The Bed That Fixes Back Pain

24 Jun. 2022

As science evolves and we come to understand more about what is good for us, what is bad for us and what can be better for us, it still takes time for this information to inspire new products that become common in our lives.

Let’s take the phrase ‘a good night’s sleep’, for instance. Most of us will probably think that this is referring to waking up fresh and ready to start the day, right? But there’s so much more to getting ‘a good night’s sleep’ than merely that. There are tons of health benefits that come with getting the right amount of sleep and tons of health risks associated with not getting enough.

There are a lot of issues people have with falling asleep, be it sleep syndromes such as sleep apnea or insomnia, or chronic aching in your back or joints. These people have been unfairly burdened with lying in bed for hours unsuccessfully trying to sleep. So it’s important to give yourself a way to ensure your perfect night of sleep, and we have the product that does that. But first, let’s take a look at the importance of ‘a good night’s sleep’.

Why Don’t We Sleep?

Lots of reasons can be behind lack of sleep. It might be environmental, such as a noisy home, a baby crying at night, or a snoring partner. It might be psychological - you’re worried about work, having relationship problems or just cannot switch off. Or perhaps you do a lot of your processing at night - you think about what you should have done that day, or those unpaid bills you need to find money for tomorrow. It can also be physical. Perhaps you’re not comfortable, you’re too cold, or your pillow is too hard. Whatever the reason, it’s time to fix it.

The Science of Sleeping

While we’re sleeping, our body is not simply unconscious. Our brain is working overtime to keep control of vital organs and functions (you don’t consciously control your breathing while exploring the land of Nod) and without sleep, both our physical and mental functioning is severely harmed.

Getting consistent quality sleep results in a multitude of health benefits, including, but not limited to:

- Being ill less often.

- Keeping your weight at healthy levels.

- Lowering your risk for serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease.

- Reducing stress and improving your overall mood.

- Storing and sorting memories and filtering out the stuff we decide to forget

- Allowing cells to regenerate

Good sleep is consistently linked to fighting off dementia, keeping strokes and heart attacks away, and improved mental health.

And although we still don’t know the exact reasons as to why we need sleep, the benefits of a ‘good night’s sleep’ are pretty clear. In terms of emotional health, sleep aids in facilitating the processing of emotional information. While sleeping, the brain is constantly working to both evaluate and remember thoughts and memories, and a lack of sleep is particularly harmful to the consolidation of positive emotional content.

With all that said, let’s see how we can tackle sleep and use it to our advantage.

An Adjustable Bed For Your Perfect Sleep

The only real way to get quality sleep is to do it naturally. Trying to hack your sleep with sleeping pills is not healthy! Not only are there a plethora of side effects, including dizziness throughout the day, negatively impacted drive, constipation and diarrhoea, but it’s perhaps more dangerous for consistent use, as you will build up a tolerance for the drug which leads to higher doses needed to make it work. Too high a dose can lead to depressed breathing when you sleep, which can and has caused death.

The conditions for your personal perfect sleep can be easily reached with an adjustable bed. An adjustable bed allows you to personalise your bed’s alignment and create the perfect environment to sleep in. Based on your needs, the bed can recline to help relieve chronic back pain, and also take pressure off your joints while sleeping.

Used regularly in hospitals, it’s really a wonder why we don’t use them regularly at home. Especially since raising sides of the bed leads to better circulation, which leads to better cardiovascular health and stress relief, not to mention a better overall posture.

If we were to recommend an adjustable chair for you, we’d have to go with the Adjustable Bed Base EB01. Purpose built for getting quality sleep and benefiting health, this model is really a no brainer.
