So you’re dealing with arthritis or having joint pain problems, and you’re struggling to get good night’s sleep. Don’t stress. We’ve got your back! Common symptoms of arthritis include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and tenderness. The way to improve your sleep might be easier than you think.
Here are some solutions that will help you get the quality sleep that you deserve:
1. Sleep on a plush mattress
Choosing the wrong bed when you have arthritis can worsen the conditions, which is why it is extra important to get the right mattress that can ease arthritis pain. If you’re having joint pain or trouble moving around, we highly recommend sleeping on a plush mattress. A soft surface gives you less resistance against your hips, shoulders and other joints. Sleeping on a soft surface can actually ease joint pain, making it easier for you to move around. Its inner core and supple top layers can provide a cushioned support for your entire body. Furthermore, we would advise you to avoid an innerspring or more firm mattresses. Metal coils can make the beds more responsive and firm mattresses can possibly worsen your pain.
In this case, going with a plush, all-foam mattress is the solution. All-foam mattresses give the bed more still too because it doesn’t have linked coils that transfer the movement around the bed. So if you want a bed that improves your sleeping experience, we’ve got a variety of plush latex mattresses sourced from all-natural and organic materials like wool, 100% botanical latex, and organic cotton. The Woodland Park Plush Mattress is our top recommendation. Here’s a video preview…
2. Adjustable Bases
If you have a hard time moving around, getting an adjustable base is also a great idea. Adjustable bases are convenient. It comes with many features that allow you to raise the head or foot of the bed to any sleeping position you want. If your arthritis symptoms are making it difficult for you to get up, an adjustable base enhances an ability that raises its head close to the 90-degree angle which is a game-changer for those who have severe joint pain.
Sleeping on an adjustable base is also the best solution to stop snoring as it provides the ability to incline your head even higher than any pillow could. Elevating the head of your bed improves oxygen level. It also pushes down the tongue, allowing smoother airway circulation.
Our Contemporary lll Adjustable Base is the one for people with arthritis and it comes with an anti-snore position! With this bed, all you need to do is press one button and you can ease all of your problems.
Additional tips to try
Our recommendations are simple and convenient. However, if you’re looking for more ways to improve your sleep, we recommend you try the following:
- Sleep on your back. Sleeping on your back can prevent your hips, shoulders, and other joints to make direct contact with the mattress. If you have joint pain, we highly suggest avoiding sleeping on your side.
- Choose flat pillows. Going with thin pillows is a perfect combination with sleeping on your back. Less stuffing pillows allow your neck and back to rest flat on the bed which can improve your pain. We have many great pillow options for back sleepers that are sourced from organic and natural matters: bamboo, wool, latex, and kapok.
