Why does my mattress cause back pain?

There are so many reasons why your mattress can contribute to your back pain. The biggest culprit though is sleeping on the wrong mattress. If you don’t choose the right surface for your sleep habits, you might develop issues like neck stiffness and shoulder aches on top of chronic back pain.

Besides hurting your back, the wrong mattress could reduce your sleep quality and leave you not feeling so great in the morning. Here, are some telltale signs that your mattress could be hurting you rather than helping:

  4. Your mattress feels too hard or soft
  5. Your mattress is older than 7-8 years old
  6. You’re tired upon waking up
