A good night’s sleep is so important to both our physical and mental well-being. However, some people just can’t seem to get a good night’s rest no matter how hard they try. If you spend all night tossing and turning or have back or neck problems which only seem to be aggravated by going to bed, not improved, then you might want to consider getting an adjustable bed.
The amount of you sleep you get at night is largely related to the comfort you are in. Adjustable beds are particularly popular with people who suffer from back pain or insomnia, as well as with the elderly. When you sleep on a flat mattress, only certain parts of the body are supported, while others aren’t. This leads to extra stress being placed on the muscles, especially along the back and neck. This makes it even more difficult for people who already suffer from back or neck pain to get to sleep.
Adjustable beds such as the Adjustmatic bed, however, isn’t flat but can instead be put into different angles to give extra support for the whole body. You can provide extra support for your neck to relieve pain and relieve the pressure on back muscles. Elevating your head by raising the top section of the bed can also help your circulation, as it allows the heart to pump the blood to the legs more easily. Being able to raise the head and/or legs can also help those with respiratory conditions, as you will have access to better oxygen.
Getting a good night’s sleep can help to reduce the stress and anxiety you may find yourself suffering from through the day. Spending the night tossing and turning leaves your body unable to function as well, which in turn can cause stress. Choosing a bed which has a built in massaging feature can also help to relieve stress, as well as the painful symptoms of other conditions such as arthritis or sciatica.
Adjustable beds are stronger and sturdier than traditional beds because the bed frame has to support the movement of going up and down, as well as holding both a mattress and a motor. As the frame can therefore hold heavier load weights, the bed can usually support a more superior mattress and support it correctly.
When shopping for an adjustable bed, choose your mattress first. As with traditional beds, there are different types of mattress available, including memory foam and orthopaedic, so decide which type you prefer and then look for a model which has that kind of mattress. Many people tend to think that adjustable beds are going to look like a hospital bed has been placed in their bedroom, but the reality is that adjustable beds are just a superior form of a typical domestic bed. They are available in patterns and styles which match home décor and come in different sizes, just like traditional beds.
Buying a new bed can be a big decision, so spend some time choosing the right one for you and discussing which options are going to help you get the best sleep.
