If you're in the market for a new bed, you may have heard about adjustable bases. These special bases can elevate your head and feet at the push of a button, leading to increased relaxation, better sleep and a slew of health benefits.
While many folks think adjustable bases are only for people who sleep on their backs, it's not true! Adjustable bases are good for side sleepers too.
Why Adjustable Bases Work for Side Sleepers
One of our GhostBed Sleep Experts, Greg, has helped hundreds of side sleepers find their perfect bed. He says many of these folks benefit from adjustable bases.
“As a side sleeper, you don't have to elevate your bed a whole lot to get benefits,” says Greg. He's found that even raising the head of the bed a few degrees can help side sleepers breathe better and sleep more soundly.
Best Adjustable Base Positions for Side Sleepers
That said, Greg has found some side-sleepers with hip pain experience relief from elevating their feet just a few degrees. Experiment (gently!) and see what works best for you.
Most side sleepers can elevate the head portion of the bed as much as they feel comfortable. Side sleepers who elevate their heads with an adjustable base often enjoy easier breathing, less acid reflux and improved circulation (which helps with relaxation).
The only position Greg doesn't recommend for side sleepers? The zero gravity feature, which elevates your head and feet to create a feeling of weightlessness.
Trying to sleep in this position as a side sleeper would put excess pressure on your hips and cause your spine to curve unnaturally–all things you don't want for a healthy sleep!
