As we age our body goes through many changes. Part of it is just the natural process of aging. Other consequences stem from the things we do during our younger years. One example of natural aging and living a full life in your younger years is likely poor circulation. Proper blood circulation is required for your body’s health. If your blood doesn’t flow freely, you could experience a variety of problems from edema and numbness in your feet to dizzy spells and then potentially more serious issues.
Arthritis and joint pain is a very common problem for many people. Approximately 350 million people worldwide experience some form of pain from it by the time they are 65. It is a chronic pain, that may become worse at times and better at others. Pain relievers can help to reduce it sometimes, but often you may need to make lifestyle changes assist your pain management.
Your doctor will likely talk to you about some of these changes. They may include tips and tricks for preventing flares or triggers. One of the main triggers to avoid is going to be poor sleep. At night, you need to be comfortable and avoid old mattresses that may cause pressure on your joints. Joint pain and all types of arthritis go hand in hand with insomnia, which has proven to escalate pain.

According to research conducted by Sciencedirect on randomly selected male and female subjects who were experiencing some form of musculoskeletal pain, there was a significant pain reduction in those who slept on enhanced/adjustable beds.
