Walk into any Los Angeles mattress store and it immediately becomes clear that mattresses come in many types. From memory foam cores, to latex, to innerspring supports, there is a lot to take into consideration while at the mattress store. The crux of any good mattress is the support. Unless a soft core is wanted, such as memory foam, latex foam, or air, innerspring is the most commonly purchased type of mattress. That almost sounds simple. But there are different types of innerspring support systems, and they should be considered when mattress shopping. The effectiveness of the wire coil gauge is directly related to the support system used. This means that different systems require different gauge steel coils. As a result, each type of innerspring system has different effects on the sleeper.
I was so surprised to find just the right thing at the first place we stopped that I asked if there was anything else he might like to do while we were out. I was totally surprised when he said we should go look at mattresses. One, because he just absolutely hates to shop, and two, because he just absolutely hates to spend money; even when we have it. But I think the muscle relaxant the nurse practioner prescribed for him was making him a bit more mellow than usual; it was certainly making him more patient. Or maybe he was thinking that our old mattress was part of his problem. He didn't say. So I loaded him along with the two new chairs (no, I didn't make him sit in the cargo space) into my Jeep and we made the short drive to the local mall.
Different mattress models feature different ranges of materials in the comfort layers. To further convolute the situation, many bed mattress manufacturers have proprietary arrangements with the manufacturers of materials that go into comfort layers. As it is difficult to comparison shop from one Los Angeles mattress store to another because different mattress stores offer different mattress models from the same manufacturers, it is also difficult to comparison shop across comfort layers. The best thing to do is select a couple of mattresses from one showroom, then research the components before finalizing a decision.
People with degenerative spondylolisthesis or osteoarthritis may prefer an adjustable bed (one that is at a slight incline) as it minimizes joint compression. This type of bed may also be helpful for those who suffer from gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). Patients who have hip bursitis (inflammation of the bursa over the hips) are especially susceptible to pain from a mattress that is too firm. Thick pillow tops or egg crate mattress pads may provide some relief.
