Benefits of Adjustable Beds

Adjustable beds have come a long way in the past decade with the help of research and science.  Newer adjustable bed designs help sleepers find relief from a myriad of ailments, pains and problems associated with sleeping on an old mattress and frame.  More and more studies are showing the therapeutic effects adjustable beds can have on the body. Adjustable beds remove the one size fits all approach to sleeping and allows each individual to customize to their specifications.

Common sleeping problems are solved with adjustable beds.  For example, an adjustable bed can improve breathing for lung expansion, alleviate back pain, and even offer relief from acid reflex or heartburn.  The relief from these problems means a better night’s sleep and leaving you feeling more energetic throughout the day.  Below is a chart from orthopedist for a better look on why adjustable beds are beneficial.1

In addition to alleviating pain and discomfort, adjustable beds are great for improving your nightly activities like reading and watching TV.  You can lay with your back propped up and not have to worry about hurting your back.  Adjustable beds are quickly becoming preferred by a variety of consumers for their bedrooms.

Sleeping While Pregnant

Expectant parents know that it’ll be harder to get a good night’s sleep after their little one arrives, but who would have guessed that getting enough sleep during pregnancy would be difficult too?

When you’re pregnant, your body goes through a variety of changes and thee changes tend to disrupt your usual slumber. This can be due to the increased size of your abdomen, back pain, heartburn, shortness of breath or insomnia.

If you’ve always been a back or stomach sleeper, you might have trouble getting used to sleeping on your side, which is the most recommended sleeping position for pregnant women. It’s even better to sleep on your left side because it will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby.

If you are having problems with back pain, use the “SOS” (sleep on side) position and try placing a pillow under your abdomen as well.

If you are experiencing heartburn during the night, you may want to try propping your upper body up with pillows.

In late pregnancy you may start to experience shortness of breath. Lying on your side or propping yourself up with pillows can help alleviate this issue.

It is important to avoid sleeping on your back during pregnancy because this can cause problems with backaches, breathing, your digestive system, hemorrhoids, low blood pressure and decrease circulation to your heart and your baby. These are all a result of your abdomen resting on your intestines and major blood vessels.

It’s also important to avoid getting used to sleeping on your stomach. When you are farther along in your pregnancy, your abdomen undergoes physical changes that will make it very difficult to lie no your stomach.

Early in your pregnancy, try getting into the habit of sleeping on your side to avoid major discomfort during the later stages of pregnancy. Shifting positions is a natural part of sleeping that you can’t control so don’t drive yourself crazy worrying that you might roll over onto your back during the night. If you do shift onto your back, the discomfort will most likely wake you up.
