Benefits of a Gardner Mattress Adjustable Base
Americans are sleep-deprived individuals. Millions of Americans have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep every evening. For some, the issue is rooted in their 24/7 lifestyle of too much work, screen time, and life worries. For others, the problem seems to be caused by a poor sleep environment that includes bright lights, excessive noise, and the use of devices like computers and phones.
For still others, sleep problems are caused by medical issues such as sleep apnea, joint issues, arthritis, back pain, and heartburn – to name a few. Whatever the cause of sleep disturbances, there are many solutions that can be attempted.
An adjustable base for a bed is one such solution that many sleep experts suggest as a solution to sleep deprivation and for many medical ailments that impact sleep. Let’s explore the benefits of using a Gardner Mattress adjustable base to help alleviate sleep issues.
What Is an Adjustable Base?
An adjustable base is a mechanical bed frame that can raise or lower the head and/or foot of the bed for ultimate comfort, pain relief, or pressure relief.
Many of our Gardner Mattress adjustable bases come with a remote or the option to control the position using a smartphone or voice commands through Siri. Additionally, many of our bases come with a customizable save feature that allows the sleeper to return to their favorite sleep position each night.
Benefits of Adjustable Bases
What might seem like a simple addition to a bedding system can make a world of difference to those struggling to sleep. Many people with health conditions can find some level of relief using an adjustable base.
Relief from Sleep Apnea or Snoring
If you have been told you snore or have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, using a raised head may be able to help alleviate the symptoms. An elevated mattress can take the pressure off the windpipe and allow for more air to flow to the lungs. Talk to your doctor about your snoring and treatments that may be available.
If you suffer from water retention or swelling of your legs or feet, you may benefit from having your legs elevated as you watch your nightly television shows or while you sleep.
If you work on your feet all day, you may find that elevating your legs helps reduce swelling. An adjustable bed makes it easier to do this without worrying about the pile of pillows under your feet getting moved.
If getting in and out of your bed nightly is a challenge, the adjustable head and back feature can help get you sitting up and ready to swing your legs over the edge.
Lessen Acid Reflux and Heartburn
If you have ever suffered from acid reflux or heartburn, you know how important it is to keep your upper body in a raised position. In fact, many people without an adjustable base find themselves sleeping in a recliner or a chair to help alleviate the burning sensation. An adjustable base can help you rest easily and reduce the symptoms overnight.
Reduce Chronic Pain
Joints such as your hips, knees, and shoulders are put under a lot of pressure when a person is a side sleeper. Reduce that pressure with an adjustable base that allows you to get comfortable in a myriad of positions.
