An exceptionally useful pillow that has multiple functions due to the special orthopedic design and style. As a body pillow, it provides comfort and support. It provides warmth that many stomach sleepers need and helps transition from stomach to side sleeping in stages. It provides a sense of soothing security and well being. The function helps alleviate stress on the neck and back by the promotion of side sleeping and also helps to relieve shoulder pain while sleeping.

The Problem:

Due to neck and back pain that stomach sleeping causes by twisting the neck and hyper-extending the back, especially with a soft mattress, a common request is a solution for this bad posture habit when sleeping. Many have tried a pillow that is too big and heavy or uses fiber that flattens, resulting in frustration and disappointment. Many have also used leg spacers, small blocks of foam between the legs, but they are difficult to maneuver and slip out easily during the night.

Sleeping on your stomach without a special pillow causes sleeping in full head rotation for long periods. This can cause jaw joint problems, strain of neck muscles, damage to neck joints, and nerve pinching in the neck, which can cause waking up with a neck stiffness, tension and neck related headaches and long term neck problems.

The Solution:

Transitioning From Stomach Sleeping Using The Orthopedic Body Pillow

With 2 options for placement, you can experiment with the teardrop wedge pointing both in and out to help to find your unique comfort position. To begin, a sleep position with the pillow pointed in results in good spinal alignment. This is a transition for stomach sleepers and you can start in this position. Eventually, you want the pointed wedge facing away, which results in the best spinal alignment.

Benefits Of The Orthopedic Body Pillow

The teardrop design and shape shape provides a sleek, yet supportive design option to large, flimsy and hard to control body pillows. When you have transitioned from stomach to the full side sleeping position, or if you just need a good therapeutic body pillow, the side sleeping position has many benefits. Having the neck in the correct alignment along with a the rest of your body will reduce strain and tension, allowing the muscles to relax and keeping the neck in its all-natural posture as well as reduce pressure on the internal organs.

The pillow also aligns the lower back and can help alleviate back muscle spasms. The same harmful effects with a twisted neck also apply to the lower back when not aligned correctly. The twisting stresses the joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves while you sleep. The body pillow permits alignment of the entire spine to help get a better nights sleep and wake up in the morning with less pain and stiffness.

For those suffering with persistent back pain or an acute strain or pulled muscle, using the pillow under your knees while lying on your back can help reduce muscle tension. When not in use for sleeping, the body pillow can also be positioned behind the back used for better positioning while reading or watching TV at night.

For those who do not sleep on their stomachs, experiment with the orthopedic body pillow using the wedge pointed in and out in order to get the most comfort possible. It will not twist up the covers and is very easy to maneuver because it is lightweight. It won’t take long before you will wonder how you ever slept without it! It may not be the easiest pillow to travel with, but find the room if you can, because once you get used to it, you will feel lost without it. With its great versatility, quality, orthopedic design, durability, and 100% satisfaction guarantee, it is a therapeutic body pillow that should not be overlooked. You will get many years of use and comfort. Great as a part of posture modification therapy for the whole body.

Stomach sleeping places harmful torsion forces for extended periods of time. We need an orthopedic device to help phase in side sleeping. Without a specially designed stomach sleeping cervical pillow, this can lead to neck problems. Use the wedge facing towards the body, offering a mild start to side sleeping with slight position modification. Use the wedge pointed away from the body to allow a healthy side sleeping position with full body support.

Doctor’s Note: In addition to a supportive neck pillow, if you have difficulty getting comfortable trying to sleep on your side, the orthopedic body pillow is an excellent solution. The teardrop design and soft bamboo cover is perfectly combined and this is one of my personal favorites. I have been a teardrop body pillow for years and it has been a great tool to help sleep on my side earlier after my second shoulder surgery. With the wedge pointed out, it allows my shoulder to comfortably relax without pain and keeps my lower back aligned. Highly recommended!
