Finding a proper fitting cervical pillow is important for your neck to maintain proper neutral alignment while you sleep. Neck pain and headaches can be caused or increased by having a head that is kept too high or too low while sleeping. This improper positioning over stretches the neck muscles and puts stress on the nerves and joints in the cervical spine. When proper neutral alignment is achieved during sleep along with spinal alignment with Chiropractic adjustments, the result is a relaxed and properly supported tissues in the neck which will result in a decrease in neck pain and headaches.
How to pick a proper pillow:
First let’s ask yourself a few questions:
I recommend to patients that they bring their pillow in during their regularly scheduled visit, so we can see if it’s properly supporting their neck and head. If you have any questions about whether or not your pillow is a good fit please call our office to schedule and evaluation at 860-415-9345.
Yours in Health,
Dr. Jennifer Welch, DC, DABCI
