*Today’s guest post is by busy nurse and Pillo1 customer, Susan Schlegel*
I am a nurse for a busy orthopedic surgeon and this means long hours and high pressure. We all carry our stress in different ways and in different areas of our bodies. For me, it’s in my shoulders and neck. The result? A LOT of pain!
I couldn’t move. I’d suffer with a stiff neck and shoulder for about a week. I’d spend that time lying in bed, calling people to cancel plans — hoping not to accidently move and cause another spasm. Muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatories, ice, heat…I did it all. Sure it helped — but not for long. A few months later it would happen again and I would lose another week in bed. ENTER: Dr Ray Hall.
I walked into his office in a lot of pain and unable to move my neck. He was genuinely concerned with this and treated my initial pain. I explained that may and he asked how I was sleeping — “Not that great!”
He told me about the PILLO1 cervical pillow and I was intrigued but skeptical. I had tried different therapeutic pillows that promised pain relif but made my neck pain worse. I didn’t have much hope for Dr. Hall’s PILLO1 cervical pillow, but I decided to give it a try.
I am SO glad I gave it try though because the results were almost immediate. He explained that the pillow would reduce the stress on my head and neck! It’s been several months and I have no neck pain, I sleep more soundly, and I am dreaming more.
Longer, deeper sleep has given me my life back. I have more energy and have been pain-free ever since I began using the Pillo1 cervical pillow. No more weeks of lying in bed in pain.
