What is the best all around mattress that gives a good night of sleep and that does not cause back or joint pain?
A medium firm mattress is the best for you. It creates a balance between hard and soft mattresses that are known to cause back pains. A firm mattress that has a soft pillow top is also highly recommended. Make sure you replace the mattress after every three years.

Shop mattress store, the sales people are great. You don't have to buy the popular expensive beds, lots of others without the expense that might be right for you.
I have a sleep number bed, it's fantastic. The other one that you should check on is the memory bed.
