Health Benefits of CareCo Adjustable Beds

August 01, 2017 -

You’ve spent the last few weeks or months researching CareCo adjustable beds. It’s a big expense and a long-term commitment, so we understand why you wish to take your time in making your decision. Your comfort and that of your partner are paramount in your decision. Comfort for a good night of sleep is just one of many reasons that people ultimately opt for any adjustable beds. However, there are pragmatic reasons to replace your old non-adjustable and some of them include health benefits.

CareCo Adjustable Beds for Arthritis Relief

Health studies demonstrate that around one-third of arthritis patients experience sleep disruption on a regular basis. Typically, they report broken or insufficient sleep on average three times a week resulting from the pain of their condition. That is not good for general health and it’s not good for symptom relief. Without the recovery that sleep provides, the arthritis is not going to get better, creating a vicious circle. Although a CareCo adjustable bed is not a cure for such conditions, the right sleeping position (and the adjustable features designed to help you find it) will go some way to alleviate the pain.

Adjustable Beds and Circulation

Evidence suggests that using an adjustable bed in certain positions can improve blood circulation, which, in turn, has the added benefit of alleviating other health conditions such as arthritis. When blood pumps quicker, it is able to carry more white blood cells to repair wounds and speed up injury recovery, and alleviating swelling. Tightened muscles will relax with better blood flow leading to fewer muscle-related injuries. Finally, blood carries lactic acid away to the liver where it is broken down. This is one of the many benefits of exercise. Lactic acid build-up makes you feel stiff and lethargic, including joint soreness.

Adjustable Beds Improve Back Pain

Back pain is one of the main reasons customers consider purchasing a CareCo adjustable bed in the first place. They permit the user to set a position that is right for them, their comfort and to help lessen the problem of their pre-existing medical conditions. Some conditions require users to lie flat on their back (slipped disc), others need to sleep in a slight sitting or slouching position and others may need to sleep with their legs elevated (problems with the lumbar). These issues are not universal though; the important thing is that an adjustable bed allows you choice and flexibility for comfort and pain relief.

Adjustable Beds for Lung Conditions

Pneumonia and bronchitis, and patients with severe asthma (and those recovering from lung cancer) are strongly advised to sleep in a slightly inclined position. People with the flu or a severe cold should also sit up to relieve the worst symptoms. Doing so reduces pressure on the lungs and respiratory tract. With normal beds, you’ll need to use a large stack of pillows to elevate the upper body, but this is not particularly good for the back. It’s not all that comfortable either. That’s why customers rely on their CareCo adjustable beds to help them sleep well to alleviate their lung-related medical conditions.

For Digestion Problems

From the indigestion of eating too much to the severe discomfort of acid reflux, sleeping on an incline will also help relieve your digestion problems. Acid reflux is not dangerous in most cases, but it is deeply uncomfortable and can lead to disrupted sleep for the sufferer and their partner. A severe and hacking cough is the most common symptom but vomiting is common too. The reason it happens at night is how the body lies prone at this time. Slightly elevating the upper body reduces the amount of acid working its way up the oesophagus. Visit our adjustable bed shop for all our products.
