You spend one-third of your life in bed. Now think about how much time you spend snuggled up to your pillow and how important it is that you use one that’s right for you.
If you have neck or back pain, a chiropractic pillow might be a great choice. But what is a chiropractic pillow?
The pillow is shaped to support your neck properly so that when you rest your head on it, your spine stays in its natural shape. This position and pillow may help relieve neck pain which can be caused by a normal pillow that doesn’t support your neck. There is an indentation in the middle of the pillow so the top, bottom, and sides of it are higher than the center. Most chiropractic pillows are made for you to sleep on your back but they do have ones that are designed for sleeping on your side.
Although the material made to make the pillows differ from brand to brand, some are made of memory foam. Memory foam is a material that regulates your bodies temperature on hot or cold nights and it also provides support to your body. Other pillows are inflatable or filled with water which are lighter and more portable.
These pillows may reduce neck discomfort. Ask your doctor to recommend one for you if you need help.
