There is an old misconception that hovers around the use of waterbeds that are surrounded around the myth that waterbeds fail to provide adequate back support. While the source of the information is fleeting, many believe that that is rooted from the pioneer days of the industry. In truth, most modern waterbeds provide as much—if not more—support than traditional bedding choices.
When looked upon and compared to traditional mattresses with coil springs, it’s easy to see how one could accept such myths. The free-flow version of waterbeds that were popular in the days of yore do allow the lower back to sink to levels beyond those recommended by some medical professionals. However, today’s most popular models provide varying degrees of support that can be honed to the individual’s own comfort and support needs. This is done by layering in material that cuts down on the wave action.
