Sleep problems plague millions of Americans and this can have multiple negative impacts on our bodies. It leads to a number of ailments that are both long and short-term.

What are the benefits of adjustible beds?
Adjustible beds relieve pain.
The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) has said the most common causes of insomnia are back and neck pain, TMJ and headaches. Using an adjustable mattress prevents people from moving into positions such as curling up or bending their knees, which cause pain. They also reduce pressure on parts of the body that might have issues such as injuries or be affected by arthritis and prevent people to move into positions that cause pain to avoid it.
Using an adjustable bed improves digestion.
Raising the head of a bed by six to eight inches a person reduces acid reflux. It also stops people from sleeping on their side, which hinders digestion. Many gastroenterologists recommend their patients with ulcers or acid reflux do this.Improved digestion also result in weight loss.
Adjustable bed systems improve breathing.
By raising the head, the lungs are expanded and breathing is improved. This can help with asthma and sleep apnea. This also cuts down on snoring. This is another way the beds alleviate pain. By getting more oxygen to the brain. By contrast, lying on one’s side hinders breathing and reduces the amount of oxygen the brain gets.
An adjustable bed helps people with Restless Leg Syndrome.
People who suffer from this benefit from raising their legs when they sleep, they can do this with an adjustable bed.
