The layers vary in length and thickness and are strategically placed to provide different zones of customized comfort and response.

Features

The Casper’s newest addition to their design, which makes it excellent for sciatica sufferers, is the zoned layering of materials to concurrently provide different levels of firmness for different regions of the body. A firmer feel is targeted at the lumbar region to provide more support for your hips and lower back. The area around your shoulders has a softer feel to provide pressure relief. Together, the different zones of the Casper Mattress promote healthy spinal alignment so you can wake up feeling refreshed and with minimal pain.

Casper uses open-celled foams in their mattresses to help you sleep cool all night. While they do a good job of minimizing heat retention, it should be noted that this mattress still does retain a minimal amount of heat, but will be suitable for most sleepers.

Due to the combination of high-quality foams used in the Casper Mattress, motion transfer is isolated and dispersed before causing any disturbance on the surface of the bed. Compared to an innerspring mattress or a hybrid, this bed has superior motion isolation capability.

Pros:
  • Zoned support promotes healthy spinal alignment
  • Universal feel makes this mattress great for all sleep positions
  • Affordable on most budgets
  • Lower profile allows easy access for those with limited mobility
  • Excellent motion isolation
Cons:
  • Slight off-gassing period
  • Some lighter or smaller people find it is too firm
  • Slight sizing variation causes mattresses to fluctuate by 1-2 inches
  • Retains some heat
  • Limited white glove delivery area

2. Nest Bedding’s Alexander Signature Series (Luxury Choice)

Nest Beddings Alexander

The Alexander Signature Series Mattress is our top luxury pick for best bed for sciatica pain. It is comprised of four layers of foam: 4 lb. gel foam memory foam, 4 lb. visco memory foam, 1.8 lb. Smart Flow foam, and 1.8 lb. solid edge support base foam. All of the layers combined provide you with a comfortable mattress that promotes healthy spinal alignment, reduces pain in the morning, and increases restful sleep that conforms and responds to you.

Features

The two different firmness options available in the Alexander Signature Series Mattress, Medium and Luxury Firm, allow you as the consumer to decide which will suit you best. This is a major perk that gives the mattress a more universal appeal that can cater to all sleep needs and preferences. The layers of foam provide pressure relief and support for sciatica sufferers by allowing them to sleep on their side without sacrificing support in specific areas.

Temperature regulation is achieved in the Alexander Signature Series Mattress through the breathable quilted cover made from Cool Stretch fabric, the layer of gel-infused memory foam, and the layer of SmartFlow foam. Combined, these materials allow airflow to penetrate the inner layers of the mattress so it can remain cool and comfortable all night long, even if you tend to overheat on traditional foam mattresses.

The combination of dense and supportive foams in this mattress also ensures minimal motion transfer across the surface of the bed. The different layers of foam work together to absorb and redistribute energy and motion before it has a chance to disturb you or your sleeping partner.

Pros:
  • Varying firmness options provide customized support
  • Superior temperature regulation
  • Great for all sleep positions
  • Excellent motion isolation
  • Lifetime warranty suggests long-lasting durability
Cons:
  • Slight off-gassing period
  • Consumer confusion regarding purchasing the right firmness level
  • It may be too heavy for one person to move easily
  • Lacks ample edge support for heavier couples
  • May not be affordable on a strict budget

3. The Nectar Mattress (Best Value Option)

Nectar Bed

Overview

  • Type: 3 layers of memory foam with an additional dense foam base
  • Firmness: 5.5-7.5
  • Height: 11 inches
  • In-home trial period: 365 nights
  • Warranty: Forever
  • Size: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

The Nectar mattress is comprised of four layers. The first is a quilted gel layer of memory foam, the next is another gel layer of memory foam, then an adaptive high core layer of memory foam, and lastly a breathable layer for its base. Nectar’s mattress provides superior contour and responsiveness that is soft enough for a side sleeper, without sacrificing support.

Features

The layers of memory foam allow this mattress to excel in pressure relief and the promotion of healthy spinal alignment. The level of firmness on this mattress is designed to be suitable for all sleep positions. Of course there are some outliers, but for the most part, we found this to be accurate. The adaptive high core memory foam layer allows this mattress to feel soft while still providing ample support.

