After weeks of discomfort in my neck that I could not get rid of (despite ibuprofen, heating pad, ice, all of which helped the symptoms but were not enough to completely resolve the pain), I decided I needed a new pillow.
After researching orthopedic pillows and reading lots of reviews, I tried this one. The reviews I read along with the fact that they provide a guarantee to let you return/exchange the pillow were a huge factors in my decision.
After one night with this pillow, my neck felt the best it had felt in weeks! Now almost two weeks later, my neck pain is completely gone.
I realize now that the pain was most likely from reading in bed without proper support. In any case, this pillow did the trick to get my neck back to normal. I'm usually a side sleeper but did sleep on my back with this pillow for the first week because of the supportive grove for your neck in the center (intended for back sleepers). It felt amazing on my neck. Now that the pain is totally gone, I've gone back to using this for side sleeping and I can't believe I ever used a regular pillow. Highly recommend.
I had been having neck pain for about 3 months, which I thought was a chronic issue. Like many other people, I spend many hours studying and working looking at a screen or a tablet, writing notes. My neck pain was worse in the mornings after waking up. I did not want a muscle relaxant or to be on pain medication. Then, I got this pillow. It has allowed me to sleep so well. I feel more rested and I don’t have or wake up with pain. My pain was so bad even when I was driving I had to turn my torso to avoid straining my neck when checking blind spots. Hope this helps you. I was hesitant to spend this much on a pillow even though this was the most affordable cervical ortho pillow I could find. Please invest in it. Try it out and I believe they have a guarantee if it doesn’t work for you. It improved my quality of life without a doubt.
I rarely write product reviews, but was inspired to write one for all of those who are desperate to find the right pillow, ,like I have been. I have struggled with neck and shoulder pain for months . I was never involved in a car accident or other trauma to my neck, just had issues caused by the pillows I was using. And I tried tens of pillows, believe me. Memory Foam, regular fill, shredded gel memory foam, you name it. I was DESPERATE. I tried the ZAMAT Standard Countour Memory Foam pillow andit was too firm so I went with the Queen Soft 4.8 inch high pillow. Oh my goodness, it is amazing and has SOLVED my neck issues in ONE NIGHT(shoulder issue ended up being AC joint arthritis solved by ultrasound-guided cortisone treatment). I sleep in all positions and never thought I would find a pillow that could be comfortable for all positions. This is the one, no doubt about it! You can sleep in the same portion of the pillow (high side/middle of pillow where the neck dip is) for any position, and if you want just a little more height for side-sleeping, you can lie on either side of where the neck dip is. Don't hesitate to buy this, you will sleep so much better and wake up feeling refreshed with NO NECK PAIN. Thank you Wellnessan!
