Does Your Pillow Cause You Neck Pain?
Sleeping well is one of the best things you can do for your body. It is the body’s time to reboot,
regenerate and rejuvenate. However, when you wake up with that crick in your neck, it takes away
from the refreshing effect of a well-rested night.
Why can your neck hurt after a night’s sleep in your bed?
The culprit, more often than not, is your fluffy inviting pillow.
While you can’t control your sleeping position during the night, your choice of pillow can ensure
your neck is taken care of during the night.
The natural curve of your neck needs to be supported during sleep, and when it isn’t, your neck gets
into awkward positions causing the muscles to sprain, resulting in that all too familiar stiff neck in
When shopping for a pillow, feather or memory foam ones tend to take the natural shape of your
neck. Avoid pillows that are too stiff or too high.
Our tip: Try sleeping on your back but with the correct pillow. Sleeping on your stomach causes your
spine to arch unnaturally and your neck to twist to one side.
