Most Americans suffer from a form of lower or upper back pain. While many of these problems can be caused by work or physical illness, it’s been found that a poorly made bed can exacerbate back problems and make them worse in the long run. If you’re tossing and turning instead of sleeping or wake up with headaches, it’s time for you to replace your mattress and find one that suits your unique needs. Below I’ll list the top facts about sleeping habits, adjustable bed mattresses and how you can get a good night’s sleep and wake up without pain.
Poor Sleeping Habits
The National Sleep Foundation has found that a bed adjustable can take pressure off of key areas on the body that cause discomfort and headaches, such as your shoulders, lower back and sides. Tossing and turning at night is the body’s natural attempt to reduce pressure that causes sore muscles and stiffness in the morning. When you lie in bed for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time without sleeping, reaching your essential REM cycle can actually become more difficult.
Adjustable Bed Options
There are multiple options available for people who need to reduce back pain, such as an adjustable electric bed or quality foam mattress. Electric beds can provide heating that soothes sore muscles and an adjustable memory foam bed curves to your body’s shape to provide optimal comfort. A slight incline at either the head or foot of your adjustable bed can also reduce your body’s natural tendency to curl or bend, which is another factor in unwanted lower back pain. Whether you’re trying to eliminate morning stiffness or are supplementing physical therapy, a bed adjustable is key to getting the sleep you deserve.
