pillow for sleeping

Do we need a pillow when sleeping?

Yes. It is necessary to sleep on a pillow, especially for those with cervical vertebra problems, if you do not sleep on a pillow for a long time, it will aggravate the cervical vertebra problem. This is mainly due to the physiological curve of our neck, and the purpose of the pillow is to maintain this curvature. Of course, if the pillow is not suitable or used improperly, it will cause discomfort. The accurate position of the pillow should be on the neck and support your head.

How to choose the height of the pillow

Pillows are mainly divided into high pillows and low pillows. The choice of height is affected by sleeping position, personal habits, shoulder width and weight. There is no precise height, the goal is to maintaining the normal cervical vertebra physiological curve. After all, most pillow materials are elastic or height-adjustable, with a range of height adaptations.

  • If you prefer to sleep on your stomach, it is recommended to consider a flat and soft low pillow;
  • If you prefer to sleep on your back, it is recommended to consider a well-supported low pillow;
  • If you prefer to sleep on your side, it is recommended to consider a well-supported high pillow;
  • If your sleeping position is not fixed, it is recommended to consider a soft wavy pillow;
