People with back pain are advised to use Adjustable Beds. A flatbed may not provide the proper support for the spinal cord, resulting in excess back pain and restless sleep. Inclining the bed at 45 degrees provides relief for the lower back. Raising the foot of the bed means that your legs are raised and knees are slightly bent, relieving even more pressure on the spine.
Acid reflux and heartburn
Those suffering from acidity, benefit from having their upper body elevated 6 to 8 inches. This helps your stomach to retain its acids. On a flatbed, acid moves to the esophagus leading to episodes of acid reflux or heartburn.
Asthma and improving breathing for maximum lung expansion
A horizontal mattress restricts air tubes and increases the difficulty of moving air to vital major organs. Adjustable Beds elevate the upper body, which improves breathing and reduces stress on your heart to deliver oxygen and blood to vital organs. Those suffering from congestion also benefit because an elevated bed keeps your sinus and lungs clear, and keeps fluid and mucus at bay.
Commonly, adjusting the upper part of your bed to a higher position reduces or eliminates snoring. While snoring isn’t a serious health issue, snoring can prevent you from reaching a deep restful sleep, known as REM sleep. Snoring can also stop your partner from achieving a restful sleep.
Edema pain due to fluid retention
If you suffer from swollen feet and legs you can experience an enormous amount of pain and discomfort. Sleeping with your legs elevated helps to prevent fluid buildup and reduces pain. Those who have pulmonary edema should sleep with their head and chest elevated. This angle encourages the fluid to travel through the body without gathering in the legs, preventing weight gain and pain.
Sciatica and extreme pain sufferers
Many people prefer to sleep on their side or even their stomachs but the best position for sleep is on your back. Spinal alignment, breathing, pressure points and blood flow is difficult when you sleep on your side. Adjustable Beds are able to improve sciatica, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis and other spinal issues by providing a comfortable sleeping position that helps with breathing, pressure points and blood flow.
Those experiencing pain from arthritis in their upper body or lower body will benefit from the Adjustable Bed. Individuals with spinal osteoarthritis, or facet joint arthritis, often wake up quite stiff and sore in the morning. Sleeping on an Adjustable Bed may provide better support and therefore decrease the irritation by minimising joint compression.
Adjustable Beds offer many positions so it is easy to find a comfortable position to help you fall asleep faster. Improved blood flow circulation and improved oxygen levels also help you fall asleep and stay asleep.
