What are the Benefits of Cervical Pillows?

Cervical pillows are ergonomically designed to support your neck in a proper position while you sleep, cradling your head, neck, and shoulders. A cervical pillow holds your head and neck at the right angles when a person is in resting position. The angles and spacing between your body and the mattress vary whether you sleep on your back or side. Thus, it is necessary for cervical pillows to rise where the neck will be and compress where the head rests. Most cervical pillows are made with memory foam to accomodate the compressing and decompressing necessary to contour your neck. This provides optimal support and ergonomic comfort for a good night’s sleep. You can find a great selection of these cervical pillows here.

Different Types:

Cradle Pillows:

Neck Pillows:

Neck Pillows support the natural curve of your neck whether you are lying on your back or side. They usually come in different sizes accommodating various body types.

Comfort Pillows:

Comfort Pillows give you the more traditional experience of a pillow, while providing you with better ergonomic support.

How to Choose the Right Cervical Pillow for You?

Those who sleep on their sides benefit from side pillows, cervical rolls, and neck pillows. These pillows provide the sleeper with strong support in the space between their neck and mattress, keeping the spine straight and breathing passage aligned. This reduces any back pain or snoring that may be caused by traditional pillows.
Cradle pillows, neck pillows, and comfort pillows are the best for back sleepers. They are slightly thinner to accomodate the smaller space between the curve of the neck and mattress. Like the cervical pillows for side sleepers, they keep your breathing passage aligned and your spine straight for healthy ergonomic sleeping.

Neck Pillows come in different sizes. It is important for you to choose the correct size neck pillow depending on whether you are a back or side pillow. If you choose one that is either too small or two large, this will result in crooked alignment and discomfort. Please refer to the size chart below to identify the size the is right for you!
