What health problems can an adjustable bed help with?

Adjustable beds are beneficial for a multitude of reasons, each of which can dramatically improve the quality of your life. Typical, traditional mattresses are not the only option for you nowadays, meaning you always have room to improve the quality of your sleep.
One of the primary benefits is that adjustable beds can allow for ergonomic positioning, improving the curvature of the spine during sleep. This helps improve posture, acid reflux, arthritis, circulation and much more alone.

When lying flat on traditional, normal mattresses you will find that your body cannot maintain a proper posture. This is because tension on the muscles and joints is increased, which in turn reduces the rest and recuperation that your muscles experience during a full night’s sleep.
An adjustable bed can allow you to provide the proper support to different areas of the body, including your neck, head, lower back, legs, knees, feet and ankles. Even if you are able to maintain a proper posture, it can be improved by the addition of memory phone pillow or cervical pillow.

Adjustable beds have an advantage over traditional, flat mattresses as they provide healthy posture, pressure relief, proper circulation and customized support. Aside from this, adjustable beds have additional advantages such as electric adjustments of bed angles and even height with Hi-Low systems. This proves beneficial to caregivers as well because it allows for easier transfers and total access for patient lifts.
Some of the health problems that many people use adjustable beds and the way in which they relieve the problem are:

· Lower back pain relieved by a healthier posture
· Neck/ shoulder tension relieved by customized bed support
· Aches and pains relieved by proper circulation
· Arthritis pains relieved by customized support
· Asthma and breathing problems relieved by better support and posture
· Acid Reflux relieved by better posture (Semi upright)
· Swollen legs or feet relieved by better posture and circulation
· Heart problems relieved by proper circulation
