6 Ways Adjustable Bases Can Improve Your Health And Lifestyle

6 Ways Adjustable Bases Can Improve Your Health And Lifestyle

Adjustable bases have been around for some time, but most people still don't know the benefits of having one in your home. An adjustable base is one that can both raise and lower your mattresses' orientation to different angles to meet your different sleeping needs. It really is a shame that some people believe adjustable base beds are only for the old, or for the injured, as they offer many health benefits and everyday applications to improve the quality of life for any disgruntled sleeper.


6 Problems That Can Be Solved By Using An Adjustable Base Mattress


If your bedroom walls are prone to shake at night, if you can be heard three bedrooms over, just know that you're not alone. Over 90 Million Americans snore while they sleep. The main cause of snoring is the blockage of the windpipe while sleeping, which can be caused by several factors, but most commonly by the weight of your own neck onto your windpipe, preventing you from taking adequate breaths. An adjustable base allows for a more inclined sleeping position, decreasing the pressure onto your windpipe and reducing the sound of your snoring, as well as allowing you to get a more relaxing sleep. Your sleeping partner will thank you later.

Back Pain

Adjustable bases provide support and alignment to your spine by allowing your mattress to conform to the contours of your body. This can help prevent Sciatica, a condition where nerves are trapped in the base of the spine, pinching together and causing immense pain from the lower back all the way down through the legs. For those already suffering from Sciatica, adjustable bases alleviate the pain by matching the contours of your body and allowing a raised position for your legs. In fact, just lowering the bed up and down can help stretch your back.


It may seem odd to think that a bed base can affect how you digest, but you may be surprised to know that by slightly raising your head level, you can avoid experiencing acid reflux, and help your body process food more efficiently. A six-inch raise is generally recommended to boost digestion, but late night snackers might want to raise it higher, as going to bed on a full stomach means more digestive activity through the night.

Swelling And Injuries

When dealing with a broken, sprained, or pulled limb, you'll often hear the best way to speed up recovery is to elevate that part of the body. An adjustable base allows you to lift or raise up your mattress and elevate limbs while keeping you in a natural sleeping position and eliminating the need to prop it up using a pillow. In less serious situations, elevating your feet after a long day of work will help blood flow and help you recharge for the next day.


Your posture has a very heavy impact on your day to day life; having good posture can make you more confident, more attractive, and healthier, while having poor posture is associated with lower self-esteem and health problems like lower back pain, and signals to others you have poor health overall. Adjustable bases provide additional support to your spine, and just like how sleeping on an inferior mattress can worsen your posture, adjustable bases can improve your posture over time.  


It's not always easy to find something everyone can agree on. He wants to stay up and watch a movie, she has an early meeting tomorrow morning. She needs her legs slightly raised, he likes to lay out completely flat. Split level adjustable bases are the best solution out there for accommodating two people's needs at the same time. So, no matter how much your husband loves Mrs. Doubtfire, when it comes onto TV it doesn't have to mean another late night for you. It's also infinitely easier to sit up and finish that mystery novel when your mattress raises up behind you. Most models also offer features like a Zero-G setting, which makes it feel like you're floating on a cloud.
