Did you know that sleep can be a natural pain reliever for your arthritis?
If you suffer from pain, tiredness or swelling caused by arthritis, unfortunately you may find that your bed can be a source of discomfort rather than rest, meaning it’s hard to get any sleep at all.
If you are one of the many people affected by arthritis, read on to discover 3 surprising ways an adjustable bed can temporarily relieve your arthritic pain.
How an adjustable bed can help arthritis
1. Adjustable beds feel so comfortable
- Do you find it difficult finding a comfortable position to lie in at night due to your arthritis? If so, an adjustable bed could be your answer.
- When you sleep on a normal mattress, gaps are created between your body and the mattress which leaves you without support in those areas. As a result, your own muscles will need to provide the support, meaning increased fatigue and aches and pains on waking.
- With an adjustable bed at the touch of a button you can move yourself into the most comfortable position for you, giving you temporarily relief from your aching joints
2. Adjustable beds distribute your weight evenly
- Adjustable beds can provide temporarily relief of joint pain by distributing your body weight evenly.
- This ensures that your joints are properly supported across all parts of your body, giving you a better nights sleep.
3. Adjustable beds improve your blood flow
- A comfortable mattress and suitable sleeping position can improve your blood flow and may help ease pain caused by arthritis.
- An adjustable bed can help achieve a comfortable sleeping position, therefore helping blood circulation.
- Massage can ease your arthritis pain by increasing blood flow to affected areas which helps to reduce inflammation, relax tight muscles, and eliminate waste products such as lactic acid, which can cause stiffness when you wake up.
