An adjustable bed can be the solution that you have been searching for if you suffer from back pain like many Americans. Back pain can be, well, a pain in the back. Chances are, you either have chronic back pain, occasional back pain, or you will sometime in your life. That’s because up to 8 out of 10 people will experience some form of back pain within their lifetime according to the American Chiropractic Association. Pain in the back area during the day often translates into sleep pain. Back pain can be caused by any number of things including injury. Some people experience back pain due to health issues such as arthritis or fractures, but others will be unable to pinpoint the reason they have it, though it is definitely there. No matter how yours came about, you may be able to use an adjustable bed for back pain.
If you are looking for a less invasive way to remedy the pain, focusing your efforts on sleep and sleep position, may be a good place to start. The Mayo Clinic indicates people with lower back pain may find relief by positioning their knees upward some, reducing the pressure on the lower spine and preserving the natural curvature of the back, rather than sleeping flat. WebMd also supports this stance citing that pillowscan be used under the knees to achieve this position which may help with painful symptoms. Supporting the neck may help as well. Utilizing an adjustable bed for back pain can simplify your life. Adjustable beds like the Glideaway Elevation Comfort Base offer adaptable positioning to raise and lower your head and/or feet. This can be a convenient way for you to reach the position that will take the pressure off your trouble spots and get you comfortable. This can be a great relief compared to regular flat mattress sleep. The adjustments of an adjustable bed can make it simple for you to repeatedly achieve that position from night to night with position presets. Basically, once you have found the perfect position, you set the preset. The next time you want to get into the same position, all you have to do is press a button and the bed automatically shifts into the preset position. This ensures that you are able to find that position easily, without taking time each night to find it again. When you are done sleeping, you can use a press and hold or one touch button to return the mattress into the flat position.
Now, we aren’t saying that work causes back pain, but it definitely affects working people. Interestingly enough, back pain has been associated with missing work and affects as many as half of working Americans each year. Getting sufficient sleep is more difficult if you are in pain, so an adjustable bed may help two fold. First, the adjustable positioning permits you to easily get into a position that reduces the pain, and second, you just might get into bed comfortably enough to sleep soundly. Attaining enough quality sleep can not only help reduce chronic pain, but it can also be essential for improved energy and focus, the same characteristics that you need at work. Coincidentally, getting sufficient sleep is also important for maintaining a healthy weight which will likely have an impact on the level of back pain one feels as well.
In addition to sleep improvements and strategically positioning for less back pain, massage can lessen the impact of lower back pain according to a study published in 2011. The results of this study leaned towards improvement in function and fewer symptoms. The massage function available on adjustable bed bases like the Leggett& Platt S-Cape 2.0 is one advantage that the adjustable bed offers over a traditional mattress. Now you can get a massage for comfort purposes at home, and it may even help your body recover from back pain symptoms. Many models offer multiple types of massage and varied intensity options. They each offer different additional features so they are available in a multitude of price points. If you want a basic adjustable bed base, you can find one that offers fewer features but still gives you the flexible positioning and massage functions to fit a smaller budget. If you don’t mind paying a little more, you can get an adjustable bed with features like Bluetooth capability, under the bed ambient lighting, USB charging ports, adjustable height, an increased number of massage options, and more. While you sleep adjustable positions can also turn off to a timer. Your current mattress might even work with your new adjustable bed, depending on which adjustable bed you choose and if you decide to stick with your current size mattress because the bed makes the mattresses adjustable.
