Corrective Chiropractic’s Take on Mattresses
Be mindful that most mattresses have chemical flame-retardants in them. We have found a few options to avoid these types of dangerous chemicals. 100% Natural Latex mattresses made from the sap of rubber trees are some of the best natural options; however, the technology for making these mattresses requires a higher price. ChiroSlumber makes a latex mattress but for those who prefer the memory foam style mattress or who have latex allergies we recommend one of their three memory foam options. ChiroSlumber is the only company we have seen that makes a mattress similar to the most well known Temperpedic Memory Foam™ but uses a fire retardant cover instead of the highly toxic chemicals.
Remember the ONLY way to determine if a mattress is right for you is by SLEEPING on it, not laying down on it for a few minutes but actually sleeping on it for a several days or weeks. This is why a well-supported return policy is more essential than being able to actually touch or “try” the bed for a few minutes. Again this is why we recommend ChiroSlumber because they have a 120-day return policy and will even pay for return shipping.
I understand that this is a lot of information about a bed but you’re going to spend a LOT more time on your mattress that you will in our office so it is important that it properly support your spine. ChiroSlumber is the only mattress design by a chiropractor and although it is NOT the only recommend mattresses for good spine health it is the best we have found.
