Best Mattress for Side Sleepers with Shoulder Pain
Most mattresses on our list utilize tried-and-true memory foam; however, our favorite mattress for shoulder pain breaks the mold and uses cutting edge hyper-elastic polymers which evenly distributes pressure, making them perfectly suited for side sleepers. The composition of the mattress supports your back like a firm mattress while cradling your hips and shoulders like a soft mattress, and the free flow air channels won’t trap heat like memory foam or latex.
