Mattress guidelines for
sleep comfort- How adjustable airbeds can impact sleep back
Mattresses are a personal choice. When searching for the best mattress, perhaps
the most important thing to remember is that adjustable airbeds are the perfect
answer for back pain sufferers who need the airbeds adjustability

STRAIGHTENED OUT DURING SLEEP. Also, it is harder for two partners to find a mattress they can
both get comfortable on.
Often, couples are forced into a "compromise mattress"
because each partner enjoys a different firmness level they each like. NOTE:
This is one of the great advantages offered with our adjustable
airbeds mattresses. Likewise, there is no single sleep position known to be best for all people.
This is due to several factors:
|There are many causes of back problems, and different back conditions may
respond better to specific types of beds, air bed mattresses and sleep positions.
There is a high degree of personal preference for mattresses, and what works
well for one person may not work well for another.
mattresses with springs and padded top comfort layering will literally 'deform'
over time due to body weight eventually causing springs or padding to
permanently compress and back pain for you as your spinal area actually bends
and causes your back pain. This is where the new push-button firmness
airbeds really are a "dream come true".
These indentations can cause even more back problems as
the crucial body lumbar region becomes "sunken" which causes back pain. Fortunately, the new technology
advancements in airbeds and the NASA Space Agency designed 'visco memory
foam' have solved many of these problems because they don't rely on inner
springs for support.
|Creating an environment conducive to sleep is very important in determining how
Using the new comfort adjustable airbeds and inviting bedroom can also be effective sleep aids, and can
make a difference in the quality of sleep experienced. Understanding how your

people have turned to the adjustable airbeds for back pain problems.
The following tips can
help create a restful adjustable airbeds sleep environment:
|Body or neck pillows to provide support; pillows under the knee, or between the
knees if a patient sleeps on his side, can relieve stress on painful areas.
|High quality airbeds are both comfortable and provide adequate
back pain support relief.
If it allows for adjustability of firmness the resulting relief of pain and
falling into a deeper sleep faster can make all the difference. Every body's
size, shape, weight and physical form affects how well the mattress 'adapts' to
allow restful sleep. Again, what could possibly be more perfect for morning back
pain from a too-soft mattress than an adjustable airbeds push-button
|Choosing the best mattress for low
back pain may be the single most important decision you make to find the
perfect supporting surface that helps you wake up with minimized morning
back pain. There are many benefits of good quality memory foam
padded airbeds when it concerns pain relief and
other sleep problems.
Sleeping on the wrong mattress has negative consequences for low back pain. A
mattress lacking in back support reinforces poor sleeping posture, strains
muscles and does not help keep the spine in alignment, all of which can increase
low back pain.
The patient also sacrifices sleep
comfort if they do not choose a mattress that matches their individual
preferences. Airbeds that provide
both sleep comfort and back support helps reduce low back pain, allowing the
structures in the spine to really rest and rejuvenate during the night.
|With the variety of different new
technology mattresses on the market, choosing the right mattress for
sleep comfort and back support can be a confusing decision.
For people with low back pain, it’s
definitely worth it to take time to select the best quality adjustable
their back - increasing the adjustable airbeds are being raved about by people
who have suffered sleep disorders and back pain before switching to
their memory foam topper airbeds.
The more sleep research and smart
online airbeds mattress shopping you do gives you
the best chance of making a wise sleep decision that could greatly
improve the quality of your daily life - and save you a lot of cash
buying at factory direct ship prices. Maybe that's why airbeds have
become so popular the past 10 years.
|Choosing the best airbed mattress for patients with low back pain or chronic sleep
problems like insomnia and frequently waking up during the night is critical.
The new digital number push-button
controller airbeds mattress combines adjustable firmness control and "body
forming memory foam" comfort layers have proven to be the best choice for many
people. There is no doubt that both COMFORT and BACK SUPPORT are extremely
important in falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer. This promotes a
higher "quality of sleep" that lets many people reach the important REM "deep
sleep cycle" found to be the most restful and refreshing sleep.
The following practical guidelines are designed to help patients with low back
pain choose the best airbeds type for back support and sleep comfort:
|Personal preference should
ultimately determine which brand of airbeds to purchase. Any
mattress that helps someone sleep without pain and stiffness is the best
mattress for that individual. There is no single mattress that works for all
people with low back pain. Patients should choose their adjustable airbeds model
based on what meets their
standards for comfort and support and allows them to get a good night’s sleep.
