back injury. Apparently that was all purely because of my previous inner spring w memory foam topper mattress! I also no longer have to change position every few hours to relieve pain & pressure points. The mattress took a couple of days to adjust to, but it wasn't a firmness/softness issue, it was just the strangeness of suddenly not being able to feel/sense any springs underneath me!I will note that for first few weeks, scent sensitive people (as I am) will have to ignore the 'new latex' smell as it gradually eases, but that's the only downside I can think of 😊The guarantee of 21 years gives me enormous comfort from financial standpoint as latex mattresses are admittedly a high cost item, but the mattress itself provides enormous physical comfort, making the cost absolutely worth every cent.

Recommended by Chiropractors

There is a good reason our mattresses are recommended by leading chiropractors.

One of the fantastic properties of 100% pure and natural latex is that it is incredibly supportive without feeling too hard. It moulds to the contours of your body whilst reducing pressure points.

Our latex also has seven posture zones to ensure your spine stays in line while you are sleeping.
