First let me say that this is my opinion, I’m sure there is research out there for the best pillow for neck pain, but quite honestly research isn’t always honest. My opinion probably doesn’t matter too much to you, but I probably have tried more pillows for neck pain than most people, and because I’m a chiropractor I’ve had a lot of feedback from patients about pillows.
Let me explain a little, as a chiropractor sometimes companies send you pillows, or drastically reduce the price of their pillows so you will try them in hopes that you will sell their product. My wife and I have tried many different types and styles of pillows, not only for us but to be able to recommend them to our patients. Believe it our not, the right pillow can really help with neck pain and the quality of (or ability to) sleep.
So what is the best pillow for neck pain, as it turns out it wasn’t the one we thought it would be. You would think that the most expensive pillow on the market has to be the best, well at least for us, it wasn’t. It happened to be a mid price range pillow, not too expensive and not the cheapest either. This really helps make this pillow the best in my opinion, if it’s too expensive, and let’s face it all of these types of pillows are expensive, who’s going to buy it? It won’t do anyone any good if no one can afford it.
So which one gets my vote for the best pillow for neck pain? It would have to be the ChiroFlow pillow. Not only was it very comfortable, it is supportive and totally adjustable to fit you. What makes this one different is that you add water to it, which makes it adjustable to you, and the displaced water supports your neck. About 99% of our patients who tried this pillow loved it and said that it reduced their neck pain and helped them sleep. We did have one person that didn’t like it, she didn’t use a pillow when she slept, and probably still doesn’t.
Here are some quick facts about the ChiroFlow pillow:
- Takes a standard size pillow case
- Has a 3-year warranty
- Currently lists on Amazon for $50 or less
- It’s heavy when it’s filled; so don’t use this one in a pillow fight!
So why did we stop selling this in our office?
We stopped selling this pillow in our office when we realized that you can buy it from Amazon for less than we could sell it, sometimes less than we paid for them. So it didn’t make sense to not pass the savings along and advise people to just get them from Amazon.
This is part of the reason for writing this, not only is this (my opinion) the best pillow for neck pain, but you don’t have to visit a doctor to get one. They are not too expensive (for a cervical pillow) so they are definitely worth getting, just make sure you follow the filling instructions, or the water noise will irritate you when you’re trying to sleep.
