Adjustable beds were primarily used only in hospitals before and in other similar healthcare facilities. Now you can enjoy all of the convenience they bring and the manifold health-promoting benefits they are known to deliver, right in the comfort of your own home.

Arthritis, diabetes, lower back pain, Restless Legs Syndrome, sleep apnea, arthritis, high blood pressure, and acid reflux are all medical conditions that adjustable or reclining beds can help with. 

Of course, the benefits one can enjoy from using an adjustable or reclining bed go beyond medical advantages. Even if a person is said to be in the pink of health, or is not afflicted by any of the above-mentioned conditions, they will still appreciate and enjoy the benefits of using this type of interesting furnishing because they make it possible for the user to personalize or customize their sleeping position.

Put an End to Snoring

Snoring is controversial, especially for couples. It is known for its notoriety for keeping a partner wide awake at night. Additionally, if your snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea, you can encounter daytime sleepiness as a direct result of insufficient sleep. 

If you snore a lot, you and your wife do not have to share a bed. By elevating your head, sleeping on an adjustable/reclining bed will help a lot in keeping you from snoring during sleep.

If your head is a little elevated, your sinuses will drain on their own also and thus clear your airways. Some of these bed systems come with an anti-snoring preset on their remote, so consider checking out this kind of usability feature before making a purchase. 

Alleviate Back Pain

Statistically speaking, 80% of us, as per the report of the American Chiropractic Association—will experience back pain at some stage in our lives. 

If your back pain is most severe when you stand straight, an adjustable bed can provide much-needed relief. Raising your head and feet will help ease lower back pain and does so by significantly relieving pressure on your spine.

If you find yourself waking up due to excruciating pain in your back, we suggest that you inspect your mattress more closely. An out-of-support mattress is a common cause of morning back pain.

Are you planning to buy a new mattress anytime soon to alleviate back pain? We recommend that you consider a medium-firm mattress. In light of research made in 2015, a relevant study about back pain showed that this is the best mattress to use because it offers the optimal firmness for spine alignment.

Soothes Symptoms of Arthritis

If you have osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, it is not unusual to wake up with sore and stiff joints. An adjustable or reclining bed can come to the rescue here and provide you with needed pressure relief. Aside from that, it can also soothe your inflamed joints.

You might also find it difficult to lift your body due to your arthritis. As a result, you may struggle to get out of bed in the morning. An adjustable or reclining bed will help you sit up first, making it easier to pivot yourself and thus get out of bed.

Conclusion

As indicated above, numerous health benefits can be obtained from using an adjustable bed. If you snore or suffer from some kind of chronic pain, an adjustable base for your bed will help you get the rest you need to have a productive day.

Of course, having the correct mattress is also critical to enjoying a good night’s sleep. Adjustable beds can not have any of their advantages if you sleep on an old, unsupportive mattress. Take into account not only the shape of your mattress but also its ability to adapt to the movements of an adjustable base.
