Insomnia - the perfect pillow advice

Pillow Advice from Dr. Rob Schroeder, president of Indy Health and Fitness and developer of the Innate Sleep Orthopedic Sleep System

 

Pillows are as individual to the user as running shoes are to the marathoner. Based on the position you sleep in, the curvatures in your spine, and the firmness of your mattress, your ideal pillow may be different than your neighbor’s.

 

I like the density of the material in the pillow to be similar to the density of the upper layers of the mattress, simply to allow the head and neck to respond to the sleep environment in the same manner as the rest of the body.

 

Back sleepers tend to require less height in a pillow (to avoid reversal of the lordotic curvature) with the emphasis on support being through the mid-cervical region rather than the head.

 

Side sleepers require more volume in their pillow to adjust to the distance between the shoulder and the neck.

 

Some of the contoured pillows have one end that is thin and the other that is thicker. This allows for use in both positions if the user is disciplined in positioning.

 

With a mattress like the Innate Sleep, where the curvatures and weight bearing are already balanced, a back sleeper needs little more than a mild roll to support the cervical curve. A side sleeper's shoulders are well absorbed by the plush layers of the mattress, which would require a thin memory foam pillow to balance the head, keeping the spine linear in this position.

 

The key is in the disciplined positioning of the pillow and the body to maintain ideal spinal curvatures, reduce spinal rotation, and maintain a straight spine through the long plane of the trunk. This usually takes some education, understanding, and instruction to work best.

 

I always suggest a person discuss this with their chiropractor to be sure the positioning is ideal for the conditions that they are working on (i.e., right shoulder tendonitis patients should avoid sleeping on the right side).
