An adjustable bed may help you sleep better if you experience sleeplessness, especially if it’s caused by discomfort. One of the conditions that can keep you up is low back pain. Therefore, if you have this issue, it may be time to consider an adjustable bed.
Please remember though not all adjustable beds are the same. Plus todays adjustable beds made for your home don’t resemble hospital beds like many people think they do. Which adjustable bed systems may be right for you? Take a look at some of these popular options and think about what would help you sleep best at night.
Adjustable Memory Foam Beds
Memory foam became something of a trend for mattresses a few years ago because these mattresses are supposed to contour to the sleeper’s body. They also don’t have springs like regular mattresses do, so they allow for easier shifting at night without waking a partner. There are now also adjustable mattresses made with memory foam, so that same comfort is available with the ability to incline the legs and feet or raise the upper body. This may be ideal for people who can’t get comfortable at night, as tossing and turning in bed may contribute to discomfort. The comfort from these mattresses could also facilitate faster sleep, as staying awake in bed for more than 15 or 20 minutes can cause sleeplessness. Consider this option if you have trouble getting comfortable and getting to sleep at night.
Dual Control Adjustable Beds
Some adjustable bed systems are designed to raise and lower with just one setting. This means that if two people are sleeping in the same bed, they’d better both be comfortable with the same settings. However, there are other models of adjustable beds that allow for dual controls. These adjustable bed systems are made so that each partner can choose settings for individualized comfort. If you and your partner have radically different needs in terms of comfort, then this may be an ideal setup for both of you.
Heat and Massage Settings
It’s not only about the controls and the mattress materials. Adjustable beds also offer other luxury settings for the ultimate in comfort. Craftmatic® brand adjustable beds come with optional heating and massage functions. These features can 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. Additionally, the heating accessory itself may provide temporary relief from mild arthritis and joint pain, as well as muscle pain associated with stress and tension. These settings are in addition to the fact you can sleep in an upright position with an adjustable bed, which may reduce or ease light and occasional snoring.
Which of these optional settings would suit you best? Think about these features and remember them when it comes time to select your ideal adjustable bed.
