Why does my neck hurt in the mornings?

Do you feel well rested and ready to start the day each morning when you get out of bed? If not, the answer  could be that your pillow doesn’t fit you correctly. One pillow doesn’t work for everyone and there are so many to choose from it can be difficult  knowing which one to get. First off, we are  not a fan of memory foam or donut hole pillows and most people get rid of them after awhile. Your pillow should support your neck and hold it in the correct alignment when you are on your back or if you are a side sleeper. The pillow should not raise your head to much above your shoulders which can cause head forward posture and stiffness. If you are a side sleeper the support should be in the middle of the neck on the lateral side even if you sleep in the fetal position. One of the pillows we offer is an adjustable water pillow that can be made thinner or thicker to better fit you.  Other choices we have are the latex pillows that are designed to support the neck, are soft and comfortable. We would recommend that you stop in our office and try one of these out for yourself and start waking up feeling rested.
