Memory foam mattresses are usually a little pricier than spring mattresses. However, they last for 8-10 years as opposed to 3-5, so ultimately, purchasing a memory foam mattress will save you money in the long run.
Some items are a major investment and require some thought before you buy. One such item is a Stearns and Foster mattress or any other quality mattress for that matter. The following tips will help to ensure that you buy the best mattress for you.
The real reason for foam encasement is that it saves the manufacturer lots of money. Plastic foam is much less expensive than spring steel. Foam encasing a mattress reduces the amount of spring steel used by eighteen percent. Then it gives the manufacturer a marketing ploy (marketing spin) to promote their mattresses and to convince the customer to pay more money for the extra feature. Manufacturers of latex and memory foam mattresses also employ this tactic. Please read our other articles and learn the many other crafty things mattress manufacturers do to rip off their customers!
People with degenerative spondylolisthesis or osteoarthritis may prefer an adjustable bed (one that is at a slight incline) as it minimizes joint compression. This type of bed may also be helpful for those who suffer from gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). Patients who have hip bursitis (inflammation of the bursa over the hips) are especially susceptible to pain from a mattress that is too firm. Thick pillow tops or egg crate mattress pads may provide some relief.
