The large selection of pillow types available on the market today does not make it easier for us, the consumers, to choose the fur pillow that suits us best. It just illustrates how much the pillow market has evolved in recent times. In recent years the demand for orthopedic pillows has increased significantly, as children have also become consumers of orthopedic pillows, similar to their parents and older people. When choosing a pillow for a child or an adult, address a number of issues, such as whether you suffer from allergies, and need a pillow with a “breathable” fabric, whether you are used to sleeping on a “high” pillow or whether you are used to sleeping on your side or back. To the latter issue, great importance must be attached, because of the anatomical structure of the pillow, and the weight exerted on the pillow with our head resting on it. Within the rich variety of pillow types available in the market today, you can find pillows designed to give support to the neck, shoulders, lower back, and even the knee.
Which pillows are suitable for people who are used to sleeping on the side
Many of us are used to sleeping on the side. As soon as we get into bed, we lie down on our favorite side, and if we get tired, we fall asleep right away. These are habits that exist from childhood, and are difficult to change. The postures in which we are used to sleeping at night are also the habit that has existed since man was in his mother’s womb, right, ever since. Posture is also important when choosing a pillow, especially if it is a posture that is mostly related to the way we sleep, on the side or on the back. People who are used to sleeping on the side, may develop various back and shoulder problems. Those who are used to sleeping on their side, may suffer over the years from problems such as a back stiffness problem or a frozen shoulder problem. These are symptoms that occur due to the constant pressure that exists on the arms and shoulders while we sleep on the side. Pillows that are suitable for people who sleep on the side, are foam pillows. These are pillows that offer extremely high comfort and flexibility. They prevent paralysis and muscle tension, relieve and reduce the pressure on the shoulders and maintain the contours of the body while sleeping.
Orthopedic pillows recommended for sleeping on the back
Just as there are people who like to sleep on their side or stomach, there are people who like to sleep on their backs. People who are used to sleeping on their backs suffer from problems different from those who are used to sleeping on their side or stomach. People who are used to sleeping on their backs may suffer from symptoms such as sinus problems, back pain and snoring. Pillows that are highly recommended for those who like and are used to sleeping on their backs, are solid but soft orthopedic pillows. These are pillows, which provide support to the neck, lower back and center of the back.
