Square ONE Health Tip Of The Week
Cervical Pillows” The good, the bad, the ugly.
This is one of the most common questions I get asked, “What kind of pillow should I use?” There are many different types of cervical pillows all at various cost and I have looked at and personally used several. They all claim to do the same thing which support the neck in it’s natural position while laying supine (on your back) and while laying on your side. This last year I was at a spine correction seminar when one of the instructors talked about many of the top brand orthopedic pillows actually made the cervical spine of patients look worse when they x-rayed patient’s laying on the pillow, which is opposite of what they advertise. I was curious so upon return home I took a few x-rays of patients on a couple of the most popular brands, the Memory Foam and Tri-Core cervical pillows, both made the patients cervical spine look worse when laying on them.
The instructor recommended one pillow which I started selling and
the patients that purchased it did like it but it looks a bit awkward and it’s a little expensive. About a month ago I found the Proper Pillow while attending a seminar. The makers of Proper Pillow have actually taken the time to x-ray patients using the pillow to ensure it does what it says it does. I’ve been using the Proper Pillow myself and have since been selling it in my clinic with nothing but rave reviews. Watch the video bellow for details.
Using the right pillow can do a lot to relief neck pain, headaches, upper back pain, numbness and tingling in the arms, etc. Learn more about proper pillow by clicking here.
