“Most conventional pillows produce subluxations and an abnormal forward head posture (FHP) says Dr. Raymond Hall, DC. FHP is a stress producing reversal of the (normal and optimal) lordotic ‘C’ curve of your neck”.
What are “subluxations” of your neck?
Subluxations are abnormal joint movement and fixations of the spine that usually result in severe pain, stiffness, and oftentimes degeneration in the neck. Have you awoken with pain or stiffness and then an hour or so later, developed this intense ache in your lower neck that travels into one or both of your shoulder blades with intense, searing shoulder pain?
This mystery pain may not be so mysterious! It is generally nerve pain coming from the neck. Conventional pillow designs (and most therapeutic pillows as well), push your head forward into flexed posture position or (and equally as bad), push your head up in laterally flexed position while you lay on your side and do not support your neck. This is not healthy. It throws off the normal weight bearing structural design putting increased pressure on the discs, the small “shock absorbers” of the spine. A cervical pillow is the best option to reduce neck pain caused by traditional pillows.
A study written in the 2001, January edition of the “Journal of Neurosurgery” concluded by saying that “a loss of a lordosis increases the risk of injury to the cervical spine following axial loading”. We produce an “axial” load every time we are upright as the weight of the head is between 8-10 pounds causing pressure on our spine.
To reduce neck pain in sleep, put support under your neck that provides a cervical lordotic curve while on your back and an even level of support while on your side. Discover PILLO1 cervical pillow and learn how this revolutionary design can reduce neck pain and improve sleep.
