Poor neck posture resulting from pillows that lack proper support may cause snoring, headaches, insomnia, numbness in the arms and hands and neck pain or stiffness. Since we spend about one third of our life sleeping, a considerable part of an acute and chronic neck pain management strategy should include neck pillows.

In Advances in Physiotherapy, Volume 8, Number 3, September 2006, it is indicated that supportive neck pillows are widely used in patients with neck pain to reduce pain and get better quality of sleep. They noted "A specially selected and individually tested pillow with good shape, comfort and support to the neck lordosis can reduce neck pain and headache and give a better sleep quality."

According to a study in the Journal of Rheumatology 1994; 21(8):1520–1526, after 18 months of using neck pillows, 84% of 60 people tested achieved clinically important neck pain relief. A study conducted at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine on adults with chronic neck pain found water pillows helped reduce morning pain levels, increased pain relief, and improved quality of sleep.


A German study in Rehabilitation (Stuttg) 1999; 38(3):170–176 showed significant reduction of pain intensity and sleep disorders in patients who used a neck pillow. They concluded that patients suffering from chronic neck and arm pain can be reduced by using neck pillows. Furthermore, a study in Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research 1999; 3(2):1–4 subjects experiencing chronic neck pain revealed that the group using a neck pillow experienced statistical improvement in pain reduction.


A good neck pillow will be better for neck pain .
