I already have back problems from tumbling but my old mattress isn't helping the matter either. What can I do if we can't afford a new mattress?

In brief: Exercise
One of the most effective solutions for anyone with back pain/problems is to strengthen the muscles of the torso with exercises that target flexibility and strength building in the muscles of the abdomen, upper back, and lower back.
Just be sure to have your doctor make sure there are not any more serious issues before you begin a new exercise regimen.

In brief: Be creative
Use blankets to support the sagging area of your mattress.
You can also try to get it repaired...
