Foam pillows are another option for you, especially if you have problems with your neck or back after sleeping. Today many doctors offer their patients to sleep on foam. Sleeping on a foam pillow a person's head is better supported than by a down or feather. But foam pillows are rather firm.
Pillows offer an array of health benefits. Of course, the positive health effects of them depend on the type of pillow. An old, worn out pillow that is uneven will do a lot more damage to your health however most pillows offer some type of advantage. The underlying fact behind the comfort that pillows provide is due to the fact that it efficiently supports your neck and cervical spine.

A down pillow is one of the types of pillow used by many people nowadays. Down pillows are filled with goose down. The latter is the soft material located under the feathers of a goose providing a comfortable and soft feeling to people sleeping on such.
