Best Mattress for Hip Pain

Hip pain is a problem which may disturb a person in every posture in everyday life. The pain may originate within the hip joint or in the groin. A pain around the hip joint is usually related to weakness or injury in muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues. Hip pain may also be a referred pain caused by diseases or injury in other parts of the body, such as lower back. The main causes of hip pain, in a nutshell, are:

    • Arthritis
    • Injuries
    • Pinched nerves
    • Cancer
    • Infections like osteomyelitis

Whatever may be the cause of hip pain, you have to consult the doctor if pain is not controlled with over-the-counter pain relievers and through application of ice pack or heat. However, the most important pain reliever is REST, as pointed out repeatedly by doctors. You must immobilize the joint and avoid putting direct pressure on the hip. Herein lies the importance of right mattress, your most trusted friend in hip pain management. It can only provide the much-needed support, along with softness, while you are resting.

In the case of side or back sleepers, a medium-firm memory foam mattress is ideal to provide a support, so that one can keep the spine straight while one sleeps. But for stomach sleepers, a pillow top mattress or a hybrid one, with an innerspring may be the right purchase.
