Cervical Neck Pillows
Most people usually blame their mattresses when they wake up with pain and stiffness in their neck and back. If you are waking up uncomfortably in the morning, it might be worth checking out cervical neck pillows as an option. While you sleep, the correct position must be that of a perfect horizontal alignment of the vertebral column with the head so that the cervical line is neither too low nor too high in relation to the axis. The cushion must support and adapt to the weight of the head. Cervical neck pillows can help give you the right support and alignment while you sleep.
Conditions they can help with:
- Poor posture
- Tension headaches
- Stiff neck
- Neck strains
- Military neck (also known as flat neck syndrome or cervical kyphosis)
- Cervical spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
- Sleep apnea
- Difficulty sleeping
Benefits of using a Cervical Pillow:
- Offer support while you sleep
- Help the alignment of the body
- Help to maintain the cervical curve
- Loosen tension in the neck and back
- You wake up rested
