Side sleeping is one of the most common sleeping positions, and many experts consider it the healthiest. Without the best pillow for neck pain, however, side sleepers risk having their necks pushed upward by poor pillow design, creating stress and instability to the spine.

At PILLO1, we will help you find the best pillow for optimal comfort. Here’s an in-depth guide to making sure you experience the full health benefits of side sleeping with a quality pillow.


Side sleeping encourages proper spinal alignment, improves circulation by opening up airways, and relieves muscle aches and pains. It is also an excellent alternative for back sleepers, a sleeping position that tends to trigger conditions like sleep apnea and acid reflux.

The problem, however, is that comfortable side sleeping depends heavily on the kind of pillow you use at night. The typical full shape of traditional pillows tends to press on pressure points on the neck and shoulders. It is also not very effective at keeping the spine and neck aligned.

If you’re a side sleeper and you’re having issues with your pillow, then it’s time to switch to a better option. As you shop for the best cervical neck pillow, look for these qualities:

  • Pressure relief
  • Biomechanical support
  • Guiding contours
  • The comfort of the spine, neck, and head

Only when all of these elements are present in one pillow can side sleepers enjoy a good night’s sleep and amazing pain relief every day.

Introducing the Best Pillow for Neck Pain

In my  34 years of treating patients who suffer from neck and back pain, I noticed an alarming pattern – the pain was most intense when they wake up, which clearly points to the pillow as the culprit.

Most pillows available in the market today offer a one-size-fits-all solution. They do not take into consideration the unique needs of each sleeping position and eventually place undue stress and pressure on the neck, head, and spine.

This inspired me to spend years of research in pursuit of an innovative pillow design that caters to side sleepers. The result is PILLO1, now considered one of the best therapeutic pillows in the world. Here’s what sets the PILLO1 Side Sleeper variant apart:

  • Two Perfect Foams

With PILLO1, you get to choose between luxurious Talalay latex or breathable Gel Infused Memory Foam. Talalay latex is one of the world’s finest foams – 30x more pressure relieving, 20x more durable, and 7x more breathable than conventional memory foam. The premium Gel Infused Memory Foam, on the other hand, contains small elastic and heat-absorbing gel particles to offer gentle support and ease the pressure. Both of the available foams are non-toxic and are “open-celled” which adds breathability.  A cooler night’s sleep not only helps a person sleep better but also helps to reduce wrinkles.

  • Unique Butterfly Design

Dr. Hall’s patented PILLO1 is the only pillow with the revolutionary butterfly design. It keeps your jaw, neck, and head comfortable no matter if you sleep on your left or right side. This ingenious design also creates an arm vent and shoulder cut-outs for the ultimate pressure relief.

The PILLO1 Side Sleeper is also anti-microbialhypoallergenic, and free from harmful chemicals Both the Latex and Gel Infused Memory foams are CertiPUR certified and the Talalay additionally is Oeko-Tex Certified. They both offer the optimal combination of support, comfort, and pressure relief so you can fully experience the health benefits of this sleeping position.

Aside from the PILLO1 Side Sleeper, we also offer the PILLO1 Original for back and side sleepers, and the PILLO1 Beauty, a highly breathable Coconut based standard pillow design for the person who is looking for beauty sleep but not a therapeutic design. The Beauty also comes with a Polysatin outer cover to reduce fraying and messing up of a person’s hair while they sleep.
