  • when I hurt my back I bought a memory foam one 9 years ago. I need to update because the old memory foam don't have a cooling pad but there's some great options out there. Your Dr. or Physio may have suggestions for you. I'm just letting you know what I bought that helped relieve my back pain but I still have back painful but sleep better than the old fashioned bed I had. I heard after 8 years get a new mattress but just something I heard not advice.

    I read that sleeping in a recliner can hurt your hips so you may want to speak with your Dr.
