Scoliosis and Sleep Number beds
Has anyone developed scoliosis after purchasing a Sleep Number bed?……or has anyone’s scoliosis gotten worse after they purchased a Sleep Number bed? I have had a very “mild” case of scoliosis for years and a 3 years ago I purchased such a bed. I was told if I sleep on my side to use a low inflation number…..and I’ve been using it somewhere between 30 to 45. When I first bought the bed, because I’ve had a back since 1963 ( I am now 81). I was using it in high numbers, maybe 70-90. Then when I was talking with a sales person at the store, he recommended the lower number. Now my scoliosis is much worse, and my back tires easily. No one has ever “measured” the degrees,but now my right hip sticks way out to the side. Fortunately I seem to have a high threshold for pain so this issue along with my myotonic dystrophy type 2, I tired readily but essentially have little or no pain. @gailfaith

…wondering if you received suggestions.
I have scoliosis, osteoporosis, and arthritis in my spine.
Since sleeping on a sleep number bed for years, I have recently been diagnosed with levoscoliosis. I can only assume that it is due to the sagging of my sleep number bed. It is not fun living in pain!
