You should also consider your size and body frame when buying the best neck pillow for yourself. If you are smaller or taller than average a standard neck pillow may not be right for you. The reason is that your neck may not fit the pillow adequately causing you to either not get the best support or even forcing your neck into incorrect posture. If you are too small for a standard size pillow or have a very short neck the cervical roll may push your head forward. This simply causes head flexion and may straighten your curvature when sleeping on your back versus putting the smooth curvature into the neck.
You spend so much time with your pillow that it's worth going to the trouble of selecting one that's right for you. You will have your own sleeping style; perhaps you sleep mostly on your side, perhaps on your back, or a mixture of the two - this determines the ideal height of your pillow. Depending upon the state of your neck, spine and back you will require a specific amount of support from your pillow, you'll even have your own preferences for the pillow filling; synthetic (hollow fibre) or natural (feather or down), or perhaps something more unusual like memory foam, latex, cotton or water.
Now, if you have seen your doctor, he may have shown you x-rays of your neck. This can also help you choose your neck pillow. If you have discovered there is loss of your normal cervical lordosis, in other words the normal "C" curve, you definitely want to improve that and get a pillow which will help improve alignment. When on your back the neck pillow should support and improve the curvature. While side sleeping your pillow should keep your spine straight, or in other words, keep the spine level.
