How the Therapeutica Sleeping Pillow Can Help Side Sleepers

Thursday, 7 September 2017

It is recommended that the average adult receives between seven and nine hours of sleep every night. However, even if this is achieved, the quality of sleep may be hindered due to poor posture. If you sleep on your side and find yourself awaking every morning with back pain, you may already be considering trying to train yourself to change the position in which you sleep. However, this doesn't need to be the case.

The Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow has been specially designed to help you achieve a more peaceful sleep by improving your posture with correct alignment of your spine. Not only does it reduce back pain, but it is also ideal regardless of whether you sleep on your side or your back. Read on to find out how the Therapeutica Sleeping Pillow can help you to reduce aches and pains in your back caused by poor posture, helping you to gain a better quality of sleep.

Who Are Therapeutica?

The name Therapeutica alone connotes quality and reliability of postural care. For over twenty years they have moulded, shaped, and perfected approaches to spinal alignment, and now provide a range of pillows, seat rests, and travel comfort to ensure your back can receive the best possible care while you rest.

What Causes Back Pain During the Night?

Back pain can be caused while you sleep as a result of poor or incorrect posture. This can result in added pressure on the muscles and nerves, which can manifest as back pain when you awake in the morning.

While it may be reasonable to think that changing the position in which you sleep, whether from side sleeping to back sleeping and vice versa, can help to reduce back pain, this does not necessarily mean you will achieve correct postural alignment. However, with the Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow, you can find a comfortable and pain-relieving spinal alignment without having to alter your position at night.

How Can the Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow Help Side Sleepers?

If you sleep on your side, the Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow from Therapeutica can provide you with optimal comfort and support while you rest. As well as helping you to correctly align your spine during the night, it also offers the following features and related benefits:

  • Curved edging: The curved top edge of the pillow provides room for your shoulders, while also reducing compression. This is ideal for anybody who finds that they can never quite position their arms comfortably due to their shoulders being bunched up in front of the pillow.
  • Raised side profile: In addition to making room for your shoulders to rest comfortably, the pillow also accommodates shoulder height. This is done through the use of a raised side section, providing a pillow that is not only comfortable to lie on but expertly shaped to fit around you.
  • Sloped panel: With a sloped panel, the pillow helps to stabilise your shoulders. This will keep them resting comfortably while also preventing you from lying in any uncomfortable positions.
  • Contoured headrest: The contoured shape of the headrest keeps your head and neck level. Not only will this improve your comfort, but it will also work to prevent against the occurrence of neck pain.
  • Flexible side panels: The Sleeping Pillow provides flexible cushioning through the use of side cavities. This enables side sleeping that is free from pressure, further improving your comfort.
