Are you wondering if an adjustable bed can make your life better? The value of sleep cannot be overstated. Good sleep every night could add years to your life. Poor sleep every night could be a ticking time bomb of health issues. An adjustable bed allows you to change the position in which you sleep. While you can lay flat if you like, you can also lift the legs and/or the head of the bed to provide different levels of support for your body.
An adjustable bed comes with many different benefits, including improvements to the quality of your sleep and your overall health.
Let’s take a look at five of the most beneficial aspects of getting an adjustable bed.
Back pain is a problem for millions of Americans. Sleep is a major factor in causing or alleviating it. More specifically, the quality of your mattress and the position in which you sleep both play a role. With an adjustable bed, you can adjust the back of the bed to better support the spine, which alleviates pressure on the sciatic nerve. Lifting the legs on the bed can also help take pressure off of the spine.
If you are having issues with sleeping because you’re not breathing well, your bed is likely the culprit. Sleeping on your back puts extra pressure on your throat and windpipe, causing the common problem known as snoring. When you adjust the back of the bed so you are sleeping at a 45 degree angle, you will virtually eliminate snoring. When it comes to sleep apnea, better repositioning of your throat and diaphragm will help you breathe better while sleeping.
If you spend all day on your feet, you may be familiar with the discomfort of swelling in your legs and ankles. One of the best ways to reduce swelling in your legs is to elevate your swollen feet above your heart. Even better, do this while you sleep. Using an adjustable bed is the easiest and most comfortable way to elevate your legs. In fact, if you suffer from swelling in your feet and legs, it is recommended that you elevate your feet above your heart several times a day. Having an adjustable bed gives you the easiest way to do just that.
While you sleep your body is processing and digesting food. Sleeping flat on your back has been known to slow digestion and even hamper it. Sleeping with your back elevated jut 6 inches improves digestion and helps you rest better. An adjustable bed can even help reducve acid reflux as well.
Like most people, you probably love hanging out in your bed on a lazy day or just to relax. We all love to sit in bed from time to time and watch TV, read, or play on our phones. An adjustable bed allows you to sit up without having to use pillows to support your back. It’s a much more comfortable option. Plus, you can lift your legs while you’re sitting on the bed to enhance the experience and improve your circulation while you take a break.
The benefits of an adjustable bed go far beyond just this list. In the end it’s about sleeping better and making your life more comfortable.
