Doctors advise to use daily a tempurpedic pillow for various problems with the back, neck; with such diseases as osteochondrosis, scoliosis, curvature, as well as with sleep disorders. The peculiarity of these pillows is that their design allows you to occupy a comfortable and physiologically correct position for the spine. In this position, the circulation of blood in head and neck improves, the vertebrae are unloaded and the muscles relax faster. After resting on a tempur-pedic pillow, people note that the quality and depth of sleep rises, pain in the neck decreases, and snoring decreases. Today, the orthopedic market has been flooded with a wide variety of tempur-pedic pillows: with a cooling gel, a bamboo pillowcase, a memory effect. They are used not only at improving health, but also in caring for your beauty: for example, a bamboo pillowcase tones up the skin and increases its elasticity.
All the accompanying effects of such a product – it’s very good, but it’s important not to get lost when choosing an orthopedic pillow for yourself. First of all, we should pay attention to the following factors:
– Natural materials.
Follow what the manufacturer writes on the package boxes: 100% cotton? Polyurethane? Of course, the best choice will be the most natural product, but, for example, a classic filler – a feather or down can become a strong allergen. At the same time, cushions made of viscosolastic or latex have hypoallergenic properties and do not harm health. In this case, you should take care of buying a special pillowcase made of natural materials.
– Correct height.
Please note that you need to select a pillow individually, and if you purchased it for yourself, it probably will not suit your loved ones. In order to choose an orthopedic pillow, you need to measure the distance from the base of the neck to the edge of the shoulders. To the result add another 0.5-1 inch – and you will get the required height of the cushion pillow.
– When choosing, be guided by your own preferences.
It does not matter what effect you need. It’s about the posture in which you sleep most often. For example, if you prefer to lie on your back, then you should choose a pillow with a relatively stiff base, on your stomach – with a softer one.
– External factors.
Also pay attention to your mattress, if it is excessively soft – you should choose a pillow with a higher roller, and too hard in combination with a low pillow will become a nightmare for you.
