Do you have
back pain?

NO
Lucky you! Just keep in mind that an old or overly soft mattress can eventually lead to back and/or neck pain.
YES
If you have upper or lower back pain, sleeping on a soft mattress can exacerbate the problem by allowing your body to sink, causing too much pressure on your joints. A firm mattress will offer proper support for your spine, while relieving pressure points on your shoulders, neck, and hips.
