Pillow with neck and back support

When you go to sleep you should be secure and comfortable. You shouldn’t feel like you are sleeping on a brick, but you also shouldn’t feel like you are sleeping on a folded-up fluffy blanket. It is all about finding the right back support pillows and neck support pillows.

Are your pillows flat and the only way to feel any kind of comfort is to fold them in half and then this still isn’t enough? Maybe it is time to say goodbye and look for a pillow that will provide you with the support you need but also that you deserve.

AtThe Fine Bedding Company, we are champions of restorative sleep. This is because sleeping is an essential part of life, that helps you to forget about the day and find some peace and restoration.

In this article, you will find out why pillows are vital to supporting your neck and back and what the right pillows for the job are.

Why Are Supportive Pillows Important?

The amount of hours you spend in your bed means that it needs to support you. Your bed is a sanctuary for you to recuperate and find some much-needed downtime away from the hustle and bustle of life.

The right bed pillows are essential for supporting the intricate structures of the head, neck, shoulders, back, and spine in addition to offering comfort.

Pillows can help with several common back, neck, shoulder, hip, and joint pains when used appropriately.

By ensuring that your upper body is in the right position while you sleep, pillows can reduce strain and balance your body's joints. The pillow should fit each person's unique shape, contours, and sleeping position to relieve any pressure points.

Why Is Head And Neck Support Needed During Sleep?

The head and neck are connected to and supported by the cervical spine. This area of the spine holds joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and the first seven vertebrae of your spine. Your body has a lot going on, and everything functions together to provide your head with the support it requires. Depending on how you sleep, this support system may remain in an uncomfortable position for a while. You can wake up with tense muscles, possibly even backache and headaches, as a result of your lack of head, neck, and back support.

How Do I Know I Need Pillows For Neck Support?

When you wake up do you feel rejuvenated, refreshed and full of energy? Or are you groggy, with a tightness in your upper back and neck? Maybe, there is a niggling pain that just won’t go away?

These are signs that your mattress and/or pillow could be to blame and may need changing.

Sleeping with the wrong pillow, that offers zero support can also leave your body stiff and uncomfortable.  

Using the ideal and right pillow to support your neck will help to keep your head and neck neutral and aligned, exactly where it needs to be. This helps to keep your head supported and your spine in the correct position.
