At The Spine Institute Center for Spinal Restoration, we know that neck and back pain can sometimes occur after sleeping on a lumpy, poorly shaped pillow. Investing in a product that is specially designed to provide spinal support can help eliminate the discomfort and stiffness that results from resting on a non-supportive pillow. Several different manufacturers offer product lines that are designed to offer optimal support of the neck and spine and are listed below:
offers a pillow, the Beyond Down Side Sleeper that is reinforced and filled with gel fibers that keep their shape and resist becoming separated and uneven. It is machine-washable and hypoallergenic.
memory foam cervical/neck pillow provides firm support and an elevated curve at the neck that is constructed in a way to keep the spine in proper alignment. The pillow comes with a zippered, removable terry cloth cover.
Cervical Traction Neck Pillow is firm and has a unique shape that allows the spine to retain its natural position. Its orthopedic design may help to reduce stiffness and snoring.
Core 200 Pillow is manufactured by Core Products and features an innovative, trapezoid form that cradles the neck and provides options for smaller and larger individuals. It is comprised of Fortrel fiber and can be covered with any standard pillowcase.
Four Position Support Pillow is comprised of an inner core of resilient base foam and a top layer of less dense memory foam. It has a half-cylindrical shape that offers cervical support and keeps the spine in proper alignment.
has a Contour Memory Foam Pillow that is designed to encourage relaxation of the shoulder and cervical muscles and prevent pain and stiffness in the neck and upper body. It is constructed of SureTemp memory foam that allows air to flow through the fibers so that the pillow does not become too hot and disturb sleep.
