1. Reduce Back Pain

An adjustable bed base can help to reduce back pain by distributing your weight more evenly while you sleep – which in turn helps your spine! When you can elevate your head and your feet, your spine will be adequately supported and can take pressure off your nerves (alleviating your pressure points). PLUS - the different ways you elevate your body helps different parts of your spine, so the adjustable base is ideal no matter where your pain is located.

2. Relief from Arthritis Pain

The flexibility of an adjustable base allows you to position the mattress so that weight is taken off of your arthritic problem areas (shoulders, knees, neck, etc.). Additionally, the base can help to improve your circulation! Improved circulation can help reduce inflammation, relax tight muscles, and alleviate morning stiffness.

3. Reduce Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is a common problem that produces a burning pain in the lower chest and back. It can occur when your stomach acid flows back up into your esophagus. However, sleeping with your head and/or body partially elevated will allow gravity to do its job and assist you in keeping the contents of your stomach where they’re supposed to be!

4. Perfect Relaxing Positions

Do you enjoy watching a couple of TV episodes or reading a chapter or two before bed? An adjustable bed can help you find the perfect position to relax without straining your neck or shoulders! Rather than having to stack up pillows and rely on them to keep you up, you can rely on something a little sturdier.

5. Stop Snoring!

Snoring can happen when your tongue or the soft tissues around the back of your throat partially block your airways. Then when you take a breath, the result is a vibrating sound –the snore! With your head slightly elevated by an adjustable base bed, your airways can remain open, which means better breathing and less snoring. You’ll sleep better and your family members will too!
