How to choose the best pillow for your sleeping position?

October 5, 2021 / 11:06 AM

We all know that pillows help us feel more comfortable and get to sleep easier. However, more than that, using the right pillow is the key to alignment. It keeps your spine neutral and supports the natural cervical curve of your neck and back. Therefore, in addition to your personal preference, you should also pay attention to your sleep position when choosing a pillow.

Back sleepers

People who sleep on the back just need a little support for their spine to rest in its natural shape. With this sleeping posture, it is easier for your cervical spine to be aligned. So back sleepers will need a low and soft pillow to avoid stressing the neck. Using a too high pillow might generate negative effects on the blood flow circulation and cause neck pain in the long term.

Side sleepers

Not like the back sleepers, side sleepers will require lots of support from the pillow. Their head and neck need lifting and support to keep their spine aligned. Therefore, their pillow would be higher than that of a back sleeper. Also, side sleepers might consider a pillow with a medium-firm level to prevent their head from sinking down and letting the spine out of the neutral alignment.

Stomach sleepers

Sleeping on your stomach will lead to a lot of stress and pressure on your neck and spine, placing your cervical spine into a twist. A high pillow can make your head craned upwards and your posture will be out of alignment. Therefore, stomach sleepers will find a thin pillow suitable for them as it will not lift their head too high or make the twist worse. The right pillow will help to support the spine natural C curve, preventing head and neck pain.
