Mattress Buying Guide
Determine If You Need A New Mattress. One question with which we are always approached is, "How do I know if I need a new mattress?" The answer is not always an easy one to answer. You can tell when you need a new car because your old one starts breaking down more often. You can tell that you need a new television if your old one won't turn on. With your mattress, however, such visible, physical signs of needing a replacement are less obvious. In fact your mattress may look as good as the day you bought it, but its not the looks that counts. Mattresses are designed to alleviate the pressure put on your back, shoulders, neck and hips while you sleep. Your mattress should be replaced when it's no longer providing adequate support for any of these critical areas of your body. In order to determine whether your mattress is in need of a replacement ask yourself these questions:
1.Is the mattress more then 7 years old?
2.Do you wake up with back, neck, shoulder, or hip pain?
3.Do you spend more than 10-15 minutes tossing and turning before you can get to sleep?
4.Do you frequently experience "dead" legs or arms when you wake up?
5.Is your mattress sagging, lumpy, starting to come apart or showing visible signs of wear?
6.Have you recently noticed that other beds (at a mattress store, hotel, friend/family member's house) are more comfortable than your own?
While the life of a mattress depends on it's material and how well it was manufactured, if you answered "yes" to Question 1, then chances that its time to start looking for a replacement. We should note that a manufacturer's warranty does not necessarily guarantee that your mattress will continue to provide adequate support for the length of the warrantee. Usually a warranty simply means that a mattress manufacturer guarantee's against defects in quality. However, warranties do differ from one manufacturer to another, so be sure to read up on what the manufacturer of your current mattress has agreed to before purchasing a new mattress. If you answered "no" to Question 1, but "yes" to some of the other questions asked, then your bed may be new enough that it's not worn out, but it sounds like its not providing you with enough of or the right kind of support. There may also be special cases that warrant the purchase of a new mattress, such as when floods or damp conditions cause your bed to develop harmful mildew or mold.
Once you've determined that you'd be benefit from a new mattress, the next step involves making several key decisions that will help determine the mattress you'll go shopping for.
Determine What Size Mattress Is Right For You. Deciding what size mattress you need may be fairly straight forward. If you're simply replacing an existing mattress your decision is frequently limited by the size of the bed frame you're using. If you're looking to purchase a new mattress and frame here are some things you will want to consider:
1.How much space is there in the bedroom for a mattress?
2.How many people will be sleeping in the bed?
3.How satisfied were the people sleeping in the bed with the amount of space they had?
4.How much will it cost to upgrade to a larger bed, or how much will saved by purchasing a smaller mattress (not only the cost of the mattress, but also the sheets and bedding)?
Choosing a Mattress
The right mattress can significantly contribute to decreased back and neck pain, and increase the ability to feel rested after a good night's sleep. Using the wrong mattress can cause general aches and pains, aggravate any pre-existing pain, and lead to sleeplessness.
Many patients ask us, "What is the best mattress to buy?" Unfortunately, there has not been extensive medical research or controlled clinical trials on the topic of mattresses and back pain. (Claims that a mattress is "orthopedic" or "medically-approved" should therefore be viewed skeptically.) Mattresses are largely a matter of personal preference.
This is due to several factors:
1. There are many different types and causes of back problems. What works for one person might not be the best option for another.
2. Our bodies are all different. Different weights, heights, and builds may help dictate what one should look for in a mattress or pillow.
3. The causes of back pain are quite complex, and it's difficult to isolate whether or not a mattress or pillow has played a significant role in causing pain.
4. In addition to mattresses and pillows, there are other factors that affect sleep comfort. Medication side effects, irregular sleep patterns, use of caffeine/alcohol/tobacco, sleep apnea, obesity, and anxiety/stress are all common causes of disrupted sleep.
General Rules of Thumb When Choosing a Mattress
Most people prefer a firmer mattress that provides more support. A good mattress should provide support while allowing for the natural curves of the spine. A mattress is too soft if it sags, or if a second person in the bed causes the other to dip toward the center. Studies have found that a medium-firm mattress provides the best back support and alleviates the most back pain. A mattress that is too hard, though, causes aches and pains at pressure points, such as the shoulders and hips. A mattress is too firm if there are gaps between any part of your body and the mattress. Any mattress that helps a person sleep well, so that he/she awakes feeling rested and refreshed, without pain or stiffness, is the best mattress for that individual.
The following physical components are the important features of most high-quality mattresses:
Springs and Coils
These give firmness for back support. The wire in the coils can be varying thicknesses. Lower gauge wire is thicker and stiffer, meaning the mattress is firmer. A greater quantity of coils indicates a higher-quality mattress.
This is the part that provides comfort. Padding is usually made of polyurethane foam, puffed-up polyester, or cotton batting. Some mattresses have a foam layer just below the quilted top layer. Softer foams feel almost moist to the touch, and firmer foams do not spring back as quickly. Below this layer, there is a layer of cotton batting that caused the mattress to feel firmer in areas such as the middle of the mattress. Finally, there is an insulation layer that lies on top of the coil springs so that they cannot be felt from the top of the mattress. It also protects the coils from damaging the top layers.
Mattress Ticking and Quilting
The outer layer of a mattress is the ticking, a polyester or cotton-polyester blend. The mattress quilting attaches the ticking to the top layers of padding. A good quality mattress has consistent, unbroken stitching.
