What is the best pillow for neck pain?

Updated: Feb 7, 2019

This is a question I get asked a lot at ADT Chiropractic by patients suffering from neck pain and shoulder pain, and I always answer it the same your own! There are too many variables for any one pillow to be right for everyone such as shoulder width, how much you sink in to your mattress or the weight of your head!

This is why I advise to make your own with these easy steps;

1) Assess your old pillow - To do this lay in bed on your side, then using a mirror, camera or friend/partner see if your head/neck is alined as straight as possible.

2) If your head is dropping down, you need to buy a thin pillow and put it in the pillow case with your old pillow, and recheck.

Tip: If your pillow only needs a small amount of height added put a folded up towel in the pillow case instead.

3) If your head is lifted up you need to buy a thinner pillow and repeat the process. If your current pillow has you in a straight line congratulations you're good to go!!

If you have corrected your sleeping position and still suffer from neck/shoulder issues or headaches book in today to see if chiropractic can help!
