Some mattress companies like to proclaim that they sell the best mattress for hip pain that money can buy. However, these mattress companies tend to resort to a one-size-fits-all solution that won’t work for every customer struggling with hip pain. At Texas Mattress Makers, we know that every sleeper needs a mattress that fits their specific needs. What helps relieve hip pain for one person may not work for you.
The truth is, if a bad mattress causes body pain, it could be that you’re not sleeping on the right mattress for your body. If a mattress is too soft for your individual body type, or too firm that it is causing too much pressure on your hip joints, this can lead to pain in your hips while getting out of bed that can last throughout the day. The best mattress for hip pain is a mattress that suits your individual sleep needs for a more comfortable night’s sleep.
How to find the best mattress for hip pain for you: Debunking mattress myths
The experts at Texas Mattress Makers are here to debunk some popular statements other mattress retailers will tell you about finding the best mattress for hip pain.
Myth 1: One type of mattress is best for hip pain
If you search “best mattress for hip pain“ on the internet, you’re going to find an overwhelming amount of results. Lots of sleepers just like you are looking for answers to their questions. Is a firm or soft mattress better for hip pain?Should I sleep on my back if I have hip pain? Is a memory foam or coil component better?
Don’t worry –– the answer is quite simple. The best mattress for hip pain is a mattress that is going to make you the most comfortable as you sleep and give you the best support and pressure point relief. The goal is that you choose a mattress with the right balance of comfort and support to achieve a neutral spine position as you sleep, regardless of your preferred sleeping position. There are many recommendations for certain mattress types for different sleepers –– however, regardless of whether you prefer a memory foam or an innerspring mattress, the right mattress for you depends on what you need to get the best night’s sleep yet. Luckily, the team at Texas Mattress Makers can help you figure that out whether you ask us online via chat or email, or if you come into one of our convenient Houston locations. Our goal is to find you the right mattress and educate you as to why certain components might be better than others when it comes to your perfect mattress.
Myth 2: Only one particular mattress is the best solution for anyone with hip pain
As we have mentioned time and time again, no mattress is one-size-fits-all. As an individual, you have a unique set of sleep needs which makes finding a mattress that ticks off all of your boxes extremely important.
The following factors are key to finding what type of mattress may be best suited for you:
- Body type:Choosing a mattress type for your body is one of the most helpful tactics we use to help customers find the perfect mattress. Your body type can help us determine how your body will interact with certain mattresses. This can lead us to the types of materials that may support you best, your preferred firmness level (soft, medium, or hard), and your preferred sleep position. All of these elements factor into providing you with a personalized mattress choice.
- Body weight: In the mattress industry, we care more about where you carry your weight on your body as opposed to how much you weigh. If you carry more weight in your shoulders and chest, you will have different support needs than someone who carries more body weight in their midsection and hips! Especially when you are someone that deals with hip pain, knowing where your main pressure points are and how your weight is placed will help us choose the perfect mattress for you.
- Sleep position: Side, back, stomach, combination…we all have a preferred sleeping position. The position that you choose to sleep in determines what areas of your body will have the most contact with the mattress. These are the areas that will feel the most pressure through the night. As long as you have a mattress with the right amount of support and comfort for your body, you can toss and turn in any sleep position as you please.
- Comfort preference: Comfort is key to managing hip pain as you sleep. Depending on what your preferences are, we will help you find a mattress that will keep you comfortable while alleviating your hip pain through the night. Our vast selection of handmade mattresses offers a wide range of firmness options from ultra-soft to ultra-firm so you are likely to find a comfort level that fits your needs.
