Benefits of an Adjustable Base

Using an adjustable base not only creates the ideal sleeping position for some, but it can also deliver some relief from a variety of different health issues. Pairing an adjustable base with a mattress lifts the top and bottom of the mattress between 40 and 70 degrees, allowing for a more relaxed and comfortable position for you to watch TV, read or even sleep in. This elevation in areas of your mattress can provide many health benefits while sleeping, such as:

 

Ease Insomnia

Including an adjustable base in your mattress set can help to reduce insomnia. While it may result from numerous other problems, such as stress or anxiety, your sleeping position could also have an effect on your failure to sleep soundly through the night. With the use of an adjustable base, you can position yourself depending on your individual needs. Even the slightest adjustment could help to reduce or alleviate altogether insomnia.

 

Reduce Back Pain

If you are someone that suffers from chronic back pain, the use of an adjustable base can be a big help to reducing that pain when it is time to go to sleep. Sleeping on an incline allows for greater support beneath the knees, which in turn aids in reducing pressure on your spine. With a slight upper body incline, and the addition of elevated knees, the natural curve of your spine will receive more support while you are sleeping, compared to not using an adjustable base at all.

 

Improve Circulation

Sleeping with an adjustable base can also help to improve your circulation. Once you have established the best sleeping position with your adjustable base, you can reduce pressure allowing for blood to flow to the heart as well as throughout the entire body. By slightly raising your upper body, you will breath better, leading to a more efficient oxygen intake.

 

Alleviate Pain and Arthritis

The mattress set you are sleeping on can help to relieve some aches and pain throughout the body. If you are someone that experiences sore muscles, stiff and aching joints or even arthritis, sleeping with an adjustable base can help to lighten these pains. Being able to position your mattress with a slight elevation, rather than just simply laying flat, can have a large impact on alleviating any pain or arthritis you may be experiencing. While it may take some trial and error to figure out what position works best for you, the end result will be worth it.
