We want to make sure you have everything you need to get the restorative sleep your body requires, including a solid, adjustable foundation. Discover the top 10 adjustable bed perks!
Do health issues need adjustable beds? Absolutely! Elevating your head and/or legs using an adjustable bed foundation can improve your health. Benefits:
- Lowering Back Pain
- Lessening Acid Reflux and Heartburn
- Reducing Insomnia
- Arthritis Relief
- Lowers Back Pain
If you are one of the 39 percent of Americans who suffer from the disruptive symptoms of back pain, you know how tough it can be to get into a comfortable posture to sleep. Adjustable bases can modify that! Raising the head and foot of your bed supports your spine, relieving nerve strain. This will relieve pressure spots and support your spine while you sleep.
- Alleviates Snoring
If you’ve ever woken up to your snoring, chances are your spouse is too. Sleep apnea, asthma, or other causes of snoring are easily treated.
- Reduces Acid Reflux/Heartburn
Heartburn is a frequent symptom of acid reflux. It occurs when your stomach acid runs back up into your esophagus, and it may be exceedingly painful.
- Reduces Insomnia
Many of us are stressed these days. The CDC reports that 35% of Americans sleep fewer than 7 hours a night, indicating an increase in insomnia. In 2020, melatonin supplement sales soared by 42.6 percent.
If you’ve tried everything to rest, why not try an adjustable bed base? An adjustable bed foundation can improve sleep for people with insomnia due to chronic pain, occupational stress, drugs, or anxiety. You may discover a new position that knocks you out fast!
- Boosts Digestion
Flat sleeping impairs digestion. An adjustable bed foundation lets you sleep on your left side, the best digestion posture, with your head slightly raised.
Better sleep even aids weight management. Late dinners and midnight snacks might influence your sleep. Elevating your head will reduce heartburn from late-night eating, improving sleep and waistline.
- Promotes Independence
Health issues—due to age, disability, disease, or accident—can impair movement and freedom. Independent individuals who struggle to get out of bed face this issue. For mobility-impaired people, an adjustable bed foundation is ideal.
Raise the head of your adjustable bed base if the limited movement has impaired your freedom. Because you can lean on it, this will help you get off the bed faster.
- Alleviates Arthritis
Adjustable bed frames treat chronic arthritis and other symptoms. The queen mattresses may be positioned to relieve stiff and painful joints. Pain-related morning stiffness can be alleviated by the adjustable bed. Raising the head and lowering the foot help the sleeper get up.
Your pain points determine your position. Our clients like the zero-G posture for arthritic pain relief since it relieves body pressure. An adjustable bed foundation can also reduce morning stiffness from chronic pain illnesses including arthritis, CRPS, fibromyalgia, and more.
- Reduces Leg Swelling
Injuries, pregnancy, and sickness can produce swollen legs, which worsen when you lie down. For edema, irritation, and varicose veins, experts recommend sleeping with your legs up. For maximum results, lie flat and tilt your thighs a little less than 45 degrees. To reduce tendon pressure, bend your knees 20–30 degrees. Finally, tilt calves 15–20 degrees. A button-operated adjustable bed foundation makes this position effortless.
- Relieves RLS
RLS is a neurological sleep condition that causes restless legs and poor sleep. RLS worsens with time, making quality sleep impossible. Circulation-boosting adjustable bed bases might help you manage RLS symptoms.
Adjustable bed bases for RLS:
- Lift your legs 3-6 inches at bedtime to reduce overnight shifting, twitching, and movement.
- Hint: Add a weighted blanket to your adjustable bed foundation to combat RLS. Deep touch pressure treatment with weighted blankets stimulates pressure sites that release serotonin and melatonin (the sleep hormone).
