Question: Has anyone on this list found that buying a new bed or mattress has helped their back/neck shoulder/aches? As I’m starting to notice that different beds really affect how my achy muscles feel in the morning. Feel a bit like the Princess and the Pea! Anyone tried the special orthopaedic mattresses? Are they worth the money?
Answer: I have a futon and it has to be the best bed I’ve ever had. I had regular visits to the chiropractor for aches and pains and all that has now stopped. I have the basic futon model and have readjusted it by placing an extra piece of wood after the 3rd slat from the head to provide more support, and a pillow tucked placed between the mattress and the frame at the foot end.
