First of all, a neck pillow is a pillow with built in support for the neck. A couple of names used synonymously with neck pillows are: support pillows or contour pillows. Sometimes the term orthopedic pillow or chiropractic pillow is used as well.
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.
One very popular type of feather pillow is a down feather pillow, down pillows are filled with feathers from a goose. Goose down is the material that is located under the feathers of a goose and it is very soft. It is used in pillows because it provides a very luxurious feel as well as being very soft. This type of pillow is the most costly and for many people it doesn't provide enough neck support. But when you find that perfect feather pillow you will be guaranteeing yourself a restful night's sleep.
