Our Best Pillows for Neck Pain 2020

Friday, 17 January 2020

Some studies claim that over 50% of people over the age of 50 suffer from neck pain. Ranging from a mild inconvenience to a debilitating condition, neck pain is something that can affect anyone. Occasionally there is a more serious cause for neck pain, but generally it can be treated through rest, exercise and a change in your daily routine.

One change in routine can be your sleeping habit. A comfortable pillow can work wonders in treating neck and back pain, which is why there are a plethora of extra comfy pillows out there to give you a good night's sleep with a pain free neck the following morning. To help you find the neck pillow for you, we've created this short article presenting Our Best Pillows for Neck Pain.

Why Do I Have Neck Pain?

Neck pain can be caused by a wide range of different things. As the role of the neck is to support your head and allow for motion, it is prone to inflammation and abnormalities that can lead to prolonged pain. Sometimes these are caused by bad posture and overuse, and other times from injuries such as a fall, contact sports or whiplash.

Usually neck pain isn't serious, but if you have severe, ongoing neck pain that has lasted for over a week, we would recommend seeing a doctor. If not, and if you just want the aching to go away, or if you want a sound night's sleep but can't because of stiffness, try using one of our pillows for neck pain.

Best Pillows for Sleeping with Neck Pain

Harley Contour Neck Support Pillow for Neck Pain

Harley Contour Neck Support Pillow for Neck PainThe first of our two best pillows for sleeping with neck pain is the Harley Contour Neck Support Pillow for Neck Pain, which works by moulding around the neck while you sleep. Available in five different sizes to ensure that your precise measurements are met, the liquid foam eases your neck through a deep sleep while providing enough support that it doesn't rest in an unnatural position. It is really recommended for sleeping on your side, boasting to be one of the best pillows for side sleepers available.

Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Orthopedic Pillow for Neck Pain

Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Orthopedic Pillow for Neck PainA leading cause of a bad neck is bad posture, which can be corrected through something called spinal alignment. The Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Orthopedic Pillow for Neck Pain is highly recommended if you struggle with posture, as it holds your body and neck in such a way that your spine is placed into a natural position. This not only ensures that you don't have a stiff neck in the morning, but it allows your neck to recover from any inflammation and bruising that may have occurred because of posture.

The Drive Medical U-Shaped Travel Pillow is ergonomically shaped to support the neck and head, helping to ease sore muscle and relieve tension, while using viscoelastic foam that contours to the neck for maximum support.

Help Ease Your Neck Pain and Sleep Better

More often than not, the cause of a bad night's sleep is a stiff neck that's been held out of position. Choosing the right pillow can let you sleep soundly, and wake up feeling refreshed and pain free.
