What is a Chiropractic pillow?

Answer: A chiropractic pillow is specially made to provide extra support.

If you spend at least 8 hours asleep each night, that is a third of your life, lying on your bed, with your head on your pillow. Keeping this in mind, the pillow you choose could have enormous consequences, positive or negative. If you have back or neck pain, you may benefit from switching to a chiropractic pillow.

What is a Chiropractic Pillow?

A chiropractic pillow is a specialized pillow that is shaped in a way so as to provide additional support to the neck. This cervical pillow helps for your spine to maintain its anatomically correct shape and positioning while you sleep. Keeping your neck in the correct position allows your muscles and nerves to properly relax, meaning less tension, less inflammation, and less pain.

Anatomical pillows are usually designed for sleeping on your back. There are some available for those who must sleep on their sides as well.

Who Are Chiropractic Pillows Right For?

Chiropractic pillows are highly recommended for those who suffer from chronic back or neck pain. People who suffer from tension headaches may also benefit from a chiropractic pillow. If you have been in an accident and had whiplash or other soft tissue injury, a chiropractic pillow from your Langley Chiropractor may also be recommended.

Chiropractic pillows are not an immediate solution, but will reduce pain and discomfort after prolonged, regular and proper use of about a month. If you are suffering from back or neck pain, talk to your Langley Chiropractor such as Benefit Chiro to learn more about chiropractic pillows and if they are right for you.
