Snoring Solutions: Position Yourself For Better Sleep

Snoring affects nearly 90 million American adults. Of those, 37 million suffer from habitual snoring. While occasionally snoring is not a serious risk and more of a bother to your bed partner, it can become a serious health concern if you are a habitual snorer. Quality sleep is greatly reduced for you and your partner and snoring may also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, which can lead to higher blood pressure and a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.

Snoring is a result of an obstruction of airflow as it moves through the mouth and nose. This can be caused by obstructed nasal airways due to allergies or sinus infections, a deviated septum, being overweight leading to bulky throat tissue, or poor muscle tone in the throat and tongue. Snoring also becomes more serious as people age.

Symptoms

  • Observed pauses in breathing during sleep
  • Morning headaches
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Awakening at night feeling confused

Sleep Positions for Snorers

There are certain sleep positions that can help reduce snoring. If you have any of the symptoms above or you have been told that your snoring is disrupting others sleep schedules, these product solutions can help you have a better night’s rest.

  • Adjustable bases allow you to tilt your upper torso upward, raising your head higher than your abdomen in neutral posture position. This helps to keep airways open and clear while you sleep.
  • Bed Wedges provide the same benefit of adjustable bases with more affordable options. Easily move wedge pieces for personalized comfort.
  • Pillows with adequate support are key and sleeping on your side is ideal for keeping airways open. Ergonomic pillows like the TEMPUR-Neck Pillow help prevent snoring by supporting your neck and shoulders while sleeping on your side.

Treatment for snoring varies from person to person, as always consult your doctor if symptoms continue or worsen.

4 Benefits of an Adjustable Base

AdjustableBaseBetter Sleep Month kicks off this May. Supported by the Better Sleep Council (BSC), Better Sleep Month aims to bring awareness to the importance of quality sleep while encouraging people to establish healthy sleep patterns. Sleep is just as important to our physical, mental, and emotional health as diet and exercise. Getting your best night’s rest starts with creating a sleep environment that promotes comfort and relaxation.

Keeping technology and work materials out of the bedroom, exercising early in the day or evening, and making sleep a priority are a few ways to work towards healthier sleeping habits.

Key to a good night’s rest is being in a sleep position that promotes comfort and circulation. Having the ability to move into the proper sleep position can help reduce the physical stresses on your body so you can relax and wake up feeling refreshed. An adjustable base allows you to adjust your position with simple controls.

If you’re looking to improve your sleep quality, consider these four benefits of an adjustable base:

Find neutral posture position: When our body is properly aligned our bones, rather than our muscles, support our weight. The neutral posture position is a measurable set of angles of 128 degrees between the torso and thigh and 133 degrees between the hamstring and calf. This position allows the spine to be in its most relieved, relaxed and stable alignment. This in turn improves circulation, reduces pressure on the spine, relieves tension and alleviates low back pain.

Personalized comfort: An adjustable base provides a personalized sleep system and the perfect position based on your preferences to ensure a comfortable, relaxing sleep experience.

Rejuvenating massage: Ease tension, increase circulation, reduce stress, and improve sleep with a relaxing vibration massage.

Reduce acid reflect and heartburn: Sleeping with your head elevated helps reduce acid reflux and heartburn by retaining stomach acids and keeping them from traveling up to the esophagus.

 

You’re One Visit Away from Quality Sleep

Did you know 71% of Americans are not getting enough sleep? There are a number of different factors that can contribute to sleep loss; hectic job, stressful evenings at home, busy schedules, etc. When life is demanding a lot of your time, sleep is often the first thing to be put on the back burner even though it is no secret that sleep is essential to a healthy mind, body, and pain-free lifestyle.

Fortunately, our trained experts are here to help. When you visit a Relax The Back location, our consultants work with you to create the ideal sleep environment to help you get the restorative sleep you need. Think cool, dark, and quiet.

Franchisee owner, April Vance, of our Nashville, TN location, shared a memorable experience with a recent customer. An attorney was referred to Relax The Back by a friend of his and stopped by while she was working. He had not slept well in 3 weeks. He was gruff and short tempered. She spent an hour with him as he relaxed and tried pillows and various wedges. He made his purchase of a pillow and long bed wedge. A week later, on a follow up, he was very happy and reported he had slept all night, very restfully, since leaving our store. And he apologized for being gruff.

This displays our core values as a company. Whether you are in need of a wedge system or specialty pillow, or it’s time to replace your mattress, we work with you to determine a solution to help your individual needs. You will have the opportunity to try sleep products first-hand, lay on mattresses to test their comfort level, and feel the difference of a pillow and mattress that provide proper support of your body and spine.

Here are some of our franchisee owner’s favorite products to help you have a quality night’s rest:
