Why You Might Want to Consider an Adjustable Bed

If you're one of those people who think that adjustable beds are only for those that are old or unhealthy, it's time to adjust your thinking.

Adjustable beds or bases are growing in popularity among all segments of the population. According to just about everybody, people enjoy a good night's sleep. Yes, we're being sarcastic. But the fact is, if your bed doesn't offer you the health benefits of a good night's sleep by lacking in support, then an adjustable base bed may be your next best option. Adjustable beds have been shown to offer a variety of health benefits for any sleeper. These benefits include:

  • Reduction in back and joint pain - By supporting your neck and spine in correct positions, an adjustable bed relieves the pressure that many experience from flat beds. Find your best position by either raising the neck and head, or the feet, or a combination of both.
  • Relief from heartburn or indigestion - Those suffering from acid reflux can reduce the amount of rising acids by elevating the upper body by about 6 or 8 inches. When acid is kept from traveling up the esophagus, a less-disrupted sleep is possible.
  • Improved respiratory function - By alleviating pressure on the lungs, those who suffer from ailments such as asthma, bronchitis or COPD are able to enjoy more uninterrupted periods of deep sleep. Adjustable bases also help with cold and flu sufferers.
  • Reduction in arthritis symptoms - For those whom arthritis in the neck or spine is an issue, adjustable beds relieve the joint compression that contributes to recurring pain. Sleeping at an angle that alleviates that pressure helps lessen pain throughout the day.
