Good Neck Support is essential for a Good Night’s sleep
The other thing which can cause painful problems is the type and shape of pillow you sleep on for 8 or so hours every night. If it does not support your neck properly you will often wake up with a stiff and sore neck.
The ‘right orthopaedic pillow’ to use is dependent on which position you normally sleep in. So you need to look for a pillow that will support you while you are sleeping in your preferred position. This should be contoured to ensure your neck has as much support as your head and that your spine stays neutral. The key is to find a pillow that is the correct height for you and has the right firmness to provide proper support.
