Back Pain and Sleeping: Can a Good Mattress Alleviate the Pain at Night?

Then, you hear adjustable bases can help, and you’re rushing to find the finest adjustable base in San Diego.

But, you stop to think. How do you know if your mattress works with an adjustable base? Perhaps you like to sleep on your side, and you’re unsure if adjustable bases are good for side sleepers. Or, perhaps, the notion of a zero gravity position helping with back pain sounds a bit out of this world to you. Well, don’t worry, we’ll help you find a mattress compatible with the adjustable base of your dreams in no time!

How can I stop my back from hurting when I sleep?What is the best mattress for back pain

If your back is hurting during the night, there are several sleeping positions you can try out to alleviate back pain at night according to Stanford Center for Sleep Medicine.

  1. Side pillow – Turn on your left side, placing your left arm at an upward  90-degree angle below the pillow. Your right arm should be placed on your upper side, with your knees bent. Lastly, put a pillow between your legs for a better night’s sleep.
  2. Fetal on the side – This position greatly helps with a herniated disc. Lie on your side, pressing your knees toward your arms, curling into a fetal position. Just make sure that you switch sides.
  3. Abdomen pillow – This is a simple one. Lie on your stomach, and place a pillow underneath pelvis. The head pillow is up to you – if it’s more comfortable with it, use it, if not, don’t.
  4. Back pillow – Lie flat on your back and put a pillow under your knees to keep the spine in a neutral position. If you feel like you need additional support, take a towel, roll it, and place it beneath the small of the back.

If all of these positions fail to alleviate your back problems, it’s time to think about different options. Replacing your mattress should be the first item on your list, closely followed by buying an adjustable base.

What is the best way to sleep on an adjustable bedWhat is the best way to sleep on an adjustable bed?

This is definitely an easy question to answer. There is no ‘best’ or ‘worst’ way to sleep on an adjustable bed. Whatever works for you is the best way, and whatever doesn’t – the worst.

The trick to using adjustable bases is trial and experimentation. Try a certain position, see how it feels, then try another one, and another, and another one after that. Keep trying out new positions, and settle for the one that feels the best to you.

Although there are some preprogrammed positions that come with every adjustable base that can help you with your back pain, no one can say they’re going to work for you. That is why you should experiment until you find the one that is just right.
