best mattress for sciatica.

My daughter has sciatica and needs to get a new mattress? Any recommendations? I have a tempurpedic ,but I don't think that would give her enough support.
thanks ,Kate

Re: best mattress for sciatica.

Hi, best solution for sciatica would be an Acupressure Mat, a few 20-40 min sessions will make a huge difference.
Good luck.

Re: best mattress for sciatica.

mattresses are always a tough call as what some folk like others dont.

is she a back sleeper or stomach sleeper?

personally I like very firm mattresses as Im a stomach sleeper.

best bet it hit a bedding store and have her lie on one for hours (in her normal sleeping position) if need be. any good mattress store will let you lie on a bed all day. seriously.

Re: best mattress for sciatica.

We ended up with a Sterns and Foster with a good pillow top. It is very well made and firm underneath. It was HEAVEN after the hospital bed. Now I feel like I am sleeping on enough pillow top to make my curves comfortable but supportive of my back.

Blessings,
Michelle

Re: best mattress for sciatica.

I would also look at the Sleep Number beds since the firmness can be adjusted at will. I loved my 4 year old mattress before surgery, but now I wish I had something softer. A Sleep Number would have given me that option.

Re: best mattress for sciatica.

We have a Dormia Bed. It is the most comfortable bed ever. It is a latex foam bed, but not like Temperpedic. I tried out just about every bed known to man, and the Dormia won, hands down. I did not like the way I sunk into the Temperpedic. Also I live in a warm climate and I heard they can make you very hot.

I suggest you go out and try as many as you can. Good luck.
