Many people ask "which pillow is the best for me?" There are many choices out there, and each person is unique with their body and situation, but here are a few helpful guidelines. Your pillow should be supportive to your structure. If you are a “back sleeper”, it is helpful to have a slightly firmer pillow so your neck is fully supported, but not propped up so much that your head tilts forward (no chin to chest movement).
If you are a “side sleeper”, you may need to experiment with proper thickness and support
If you are a “stomach sleeper”- STOP! You should avoid sleeping on your stomach as it puts your neck in a poor position for alignment as it is turned and extended throughout the night, and can lead to increased muscle tension and potentially worse problems over time. In general, your pillow should be comfortable and provide appropriate support to keep your neck in the most neutrally aligned position as possible. You may need to try a few to find your favorite one!
