Pillows That Relieve Chronic Pain

Introduction:Pillows are holistic. The correct pillow can benefit your total body. Whether you're seeking comfort and support or trying to eliminate back or neck pain, you deserve a good pillow.

  • 01

    Body Pillow

    Body pillows are roughly the length of the body. You can lie against it for spinal support or prop it against the headboard and lean against the body pillow as you read in bed. Chiropractors recommend using body pillows to patients in chronic pain.

    If you're a side-sleeper, use the top portion to support your neck and head and the bottom portion to support your knees and legs. It is suggested that one should not lie on their side and wrap their top leg over the body pillow. This position will twist your spine and put pressure on your back muscles and spine.

    Pregnant women typically find the body pillow their best friend since it supports their increasing stomach. Pregnancy pillows are specialized to accommodate comfortable side-sleeping.

    Body pillows are stuffed with a wide range of materials from memory foam to down. Look for body pillows with washable covers because washing the entire pillow will squash it out of shape.

  • 02

    Knee Pillow

    You'll adore your orthopedic knee pillow as it helps relieve lower back tension and hip or knee pain while you're sleeping. Side-sleepers should position the knee pillow between both knees to keep them separate, which will reduce strain on the hipbones.

    Back-sleepers should place the knee pillow underneath the backs of knees to help reduce pressure and strain on the lower back. Doctors often recommend using the knee pillow post-surgery.

    Knee pillows are shaped like an hourglass or rectangle. Some have hinges that open up in the middle and allows the pillow to lay flat on your bed to use to elevate your legs and/or for neck and head support. These are practical for both back and side-sleepers.

  • 03

    Travel Pillow

    These little guys are shaped like a "U" to fit securely around the head and neck so that the sleepy traveler can support his/her head. Travel pillows support the weight of the head and keep it from twisting too far to the right or left side.

    Travel pillows are perfect for automobile, airplane or bus travel as they are travel-sized. You may be familiar with the airplane pillow. Inflatable travel pillows are popular since when they are deflated, they fit in a purse or carry-on bag effortlessly.

  • 04

    Donut Pillow Cushion

    The cute cushion shaped like a donut, complete with a hole in the middle, is commonly used by people who recovering from a bruised or broken tailbone and/or hemorrhoids.

    Post-pregnancy, some women suffer from coccyx pain. The donut pillow cushion will take the pressure off of the tailbone area and allow a certain measure of comfort when sitting.

    In addition, the donut pillow stimulates circulation in the buttock area, to promote healing.

  • 05

    Neck Pillow

    Neck pillows a.k.a. orthopedic and/or cervical pillows are made with a deeper depression in the head area and extra neck support to help relieve neck and shoulder pain.

    Commonly neck pain is caused when your neck is bent or twisted too far in one direction for a long time. If your pillow fails to support your head and neck in the correct position, you'll wake up in pain.

    There are several neck pillow options:

    Feather pillows: If you're not allergic, you can mold a feather pillow to fit your head shape.

    Orthopedic pillows: designed to sustain your natural neck curve.

    Cervical pillows: Maintain your natural head and neck shape to relieve neck pain and stress. Cervical pillows are roll-shaped.
    Water-filled pillows: Perhaps best of all because water redistributes weight correctly. For firmer support add more water to the pillow.
