What Is The Best Mattress For Someone With Arthritis?

Everybody deserves to go to bed at night knowing that they’ll get a restful night’s sleep. Along with your diet and your exercise regimen, your sleeping patterns are one of the biggest factors in determining your overall health.

It’s while we’re fast asleep that our bodies are hardest at work repairing and maintaining themselves so that we can wake up the next morning a little stronger, a little healthier, and a little better prepared for the challenges of the day.

A good night’s sleep starts with a good mattress. Your mattress is essential in helping you to sleep restfully without waking in the night. However, a mattress that is old, worn, or poorly designed can be a real impediment to healing and restful sleep.

This is an important consideration for anyone, but for those who suffer from arthritis, it’s vital. Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that can lead to serious joint pain throughout the day and the night. A mattress that’s lacking comfort and support can put undue stress on the joints and lead to jolts of pain. This pain either prevents you from dozing off at night or wakes you from your slumber.

This is especially frustrating when you consider the importance of sleep.

The Importance Of A Good Night’s Sleep When You Have Arthritis

Sleep is particularly important for those with arthritis. Healthy sleep can help to alleviate the inflammation that comes with arthritis and even help with pain management. Doctors recommend that people with arthritis should get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep every night. This may be easier said than done when your mattress is keeping you awake or exacerbating your joint pain.

The Best Mattress for Arthritis

So, which are the best mattresses for people with arthritis? We’ll go through some recommendations, but don’t forget that this represents a fraction of our range. The best way to find the right mattress for you is to visit one of our mattress stores in Las Vegas and St. George, UT, and talk to one of our friendly and knowledgeable representatives.


Tempur has a sterling reputation for using cutting-edge technologies to give you a great night’s sleep. The technology at work in the Tempur-Pedic mattress range is particularly helpful for those with arthritis.

For starters, the upper layer is made using the brand’s SMARTCLIMATE® Dual Cover System which keeps your skin cool. Feeling overheated can exacerbate swelling and inflammation, and the upper layer can cool and soothe the skin without harmful chemicals.

Beneath this is a comfort layer that allows your joints to feel properly supported without making them feel under pressure. The mattress works hard to evenly distribute your weight for optimal comfort.

Finally, you have a choice between a soft or firm underlying layer. We recommend choosing the firm option if you have arthritis. This should give you the right combination of comfort, support, and cooling for restful sleep time after time. What’s more, Tempur-Pedic has such confidence in the quality of their design and materials that they offer a 25-year guarantee that few other manufacturers can match.

As a Tempur-Pedic store, we can help you to choose a Tempur-Pedic mattress to suit your needs.
