Using a pillow while sleeping on your side. When lying on one side, the pillow should support the head and neck so that the natural spine has a straight horizontal line. The weight should be distributed evenly so as not to create natural bending or pressure.Some people prefer to place a small pillow or rolled towel under their waist while lying on the side for extra support.
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.
