Why Choose an Adjustable Bed?


Despite there being many adjustable beds on the market, most people remain unaware of the many benefits this unique type of bed has to offer. Many people view adjustable beds as something primarily used in hospitals or for people with limited mobility; however, they can be quite beneficial for anyone who is looking to enhance their quality of sleep. Learn more about how an adjustable bed can improve your sleep, your health, and your overall quality of life.

Reduces Back Pain

If your flat mattress fails to provide sufficient back support, pairing it with an adjustable bed can be a game-changer. An adjustable bed will improve your mattress’ body-contouring capabilities, which will promote proper spinal alignment and help to relieve pressure throughout. Inclining the head of the bed by 45 degrees is particularly useful for relieving pressure on your lower back.

Relieves Digestive Issues

Lying in a horizontal position makes it harder for your body to digest food, which is tied to weight gain and stomach discomfort. If you tend to have your dinner right before bed or often indulge in a midnight snack, then an adjustable bed can come in handy. Keeping your upper body in an elevated position will encourage proper digestion. Having a bed that allows you to sleep elevated will also prevent stomach acid from moving to your esophagus, which will decrease symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux.

Promotes Good Circulation

If you suffer from fluid retention, an adjustable bed can provide you with a great deal of relief. With the ability to raise either the head or foot of your bed, an adjustable bed can reduce fluid buildup and pain for people who suffer from either leg edema or pulmonary edema. Adjusting your bed to elevate your legs can also relieve the pain associated with sprained or broken limbs, and it can even combat varicose veins.
