Many people suffer from neck pain that can affect their overall sleep quality. This can be due to various reasons, including work stress, injury and age-related problems. Some cases of neck pain may need medical attention, but most of them can be relieved by choosing the right neck support pillow that suits your sleeping preferences.
Which Pillow Type Can Relieve My Neck Pain?
Memory foam pillows: Memory foam is flexible, with a firm hold that softens when laid down on. Made from polyurethane, memory foam pillows can change shape under pressure and return to their original shape when the pressure is lifted. They are known for their contouring properties to the head and neck to provide support and pressure relief. They can also help with aligning your head and spine to a neutral position while reducing the chances of snoring. However, some people may find memory foam pillows too firm or too hot to sleep on.
Latex pillows: Pillows made from latex are a good choice for aching necks too as they provide a soft, smooth and bouncy touch. In other words, these pillows deliver an optimal balance of softness and firmness while conforming to your head and neck shape. Latex pillows are also breathable and hypoallergenic. Most of the latex pillows use synthetic latex due to cheaper production cost. To avoid synthetic latex chemicals, choose a 100% natural latex pillow.
Organic Pillows: Organic pillows are any pillows made from organic materials. The most common organic materials are latex, cotton, Kapok fibre, wool and buckwheat. Natural latex pillows are great as neck support pillows, as explained earlier, and so are pillows made from other organic materials. The only challenges for cotton, Kapok fibre, wool and buckwheat pillows are that they may not hold their shape well and may lack the firmness you prefer. The inconsistent support may worsen your current neck pain.
How to Choose the Right Pillow for Neck Pain
Consider the following factors when shopping for a pillow to relieve cervical pain:
Sleeping position: The way you sleep can have an impact on how well your spine, head and neck are aligned. A good pillow should keep your neck in a balanced position that is not too high or too low. The thickness and softness of your pillow may depend on whether you sleep on your side, back or stomach. Side sleepers usually need a softer, thicker pillow, while back and stomach sleepers may prefer thinner pillows to avoid neck pain.
Pillow size: The size of your pillow should allow your head and neck to move freely from one side to the other. A pillow that is too big or too small may make your head fall off or tilt, which can lead to neck pain. Different pillow brands may have different size measurements, so keep that in mind when you buy a new pillow.
Pillow material: You should choose a pillow material that matches your comfort and preference, as well as your hygiene and health requirements. A good pillow material should be supportive yet soft, durable yet breathable and easy to clean yet hypoallergenic. You should also check the certification and quality of the pillow material to make sure it is safe and eco-friendly.
