Healthy Neck: How to Find the Perfect Pillow

By Genevieve Cunningham

Suffering from a crick in the neck is one of the worst feelings. You can't get up, move, turn your head, or do anything else without severe discomfort. While not all neck pain can be avoided, a very common cause of neck pain can be nipped in the bud quite easily. What is it? Your pillow! If you're ready to end the neck pain and wake up feeling refreshed and healthy, take a look at these tips for choosing the perfect pillow -- plus a bonus tip for maintaining good health for the rest of your life.

You'll Want It to Be Soft

Pillows are supposed to be soft. It's supposed to feel good when you finally lay your head down at night. Test your pillow for softness. Does your head sink gently into it? Or does it feel stiff and unfriendly? Get a pillow that allows your neck muscles to fully relax, and you'll feel much better by morning. 

You'll Also Want Support

It's true that you'll want a soft pillow, but if it's too soft, you might lose support. Your pillow is supposed to gently cradle the head. If your head sinks to the mattress, the pillow isn't offering enough support. Support helps prevent additional strain on the neck, which in the long run, means less pain and longer lasting comfort.

You'll Want It to Last

It's tempting to buy the cheapest, quickest, easiest pillow you see, but try to restrain yourself from doing this. The truth is that you want your pillow to last. You don't want to have the perfect pillow for a whole week -- and then a flat, uncomfortable, unsupportive mess after that. This might mean you're spending a little more upfront, but since the pillow is more likely to last for a while, you'll be saving money (and your health) in the long run. 

Chiropractic Care Can Also Help the Neck

Another great way to keep your neck healthy and pain-free is by seeing the chiropractor on a regular basis. Chiropractors work to keep the entire spine healthy, neck and all. They use gentle manipulation to remove joint restrictions, and when this is done, it reduces pain and restores function to the body. If you want relief that lasts and a healthier neck no matter your sleeping conditions, chiropractic care is the perfect place to start.
