The Pillo Pedic is versatile pillow with four way design that provides a therapeutic edge for any size, age, or body type.

Each Pillo Pedic has a firm 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.

Available in Junior: (23″ x 15.5 x 2.8″/ 3.8): for children and small-framed adults under 110 pounds | Standard: (23″ x 15.5″ x 4.25″) for average adults | Extra: (23″ x 15.5″ x 5″) for larger adults over 180 pounds. Now, the Extra is the one I use and I am 6′, 185 lbs. So, keep in mind the neck height is 5 inches. Snug against shoulders for side sleeping.

There is a break in period with the foam, it will soften over time.

The pillow offers some unique features: The soft fiber center is both comfortable and cooling. It is very soft on the jaw for those suffering from tmj pain as well as allows air flow for those with ear problems. The foam edges and base allows multiple positioning. This can help you gradually get used to a cervical pillow and accommodate different levels of neck spasm. With spasm of the neck muscles from injury or loss of the natural curve of the cervical spine, a gradual use towards the normal ergonomic positioning may be beneficial.

Of course, many will initially find the pillow comfortable using the narrow foam edge with the soft fiber center. But, let’s say you are in a lot of pain from a whiplash injury or have been using poor pillows for years and have chronic pain issues. You can start out with the bracing effect of the first position, using the wide, firm edge with the medium center. This allows for swelling and the most stabilizing effect.

After a few nights, you can move to position number 2, with the narrower edge and medium center. This allows for a gradual increase in the curve after an initial period of bracing, and this position may be used for a few weeks to help achieve balance.

The next step would be position number 3 with the wide firmer edge, along with the soft center. This begins the process of normalization and prepares the neck for the final stage. After a week or so, move to the last position, number 4 for the most comforting posture using the narrow edge with the soft center. This is the most plush and comforting, allowing long term rehabilitation and comfort.

The Pillo Pedic Pillows have been used for years by Chiropractors and are well established cervical pillows. The combination of foam and fiber has provided a unique approach to managing neck pain conditions from initial injury through rehabilitation, as well as chronic neck problems.

This is a great uniform surface pillow for use in combination strategies with use of a functional pillow. I have used the Ultra for years along with the therapeutic pillow. The cooling properties of the fiber center and memory foam support for the cervical spine in the Ultra is both comfortable and therapeutic.

While I like memory foam and generally use the contour memory pillow, because it is soft and my neck is quite sensitive, however, it does not breathe well and poses a problem for ear problems I develop. I know there are many companies that advertise a cooling and/or breathable type of memory foam, but it all compresses and poses problems. This is a great alternative. I use this or the contour probably 80% of the time and the therapeutic for instances of inflammation from flare-ups or re-injury of my neck/shoulder. This is my strategy and it works very well for me and others who use this type strategy.

Pillo Pedic Traction Pillow Feature

traction pillow instructions

Position a firm edge of your pillow pedic under your head, touching your shoulders. Bend 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 body downward (creating traction on the neck) as the head is held gently but firmly by the foam edge. This will result in a relaxation of the neck muscles and encourage normalization of the spinal curve, which can help nerves, bones and soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) in your neck and shoulders function better.

The four way design provides a strategy the management of acute injury and chronic conditions as well as transitioning through stages of recovery or flare-ups. If you are not sure, ask your Chiropractor for a recommendation!

A 2019 study in Health SA Journal of Interdisciplinary Health Sciences noted better sleep ergonomics are prescribed as an adjunct treatment to chronic neck pain for maintaining an ideal sleeping posture to increase tissue repair, decrease muscular tension and better quality sleep quality. In the study Chiropractic patients prescribed a pillow showed clinically meaningful benefits in addition to chiropractic care.
