How Adjustable Beds Help You Stop Snoring

Snoring is a common problem that affects 37 million Americans regularly. It occurs when the air doesn't follow freely through the airways while you are sleeping. The turbulent airflow causes the tissues in your throat to vibrate and cause snoring sounds.

Reasons for snoring can vary dramatically, from lifestyle habits and individual anatomy to medical conditions and sleeping environment. One of the elements that often causes a person to snore is an improper sleeping position. That's where adjustable beds come in.

Adjustable beds can potentially alleviate snoring by offering customizable sleeping positions. While they can't address any medical issues, these beds can make your and your partner's sleep more comfortable.

3 Ways Adjustable Beds Help Stop Snoring

1. By Elevating the Upper Body

When you sleep flat on your back, your tongue and soft palate may collapse to the back of your throat, partially obstructing the airway and causing snoring. By raising the upper body, the adjustable bed helps gravity work in your favor preventing the collapse of these tissues and promotes a more open airway.

Experiment with the height to find a comfortable position that eliminates snoring and improves your sleep quality, leaving you feeling more rested in the morning.

2. By Reducing Pressure on the Airways

An adjustable bed allows you to change the traditional sleeping position by raising the legs and bending the knees. This puts your body in a more ergonomic shape.

This position helps alleviate pressure on the diaphragm and chest, making it easier to breathe. When you put your body in a more relaxed and neutral position, you can reduce the likelihood of airway constriction, which is a common contributor to snoring.

An ergonomic position can also reduce the pressure on your back that keeps you tossing and turning at night.

3. By Offering Customized Comfort

An adjustable bed can offer customized comfort by allowing you to tailor your sleeping position to your unique needs. Whether you prefer to read a book or watch TV before bed, an adjustable bed can help you find the perfect angle to do so comfortably. Additionally, if you suffer from back or joint pain, you can adjust the bed to alleviate pressure on those areas and promote a more restful sleep.

For couples who have different sleep preferences, an adjustable bed can be particularly helpful, as each side can be adjusted separately to provide optimal comfort, support, and snore relief.

An adjustable bed can be an excellent and comfortable solution for your snoring problem. By finding the perfect position and reducing the pressure on your airways, you can enjoy a good night's sleep and wake up feeling rested.

While an adjustable bed isn't a cure for all types of snoring, it can be a major step toward making your sleep as fulfilling and healthy as possible. Visit a Land of Sleep showroom to test an adjustable bed for yourself and feel the difference.
