The Therapeutica® cervical neck support pillow was created by an ergonomic designer, along with a doctor of chiropractic, for those who sleep on their back or side. This nonallergenic foam pillow offers comfortable, yet firm, support to help restore the natural curve of the neck. The unique nontoxic, nonallergenic, molded foam design includes three distinct areas to help reduce neck pain and stiffness. The gentle incline of the wedge extension supports the upper spine, the firm, cervical contour supports the neck, and the contoured head rest, with airflow channels, helps keep the head level. Both outside edges of the pillow are designed for side sleeping. Our unique molded foam creates a firm foundation with a surface that is soft to the touch. This allows for a comfortable yet supportive night's sleep. Ordering the correct size Therapeutica Pillow is key to helping improve your sleeping posture. IMPORTANT: The product size for this item does not correlate with your clothing size. Please be sure to read the sizing instructions, download the Therapeutica sizing guide, or watch our other videos on how to select the correct size pillow before you complete your purchase. It may take some time to adjust to this cervical pillow and immediate overuse may increase neck pain. Those who slowly ease their way into orthopedic correction, by alternating between this pillow and their current pillow, achieve the best results. Each pillow comes with a machine washable, soft, fitted, zip-open cover that is easily removed for washing. For those who are newer to cervical support pillows, or prefer slightly softer foam, the “Lite” version may be a better option for you. The Lite version provides moderate to firm support, while the standard version provides very firm support.
The contoured head rest keeps head and neck level. This product is commonly used to help treat a variety of conditions affecting the neck and shoulders.
The pillow must be firm to provide therapeutic benefits. The Therapeutica pillow is firmest when it is brand new. As it is used, the cell structure of the foam will soften and provide comfortable resiliency. This pillow is NOT a plush general comfort pillow.
The most common sizes are Average and Petite. NOTE: Clothing size does not determine what size pillow you should buy. As a starting point, measure yourself using the guide available in the images. If you sleep on a soft mattress, measure in between sizes, or desire gentle correction, chose the next size down. If you sleep on a firm mattress, or you desire aggressive correction, chose the size your measurements indicate.
Includes fitted pillow cover with zipper closure. Constructed of nonallergenic and nontoxic foam. Made in Canada. NOTE: If you feel the pillow is too firm, you can accelerate the break-in process by inserting the pillow into a case and stepping up and down repeatedly on the pillow. This will soften the cell structure much more quickly.
It is important to understand that your body may need to adjust to the product over a period of several weeks. If you overuse it immediately, it may increase your neck pain. Most users find that if they slowly ease their way into the correction provided by a cervical pillow, they achieve the best results. You may need to alternate between this product and your current pillow while your body adjusts to the correct posture.
