Suggested Usage

The following information will explain how PillowMed’s orthopedic pillow accommodates each sleep position by keeping the neck in anatomical position:



1.)  Side Sleeping:  While sleeping on your side, your head should not be in the aperture.This should help keep the neck properly aligned and provide shoulder support. Both sides resemble a common sleeping pillow which provides maximum comfort for the neck.






2.)  Back Sleeping:  When you are sleeping on your back, your head should be resting in the aperture. This will allow your head to be near or even touching the mattress. This will keep the head and neck in anatomical position while the neck is supported by the pillow. Benefits from this position may include better breathing, decreased neck discomfort and less snoring.






3.)  Stomach Sleeping:  This sleep position is the least common due to excessive neck rotation that can cause strain. PillowMed’s patented aperture allows stomach sleepers to sleep in a near perfect posture. While sleeping on your stomach, half of your face should be supported on the pillow while the other half is in the aperture. Your jaw, forehead or both will then be supported by the cushioning. This will keep your face slightly suspended off the mattress allowing you to still breathe while keeping the neck and head in anatomical position.


Note: Please allow several weeks for your body to adjust to the proper sleeping positions. Possible soreness may occur initially and is normal as your body adapts to the proper sleep position. Not intended for ear related problems specifically or protecting the ear while side sleeping.
