That being said, what are the best options to think about:
  • Scoliosis forums frequently recommend memory foam mattresses over other types of mattresses. This is because of how effectively the mattress cradles the body, relieving pressure on the spine. We’re not saying it’ll necessarily be the case for you, but it’s something to think about.
  • As with everyone, however, it’s important to get the right combination of comfort and support in a mattress. For scoliosis sufferers, it’s particularly important, because of common complaint that if the upper layers of the mattress are too soft, it’s difficult for scoliosis sufferers to move out of the “cradle” the body creates in the memory foam. This is particularly an issue for those who have mobility issues.
  • Skip the mattress topper. You’ll get better benefits from a new mattress, assuming your current mattress is several years old. Older mattresses give you (and anyone) aches and pains because their “support” layers have worn out — adding a mattress topper adds “comfort” but doesn’t address the fact the mattress is not adequately supporting your spine in a neutral position.
  • Like back pain, seems that medium-firm is a commonly recommending mattress for scoliosis. But, just as for back pain, this is a one-size fits all solution. You’ll probably find our mattress guide for back pain helpful, since it breaks down the logic behind this suggestion.
  • Body size: if you’re heavier, you’ll benefit from a firmer mattress; if you’re lighter, a softer mattress. Obviously, particularly for scoliosis sufferers, it’s like the three bears: not too soft and not too firm.
  • Body type: Typically, those with a greater disparity between their hips and their waist, or their hips and shoulders, benefit from softer upper layers of the mattress. The logic extends to scoliosis: if your spine is not straight, then your body will benefit from having it supported more in the upper comfort layers of the mattress. Beneath this comfort layer, the support layer should be on the firmer side.
  • It may be obvious, but don’t forget that using extra pillows to support your body may help you sleep easy.

Five Scoliosis Tips for Better Sleep:
1. Most physicians recommend NOT sleeping on your stomach. Sleeping on your stomach may increase back and neck pain, and push the natural curvature of the spine out of the alignment and into the abnormal scoliosis curve.
2. Find a comfortable and supportive mattress. Mattresses generally lose their upper layers of support with time. Make sure your mattress is adequately supporting your back’s neutral position.
3. Consider a mattress topper but be careful.  The topper should be made from either latex or a breathable cotton/wool blend to not trap heat and keep your body cool.  Most importantly for scoliosis treatment, the topper should be only 1-3 inches thick.  Excessive thickness may feel good at first but doesn’t give your neck and spine the support it needs.
4. Sleep on your side or back. Depending on your circumstances, your doctor may recommend sleeping on a particular side or on one’s back.  Propping a pillow under or between your legs may add extra comfort as well.
5. Properly support your head and neck. Finding the right pillow for scoliosis is key. Large pillows are NOT recommended. Large pillows will push your head forward and your spine out of alignment, compromising natural breathing while increasing neck pain. The PILLO1 cervical pillow may be a great pillow for scoliosis treatment, also for those who have had Harrington Rod Placement surgery (read testimonial below).

The Correct Sleeping Posture for Scoliosis

    While your spine naturally curves, it curves in places it shouldn't if you suffer from scoliosis. When the spine rotates, twists or curves due to scoliosis, you may experience outward symptoms like one hip or shoulder being higher than the other. Typically diagnosed during adolescence, scoliosis results from a congenital disorder, nerve condition or from an unknown cause. If you have been diagnosed with scoliosis, finding the right sleeping position can help to relieve pain.

Misconception
 
    Improper sleeping position or poor posture do not cause scoliosis, according to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. While scoliosis may make sleeping uncomfortable due to the abnormal curvature of the spine, the way you sleep will not worsen your condition. However, adopting a better sleeping position may help relieve some of the pain related to your scoliosis.


Thoracic Curve Position 
    A curve in the upper back or thoracic spine is one of the most common scoliosis types, according to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. This scoliosis type tends to curve to the right. To relieve pressure on this area, you may wish to sleep on your back with a towel or thin pillow tucked underneath your shoulder blades in addition to a standard pillow under your head to take pressure off your back. If you sleep on your side, use a body pillow tucked between your legs to open up the spinal canal. Take a rolled-up towel or small pillow under your upper ribcage to correct your abnormal spinal curvature. Avoid sleeping on your stomach, as this position can temporarily distort your back and neck, causing pain in the morning.

Lumbar Curve Position

    Another common area where scoliosis occurs is the lower spine, known as the lumbar region. For a scoliosis curve of this type, try different positions with a rolled-up towel directly underneath or just above your lower back. You may also wish to place a small pillow underneath your neck in addition to your usual pillow under your head. Try placing the pillows in different positions before leaving the pillows under your body overnight


Warning 
    Check with your physician before adding pillows or devices to manipulate your spine while sleeping. Because some scoliosis forms can impinge on the spinal cord nerves, ensure you will not decrease blood and spinal fluid flow through your sleeping position. If your back curve or related symptoms are severe, a physical therapist may be able to provide specific recommendations related to sleep position and your unique back curvature.
