Electric / Adjustable Bed Guide
People who suffer from back pain should be especially choosy about the type of bed and mattress they sleep on. While there is very little research in general about what types of mattresses and beds are best for the back—and no real medical research about electrically adjustable beds—we do get a lot of questions about whether or not an adjustable and or electric bed is a better option than a flat mattress for people with back pain.
As the name suggests, an adjustable electric bed can be adjusted to a number of different positions.
For individuals with certain types of back problems, sleeping on an electrically adjustable bed that is at a slight incline (e.g. 30 to 45 degrees) may be comfortable, with the upper body positioned higher up than the lower body (as when sitting in a recliner) and some support under the knees to bend the knees at a slight angle. The combination of upper body incline and the knee support can help take some of the stress off the lower back.
An electric adjustable bed has the potential to help anyone who feels more comfortable in an inclined position (such as sitting on a recliner with the feet up) rather than when lying on a regular flat mattress.
Back pain is the most common type of chronic pain problem, and is the most prevalent medical disorder in industrialised societies. Not surprisingly, individuals with chronic back pain problems frequently report significant interference with sleep disrupted or non-restorative sleep.
As a consequence, individuals suffering from chronic pain often find that their problems are compounded by the additional difficulties that come with insomnia and sleeping disorders. Of those who report experiencing chronic pain - approximately 65% report having sleep disorders. Research has demonstrated that disrupted sleep will, in turn, exacerbate the chronic back pain problem. Thus, a vicious cycle develops in which the back pain disrupts one's sleep, and difficulty sleeping makes the pain worse, which in turn makes sleeping more difficult, etc.
