Benefits of an Adjustable Bed
There’s a Simple Way to Sleep Better
All you have to do is slightly elevate your head and legs. The effect is dramatic – a much deeper, sounder sleep. This position also reduces stiffness and pain in the lower back and neck. Why does elevating your head and legs improve your sleep? Well, it takes a little explaining…
You Move 30-60 Times a Night
Sleep studies have shown that the average person moves from 30 to 60 times a night, including about a half dozen full-body turns. You move because your body is uncomfortable. Aching muscles, numbness caused by restricted circulation, and compression of the internal organs causes movement. With every toss and turn, you wake slightly, reducing your quality of sleep.
Your Body Wakes Your Brain
Your body’s aches and pains rouse your brain with a plea to change body positions. Your brain never gets a chance to fall into a refreshing deep sleep, leaving you with that exhausted feeling when you wake.
Less Movement : Better Sleep
If you could reduce the number of times you toss and turn at night, you could achieve a deeper state of sleep. Remember, though, you toss and turn because your body is uncomfortable. The key to a better night’s sleep is finding a comfortable sleeping position. It’s much harder than it sounds…
Your Spine Can Be Very Hard to Please
Most people start the night on their back, but quickly end up turning. The lumbar curvature of the spone is the root of the problem. Lying flat on your back puts a constant strain on your spine and the muscles attached to it. Why? Because your lumbar curve is forced into an unnatural position by the position and weight of your legs and upper torso.
A Quick Test
Sleeping on your back unnatural? For proof, bend your legs at your knees next time you lie flat on your back. If feels a lot better, doesn’t it?
Sleeping On Your Side
Your body instinctively knows how to correct the discomfort of sleeping on your back, it rolls you into a fetal position. This reduces the strain on your back muscles, but creates other problems. Your body weight is now concentrated on your arm, hip and leg, restricting blood circulation at these points. Restrict blood flow for too long, and your body parts go to sleep.
Internal Organ Compression
When you sleep on your side, your heart is compressed between your lungs. Your heart has to pump harder to overcome the pressure from your lungs.
Sleeping On Your Stomach
The other option for body positioning is lying on your stomach. However, this position hyper-extends the lumbar curve to an even greater extent than lying on your back. Additionally, proper support of your neck is virtually impossible.
Continual Tossing and Turning
Sleeping on your back, sude and stomach all cause discomfort. So you spend the night alternating positions. First, on your back, then on your side, and finally on your stomach. Then you repeat the cycle! Your body never finds a comfortable position, and you don’t get a good night’s sleep.

If you are like most people, you find it difficult to believe that you’ve spent your life sleeping improperly.
