Pain Awareness Month: Adjustable Beds & Back Pain
Statistics & Figures of Back Pain:
According to the NHS, back pain accounts for 11% of the UK’s disabilities, affecting more than 1 in 10 people. In the UK, back pain is also the most common reason for early retirement and medically approved sick leave. There are many possible causes of back pain such as posture, awkwardly lifting heavy objects and even stress.
What Is An Adjustable Bed?
An adjustable bed is rather self-explanatory. It is a bed that can be adjusted to enable you to find the perfect sleeping position for you. This means that you are able to find a position which temporarily relieves your back pain, and offers you optimum comfort.
How Can An Adjustable Bed Help With My Back Pain?
Although adjustable beds do not cure back pain, they can certainly offer a temporary positional relief. Here are three examples of how:
Contouring The Spine:
One of the main causes of back pain is posture, and improper support of the spine. Sitting, standing and lying down in the wrong ways can lead to bad posture, which can trigger back pain. Your spine is naturally a curved ‘S’ shape, and therefore lying on a flat mattress does not offer it the correct support. Furthermore, the pressure of lying on a flat mattress can put great pressure onto the sciatic nerve, often worsening back pain.
No More Pillows:
Often individuals with back pain sleep with pillows between their legs or underneath their knees for additional support. This may work temporarily, however when you move around in the night, so do the pillows! With an adjustable bed, additional support is offered no matter what position you’re in, all through the night. This is a particularly good benefit for side sleepers.
Leg & Knee Elevation:
For those who sleep on their backs, keeping your knees and legs elevated can help you to relieve any pressure from your back, thus offering temporary positional pain relief.
Other benefits of adjustable beds:
Other than temporarily relieving back pain, there are multiple other positive impacts that an adjustable bed can have on you. Here are our top 3:
As stated before, our spines are naturally formed in a curved ‘S’ shape. By sleeping on a mattress that morphs to the natural curve of your spine, maximum support is offered to your back. This helps to improve your posture, tackling the risk of back pain before it starts.
Settle acid reflux:
Acid reflux symptoms can make it difficult to sleep. By keeping your upper body elevated, these symptoms can be reduced. With an adjustable bed, your upper body can be propped up at the simple press of a button, meaning there’s no longer a need for multiple pillows!
Snoring can be just as frustrating for you as it is for your partner, and it occurs mostly when you lie flat on your back. By sleeping with your head elevated, oxygen can flow more freely, reducing the likelihood of snoring.
