My name is Jessica, I am 57 years old and a month ago I was suffering from constant pain in my neck. This problem had been bothering me for several years in a row. Often the pain occurred after busy days at work, long walks with the children, and housework. I had no idea that this was just the beginning.
For a while, the pain was only in the neck. Gradually, the pain started in the back of my head and spread to my temples. It got to the point where I had to lie down for one or two hours just to feel better. Even the painkillers had no effect.
One such day, my friend Margaret came to see me. When she heard I was in trouble, she recommended a masseur she knew. I had several sessions of a good massage. I felt better for a while, but the pains returned with renewed vigour.
I was sick of it! I started having problems at work, spending less time with my family and giving up hobbies.
First I read the internet forums. Some people talked about orthopedic pillows for a good night’s sleep. A few stories inspired me, they described my problems in the same way. I decided to find out if such pillows are really useful.
Through Google, I found an article by the Institute of Japanese Experimental Medicine on the benefits of memory foam pillows for the neck (Link to article). For example, people who sleep on ordinary feather pillows overload their cervical spine due to the incorrect positioning of the head. Orthopaedic pillows have no such side effects.
The best part is just ahead. Reading about pillows has taught me a lot about the structure of the spine and its problems. It turns out that our posture affects the position of the head and the tension of various muscles. Slouching causes the head to shift forward, the neck muscles become overloaded and pull on the cervical vertebrae. This is one of the causes of pain.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any research to answer the question, “What are the best ways to relieve neck pain?” But the idea of trying an orthopaedic pillow is on my mind.
I didn’t lose anything. Firstly, the pillow always comes in handy at home. Secondly, it is not a Boeing that requires an experienced pilot, you fall asleep on a new pillow, you evaluate the results in the morning.
I have read many positive reviews on forums about the contour orthopedic memory foam pillow for neck pain. I visited the website. I was pleasantly surprised by the large selection of products and even a little confused – can so many problems be solved with different orthopaedic products? As it turns out, yes!
I liked that the contour orthopedic memory foam pillow for neck pain is made of hypoallergenic materials, is easy to clean and requires little maintenance. After researching customer reviews from Ireland, I placed my order. It was confirmed and seven days later the pillow was on my bed. They also have free shipping to England.
The first observation is that you lay your head on the pillow and it gradually ‘envelops’ it, taking on a perfect shape. It feels like lying on a cloud. Secondly, it doesn’t make my head sweat. No matter how I turned, the temperature stayed comfortable.
I wasn’t expecting a fantastic effect. Yes, I slept well. For the first time in a long time, I didn’t wake up in the night from an uncomfortable head position. Unfortunately, in the evening I felt the pesky pains again.
Of course, it upset me, but I decided to sleep on a new pillow.
One morning, I found myself brushing my teeth and not feeling any heaviness in my neck. I turned my head several times in different directions and felt no pain. A miracle? No, I’m a pragmatist and don’t believe in miracles. Nothing has changed in my life. Just the pillow. “Okay,” I thought, “I’ll see what happens”.
A month has passed. My happiness has set in. The unfortunate pain left my life and I started doing special exercises, finally restoring my neck.
For a good price, I bought a product that saved me money. I stopped buying unnecessary medicines, I stopped going for massages. I think the insurance company is relieved because I no longer have to go to the doctor with this issue.
At first, I thought I didn’t need it, but at that moment my neck itself pointed out my wrongness, treacherously sore. “To hell with it, my patience isn’t worth it,” I decided then and ordered.
My stress level went down. Logically, I am getting more sleep. At the same time, I was more productive at work, and for the first time in two years, I turned in my quarterly report without errors. Now that’s fantastic!
In conclusion, I would like to say that I was lucky. I found a good product that solved my problem. Unfortunately, not all people will follow my path and get a similar result. This has to be understood. In any case, you are welcome to give it a try.
