Avoid Neck Pain with a Memory Foam PillowNeck pain is a common complaint among adults; however, few people realize how much the pillow they are using plays a role in this problem. There are many factors that contribute to neck pain, but using the wrong kind of pillow is one of the biggest issues. Quality bed pillows are a critical part of keeping the spine and neck supported during sleep. Without proper support, you may begin to experience neck pain.

Choose a Bed Pillow Based on Your Sleeping Position

Choosing the right bed pillow is important and is based on factors such as sleep position and comfort. The key is to find a pillow that is comfortable for you and maintains your spine in a straight line. Side sleepers should look for relatively soft and flat pillows that keep the neck in a neutral position. They should also consider using a body pillow, knee pillow, or foam sleep aids. Back sleepers do better with a rounded pillow that supports the natural curve of the neck.

A Quality Pillow Will Maintain the Spine in a Neutral Position

No matter what your sleep position, it is important to avoid bed pillows that are too high or stiff as they are likely to keep the neck in a flexed position, which can result in pain or stiffness. The neck should be in a neutral position during sleep to maintain proper spinal alignment. A good pillow supports the neck in this ideal position so that the muscles can relax.

Foam Pillows Provide Optimal Support

The material a pillow is made out of is important to consider. People who suffer from neck pain often benefit from a foam pillow because they conform to the shape of the neck and head. This cradles the head and neck in the important neutral position. A foam pillow provides the support needed without being too stiff.
