There are several reasons why so many people have opted for foam over the more traditional options. For some individuals, particularly those who sleep on their backs, feathered options may be practical, as back sleepers require minimal neck and head support. However, countless others, notably those who sleep on their sides, have found ample satisfaction after deciding to toss out the goose-down and pick up the foam.
The optimal position for the neck during rest is what experts call the “neutral” position. This is when that natural curve of the neck is at the perfect and comfortable angle, so as not to overly bend or compress the joints. For this ideal alignment of the neck to occur, it’s best to find one that is thick enough to allow your head to rest gently and evenly within the “neutral” position.

The main reason to switch to a different pillow is to ease neck pain (find a good shoulder pillow). Another reason to think about switching is that Cervicalgia is the cause of many more serious health issues over time. While this pain can be the result of many factors such as car crashes, sports injuries or genetics, using the wrong neck support for these pre-existing conditions only serves to exacerbate the problem by inflicting tension and stress on the neck and back.
