Therefore, to relieve cervical spondylosis, it is necessary to choose a suitable health pillow. There are many kinds of cervical health pillows on the market. How can we choose a pillow with a high comprehensive index and suitable for ourselves? Pon pillows combined with their own experience to share how to choose the right cervical health pillow?
First of all, power of nature talks about the benefits of cervical pillows:
The cervical vertebra health pillow has a good soothing effect on those who already have cervical disease, and can prevent it for those who do not have cervical disease. Can adjust the incorrect sleeping position, play a role in soothing nerves, calming health care. However, it should be noted that the posture used is limited, and usually only the supine can really work.
Four criteria for purchasing cervical pillows:
1, the shape of the pillow:
The shape of the cervical vertebra health care pillow directly affects the comfort. At present, there are many kinds of styles such as “O-shaped pillow”, “B-shaped pillow”, “return pillow” and “golden sleeping pillow”. The “O-shaped pillow” has a simple process and a poor sense of support. “B-type pillow” is very comfortable, but it is not comfortable when it is easy to turn over, which is easy to cause insomnia. The “return pillow” is very comfortable and very popular. The “golden sleeping pillow” caters to the human body curve and has the highest comprehensive index.
2, the resilience of the pillow:
A good cervical pillow rebound resilience must be very good. The speed of rebound time is also mainly determined by the memory cotton material of the pillow. The quality of the material is also the core part of the entire cervical pillow. When we judge, we can squeeze the pillow on the hand to see the time required to restore the original shape. Generally, the rebound time of the high-quality memory cotton cervical pillow is more than 3 seconds.
3, the height of the pillow:
Conventional adult pillows are 60-70 cm in length and 35-43 cm in width. Lateral position head back pillow: 5-7cm; supine position neck pillow: 10-12cm; lateral lying face side pillow: 12-14cm. It is recommended to choose the style that suits your height requirements when choosing a cervical pillow. But for most people, the height of the pillow is generally from a punch to a punch and a half, about 10-15cm, which is good for the cervical spine.
4, the filling material of the pillow:
The material of the cervical pillow is directly determined by the superiority and inferiority of the cervical pillow. The hard pillow has too little contact area between the head and the pillow. The pressure is too small, the hardness is high, and there is a feeling of discomfort. The contact surface of the soft pillow and the head is too large, it is easy to collapse, and it is not conducive to the cervical vertebrae, so the filling material needs to be soft and moderate. Then the memory cotton material is the best choice.
Therefore, for the health of our cervical spine, we should choose the right cervical pillow for health care according to these four criteria, that is, choose a memory foam cervical pillow with good elasticity and high suitability.
