In addition to the chosen material, which can be spring-loaded, in memory or latex just to mention the most common and sold, a single orthopedic mattress is the one that has the least possible number of pressure zones: this pressure is exerted by the mattress on our body and can cause pain in the lumbar, cervical, or joint areas, etc. Therefore, a single mattress, which must meet the needs of a single person, must have few pressure zones to be considered of good quality, and at the same time encourage the user to assume the correct alignment of the spine, neck, and head, resulting in therefore anatomical and ergonomic.
If until recently it was believed that an orthopedic mattress was only the rigid one for specific back problems, today experts consider in this way any mattress is able to model itself perfectly on the lines and the shape of the body, preventing from the beginning the formation of painful pathologies that in the medium and long term could seriously harm our health.

The speech is even more complex if one of the two partners, or even both, suffer from problems and need an orthopedic mattress that is able to alleviate the pain: in these cases the only thing to do is to consult the doctor who trusts can guide you towards the right purchase, even more so if the two partners have divergent clinical needs, in order to find the best possible compromise as a double mattress.
