What is an orthopaedic mattress?

An orthopaedic mattress is specifically designed to provide optimal support to key areas of the body while you sleep. A suitable orthopaedic mattress for back pain will ensure the firm sleeping surface alleviates spinal pressure, reducing feelings of soreness and tenderness.

To find out more about the best orthopaedic mattresses, take a look at our dedicated orthopaedic mattress buying guide. Alternatively, if you are an arthritis sufferer, then check out our helpful best mattress for arthritis guide.

Why choose an orthopaedic mattress?

  • Maximum levels of support – whether you choose a pocketed spring, memory foam or hybrid design, orthopaedic mattresses deliver outstanding support. They spring back quickly, and if turned regularly will not develop uncomfortable dips or lumps.

  • Better weight distribution – because they’re more robust, orthopaedic mattresses spread out your weight across a larger area. This also makes them a good choice for heavier or larger people. The weight distribution ensures that pressure spots are eliminated.

  • Encourages a healthy posture when sleeping – because of the levels of support, an orthopaedic mattress helps you naturally settle into a healthier sleeping position.

  • A neutral spine position – on an orthopaedic mattress, your spine is aligned correctly from your neck down to your lower back. This minimises stress and helps you get a better night’s sleep.

What is the price of an orthopaedic mattress?

You’ll pay a little more for a good quality orthopaedic mattress, purely because of the way they’re constructed. Orthopaedic memory foam mattresses use denser, thicker layers of foam, which may also include Reflex foam. The best way to save money is to look for special deals and sale offers. At MattressNextDay, you’ll also save money with our free UK mainland delivery service. 

How firm are orthopaedic mattresses?

Orthopaedic mattresses are generally rated firm or extra firm. This additional firmness allows your body weight to be more evenly distributed across the mattress, relieving painful pressure points while maintaining a natural spinal alignment. An orthopaedic mattress for back pain is also a suitable choice for users who simply prefer the supportive feel of firm mattresses

What types of orthopaedic mattresses are available?

Orthopaedic beds can be purchased with an array of fillings, providing sleep support to users with an assortment of needs and ailments. There are various levels of back and joint pain, and our broad orthopaedic bed range offers differing top-layer materials and contents to complement the firm orthopaedic base:
