Sometimes the aches and pains you encounter during the day aren’t the result of any strenuous physical activity. In fact, they can actually arise from how you’re sleeping. Not only is the amount of sleep you get important, but so is the quality of your sleep as determined by your comfort. Using an adjustable bed mattress may help you sleep better and reduce pain.
How can you find the right adjustable bed for your needs? Make sure you keep these three features in mind:
- Determine how you can change how you sleep. Most people tend to lay on their sides, curl up, or otherwise twist themselves into uncomfortable positions sometime during the evening. As a result, this can lead to back aches, leg cramps, and other problems. However, by using an adjustable mattress, which can help support your torso and/or your legs and feet, you can find a comfortable position and take pressure off of your spine.
- Consider the size of the bed you need. The first question to ask yourself is who will be sleeping in this bed? If it’s only one person, then you’ll likely just need a twin adjustable bed. However, you can also find full and queen beds and even king size adjustable beds that can provide comfort for two. Generally, king size beds are required to place each sleeper at a different angle, but it’s possible to find comfort for two when you adjust the settings and firmness of the bed.
- Think about adding optional features. When it comes to adjustable beds, there are a number of extra features that you can add on to your bed for optimal comfort. Examples of this include heat and massage functions, which will help warm the bed and soothe aches and pains.
Craftmatic® Adjustable Beds, for instance, can be equipped with optional heat & massage. These features also may provide temporary relief from conditions such as low back pain, minor aches and pains due to muscular fatigue or overexertion, edema or swelling of the legs, poor local blood circulation of the legs, symptoms of hiatus hernia, nighttime heartburn, and symptoms of gastric reflux. The optional heating accessory may provide temporary relief from mild arthritis and joint pain, as well as muscle pain associated with stress and tension. Sleeping in an upright position, as an adjustable bed mattress will allow you to do, may also ease or reduce light and occasional snoring.
