There is nothing worse than watching a loved one endure pain. Whether the hurt is large or small, temporary or terminal, every single one of us has tried to comfort that special person and wished to whatever powers that be that we could absorb their hurts.
This is an unfortunate impossibility, but thanks to modern technology, there are a number of ways to minimize bodily pain for a loved one. One of the most overlooked methods is to re-invent the way they sleep by getting rid of a traditional horizontal mattress in favor of one of the many available dual adjustable beds. Dual adjustable beds allow for flexible sleep options that can work to target your partner’s chronic pain. Most obviously, an adjustable bed can support your upper body much like a chair or couch does while still providing a position conducive to sleep. This incline at the top of the mattress can prevent our unconscious instincts to curl up and switch positions during sleep, thus preventing the exacerbation of a chronic injury with sudden unfriendly movements.
Dual adjustable beds also come with many added regulatory functions in addition to height change. Many offer massage mattresses that greatly aid bed comfort, or heated mattress pads to relieve the tension in chronically sore muscles. Furthermore, if any of these options are counterproductive to your own sleep but helpful to your partner, many styles of adjustable beds offer split function mattresses that allow you to sleep the way you prefer while still providing relief to the one you love.
The holiday season may be over, but it’s always an appropriate time to take someone’s ailments into your hands. You don’t have to watch helplessly as someone you care about suffers. Consider investing in an adjustable bed, and you might find that you and it are the key to helping them rest easier.
