Choosing the right neck pillow must be based on what your individual needs and preferences are. It is best to match comfort and functionality of the pillow so that you get the most out of your sleep.
They may often have different designs too. Maybe a wave-like design, or it can have a pocket where your head sits. Material is also another variable. I've seen, experimented with, and have reviewed pillows of all different materials. Fiber filled pillows, water based pillows, foam pillows, buckwheat pillows, etc... I tend to like fiber filled pillows that are standard firmness, not too hard and not too soft. This allows for good support and a comfortable night's sleep. Also, synthetic fibers are often hypoallergenic and don't hold dust mites like a feather pillow may. I tend to find memory foam to be slightly too hard for many, and I don't want to play around and have to adjust my pillow like you sometimes have to with a water based pillow. But again, you may need to try some different options to see what you like best.
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.