Airflow and breathability are facilitated by the Tencel moisture wicking cover, the layer of quilted gel memory foam, the layer of gel memory foam, and the breathable base layer. The gel infusion in two of the memory foam layers does a lot to mitigate heat retention, as does the material of the cover. However, the Casper site credits the breathable base layer as the most important variable affecting proper air circulation. In fact, they say that the base layers’ ability to facilitate airflow is one of the main reasons they are willing and able to offer a forever warranty on their mattresses.

Memory foam is known for being able to absorb shock and energy transfer so it’s no surprise that the Nectar Mattress is great with motion isolation. The memory foam performs well in this mattress and motion isolation is all but eliminated allowing you to sleep without disturbance.

Pros:
  • Excellent motion isolation
  • Forever warranty and full year trial period suggests superior durability
  • Promotes healthy spinal alignment and conformability
  • Low profile height allows easy access for those with limited mobility
  • Affordable on most budgets

  • It may be too heavy to move alone
  • Medium firmness does not suit all sleepers’ preferences

4. The New Purple Mattress (Best For Side Sleepers)

Purple

Overview

  • Type: Hybrid mattress with proprietary Smart Comfort Grid
  • Firmness: Firm: 6.5, Medium: 5.5, Soft: 4.5
  • Height:  Firm: 11 inches, Medium: 12 inches, Soft: 13 inches
  • In-home trial period: 100 nights
  • Warranty: 10 years
  • Size: Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

The New Purple Mattress is a hybrid mattress that incorporates a layer of their unique Smart Comfort Grid, a layer of dense polyurethane foam, and a thick layer of pocketed springs. Combined, these materials provide comfort, contour, and response that is unlike other mattresses, largely because of the proprietary Smart Comfort Grid that was invented solely for their mattresses. The Smart Comfort Grid varies in thickness depending upon which firmness option you choose and is an innovation that has yet to be mimicked or replicated.

Features

The New Purple Mattress comes in three different firmness options. With these choices, rest assured you will get the level of supportiveness you need to promote healthy spinal alignment so you can wake up feeling refreshed, and hopefully pain-free. The Smart Comfort Grid also excels at pressure point relief. Purple has a little video you can view on their site which demonstrates the Grid’s ability to prevent an egg from cracking when weight is placed on top of it, which is pretty impressive.

Purple’s Smart Comfort Grid is also credited with making their mattresses excel in temperature regulation. The polymer material used to construct it is temperature neutral, and the open grid design is breathable and adaptive. The base layer of coils also allows air to penetrate the mattress without being retained. Instead, the airflow continues to circulate while dissipating heat that is released from the mattress and your body.

The best mattress for sciatic nerve pain will also excel in motion isolation, and the New Purple does a great job of this, even with its layer of coils which often hinder proper motion isolation. Once again, we are going to credit the Smart Comfort Grid for enabling the New Purple to be great, and it definitely helps eliminate motion transfer as well. Purple claims their mattresses use zero motion-transfer technology, and for the most part, it works amazingly.

Pros:
  • Innovative Smart Comfort Grid design supports your natural shape
  • Three different firmness options available
  • Superior pressure relief
  • Extremely durable and long-lasting
  • Advanced contour and motion isolation
Cons:
  • May not be affordable on a strict budget
  • Heavy and hard to move
  • Temperature neutral, not actively cooling
  • Some consumer confusion ordering the appropriate firmness level
  • It may be too bouncy for some who prefer a slower response

5. Winkbed’s Luxury Hybrid (Top Pick For Stomach Sleepers)

Winkbeds

Overview

  • Type: Hybrid
  • Firmness: Soft: 4.5, Luxury Firm: 6.5, Firm: 7.5, Plus 8
  • Height: 14 inches
  • In-home trial period: 120 nights
  • Warranty: Lifetime
  • Size: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

The Winkbed mattress is our top pick for stomach sleepers with sciatica, even though we don’t usually recommend this sleep position for people with lower back pain. The Winkbed is a luxury hybrid mattress that consists of a Euro-pillow top, a layer of breathable micro air-springs, a layer of stabilizing gel foam, and a layer of individually wrapped coils that enable this mattress to be comfortable, conforming, and responsive all at the same time.

