Human beings like to think of our species as the pinnacle of evolution, the dominant species on the planet, and the king of the food chain. In reality, homo sapiens are still a work in progress, and we’ve got the anatomy to prove it. It is partly because of our evolutionary imperfections, such as our wisdom teeth and our appendixes that there are so many people who have trouble sleeping at night.
Because the human spine is “S” shaped and our legs curved, a flat sleeping surface doesn’t provide the ideal support system for resting. It’s the same reason we use pillows; without it, our neck wouldn’t be supported and could start hurting. So when you try and fall asleep on an ordinary flat mattress instead of an adjustable bed mattress, there are gaps where your legs and spine aren’t properly supported. This can put stress and tension on your muscles and bones.
When you try and fall asleep, you may unconsciously change positions to avoid that pain and tension, which is a fancy way of saying that you’re suffering from tossing and turning syndrome. As if this was not bad enough, but many people also stay awake each night thinking about their day or what needs to be accomplish the following day. Thinking about what they did that day, what they didn’t do that day, what they have to do tomorrow, their bills, and so on can bring on sleepless nights. Combined this with a lack of support for your legs and spine, and it’s a perfect recipe for a hard night of no sleep.
So what can you do about it? You can try arranging pillows to provide support, but that’s a temporary fix at best. However, just a slight incline at the head or foot of a mattress can help provide better support, keeping you from bending your legs, turning to your side, and changing positions all night long. That’s why so many people are investing in all types of adjustable beds.
