Your Flat Mattress May Be Hurting More Than Just Your Spine

Adjustable beds

By now, the majority of Americans know that flat mattresses might not be the most ideal way to sleep. Diagrams and charts and pictures with spines superimposed over uncomfortable sleepers are a common sight when researching sleep systems. So most people agree, spines across the nation could benefit from adjustable beds. But what about the rest of your body?

Did you know that your flat mattress may also be hindering your breathing throughout the night? When your spine is aligned properly, your lungs are working at optimal efficiency. But laying on your side on a flat mattress can cause gravity to pull your lungs in directions they might not be used to, and can also decrease the efficiency of your diaphragm. Lying on your back provides some relief, but the same flat mattress worries that put your spine under so much extra tension can also constrict your ribcage from expanding properly, and might prevent you from taking the good, deep breaths your body needs.

And did you ever wonder why so many adjustable beds nowadays come with heat and massage capabilities? It can certainly make for a more comfortable sleeping experience, but these features may also help ease or alleviate a wide variety of symptoms, like poor circulation (which can lead to edema or swelling), gastric reflux (which can lead to nighttime heartburn), and even symptoms of hiatal hernia.

So you see, spines are not the only parts of the body that might sing the praises of adjustable beds. All that and the possibility of a better night of sleep? No wonder the world is talking. Great references here.
