Do You Sleep With a Pain In The Neck?

By “Pain in the neck” we don’t mean your partner, we mean the pillow under your neck. Do you find yourself constantly adjusting your pillow? Do you toss and turn a lot? The pillow you sleep with is personal and often unique to you. Pillows definitely to not come in “one size fits all”. Finding the right pillow for you is key to sleeping in the right position and sleeping soundly.

Types of Pillows

There are a lot of sleeping pillows out there. They can be found in cotton, wool, latex, polyester, and with natural stuffing such as goose down. Pillows will either be soft, medium of firm. A good down bedding specialist stocks only the best goose down that can stay lofty for a long time. There are many different goose down pillows out there that each come with their own unique qualities and firmness. If you usually sleep on your stomach then you need a soft pillow while back sleepers need a medium pillow and side sleepers need a firm pillow. If you’re on the petite side and sleep on your side you should use a medium pillow.

Goose Down Pillow

A good quality goose down pillow that is filled just right will give your head the support it needs to keep it at the right angle for rest. Treating a white goose down right will stop it from going flat, ensuring that it continues to support your neck and correctly align your spine. Having it regularly cleaned and conditioned by a down specialist will keep it clean and fluffy so that there is no dust and it can continue to support you. It’s best to get them cleaned once every three to four years so they stay in good condition. Find a pillowcase with a high thread count to keep the goose down from leaking out. When you’re picking out a personal pillow you need to find one that gives you what you really need to sleep soundly through the night. Find yourself a high quality Eiderdown or white goose down pillow and have it tailor made to you. The result is a pillow that gives you years of sleeping comfort without causing any pain in your neck. Don’t forget to pick up a second perfect pillow for travelling. That way you’re never without a good pillow.
