When you think of foam wedges, do you ever think of cushions? Medical wedges may come to mind to those that elevate their legs to improve blood circulation. However, did you know you could get a wedge for your mattress? Many people stay up at night suffering from heartburn due to lying flat on a traditional mattress. Certain medical conditions such as this lend to improve with gravity by having the head elevated preventing the acid from coming back up irritating the esophagus. Relief can be found by simply adding a foam wedge pillow that works with gravity to prevent such medical problems. Below we’ll compare both regular foam wedges and bed wedges to show the advantages of each.
If you’re not getting a great night’s sleep or your mattress is starting to get old, and you’re not ready to replace it, consider adding a mattress topper to your existing sleep set-up. Mattress toppers are a great way to preserve an existing mattress, improve your quality of sleep, and add an extra layer of cushion for bone and joint support. This also can be good if you have a friend or family member staying the night too.
If you’re not getting a good night’s rest, or you’re waking up several times during the night to adjust your sleeping position, it may not be your mattress. It may be the pillows you’re sleeping with! Instead of a flat pillow, consider investing in a wedge-shaped pillow for a more restful sleep.
