Nearly 65 million Americans deal with back pain and 8% of all adults have persistent or chronic back pain. There are a lot of factors that can contribute to back pain, but your mattress shouldn't be one of them. If you're dealing with a subpar sleep surface (or in need of a new mattress for upcoming overnight holiday guests), it's time to do something about it. Luckily, there are a slew of mattresses marked down as part of Wayfair's Way Day October 2023 sale. Hurry, though: The sale ends tonight! That means you only have a few more hours to save up to 80% on mattresses from Sealy, Beautyrest and more, starting at just over $200.
Alwyn Home Sedgefield 8" Medium Innerspring Mattress
So, what should you look for in a new mattress? There's not one single mattress that's perfect for all people who have back pain, Dr. Harrison A. Linder, a pain management specialist in Baltimore, Maryland, tells Yahoo Life. "The multitude of options can be overwhelming, but most people prefer a medium-firm option," Linder says. These mattresses are usually firm enough to give you much-needed support, regardless of what sleep position you prefer, he says.
An innerspring mattress offers more of a traditional feel. This option from Alwyn Home has pocket coils, along with a memory foam top for a comfortable feel. The heavy-duty coils offer durability, while edge support keeps you from accidentally rolling out of bed.
