Without proper sleep, could you really get through your day? For millions of Americans who suffer from sleeplessness, the answer is “no,” even if they have long dealt with insomnia, chronic pain, or other conditions that keep them up at night. If you’re one of those who can’t get a good night’s rest, then it may be time to consider some alternatives to being kept up at night.
One solution, as recommended by the National Sleep Foundation, is to use an adjustable bed. These electric beds come with controls that can allow a person to sleep in an upright position and/or with feet and legs raised. Adjustable electric beds also come in a number of sizes, from twin adjustable beds to king size adjustable beds.
Why might you benefit from one of these beds? You may want to consider buying one if you suffer from one of these three issues:
- Sleeplessness: Did you know that lying awake in bed for more than 15 to 20 minutes can actually prevent you from falling asleep? If you find that you’re tossing and turning at night or that stress keeps you awake, it could have to do with your bed. An adjustable bed will allow you to sleep at an incline, and this may be just what you need to reduce your stress and get some shut-eye.
- Chronic pain: Do you have For instance, if you choose one of the Craftmatic® brand adjustable beds, you can receive a bed that comes equipped with optional heat and massage functions. These features may 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. Sleeping in an upright position, which adjustable beds allow for, may even reduce or ease light and occasional snoring.
- Discomfort: For some people, getting to sleep isn’t a matter of stress or pain keeping them up at night. They’re simply too uncomfortable in their beds. However, electric beds can adjust to prevent you from curling up, which is one of the issues that can contribute to chronic pain. Instead of tossing and turning, raising your torso and/or legs can actually help you find a comfortable position, so you can get a full night’s sleep.
