An orthopedic pillow is needed for the prevention of diseases of the musculoskeletal system and osteochondrosis, with pain in the cervical spine and headaches.
The correct position of the head during sleep is ensured by a properly selected orthopedic pillow. Blood circulation is normalized, correct posture is maintained, and overall health improves. Your spine should be straight and your neck should not arch, which means the pillow should fill the space between your shoulder and head (if you sleep on your side) or support your neck if you sleep on your back. If there is not enough support and the neck bends, the vertebrae will move slightly and the nerves in the cervical region will be pinched. Due to impaired blood circulation or muscle tension, a headache can occur. Orthopedic pillow allows you to give the spine a more straight shape, reducing pain and helping you sleep better.
In addition, a bad pillow affects the quality of sleep. Trying to get comfortable, we toss and turn and wake up more often, and sleep becomes intermittent and shallow. If you wake up in the morning with a desire to stretch your neck muscles, with a headache, or don’t get enough sleep, it’s time to change your pillow.
