Using the correct pillow is a natural way to help correct, maintain or accommodate your cervical spine. There are four basic types of pillows to help you relieve headaches, neck strain, arthritis discomfort and snoring. Dr. Bretz will consult with you to ensure that you choose the pillow that best fits your specific situation.
The first pillow conforms to your neck for maximum comfort, it helps relieve discomfort due to a recent injury and is constructed with viscoelastic memory foam.
The next pillow treats causes of the condition to help regain proper function. It is constructed with interchangeable cores to provide a range of cervical support. The two different inserts make the pillow adaptable; the softer core restores the proper neck position, the firmer core helps maintain proper neck position. Both the cores are built with polyurethane foam.
The third pillow supports the neck and cradles the head to help restore proper neck posture. This pillow is constructed with Fortrel® antimicrobial fiber.
The final pillow contains a water bladder that helps maintain your adjustments, inflated with water to the soft level helps relieve discomfort, the medium level provides support to restore proper neck posture and the firm level is available for those who want to further customize the firmness of the pillow.
Be sure to discuss the various pillows with Dr. Bretz to be sure you have the correct one, depending on where you are in the healing process.
