Air Mattress Benefits and Highlights
One of the best known benefits of sleeping on an air mattress is that it is able to naturally assist you in straightening out your body and removing the pressure from your neck, shoulders, back, hips, legs, and knees. Today countless chiropractors are not only using air mattresses themselves to sleep on, but also enthusiastically recommending them to their patients. Think about it for a moment: chiropractors give spinal adjustments to patients who are experiencing subluxations, or misalignment of the spine that causes spinal nerve irritation from the pressure. The human body is a dynamic mechanism with many checks and balances, but when the spine is out of alignment, much pain can ensue. At one point or another in our lives each of us has probably experienced back or neck pain that would probably have benefited (or did benefit) from a spinal adjustment, whether it be whiplash caused by a car accident, a fall, or a hard hit in sports. The chiropractor wisely recommends the air mattress to help his patientâ€™s spine â€śholdâ€ť the adjustments that he performs for them. Think of an air mattress as your nightly chiropractor. Most everyone knows what itâ€™s like to awaken with a â€ścrick in your neck.â€ť A sleep number air mattress can help to eliminate this and other related sensations, and keep your vertebrae in check.
The Air Mattress and its Sleep Number
An air mattress works by filling a bladder surrounded by foam with air through a pump that is controlled by a handheld device. The handheld device is usually a simple remotely-controlled digital apparatus that has various settings, each being manifested as a sleep number, hence the reason it got its now well-known name, the sleep number mattress. The remote of the air mattress registers a different number per the amount of air that is forced into the air chambers by the air pump. The air mattress has become extremely popularized not only because of its comfort and ability to adjust firmness levels, but also because of its simplicity and ease-of-use. Users of the air bed become very loyal to the technology within a very short period of time of adopting it because of the personalization factor (each partner having the ability to choose their own sleep number for their side of the bed) and because it isnâ€™t rocket science, just an easy to remember two digit number they use to define their comfort level for sleeping purposes.
Solving Domestic Disputes With Air Mattresses
The air mattress is the perfect solution for couples who cannot agree on a firmness level for a mattress. While it may seem like an easy fix to get a couple to compromise on a mattress that is of medium-range firmness, the reality is that there are a number of reasons why two different people arenâ€™t able to experience a restful sleep from a mattress that was a â€ścompromise.â€ť One partner may have a medical condition that would require firmer support, while the other would just toss and turn all night if they were to be subjected to that level of firmness. Beyond the preference for leanings towards more softness or more firmness, there could also be complaints from one of the partners causing too much motion transfer in the bed, as he or she may be a very â€ślivelyâ€ť and â€śactiveâ€ť sleeper. The air bed is able to address all of these issues because although it is still one bed, each side works independently from the other and gives each partner the ability to select the settings for the air mattress that they are most compatible with individually.