Features

The Winkbed is available in four firmness options. You should consider your height, weight, and whether or not you sleep with a partner, but we recommend a softer bed for sciatica sufferers because it will allow them to comfortably sleep on their stomach while still supporting their natural shape. The Winkbed incorporates additional lumbar support which is a very beneficial trait to consider because it facilitates healthy spinal alignment while you sleep.

Temperature regulation is achieved through the Winkbeds’ heat wicking Tencel cover, the gel-infused Euro-top, the micro air springs, and the base layer of pocketed coils. All together they draw heat away from your skin and disperse it throughout the bed until it dissipates or exits the material entirely. Winkbed does a great job of allowing you to sleep cool all night long without overheating.

Due to the multiple layers of coil and the Euro-pillow top, this mattress does transfer some motion, but it is minimal. The materials do a pretty good job of reducing the energy or motion released into the bed but it does not completely eliminate them.

Pros:
  • 4 different firmnesses for customizable support
  • A 3-step back relief system with additional lumbar support ensures healthy spinal alignment
  • Extra edge support maximizes usable surface area
  • Ample airflow provides advanced temperature regulation
  • Targeted pressure relief
Cons:
  • It may be too tall for those with limited mobility
  • May not be affordable on a strict budget
  • Too heavy for one person to move alone
  • Slight motion transfer
  • Some consumer confusion regarding the correct firmness for their needs

6. The Layla Mattress (Best For Back Sleepers)

Layla Mattress

  • Height: 10 inches
  • In-home trial period: 120 nights
  • Warranty: Lifetime
  • Size: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King

The Layla Mattress is our top pick for back sleepers with sciatica. The Layla Mattress is comprised of a layer of copper and gel-infused memory foam on top, a layer of convoluted airflow foam, a layer of base foam support, and another layer of copper and gel-infused memory foam on the bottom. The layers of copper-infused foam are designed to help improve circulation and promote a night of healthier sleep.

Features

Compared to other reviews on our list, we think this is the most unique. The amazing thing about the Layla is that it has a “flippable” design. One side is firmer while the other side is plusher so you can change the level of supportiveness you receive as frequently as you want. A design like this makes it an excellent option for a guest room as well because it would allow you to cater to your guest’s preference in a more customizable manner. Regardless of which side you decide to sleep on, this mattress is great for back sleepers because it will promote healthy spinal alignment and pressure relief.

The layers of gel infused copper foam that sandwich the mattress interior does an excellent job at absorbing heat and cooling the surface. The layer of convoluted foam below on one side also helps promote better airflow and breathability near the center of the bed while you sleep.

The layers of foam in the Layla Mattress also help with the elimination of motion transfer across the surface of the bed. You and a partner can sleep on this bed and not be disturbed by additional and unexpected motion.

Pros:
  • Flippable design allows you to have multiple firmness options in one bed
  • Lighter and easier to move than many of the competitors
  • Copper-infused memory foam improves circulation
  • Superior pressure point relief and conforming ability for back sleepers
  • Excellent motion isolation

Features

The Loom & Leaf comes in two different firmness options so you can customize the bed to suit your sleep position without sacrificing support and comfort. The layers of foam in this mattress provide excellent pressure relief while promoting healthy spinal alignment in every sleep position.

Due to its entirely foam construction, this mattress does retain a slight amount of heat. However, the layer of Spinal Zone Gel does help reduce this possible issue significantly. The organic cotton cover also helps promote airflow and breathability overall.

Sciatic Nerve Pain Q&A

a person experiencing pain on the lower backIf you want to buy a mattress that helps with sciatic nerve pain, first it is important to understand the basics. The following sections will guide you and explain what sciatica is, the possible forms of treatment, the best sleep position for sufferers, and what traits you should look for in a mattress when trying to alleviate pain caused by sciatica. With all of this information, you will be able to move forward knowing you have the knowledge to make the decision that will suit your specific sleep needs perfectly.

What Is Sciatica And What Causes It?

Sciatica is caused when a spinal nerve root is compressed in the lower back. This often happens as a result of intervertebral disk degeneration, herniated disks, bone spurs, or spinal stenosis.

Symptoms include radiating pain in the lower back, hips, buttocks, and legs. Only one side of your body is affected in most sufferers but it is possible for it to occur on both the left and right side simultaneously. The level of pain fluctuates but can become severe and can even cause weakness and numbness in the affected areas.

How Is Sciatica Treated?

One way to relieve sciatic nerve pain involves stretching. By stretching the tiny muscles in your legs you can diminish inflammation which often causes pain by applying pressure to the sciatic nerve. Exercise that focuses on core strengthening may also help relieve pressure from swelling by enabling your spine to stay strong and supported by core muscles.

Practicing good posture on a consistent basis may also help relieve pressure for some sciatica pain sufferers by promoting proper spinal and hip alignment. This is particularly helpful for those who work sitting down and spend many hours in a chair throughout the day.

Another great way to help reduce sciatic nerve pain is by sleeping on the right kind of mattress. The right mattress will promote healthy spinal alignment while you sleep by supporting your back, hips, and legs exactly where they need it most.

Many people who suffer from sciatica find their pain is worse in the morning so in addition to sleeping on a great bed you may also want to try taking a hot bath before bed, elevating your knees slightly with a pillow while you sleep, or consider using a body pillow to help you maintain a comfortable position throughout the night.

In more serious cases, medical treatment is highly recommended and should be sought out. Often doctors will prescribe medications such as muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatories, anti-seizure medications, antidepressants, and prescription strength narcotics to help with the pain. In addition, a doctor may recommend physical therapy, steroid injections, or even surgery for those experiencing persistent and severe pain.

What Factors Increase Your Risk Of Developing Sciatica?

While no one is immune to developing sciatic nerve pain, there are some things that place you at greater risk:

1. Heavy Manual Labor

a worker who frequently carries heavy boxes is experiencing back painFrequent heavy lifting and hard manual labor can put stress on your back, hips, and legs which lead to sciatica if not done properly.

2. Diabetes

Diabetes puts you at a high risk of nerve damage all over your body which is a leading cause of sciatica.

3. Sitting For Long Periods Of Time

Similar to frequent heavy lifting, sitting for long periods of time can put stress on your lower back and hips. Those who sit at a desk all day run a higher risk of developing sciatica.

4. Obesity

Additional pressure and stress are placed on your bones, spine, and muscles when you are overweight which can lead to sciatic nerve pain.

5. Old Age

As you age, your body naturally starts to deteriorate and this includes your spine. The older you become, the higher risk you have of developing sciatica.

Is It Possible To Reduce Your Chances Of Developing Sciatic Nerve Pain?

The answer is yes! As we mentioned above, exercise with a focus on developing core strength and practicing good posture can help you to maintain a healthy spine and prevent sciatica in the future as well. Another important thing you can do to reduce your chances of developing sciatica is only using the proper technique when lifting heavy objects and moving large things. Make sure you bend at the knees and don’t place all of the strain on your back.

Is One Sleep Position Better For Sciatica Than Others?

If you have sciatica, you already know that sleeping comfortably can be a real issue. Mornings can be particularly difficult, even if you managed to get some real sleep throughout the night. Paired with the right amount of supportiveness provided by your mattress, the position you sleep in can make a big difference in the way you feel in the morning. Let’s explore which position is best for those that suffer from this pain and why.

Sleeping On Your Back

The benefits of this sleep position for people with sciatica depends on a few factors. If your mattress is too soft it could cause your hips and low back to sink in too far leading to pain in that region when you wake up. If you have the right mattress and choose to sleep on your back, it can help to facilitate healthy spinal alignment. Aside from placing a pillow beneath your knees, you can learn other ways how to sleep on your back properly. One more thing to consider is that sleeping on your back is not recommended if you snore a lot or have sleep apnea.

Sleeping On Your Side

This is the best sleeping position for people with sciatica. Sleeping on your side will alleviate pressure from your lower back and lumbar region. You can also promote healthy spinal alignment in this position by placing a pillow or rolled up towel between your knees. Try to keep your legs stacked instead of one in front of the other because this could cause unnecessary twisting of the spine.

Sleeping On Your Stomach

This is the worst sleep position for people with sciatica. Sleeping on your stomach can stretch and also twist your neck and back leading to pain in the morning. If you must sleep on your stomach because of some personal reason or preference, try placing a small pillow beneath your stomach to mimic a natural curve in your lower spine or try to find the right mattress for stomach sleepers. However, you may want to consider training yourself to sleep in another position if you have sciatic nerve pain.

