Hello,

I am looking to buy a good mattress for my wife who had delivered baby last year, since then shes complaining about bad backache now its becoming untollerable pain for her.

Not sure if this is due to matress we have, so planing to change mattress and see if this helps her.

Any ideas of a good matress available in market ? Not sure which matress to go for any thought or suggestions would be great help for us.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Did your wife have an epidural during labour? If so, that is likely the cause of her back pain. I never had any back pain in my entire life until I had that epidural. I had lower back pain from it starting the very next day. She should see a doctor about this, there are things they can do.

yes- she had both pathedine and epidural as well .. We have consulted GP many times but no success. Is your pain cured now?

A chiropractor treats disorders related to the nervous system by manipulating the musculoskeletal system (made up of the bones and muscles) of the patient. Chiropractors particularly focus on making adjustments to the spine to improve its alignment. search on google for a local one near you. but i would listen to therealslimkaty as iv no experince in tht area lol. but been to a chiropractor befor and they sorted my back out.

Would agree with all the posts above.

As for where to buy a mattress, we've had a couple from mattress man, been very happy with them.

I can highly recommend memory foam mattress pads as a cheaper alternative to changing your mattress.

I've got a fairly cheap mattress that I didn't find very comfortable, and got a memory foam pad for it a couple of years ago and it's made quite a big difference. When we've had guests over and I've given up my bed for them, they always comment on how comfy my bed is!

Mine was from Rosebys, but they went into administration. I'm sure if you do an internet search you'll come up with loads though :) some of them can be expensive, mine wasn't, and it's fine, so I don't think you need to spend too much on one.

Hope your wife's back gets better soon!

Try ikea they have excellent toppers so no need to buy a new matt may be due to weight gain after carrying the baby for the 9 months should get some relief but there are tens machins which may help lloyds chemist do them or a simple massage or deep heat rub
Congats on yr new baby hope all goes well

Go to Dreams to see which mattress suits you, but DO NOT buy from them. They are way too expensive ! We chose the Sleepeezee Cairo in their store at £1150, discounted to £950 and offered to us for £850. A bit of Googling later and I discovered that the same mattress could be had for under £400 but named the Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate 2000. We've had it for a few weeks now and it's very firm, designed for people with back problems, but it suits us and we're sleeping well on it. We bought from [url]www.bedworld.net[/url]

Hi

I have a bad back and have spent 2 years looking for a mattress and the best I tried was a Dunlopillo sprung mattress with a pure latex top.

If you buy from a shop they will be hugely expensive but if you go to beds4you based in Worcestershire they have slight seconds which have nothing wrong with them that I can find, and I have recommended them to many friends who have bought from them and are happy!!!

Latex is natural so bedbugs cannot survive in them which is a bonus and can help with breathing as well and will not cause excessive heat and sweating.

I now have pure latex and it is the best thing I bought. Please do not go for orthopaedic hard mattress as it is the worst thing you can buy if you go online for advice from medical council a mattress should keep your spine straight by putting your shoulders and botty down into mattress to keep spine straight. Any doc will tell you not to get a hard mattress. I know as I bought 3 of them and had to sell them as worst thing I did!!

Good luck as back pain sucks!!!

Not in my experience! Went to mine for lower back pain, ended up with neck problems, and it cost a fortune for the privilege!

No, I've been left with back pain since then. That was over nineteen years ago. They KNOW that there is a risk of life long back pain following epidural, that is why your wife had to sign a disclaimer before they gave her it, so she cant sue or anything at a later date.

I do believe though, that building the core muscles around her mid section will help to ease the pain. I've had other problems too, meaning that I couldnt keep that up. My pain did get less though, and it comes and gos. Don't let the GP fob you off though, this IS a known problem with epidurals, he should refer your wife to a back specialist. I've just done some googling and it would appear that this IS quite a common problem, but also that a lot of women with this, have the pain dissapear by a year after the birth. I also saw that she could have a steroid injection into the area to relieve the pain in the meantime. I've had several steroid injections recently, into different joints and they have been excellent.

The comfiest mattress I have EVER slept on since I've had a sore back, was last year in a B&B in Fort William :p The lady who owned the place told me it was from Dreams in their sale and it was called Suprapedic or Superpedic. It was a kingsize mattress and she said it cost around £300. She had got one for herself and had a great sleep, then went with her husband the next day to buy a load more to replace all their guest room mattresses. It was a soft, very comfortable, yet supportive mattress. I would totally agree with the above, that an "orthopaedic" hard mattress is terrible. I find softer mattresses much more comfortable as they mould better to the body and provide support.

Good luck, I hope your wife feels better soon.

A chiropractor would disagree. It may suit you, but the idea of a firm mattress is to keep the spine as straight as possible. A soft one will conform to your body shape and its weight distribution, often leaving the spine curved unnaturally and exaggerating the condition. We have a 2000 pocket sprung Sleepeezee Backcare Ultimate which was £378 delivered (£1150 list price plus £35 delivery in Dreams :thinking: ) and it's brilliant, although many people might consider it too firm. We use a 3" memory foam topper on it to give a little initial softness to the feel whilst retaining the overall rigidity and keeping it to the point of an orthopaedic mattress.
