What do 540 million people globally have in common? Back pain.
Though the causes of back pain – such as injury, pregnancy, or degenerative disease – may vary, the best way to make yourself comfortable is to keep your spine in a neutral and aligned position for as long as possible.
If your spine is misaligned for the five to eight hours or so that you spend in bed daily, it will either cause pain or exacerbate existing back pain.
Instant Comfort Smart Beds for back pain are a breakthrough in the technology of adaptive, smart sleep science. Back pain can be a minor annoyance, or it can be so utterly debilitating that it becomes difficult to just get through the day without relying on painkillers. Being in a state of constant pain can have a profound negative effect on your personal life and prevent you from being able to do the things you enjoy with the people you love. This type of pain can make it more difficult for you to work, no matter if you have an office job or one that requires you to be on your feet. It can also make travel plans that involve sitting on a plane, carrying luggage, or enduring a long car ride seem wickedly un-fun.
Your lumbar spine occupies the lower region of your back below the thoracic vertebrae and above your sacrum, which connects to your pelvis. It contains five vertebrae known as L1, L2, L3, L4 and L5. These vertebrae support the weight of your torso and are designed to be flexible, making them more prone to injury than your more rigid thoracic vertebrae. The most fragile part of your spine is your cervical spine, which extends from your shoulder level upwards toward the base of your skull. The smaller bones combined with the head’s weight can increase the likelihood of injury in this part of your body.
Because your lumbar region is more flexible, it is the most prone to developing issues related to sleeping when your supportive muscle tissues are more relaxed. Instant Comfort Smart Beds for back pain are designed to provide the perfect map of customized pressure to maintain correct spinal alignment throughout the night.
In addition to adjusting your bed and your sleeping position, there are a few things you can do to find relief when sleeping with back pain:
The best mattress for back pain relief is one that will help you achieve correct spinal alignment. A poorly fitting mattress can cause or worsen existing back pain by straining muscles and disrupting spinal alignment. If you’re wondering, “Why does my lower back hurt when I wake up?” If your back pain is worse in the mornings, your mattress is the likely culprit. You spend a lot of cumulative hours sleeping, and a bed that’s too soft or too firm can throw your spine out of alignment and wreak havoc on your life. A high-quality mattress like the S7 can provide instant comfort, making it a smart bed choice for back pain problems.
Most spinal specialists advise that the best way to sleep for lower back pain is on your back with your legs straight. Additionally, sleeping on your side, with a pillow between your mostly straight knees, can take some pressure off of your lower back.
For back sleepers with chronic or acute back pain, having an adjustable base to elevate your knees will help tremendously. With a traditional bed, the only way to elevate your knees is by stacking pillows underneath them, which can shift or become displaced throughout the night and end up on the floor. Regardless of whether you use pillows or an adjustable base, it’s recommended to elevate your legs slightly to relieve pressure from your lower back. Elevating your trunk with pillows or an adjustable bed frame can similarly take pressure off your lumbar spine.
If you prefer to sleep on your side and have back pain, it is recommended that you sleep with your knees straight and place a pillow between them. If this is uncomfortable, bend your knees slightly while keeping your posture relaxed.
Most doctors do not recommend sleeping on your stomach if you suffer from back pain, as this can put additional stress on your lumbar. If you must sleep on your stomach, try not to use a pillow underneath your head, and instead put one under your hips to prevent them from sinking into the mattress, causing spinal misalignment.
A smart bed is an innovative bed that adapts to the sleeper’s body according to the precise needs of the individual sleeper.
Instant Comfort Smart Beds change with you, so if you feel more comfortable on a firmer surface one night and desire something softer the next, finding optimal comfort is as easy as the touch of a button.
These beds use air channels of 24-gauge vulcanized rubber to inflate or deflate, producing the perfect softness or firmness for your body. Advanced sensor technology enables smart beds to map out your body’s pressure points and collect data that can be used to adjust the firmness of the bed to compensate for these points. Instant Comfort Smart Beds feature premium fabrics designed to wick away heat with maximum efficiency, as well as gel-infused visco elastic foam in the comfort layer. The firmness can be controlled via remote control or smartphone app. With over 45 different sleep settings, finding your perfect feel has never been easier or more precise.
There is no denying that smart beds are the future of sleep. As we learn more about the science of sleep, we will continue to discover new scientific materials and applications through advancing technologies. We are constantly pushing the envelope, finding ways to help people learn, and invent ways to help people live longer, healthier, fuller lives. One thing is for sure: sleep is essential to human life.
Smart beds are different from other beds in that they are able to accurately sense what your body needs for comfort and can be adjusted to those specifications effortlessly and instantaneously. The expansive range of Instant Comfort Smart Beds takes comfort a step further by ensuring that even within the range of 45 different options available, those settings are all within your comfort preference of firm, plush, or ultra plush. The adaptive cover on the Instant Comfort Q9 uses platinum Thermacool technology on one side and bamboo on the other, keeping your temperature optimal for both the warm summer months and the cool winter months.
An adjustable bed enables you to utilize your mattress in a lot more ways than a traditional bed frame. Pairing your smart bed with an adjustable base allows you to utilize it in many more ways than a traditional flat mattress base would. Those who suffer from back pain will benefit from elevating the head of their bed for reading as well as dialing up the firmness to support you in this sitting position. Lower the bed back down for sleep and use the touchscreen controls to soften things up a bit. Adjustable bases are becoming quite popular due to their convenience.
