Using a pillow while sleeping on the back. When lying on his back, a pillow should support the natural curvature of the cervical spine, with adequate support in the head, neck and shoulders. While sleeping in the back, the height of the pillow should be lower than in the sideways position. Place a pillow or two beneath the knees further alleviates any back pain, and is softer position on the back.
Then there is the huge range of specialized pillows offered to people with posture, health and snoring problems. There are neck support pillows, lumbar or knee pillows, back support pillows and buckwheat pillows; all of them useful for particularly physical ailments. Snoring? There are pillows that help some of us get over this embarrassing habit.
A dream position dictate how a traditional pillow top mattress can be used to provide adequate support.
Back Sleepers are unique in that a firm, but soft pillow feels the best. Back sleepers need cervical neck support, but also need less pressure on the back of the head. Contour shaped pillows are perfect for this. They are designed with a valley for the head and an arch for the neck. The nice thing about that shape is that if you end up rolling to your side, you'd still receive the same benefit as a side sleeper. That is, support for the neck with less pressure on the head. Contour pillows are usually made from a pressure relieving memory foam.
But, what if you are one of those people who think Memory Foam Pillows are a little too stiff, but you still want the benefits of less pressure on the head and good support for the neck? Well, one of the best alternatives is a buckwheat hull pillow. Buckwheat pillows are filled with a whole lot of hard, little buckwheat husks. They are a little like flattened beans and they move and slide around as you adjust the pillow to your liking. What they do provide is a variable and adjustable shape that allows your head and neck to be most comfortable. Technically, a buckwheat pillow would benefit all three sleeping styles because of the adjustability factor. There is also a zippered opening that allows one to add or remove fill based on your size or personal comfort.
Over time, cotton filled pillows are beginning to lose their firmness and not to support the neck properly. The pillows that we recommend, does not have a problem and therefore, after a very long time.
