How important is the right pillow?
If you struggle to enjoy a good night’s sleep then you’ll know that it’s not much fun at all. Poor sleep can lead to tiredness at work meaning less productivity and an overall decrease in energy and vitality. More serious is the fact that the body heals at night, so poor sleep can mean a deteriorating immune system…meaning simple illness can really drag on.
Neck pain and headaches are often the result of poor spinal health and posture and the way that you sleep is an important factor for the spine. An ergonomically correct pillow is clearly very important. Without it, you lessen the chances of a good night sleep and a poorly designed pillow can exacerbate posture problems.
The neck is made up from 7 delicate vertebrae (cervical) and the muscles and ligaments help the neck support the relatively heavy head. Forward head carriage, when the head jots forward of the shoulder line, is a common problem and one we see in our clinic often. Protecting the curve in the neck is vital to a strong a healthy neck, one that is free of pain and stiffness. A gentle neck curve protects the nerves that exit the spine in between each vertebrae.
To maintain and improve the neck curve we recommend the complete sleeprrr adjustable memory foam pillow. Why?
Your neck is unique and your pillow should be too. The complete sleeprrr pillow is fully adjustable so that you can change the depth of the pillow as well as the softness. Being so versatile means that you can help treat neck pain and headaches by adjusting your pillow to support the neck curve as well as the head. For people undergoing physiotherapy, osteopathy r chiropractic care, being able to change the pillow as the structure of the neck improves provides a great benefit, speeding up the return of the neck curve.
The investment in the complete sleeprrr pillow is relatively modest, less than £50. The pillow lasts for years so gives every owner brilliant value. For more details of the complete sleeprrr adjustable memory foam pillow take a look at our products page here .
