In brief: Mattress

I recommend going to your local mattress store and trying out what is the best mattress for your comfort.
There are many different materials used for mattresses, including foam (even with different levels of firmness). There are no "recommended" mattresses for back pain, but most of my patients prefer more of a firm support.
