Neck Pain? It Might Be Your Pillow

By Genevieve Cunningham

Pain in the neck can be such a pain in the neck! We use our necks, quite literally, all day long. How? Through the simple act of holding up our heads. When this area of the body is suffering, it shows up every time we turn our heads -- to watch for cars, to answer a co-worker, to hold the phone with our shoulder. It's almost impossible to ignore the discomfort. For the most part, we simply suffer through the pain and wait for it to pass. But what if the solution to ending the pain were as simple as changing our pillow? If you suffer from neck pain, take a look at how your pillow may be the culprit, followed by some tips for feeling better now. 

How the Pillow Affects the Neck

Many people give very little thought to their pillows, but the pillow is what offers support to the head and neck throughout the night. If it's not supportive enough, the neck muscles are tense and strained all night long -- which might mean 10 or 12 hours of straining. This can make the neck incredibly sore and tired, which makes it more susceptible to injury that lasts for hours -- or days --  at a time. 

What Kind of Pillow Should I Get?

The best pillows are those that are both comfortable and supportive. This might vary from person to person, but most good pillows have a few things in common. It will definitely be soft, but not so soft that your head hits the bed. It will have some shape to it, and it wont be easily flattened or stuffed. If you're serious about a good pillow, ask your local chiropractor for advice. They may be able to point you to a special pillow that is designed for ultimate neck and head support, leaving you in much less pain and much more comfort.

Don't Forget Chiropractic Care, Too

While you're asking the chiropractor for advice about a pillow, it's probably a good idea to go ahead and get treatment. Regular care has been shown to significantly reduce neck pain and many other kinds of pain, too. Chiropractors use gentle manipulation to remove restrictions from the body, alleviate pain, and bring many other benefits as well. You really don't have to live with neck pain, and a trip to the chiropractor may prove it.
