The right pillow can absolutely help your neck pain. It's probably no secret that my favorite pillow is the Arc4Life Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow.
The biggest thing you'll notice with this pillow is that it actually looks like a "pillow". It sounds funny for me to say that but I've seen some funky pillows. The reason some people have neck pain to begin with is their pillow.
Does your pillow crank your head upward or maybe lose all its support during the night, so it's like sleeping on the mattress without a pillow. Or did your pillow cost so much that each night you can't get over the fact that it still doesn't seem like it helps.
The NY Times actually did a piece on pillows and talked about Arc4Life's Traction Pillow. With all the crazy pillows out there the traction pillow was one of the top ones.
So How Can Arc4Life's Pillow
Get Rid Of My Neck Pain?
It's all in the design! The neck roll at the bottom of the "V" helps restore and maintain the normal neck curve. The special "V" helps to not only hold the head in place but will also give a ever-so-slight distraction opening up the neural foraman. This gives the nerve root slightly more room and helps inflammation to dissipate.
Let's be clear, inflammation is the usual reason for pressure on a nerve or nerves. When we align the spine, we restore the function, take pressure off nerves, and reduce pain. One might say - "what about the discs?" I've been quoted as saying "the discs are dynamic". What does that mean? To me, that means that they will bulge or retract on their own. How does someone with radiculopathy and a blaring bulged disc on a cervical mri, get better and have a negative mri. It's because the disc retacts back slightly or moves a bit and inflammation goes down, and the patient's symptoms improve.
