Neck Problem? Not getting enough rest? May be it is your pillow. Well, If you are losing sleep, suffering headaches and uncomfortable neck pain from your pillow that is either too hard or too soft, you need to change it immediately. Wrong pillows not only impact the quality of your sleep, but also how healthfully you recharge and rest. They may also worsen neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, arm numbness, wheezing, sneezing, and discomfort. They can also exacerbate these problems and keep you from getting a good night’s sleep. And, if they are past their prime, they may contain mold, skin cells, dust mites, fungus, and mildew. So look for pillows that can meet your specific neck or back care needs, including your comfort needs. Here is a list of some of the best pillows for neck problems:
1. Therapeutic Pillows
These are one of the most popular pillows for neck problems. They are made up of high quality foam with a medium density. They have an upper back extension that flows smoothly into the head cradle and neck roll for back sleeping. In the case of side sleeping, you have proper contour and shoulder height to prevent shoulder or neck compression. The sides of these pillows are unstable, but they help with augmenting blood flow along with stabilization of muscles, that can also help with your neck pain.
2. Posture Med Contour Memory Foam Pillows
These pillows are considered as one of the most effective pillows for neck problems. They are made up of high quality, non-molded memory foam with different properties for the bottom and top or base. The foam used in these pillows is extremely soft and also very accommodating for your neck pain. Since they are not molded, they are less temperature reactive and more breathable as compared to other conventional memory foam pillows. They also give you a choice of four, and five inch height contours or lobes and each has its own shape. Since these pillows are accommodating, they easily compress to your height based on the weight of your head, whether you are sleeping on your back or side.
