Hi, Could you help me in selecting the best mattress for myself ? Until now I have been sleeping on a hand made mattress that was made by a guy in my neighborhood, it mostly has cotton and may be coir too. I never had any issues with it so far. Now I am getting married and moving to a new house, new furniture etc. My wife insists that we get Kurlon / Peps / Sleepwell etc form the market. Now these too have several options. I have heard stories about these commercial mattress causing back pain, spondylitis and other spine related issues . It's time that I know the real story. I searched the web but did not a satisfactory answer . Hoping you can help. Thanks, XXXX

Brief Answer: You can go for orthopaedic mattress. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. You can go for orthopaedic mattress. These type of mattress specifically designed to support the overall muscular skeletal body especially the back and joints. These are firm to very firm mattresses designed to provide maximum support and better weight distribution to gently relieve sleep pressure points that can cause aches and pains. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
