Temporary relief from hiatus hernia and acid reflux symptoms.
Do you wake up at night with a painful burning sensation in your throat? Do you find yourself suffering from an unexplained hoarseness, dry cough or sore throat during the day? Do you have trouble swallowing food? These are all signs that you might be suffering from acid reflux or a hiatal hernia. These symptoms occur because acid from the stomach backs up into the esophagus.

Doctors recommend that if you suffer from reflux you should sleep with your head elevated. If you’re sleeping on an angle, gravity helps keep food in the stomach. Conversely, if you lose the gravity, as you do when you’re lying flat, you’re more prone to reflux. An adjustable bed makes it much easier to find a therapeutic position that may help you find temporary relief from your symptoms.
Lower back pain relief is one of the most common search terms for a reason.
According to the American Chiropractic Association half of all American’s admit to having back pain symptoms each year and back pain is the most common reason for people to miss work. Most cases of back pain are not caused by a serious medical condition but are the result of a mechanical or non-organic issue.
Trying to find sleep when your back is aching can be difficult. Adjusting the head or foot of an adjustable bed can help you find a position that may help to temporarily relieve your low back pain symptoms. Additionally, an adjustable bed can help you get in and out of bed easier when your back is hurting. Raising the head of the bed to its full height lets the bed do all of the work to gently get you to a full sitting position. Once upright you only have to swing your legs to the side to get out of bed. The sequence can be reversed for an easier entry into bed.
Edema symptom relief may be as simple as putting your feet up.
Edema means swelling caused by fluid in your body’s tissues. In most cases it occurs in the feet, ankles and legs. The most common recommendation medical professionals make is to raise your legs to allow the fluid to circulate out of the legs and into the rest of your body.
Resting or sleeping in an adjustable bed makes it easy to raise your legs and find a therapeutic position that might temporarily relieve your painful symptoms or reduce the unattractive look of swollen legs and ankles.
Better sleep provides therapeutic benefits for your mental health.
Raising the head or foot of the bed can make a therapeutic difference in some of the most common ailments that keep you up at night. Getting a good night’s sleep also helps raise your spirits, helps increase your energy and helps you to focus better during your waking hours. Increased energy levels allow you to be more active during the day — allowing you to create a positive new cycle in your health.
