Chiropractic Pillow Provides Therapeutic Traction And Support
The Chiropractic Pillow is versatile with four way design which provides a therapeutic edge for any size, age, or body type. Each Chiropractic pillow has a narrow and wide therapeutic edge and a soft and medium center giving you four support options for a variety of firmness levels in one pillow. The Chiropractic pillow also provides therapeutic traction and support for the neck.
Only an evaluation by a health care professional like a Chiropractor can determine the source of your neck pain or stiffness. If there is no apparent injury involved like whiplash, a fall, or a sports trauma, and if other conditions like a tumor or infection have been ruled out, a major cause for chronic neck pain is poor posture and this is where the Chiropractic pillow can help.
Certain health problems that are often reported in association with abnormal postures include tension headaches, overuse syndromes, easy fatigability, decreased sports performance, and a decreased healing capacity after injury.
As a Chiropractor, I can tell you that relaxation of soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments) during sleep puts the neck at risk due to stress from poorly controlled movement and improper support. Improper sleeping posture represents a form of sustained stress, which can lead to problems with the neck muscles and spine. If you sleep on your stomach or on a pillow or stack of pillows that do not support the neck properly, this can place excessive pressure on muscles and ligaments when they are most vulnerable. To prevent neck instability, these soft tissues have to work harder all night and can be fatigued or irritated by morning.
Often, neck exercises and Chiropractic adjustments are recommended to build up neck stability, help heal ligaments, and restore motion to tight, stiff joints. In addition, the Chiropractic pillow can help protect your neck while you rest and sleep. Considering we spend about a third of our life sleeping, it is wise to make sure your sleeping posture is helping instead of hurting your neck.
Chiropractors often see results of neck injuries where patients may experience muscle spasms, neck pain, headaches, shoulder and neck pain, nausea, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, dizziness, concussion, limited neck motion, numbness, or reduced ability to hold the head erect. In these cases a comfort and support from the Chiropractic pillow can help through the healing process and allow more comfortable rest.
To use the gentle traction feature of the Chiropractic Pillow, position the firm edge under your head and touching your shoulders. Bend your knees and push upward slightly with your feet so the back of your head sinks into the middle section. Now straighten one leg, then the other. This action will pull the neck downward creating a mild traction as the head is held gently but firmly by the therapeutic foam edge. This results in a relaxation of the neck muscles and to aid in natural neck pain relief.
The Chiropractic pillow is available in Junior: for children and small-framed adults under 110 pounds (23″ x 15½” x 2.87″ and 3.75) – Standard: for average adults (23″ x15½” x 4.2″) and Extra: for larger adults over 180 pounds (23″ x 15½” x 5″).
We also carry the Chiropractic Travel Pillow which is a smaller version of the pillow for neck pain relief on the road. If you are considering the standard size, our Chiropractic Neck Pillow uses a memory foam therapeutic edge for added comfort and decreased break in time.
