When sufficient blood flow doesn't reach every part of your body, you may experience loss of feeling, stiffness, pain, or limbs that fall asleep. There are many causes of poor circulation. Some causes are as simple as clothing that's too tight or an unhealthy sleeping posture. There are, however, some serious health problems that can cause poor circulation or arise as a result of it.
If you're experiencing problems with circulation, we encourage you to speak with your doctor and get their opinion about the best treatment for your condition. If their recommendation is to try a new bed then we can help you choose the best mattress for poor circulation. Adjustable bases have also proven effective at improving circulation and sleep posture. If you have any questions about whether an adjustable base is right for you, let us know.
Pressure can block blood from properly flowing to areas of the body. In order to prevent this, pressure reduction can be one of the first solutions to relieve symptoms and improve blood flow. Softer mattresses are usually better suited for this, as they tend to cushion the body and distribute pressure more evenly. Firm mattresses well-suited to your body and sleeping style may work. But firmer mattresses have a higher chance of creating high-pressure areas than can hinder circulation.
At the very least, you'll want to see some pressure-relieving comfort layers near the top of the mattress, such as memory foam or latex. The mattress should have some regardless of the Comfort Scale rating of that model.
