Neck Relief Pillow Can Help Relax Sore Neck Muscles & Restore A Healthy Cervical Spine Posture
Are you one of those people who gets a stiff neck? Maybe pain or muscle spasms? If you suffer from any problems with your neck, back or you get headaches, then it is all likely to be related to your cervical spine and that’s what makes the neck relief pillow special.
We spend our lives these days stooped over a desk, or the laptop on our knees. This often means that our neck is not in the correct position for long periods of time, and this can cause physical stress on the discs, joints and muscles. This is what causes the pain in most cases. So how do you resolve the problem?
There are numerous ways, one of them being massage, but that is only a short term solution. You need to change something in your life that has a permanent effect on the posture of your neck. As part of the solution, an ergonomically designed therapy pillow for postural relief is a great tool to help.
Unlike a normal pillow, which usually collapses flat, and will put strain on your neck while you sleep, the cervical traction pillow is designed to hold your neck in its natural shape and you use it while you are awake. The design of the pillow means that it eases your neck into the correct position anatomically.
How Is It Used?
You first need to support the pillow, and this means placing it on a flat surface, such as the floor, and pushing it up against the wall, or some other object. You then lie down, placing your head between the lobes of the pillow. You will find that your head and neck fit snugly into the contours.
How Long Do You Use It For?
You only need to use the neck relief pillow for a few minutes every day, although if you feel comfortable in it, you can stay for longer, as it will only do you good. The pillow is perfectly safe to use. It provides a mild traction effect with your neck in the optimal posture. Relaxing into the pillow along with this traction effect produces a very soothing experience that your neck will love.
If you have any problems with you neck at all, then using this pillow for even a short time will help you not only improve your posture, but it will also help the muscles in the area of your neck relax more when they are in their correct position, and can help in making you pain and headache free. As the muscles relax, the effects can provide a nice therapeutic treatment for the ligaments, joints and discs.