How To Determine The Best Mattress For Sciatica

The following categories are the determining factors that established our list of reviews for the top 7 best mattresses for people suffering from sciatic nerve pain. Each of the categories below is considered important when thinking of buying a new mattress if you have sciatica because they will help you sleep more comfortably.

1. Type Of Mattress

The best mattress for sciatica sufferers is one that provides comfort and response to promote pressure relief in the targeted areas that need it most. Generally, memory foam and latex mattresses are best because they provide quick response and conform to your shape in a superior way compared to other mattress types like innerspring. Of course, there are some exceptions but a great way to know if the type of mattress you are considering is right for sciatic pain relief is by addressing the two following traits, firmness and support.

2. Firmness And Support

This may be the most important factor in a mattress for sufferers of sciatic nerve pain. Healthy spinal alignment is the best way to alleviate sciatica pain while you sleep. For this reason, the level of supportiveness your mattress provides is very important. You want to make sure it will have an even surface that will support your body at an appropriate firmness level.

The level of firmness is also very important to consider when determining the best bed for sciatica. Your mattress should allow you to sleep comfortably without being too soft or too firm so you can be supported and can sleep without disturbance. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the firmest, sufferers should aim for mattresses that rank around 7 or higher as they will want to get a mattress that is not too firm to conform to your body, but also not too soft to support you properly. Another consideration is that people who weigh more will want a firmer mattress. Adversely, those who are a bit lighter will want a softer mattress.

3. Temperature Regulation

If you suffer from sciatica you will want to sleep on a mattress that does an excellent job of regulating temperature. Any type of disturbance throughout the night, including overheating and sweating, could cause you to move quickly or change sleep positions throughout the night causing stress to your sciatic nerve and strain on your back. It is best to have a bed that promotes airflow and breathability so you can sleep comfortably without shifting positions more than necessary while you sleep.

4. Motion Isolation

Motion isolation should also be a priority in a mattress that is good for sciatica sufferers. Similar to temperature regulation, prevention of any type of disturbance while you sleep will help to promote healthy spinal alignment and prevent additional stress to the lumbar region. If you sleep with a partner, a pet, or you have to get up frequently throughout the night to use the restroom then you should definitely consider the potential of a new mattress for mitigating motion transfer before making your final decision on which bed is right for you.

5. Durability

Durability is an important trait to look for in the best type of mattress for sciatica. It is important that your mattress lasts for a long time without sagging or showing considerable signs of wear. When this happens it is important for sciatica sufferers to replace their bed right away to maintain healthy spinal alignment and prevent unnecessary pain and suffering. Sufferers should look for beds made of durable materials like latex and foam.

A good indicator of a mattress’ durability is seen in the company warranty and in-home trial period. These benefits ensure you, the consumer, that you are buying a high-quality product that you are guaranteed to like for a long time.

6. Ease Of Access

If you suffer from sciatica it is not uncommon to have limited mobility during times of a flare-up. Due to this, a bed that is too tall may be difficult to get into. If you have to lift your leg too high, it may strain your sciatic nerve and only make your pain worse.

Your height and the height of your bed frame should be considered when determining which mattress will allow you to gain access easily. Choose a low profile frame or a platform bed and if you are still concerned about ease of access, choose a mattress that is shorter as well.

7. Affordability And Budgeting

Buying a new mattress is a big decision, especially considering the amount of money you will spend. Not all budgets can afford a large investment right away and the price of a bed can play a large role in your final decision. Whatever you decide, remember that you will spend about a third of your life lying on this mattress, at least for the next eight to ten years, so don’t be too hesitant about spending a good amount of money on a great product that will help reduce pain and increase comfort overall.

Many mattress companies also offer hassle-free financing through third-party companies. This may be a good option for those unable to make a large purchase all at once.

8. Size, Weight, And Sleeping Partner

Aside from all of the other factors to consider, you will want to factor your size and weight into the new mattress equation as well. Smaller people, who weigh less will want to get a mattress that is a bit softer so you get the supportive feel needed. Larger people who weigh more will want to get a firmer mattress that will not compress as much under their weight. The same goes for couples as well. Additionally, couples will also want to consider a mattress with enhanced edge support. This helps to maximize the usable surface area and allows you and your partner to spread out while you sleep without the fear of sliding off the edge of the mattress due to excessive compression.
