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.

The health benefits of adjustable mattresses are evident and directly connected to how comfortable and supportive they are for your body.  Sleeping on your back at an incline allows your body to maintain proper circulation and posture while sleeping.

How to Prevent Snoring

Chronic snoring affects up to 45% of the adult population. Habitual snorers can be at risk for serious health problems, including obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea creates several problems, including:

– Long interruptions of breathing caused by partial or total obstruction or blockage of the airway
– Frequent waking sleep
– Light sleeping
– Strain of the heart
– Poor night’s sleep

Learning to distinguish between kinds of snoring will help you address the particular causes of that kind of snoring. Closed-mouth snoring indicates that your tongue is the cause of your snoring and that some exercises and lifestyle changes should help eliminate the snoring. Open-mouthed snoring can be caused by sinus trouble or by posture in bed. Snoring from any other position might indicate apnea or other significant issues that will require more substantial medical treatment to address.

It’s important to avoid things that can make snoring worse. Alcohol, sleeping pills, coffee and fatty foods before bedtime can all increase snowing by making your throat muscles relax and narrowing your airway.

Dryness can also cause snoring, so using a humidifier or taking a hot bath or shower before bed can help alleviate snoring as well.

If you sleep on your back, buy yourself a few extra pillows and prop yourself up in bed, rather than lying flat on your back. It is not recommended to sleep on your back because in that position, your tongue and soft palate rest against the back of your throat, blocking the airway.

Remember, snoring is a physical problem. Whether you’re a snorer or live with one, there’s nothing to be embarrassed or angry about. It’s not a conscious choice the snorer is making, but a physical concern that can be remedied with a little planning.
