Mosaic Weighted Blankets just issued a new press release focused on Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). We have received so many customer testimonials about how a weighted blanket has truly helped ease uncomfortable RLS symptoms for people…so we did some additional research and thought we’d pass along some therapy suggestions from experts, RLS patients and occupational therapists. Take the list and discuss with your doctor. There are also a lot of great resources online focused on restless legs remedies.
Here is our press release:
Restless Legs Remedies - Symptom Reduction is Possible
About 10% of the population is thought to suffer from Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). Changes in lifestyle, as well as the use of pressure stimulation on the legs, such as through a weighted blanket from Mosaic Weighted Blankets, can help reduce leg pain at night.
Stretching, pressure therapy and massage are just a few RLS patient favorites for reducing the disorder’s symptoms. Weighted blankets (think of a blanket with dozens of little bean bag-like squares sewn across its length, hugging your legs, like a massage, with your every move) have also been found to be effective with many people in improving their sleep. RLS is a tricky disorder as everyone experiences symptoms a bit differently. So what exactly is RLS? What are the causes of restless legs syndrome, and what are some therapies that can help people suffering from the disorder?
Read the press release in its entirety here.
For more information about Restless Legs Syndrome, including recent research and a helpful patient support forum, check out the RLS website. They have a downloadable sleep journal as well as a self-diagnostic tool to help you determine if your symptoms could be due to RLS. Note that RLS is now referred to as Willis-Ekborn Disease.
