Your Pillow May Cause Your Neck or Back Pain.
- To avoid neck and upper back pain from improper neck support:
- Select a pillow that will hold your head in a neutral position while sleeping on your side or back.
- Avoid excessively thick or multiple pillows. Choose a fiberfill or feather/down pillow as these are usually better than foam.
- Consider a commercially available pillow that promotes good neck posture.
