Choosing the best pillow to avoid neck pain

Neck pain is a problem most adults experience at one time or another in their lives. Research supports that up to 20% of the population can experience neck pain at any given time, with a staggering 50% of adults who have had neck pain in the past 6 months.

A non-active lifestyle, sport or work injuries, bad sleep or incorrect posture due to ‘text neck’ are all common culprits of neck pain.

Of course, necks were not Mother Nature’s best design; especially if you expect this delicate structure to balance a bowling ball – which is essentially what your head is! So, it’s up to us to take care of it and keep our neck pain to a minimum, for a happy and active life.

Thankfully, there’s something you can do for your neck which doesn’t include trips to the physio or difficult yoga poses. And that’s investing in a pillow designed to support your neck and achieve optimum comfort while sleeping.

Bedpost offers a range of high-end pillows from Tempur and Dunlopillow for the best possible neck support. Here are a few options to get you dreaming of a better night’s sleep:

  1. The Tempur Original Pillow comes in soft, medium and firm varieties, following the natural curve supporting your head, neck and shoulders to help align your spine when sleeping on your side.
  2. If you sleep on your back, the Tempur Millennium Pillowcradles your neck when sleeping in this position and offers ergonomic support for your head and shoulders. It’s also available in three, depending on your build.
  3. Yes, Tempur has also designed a pillow specifically for tummy sleepers! The Ombracio Pillowcomes with side indentations, allowing for easy breathing when sleeping on your stomach. The shape, the material and the cover of the pillow have been designed for better ventilation and comfort.
  4. If your sleeping style is a bit of a ‘mixed bag’, Dunlop’s Latex Pillow could be your best option. This classically shaped pillow (easy to find pillowcases for) can be moulded for comfortable support in most sleeping positions. A great all-rounder, the Dunlopillow suits everybody as the micro cushions support and cradle the neck for superb comfort.

Test-drive these pillows at one of Bedpost’s stores around New Zealand. Or, if there isn’t a Bedpost close by, it’s easy to purchase online via the website where all the firmness, size and style options are available.

Sweet dreams and here’s to good posture!
