Questions & Answers
Can You Use A Tens Machine For A Sore Neck?A tens machine can help a sore neck by blocking pain signals which result in soreness. Small electrodes attached to the tens machine can adhere to the skin on the back of the neck over sore areas. By using the controls on the tens unit, you can find the right combination to alleviate a sore neck. You can use a good heating pad placed around the neck and over the electrodes to increase the benefits.
You can use a tens machine to increase the production of the body's natural pain relieving chemicals in the brain, which would be good for a sore neck. Therapy with a tens machine can improve neck muscle strength and has been shown to help with arthritis pain from disc degeneration, which can cause a sore neck.
Are Water Pillows Good?Water pillows are good because they react to changing positions during sleep. This helps maintain correct posture in the back and side sleeping position. There are 2 types of water pillows: 1) A Basic Water Pillow 2) A Water Pillow With Extra Neck Support. They are both good water pillows, quite comfortable and easily adjustable.
Water pillows are not good if you do not like heavy pillows. Some people like a pillow that stays in place, however, they can be quite heavy to maneuver. While not difficult, you also need to fill it with water, which can be a little messy and heavy. There is some noise, however, this is minimal. To get the same effect of water pillows without the weight and mess, try the Inflatable Pillows, which are lightweight, adjustable for firmness, height and shape.
What Pillow Does The Doctor Use?I get this question asked all the time. It really doesn't matter which I uses, as everyone is different. But, the one I use is the Posture Med Pillow. With this pillow, I wake up with a stiff neck less than the other pillows I have used, and I have used them all.
Why is the Posture Med Pillow so good? Well, it is good for sensitive necks, recent injuries and flare-ups of chronic conditions like osteoarthritis. The pillow combines 2 different densities of open cell (posturecell) memory foam which work together to form a reactive pillow that is soft and comfortable, yet supportive. While it may look like an ordinary cervical pillow, the high quality foam, which is made in the USA, makes a big difference. It is not a typical molded memory foam pillow that has a skin, produces a lot of heat and reacts completely different.
What Is The Best Pillow For TMJ Problems?When there is pain, muscle spasm and inflammation from tmj, there are pillows that can help. The best pillow for tmj problems will offer a soft, yet supportive surface. A firm pillow can place direct pressure on the tmj, causing an increase in symptoms and making sleeping difficult. Most people sleep on their back and sides. For those who are strictly side sleepers, the side sleeping pillow is the best pillow for tmj problems, providing a soft memory foam surface and the correct height for side sleeping.
For those who sleep on both their side and back, the best pillow for tmj problems is Posture Med Pillow, which offers a soft sleeping surface of 2 different memory foam densities, having support for the neck to minimize muscle tension. Many individuals find this a very comforting pillow for tmj problems. While somewhat firmer, the therapeutic pillow has a recessed area in the side portions to relieve tmj pressure. With this type of pillow, you must be able to change positions in a conscious manner.
