Having a good mattress and support where it matters is crucial. I speak from experience, as I live with scoliosis in the lower part of my back, and I know that temporary fixes like an extra pillow under my legs will only go so far. As you get older, your mattress needs may change as you do. You may go from wanting something super soft to requiring something more firm. Thankfully, there are many mattress options, price ranges, and sizes available, but that’s where things get tricky.
