As a chiropractor in San Luis Obispo the topic of good sleep comes up all of the time. What I told patient's for the last decade is that it all comes down to good sleep habits and good sleep environments. Good sleep habits is a whole discussion in itself but for now I am going to discuss the necessity of a good sleep environment and the vital role a pillow has in the quality of sleep you achieve. So how do you know if you need a supportive pillow or if you can do without one? Ask yourself the following questions:
Do you feel pain or stiffness in your neck, back, arms or shoulders when you wake up?
Do you get frequent tension headaches?
Do you suffer from arthritis?
Have you been in a whiplash accident, or have you had any prior injuries to your neck, shoulders or back?
Do you weigh more than is recommended for your height and build?
Do your hands or arms frequently "fall asleep" during the night?
Do you toss and turn throughout the night, trying to get comfortable?
Do you clench or grind your teeth while sleeping?
Do you snore loudly on a regular basis?
A "yes" to any of these questions may indicate the need for a proper support pillow. According to Johns Hopkins University and Logan College of Chiropractic, the Chiroflow WaterbaseTM Pillow significantly reduced neck pain and improved the quality of sleep. It is to date the only clinically proven pillow. As your sleep position changes, the Chiroflow WaterbaseTM Pillow changes with you, providing the proper support.
