    • Help My Neck Hurts Considerations when choosing a pillow if you have neck pain
    • What you need to consider when choosing a pillow to prevent or relieve neck pain • Neck pain, or cervical spine pain, is very common • According to survey reports, about 10-15% of people are suffering from it around the globe. • If you are a sufferer of neck pain, you know that it can be absolutely miserable and affect your life in many ways. • As you know that prevention is always better than a cure, and different kinds of pillows can help to prevent or to decrease the severity of neck discomfort. • The wrong pillow can also cause or aggravate pain in the neck, so it’s important to find the right one for you.
    • These are some of the things you need to consider when looking for a pillow to help you with cervical spine pain relief: • • • • Proper angle Proper Pressure Proper Softness Proper Stiffness
    • Proper angle • Depending on the shape and height, different pillows will give a specific angle to your spine which in turn helps in neck pain relief. • Neck pain can be caused by an improper angle so it’s important to find a pillow that can help you to achieve the perfect posture alignment during sleep.
    • Proper Pressure • Due to the type of material a pillow is filled with, your neck experiences a specific amount of pressure. • This pressure can be a positive as it helps to retain the original angle of spine as well as provide a relaxing media for muscular relaxation. • Too much or too little pressure can make your pain worse.
    • Proper Softness • The orthopedic pillows are filled up with a specific material that allows you to sleep in a comfortable manner. • You can select the type of material as many types, such as feather pillows, water pillows, etc. are available for your comfort. • Again, you need the correct amount of softness to suit you – too soft or too hard will just cause you pain.
    • Proper Stiffness • Pillows without enough support may also harm your spine. • A proper pressure is therefore required to bring harmony back to your neck muscles.
    • To Sum it up • A properly designed pillow can give you some badly needed relief from your neck pain. • The key is to choose a pillow with the appropriate attributes to fit your needs.
