One of the most common questions I get asked by my patients is “What kind of pillow would you recommend?”
Most of us don’t think too much about our choice of pillow unless we sleep badly or wake up with a stiff neck or back pain. Having the right pillow can make a big impact on your quality of sleep, your health and wellbeing. A good pillow should provide the correct amount of support for your head and neck in a neutral position, without applying any extra pressure on your spine. The wrong pillow may worsen your headaches, neck pain, and increase snoring.
Choosing the right pillow is a very important decision in achieving a good night's sleep. There is no single pillow that’s a perfect fit for everyone. We are all different shapes and sizes and have very different sleeping positions. And there are so many different pillow types, so where do you begin?
