I have scoliosis. What is the best mattress for me?

A couple of options

Sleep
Hi there, I've seen two options work best for patients. First, there are the Sleep Number beds. These beds allow you to customize the firmness to your liking. On average, I'd say the firm mattresses usually are more effective for scoliosis patients. The second option are the Tempurpedic mattresses. These tend to have excellent overall back support, but do tend to be firm. I hope this info helps!

What's the best brand mattress for someone who suffers from a bad back and is a side sleeper? I have scoliosis and hip pain.

Whichever helps

There is no "magic" mattress. The best one is the one that makes you feel the best. This is essentially a matter of opinion.

What is the best mattress for old overweight people?

Try then out

The best mattress is the most comfortable mattress. Generally, one that doesn't sag is better for your back. I think a soft covering is nice. Most stores will let you lie down and try it. Don't be shy!

Which is the best mattress for cervical spondylitis?

The one you like

Spondylitis
There is no best mattress for cervical spondylitis. The type of mattress depends more on how you sleep, generally softer for side sleepers, firmer for back and stomach sleepers. More important for neck pain is a proper pillow. Generally a thicker pillow for side sleepers to keep your spine in a neutral position. You need to try them out and see what feels best.

What is the best mattress/cushion for preventing bed sores?

No pressure, no sore

Open-uri20130310-20044-1rb4hlq
is the general rule. People with normal sensation and mobility never stay in one position for too long. Pressure over a bony prominence can cause skin injury in as little as two hours. That is why debilitated patients and those with spinal cord injuries are placed on pressure-relieving mattresses, turned and repositioned frequently and checked for the presence of early pressure sores frequently.

What is the best type of mattress and pillow for stiff neck?

What works for you

There is no science behind mattresses and pillows. Just lots of sales pitches. Find one that works for you and seems comfortable. Most mattress stores will allow you to return a mattress within a few weeks time if it is really uncomfortable for you. Pillows should support your neck at a neutral angle. Personally, I've found the shaped pillows from Brookstone work great.
