During the initial appointment, our providers ask about daily activities of living, including sleep position. Sleep position can tell us a lot about your musculoskeletal complaints. If you wake up with neck pain or headaches on a regular basis, you may want to consider switching out your pillow. Is your current pillow flat? Puffy? Supportive?
It’s tempting to pick up a pillow during your next trip to Target, Walmart, or Marshalls. But even if you only spent $10, if your pillow isn’t helping you get a better, pain free night’s sleep, you’ve wasted your money.
Chiroflow® Waterbase® pillow are a chiropractic office staple. Before we considered selling them at Pinnacle Hill Chiropractic, Dr. Sarah wanted to give them a test run. Dr. Sarah has a long history of neck pain and headaches, so she was the perfect candidate. After a few nights of using her new pillow, she woke up with less neck pain, experienced less headaches, and experienced a better nights sleep overall.
The Chiroflow® Pillow’s Waterbase® design allows you to customize your pillow to your desired level of comfort – soft, medium or firm. You can control it by simply adding or removing water. The waterbase automatically adjusts to your head movement throughout the night, maintaining essential cervical support, even when you move during sleep. There’s no need to fluff and re-stuff. You may even find you wake up less often during night and rise in the morning feeling more refreshed.
These pillows have gone through studies at the world renowned Johns Hopkins University and Logan College of Chiropractic. The results show that the Chiroflow® Waterbase® pillow is associated with reduced neck pain intensity and improved quality of sleep.
