Many patients have successfully taken my Doctor’s Choice recommendation. Denver Mattress usually gets a bad rap around here. I’m not sure why. My mattress has held up well, but I couldn’t guarantee every unit they sell will. For the price, it’s worth the gamble compared to the traditional brands.
My queen mattress was $400 in 2002. Many brands are well over $1000 and upwards of $2000 or more. And many patients have complained about needing to replace their “expensive” mattress as soon as you would expect with a “cheap” mattress, like less than 5 years. So as far as I can see in 10 years of helping patients with their sleep and choosing mattresses, the price doesn’t guarantee anything.
MATTRESSES: King Koil
I will mention a brand that is endorsed by the International Chiropractic Association and was used throughout the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas at one time. (I’ve heard MGM has more rooms than any other hotel in the world, so that’s a LOT of mattresses!) It is called King Koil. It’s not universally available. But if you can find that, I believe it would be worth investigating.
It is interesting to note that over 10 years of trouble-shooting people’s pain while sleeping or when they wake up in the morning, that no “cream of the crop” mattress has risen to the top. Many patients have reported good results with Doctor’s Choice by Denver Mattress, though.
