4 Ways An Adjustable Bed Can Help Prevent Snoring

Jul 5, 2019 | Advice

An Adjustable Bed Can End Sleepless Nights For You And Your Partner

Research undertaken by the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association found that 41.5% of the UK adult population snore. While most people feel that retreating to the sofa is the only way to prevent sleep loss, an adjustable bed could actually be your savior. Here are 4 reasons why:

What Is Snoring? 

According to the NHS, snoring is caused by things such as your tongue, mouth, throat or airways in your nose vibrating as you breathe. It can occur on a regular, nightly basis or more intermittently. It is important to understand how snoring can be prevented, particularly when it is affecting your sleep.

How Can It Be Prevented? 

Most suggested preventions of snoring require lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and refraining from drinking alcohol. However, an adjustable bed could be the simple solution to your sleepless nights!

How Can An Adjustable Bed Help?

1) It Keeps You Upright

This allows the airways to be kept clearer than they would be when using several pillows. Using pillows to prop your head up can also lead to back and neck pains, which can be temporarily relieved when using an adjustable bed.

2) Adjust Your Sleeping Position

Similarly, an adjustable bed allows you to sleep in an elevated position, improving the air flow. It is easy to change the position of your bed whenever you begin to snore or start to feel uncomfortable.

3) Sleep Comfortably On Your Side

By sleeping on your side, less pressure is put on your lung airways, thus preventing the likelihood of snoring. Traditional beds do not conform to your spines alignment when sleeping on your side, whereas an adjustable bed does. This means that sleeping on your side on an adjustable bed is neither awkward nor uncomfortable.

4) Adjust To Both You & Your Partners Needs

Dual operated adjustable beds allow both you and your partner to find the perfect sleeping position. No more sleeping on the sofa!

Other Benefits Of Sleeping With Your Head Elevated

  • Lessens shortness of breath: Shortness of breath can occur when lying flat. This can be down to a range of conditions, both medical and psychological. Sleeping with your head elevated can help you to breathe better when sleeping.

  • Migraine relief: Research suggests that sleeping with your head elevated can relieve over 70% of migraines. This is due to the fact that less pressure is put on the head when it is elevated as opposed to when you are lying flat.

  • Improved digestion: Sleeping with your head elevated can help to improve your digestion. This is due to the fact that this sleeping position prevents your body from retaining gas in your stomach. It can also help to prevent heartburn and acid reflux, meaning a more comfortable nights sleep!
