Benefits of an Adjustable Bed

Adjustable beds are now readily available to buy online for everyone. Electric beds are becoming more popular, so the usage now goes beyond those with injuries or medical requirements. The question is what benefits will an adjustable bed bring for you. Adjustable beds are found to be very beneficial for your sleep and also have many advantages in improving overall health. So, whether you are looking to buy an adjustable bed to aid an injury or improve your sleep quality, let’s look at some of the benefits you may witness. Here are some of the main health benefits that an adjustable bed will bring to you.

Alleviates back pain

In regular beds, your back doesn’t get all of the support it needs. So, for those suffering with back pain, it can cause problems with sleeping and resting. An adjustable bed eliminates this problem by adjusting to match the curve of your body. This provides your back with greater support, easing the pain and reducing severity. Adjustable bed mattresses can be adjusted at both the head and foot end of the bed. So, this allows the spine to be supported and lightens the pressure on the sciatic nerve. Those suffering from conditions like sciatica will see improvements in their health, leading to a better and more comfortable sleep.

Reduces pain in joints and ligaments

In the UK over 10 million people suffer with arthritis or other joint and ligament problems. Those that suffer with arthritis will feel reduced pain in their joints and ligaments with an adjustable bed.  An adjustable bed will allow people living with arthritis to alleviate the pressure on joints and ligaments by adjusting their bed, to take the weight off struggling areas. This also aids morning stiffness as pain is decreased overnight, aiding you to rise from your bed more easily.

Improves circulation

To ensure optimal quality of sleep, your body’s circulation needs to be at the prime level. An adjustable bed solves this problem by allowing users to customise their sleeping position. This enables reduced pressure for the blood to flow to the heart and throughout the body. Your blood pressure will naturally drop when you are asleep. You can further aid the process by adjusting your bed to further lighten the pressure. The adjustable bed enhances circulation through this and allows you to have a better night’s sleep.

Reduces swelling of the legs

Many people suffer and feel distressed from swelling of the legs, from pregnant women to those who have endured a leg injury. Lying on a regular bed will allow inflammation and swelling due to fluids pooling, leading to increased pain and a night of poor sleep. An adjustable bed allows your legs to be elevated by adjusting the bottom half of your bed. This ensures that your legs are in a comfortable position, resulting in reduced swelling and pain.

Improves breathing throughout sleep

Adjustable beds are also great at improving breathing, so those with asthma will benefit from elevating their upper body. By raising the head with the use of an electric bed, breathing problems such as snoring and sleep apnea can also be decreased. By sleeping in a more angled position, your airflow improves, clearing the nasal passage to improve your breathing. Sleeping in a more elevated position will also relieve sinus pressure and will allow oxygen to flow more freely. So you can focus less on your breathing and more on sleeping.
