The average person will spend one third of their life sleeping yet our beds are often overlooked as the source of our aches and pains.Sleeping on a bed that is too soft or firm can cause all sorts of problems including poor posture, strained muscles and misaligned spinal positioning. This all contributes to you waking up in the morning with those unwanted aches and pains. Read on to discover 4 ways an adjustable bed can help provide you with some temporary positional relief:
Causes of Aches & Pains
When you are asleep your mind not only gets a chance to relax- your muscles do too. Sleep provides your body with the time it needs to rest, restore and recuperate for the day ahead.
A bed that is too soft provides improper support, leading to poor sleep, increased fatigue and ultimately you waking up with aches and pains. Similarly, a bed that is too hard can lead to stiffness the following day.
How an Adjustable Bed Can Help
A bed that can mold to your body shape provides you with the support needed to evenly distribute pressure points across your body. In turn, this allows your body to relax in the correct position so you can have a restful nights sleep and ultimately wake up with reduced aches and pains.
With an adjustable bed you can change into various sleeping positions so you achieve a sleeping position that provides the most comfortable position for you to sleep in:
1. Neutral Resting Positions for Maximum Comfort
Your body and spine are curved not flat. If you sleep on a flat mattress, gaps are created between your body
and the mattress and you are left without support in those areas. By slightly elevating the head and foot section of your bed, you spread out pressure across your body which helps to relieve aches and pains the following day.

2. Help Getting In & Out Of Bed
Aches and pains can be caused by moving in a way which puts strain on your body. An adjustable bed helps you to get in and out of your bed safely and easily to avoid any unnecessary strain.
3. Support Whilst Awake
An adjustable bed is perfect for relaxing on in the day whilst watching TV or reading a book. Instead of propping pillows beneath you for support, an adjustable bed can be elevated to a more comfortable position to improve your comfort whilst awake.
4. Built-in Massage
Some adjustable beds are available to purchase with inbuilt massage. This is a wonderful feature which helps to relax sore muscles, improve circulation and reduce your aches and pains.
