Therapeutica: Caring for Your Spine While You Sleep

Friday, 1 September 2017

How many hours a night do you sleep? Sleep experts suggest that the average adult receives around seven to eight hours of quality sleep each night, but improper positioning or uncomfortable pillows can severely hinder this for you.

However, this doesn't have to be the case. Industry experts Therapeutica have spent over two decades perfecting approaches to ergonomic rest. Read on to learn about their quality back supports and how they can align your health and comfort alike.

Who Are Therapeutica?

Therapeutia's roots stretch back over twenty years, taking us to Toronto in Ontario, Canada, where award-winning ergonomic designer Ed Keilhauer suddenly found himself suffering from debilitating neck problems. Seeking the advice of a chiropractor, he quickly learned that poor sleep posture was the likely cause of his problem.

Although Keilhauer was disappointed to learn that there was at that time no existing cure, he was not discouraged from finding a solution to easing his neck pain. It was not long before the designer had invented and refined a superior non-toxic and environmentally friendly foam, patenting the design in 1995. This led to the founding of Therapeutica, and they have since then provided countless sleepers with healthy and pain-free rest.

What Causes Back Pain While I Sleep?

Back pain can be caused a number of reasons, and, if you've not taken a fall recently or had any medical conditions that could have affected your back health, then it is likely that poor posture could be causing your back pain. We are often conscious of our posture while we are standing up or sitting down, but what about our posture while we sleep? With an average of eight hours a night spent in bed, it is important to be mindful of posture while we enjoy a night of rest.

If you are positioned incorrectly at night, even if it does not feel particularly uncomfortable, the support you receive can be inadequate and this can result in added pressure on the muscles and nerves. Even when you've consciously acknowledged that you may be sleeping at an awkward position, however, the thought of trying to change the way you sleep may appear daunting. If you've slept on your front your whole life, could you suddenly begin sleeping on your back, or vice versa? Thankfully, Therapeutica, with back pain caused by poor posture at the forefront of their ethos, devised a range of spinal alignment pillows that can help you achieve comfortable alignment without disturbing your natural sleep.

Who Can Benefit from Therapeutica's Pillows and Supports?

Therapeutica pillows and supports have helped individuals, chiropractors, therapists, and healthcare professionals all over the world. Their products are manufactured from open cell custom blended foam unique to their range. As their pillows and supports are non allergenic and free from toxins, they are vastly suitable for use both at home and in professional healthcare and therapeutic environments.

To ensure the pillows and supports are of the best possible quality, they are produced in-house in Toronto and are then put to the test with a rigorous quality control process. This includes four independent verifications of product quality, ensuring that their products remain resilient and supportive no matter where they're used.

Neck Support and Spine Alignment While You Sleep

If you are looking for a neck support pillow, then the Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow may be the one for you. It is ideal for all sleeping positions, including back sleeping and side sleeping, and helps to provide optimal spinal alignment and comfort while you sleep.

Chiropractic and Orthopaedic Pillow Support

While the Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow is ideal for independent use at home to help with neck and shoulder pain, it is also a practical solution to providing a supportive neck pillow in therapeutic centres and care environments. It was designed with the support of a chiropractic doctor to provide comfortable contours and cervical support to ensure patients and clients can be as comfortable as possible during treatments.

Supportive Pillows for Commuting and Travel

Even when we do take the time to consider our sleeping postures at home, it can be easy to push those thoughts to one side when travelling or on holiday. However, this does not need to be the case, as Therapeutica have also designed pillows specially constructed for commuting and travel.

The Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Travel Sleeping Pillow, for example, features the same benefits as the standard size, but has been designed to fit conveniently inside most suitcases and luggage. It is an ideal alternative to hotel pillows and bedding while you travel, ensuring you can still receive that enhanced comfort and postural alignment you enjoy at home, no matter where you are in the world.

How to Properly Measure Yourself for Sleeping Pillows

While the Therapeutica pillows for neck, shoulder, and back pain can provide you with optimal comfort and alignment, it will be important to ensure that you purchase the correct size for the best possible support.
