The Best Pillow for Stomach Sleepers is One that Keeps Cervical (Neck) Spine in alignment
The best pillow for stomach sleepers is one that aligns the head properly. Sleeping on the stomach will cause the head to be pushed upward at an unnatural and uncomfortable angle. Stomach sleeping makes it difficult to maintain a neutral position with the spine. The position puts pressure on joints and muscles. As a result, sleep-related discomfort and pain are often felt by stomach sleepers. It is very important for a stomach sleeper to sleep with a leg over the edge of the bed or drawn up to relieve muscle pressure in the lower back. Also, putting a pillow under the hips and lower abdomen will give the bottom of the spine a boost. Finding the perfect pillow is a very important aspect of a stomach sleeper’s well being.
If stomach sleeping is preferred, the best pillow for stomach sleepers is one that keeps the cervical spine in alignment. Although sleeping on the stomach is widely regarded by many professionals as the worst sleeping position, it happens to be a natural position that all people have slept in. Proper pillow placement in the stomach sleeping position can reduce the chances of waking up with back and neck pain.
The Align-Right Pillow’s cylindrical design fits and supports comfortably into the chest, helping to keep the cervical spine in alignment. This position comfortably angles and cradles the neck and head while the stomach sleeper is cuddling the pillow.