Find a mattress with sufficient back support to reduce low back pain.
Good airbeds should provide support while allowing for the natural
curves and alignment of the spine. Proper back support from the
controllable firmness adjustable airbeds also helps the
patient avoid muscle soreness in the morning. A recent study indicates that
medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm
Achieve a balance between back support and sleep comfort when buying
airbeds. Overall comfort while sleeping on the mattress is equally
important as sufficient back support. Sleeping on a mattress that is too
firm can cause aches and pains on pressure points. A medium-firm
mattress may be more comfortable because it allows the shoulder and hips
to sink in slightly. Patients who want a firmer mattress for back
support can get one with thicker memory foam padding for even greater comfort.
This is probably why the new adjustable airbeds, which offer
push-button control of firmness, and still contour to your body shape are
increasing in popularity. Another reason the airbeds with a generous top
layer of visco elastic "memory foam" have achieved such success is the fact that
most have two internal - and separately push-button controller adjustable air bladders. This solves
the age-old problem of having two people with different body sizes, weights,
sleep problems and body shapes of trying to find a mattress comfortable for both
|Know when it’s time to try one
of these new-fangled airbeds? If an old mattress sags visibly in the
middle or if the patient is no longer sleeping comfortably on the
mattress, it is probably time to purchase a new one. Putting boards
under a sagging mattress is only a short-term fix and may cause more
back problems and low back pain in the long run. If the old mattress is
still comfortable for the patient, he or she may choose to wait before
buying the new adjustable airbeds. But, sooner or later, the controller
adjustable airbeds will make sleeping a lot more comfortable - and being
awake a lot less painful - especially when that morning mattress back
pain is gone.
|Shop for the best value and quality of the
airbeds mattress rather than for just the lowest price.
Finding a high-quality mattress is usually worth the investment, considering the
effect a mattress can have on low back pain and sleep comfort. However, a higher
price is no guarantee that the mattress is more comfortable or more supportive
than a less expensive mattress. Especially if you are shopping online, many
companies offer very high quality airbeds that are shipped directly
to your home from the factory. You might have to wait a little longer for your
new airbeds arrival, but the cost savings compared to paying high retail store
prices are well worth the wait.
|Be aware of ALL mattress advertising gimmicks. Claims that a mattress is
“orthopedic” or “medically-approved” should be viewed skeptically. There has not
been extensive medical research or controlled clinical trials on the topic of
mattresses and low back pain. The individual patient must determine whether or
not extra features on a mattress make it more comfortable or supportive for the
The right mattress can significantly contribute to having a good night’s sleep
and waking up feeling rested and refreshed.
Sleeping on the wrong mattress
can cause sleeplessness, back pain, and overall aches and pains. For people with
a back condition, sleep can aggravate the pain if the mattress isn’t a good fit.
That's where the new adjustable airbeds come in.
|Take good care of the new mattress. It is recommended that owners reposition
their mattress every six months to ensure that the mattress is evenly worn. This
includes rotating 180 degrees and flipping the mattress pillowtop lengthwise on a regular
basis if you purchase a traditional "innerspring" style mattress.
If you decide the new technology of airbeds sleep is for you,
look for the higher quality pillowtop models that have REVERSIBLE zip
off pillowtops that can be dry-cleaned to maintain even wear, removal of
dust mites and in case of "accidental spills" that would ruin the
"old-style innerspring" models.
|The bottom line is that the type of mattress that is best for any particular
person is really a matter of personal preference. That being said, there are a
number of useful guidelines when selecting a mattress or airbeds - as well as
suggestions for sleep positions - that are discussed in this web site. These
guidelines can be especially important to help people with back conditions to
help them sleep
|Selecting airbeds online can offer extra savings if you shop wisely and
avoid "retail stores with retail priced web sites". Great deals are possible from
companies that offer airbeds with direct factory shipping - saving you the higher
overhead "retail stores" need to cover. Some even offer very high
quality airbeds with visco memory foam, digital memory air systems and
high quality reversible pillowtops.
The "extreme high quality" airbeds even offer dust mite cover protection
- like the famous Hercules memory foam cover - and the highly regarded
vulcanized rubber canvas air bladders like those selling in some "retail
mall stores" at a FACTORY DIRECT SHIP price.
