One reason people choose an adjustable bed is for the relief from pain, particularly chronic pain in bed. Chronic pain and a bad nights’ sleep can be related unfortunately. A tired person suffering a lack of sleep is more sensitive to pain and tends to have a lower pain threshold.
Pain prevents us from falling to sleep. A lack of sleep causes an increase in pain, and an increase in pain causes a bad nights’ sleep. Electronic adjustable beds have been proven to help relieve pain in bed.
In 2006 a study from the Henry Ford Health Centre in Detroit USA confirmed the above. The sleep study found a bad nights’ sleep increased intensity of the sensation of pain.
In the study, a group of healthy, pain free subjects were woken at different hours and intervals during the night with researchers applying heat to their finger tips to test changes in sensitivity. Those in the study who slept all night were noticeably less sensitive to heat (pain) and were able to hold their finger on the heat probe for a longer amount of time at a higher temperature.
Pain that disturbs your sleep, either by waking you or forcing you to alter positions in bed for a better nights sleep affects the depth of your sleep and creates an even lower pain threshold, causing bad sleep and more pain in bed.
This viscous cycle must be stopped or at least reduced so a better nights’ sleep is possible, with alleviating the pain threshold and allowing deeper, more restful sleep.
The opposite of the above is by sleeping on the best bed that meets your needs. More time spent in the right bed, enjoying uninterrupted deep sleep leads to a higher tolerance to pain and an improvement in health. Biology teaches that the more robust, healthier and fitter one is the more adaptive they are to changes in their environment.
So shortened sleep increases pain, affects lifestyle and the ability to function at ones peak. Shortened sleep results in less pain tolerance; a lower pain tolerance leads to a less deep REM sleep. The less REM sleep we get the less we are able to repair and heal – the longer it will take to recover from surgery or illness. The statistics are alarming and the affecting on peoples health is concerning – the longer periods of convalescing, increased marital stress, less efficiency at work, less play time with the children, decreased vitality and an increased likelihood of depression or stress related disease.
The National Sleep Foundation’s list of the most common causes of sleep – interrupting pain are;
- Broad spectrum back pain
- TMJ derived facial pain
- Muscoskeletal pain
- Abdominal pain
Chronic pain also degrades your quality of sleep as your natural receptors are ‘awakened’ more easily as there is less REM deep restful sleep, therefore your quality of sleep is reduced with people waking exhausted as they have basically been in a ‘twilight state of sleep. A twilight sleep means your become hyper sensitive to different noises, lights and movement that would normal not affect a person who is pain free and enjoying better sleep. And the story goes on! difficulty falling asleep, waking in the night, waking too early, waking in pain and experience non restorative sleep.
