Buying the right mattress, while it might seem like an enormous hassle, is actually one of the most important things you can do for your health. Think about it. You sleep on it everyday, for hours at a time.
"It's a delicate balance," says Charles Cefalu, MD, chief of geriatric medicine at Louisiana State University in New Orleans.
"You want a mattress that is firm enough to distribute your weight or you'll wake up sore due to your shoulders sagging or your hips sinking. On the other hand, you don't want to sleep on a board," he said.
