Types of Pillows and Support
Neck pain can be caused by many different medical problems, including fibromyalgia, injuries to the spine and neck, sprains and strains. Poor posture or having to sit in a bent over position at a desk for long periods of time can also lead to pain and discomfort in the neck. If you are suffering from neck pain, you should talk to your doctor about your symptoms to determine the exact cause. Once you have a diagnosis, you can use a neck pillow or support along with other treatments and self-care remedies that your doctor recommends. Using a special pillow while you sleep can help to keep your neck in a neutral position to alleviate pain and discomfort when you wake. Your doctor may recommend a specific type to meet your needs, and you'll find all of the most popular styles at Walgreens.
While lying in bed can help your body recover from an illness or injury and allow you to get a good night's rest to rejuvenate your body, you may experience different types of discomfort while you sleep. If you're pregnant or have problems with your knees, legs or spine, sleeping with a special cushion or pillow between your knees can help you feel more comfortable while resting on your side. People who will be confined to bed for long periods of time can benefit from cushions like wedges and pads, which can be placed beneath bony areas of the body to reduce pressure. This can not only ease discomfort, but it can also help to reduce the risk of bedsores. Egg crate foam pads can be used to cover the entire bed or half of the bed to provide additional support for your body. Before purchasing any type of pillows, supports or cushions for your bed, be sure to discuss your symptoms with your doctor to find out which solution is right for your needs.
If your job requires you to sit for long periods of time or you must sit at home due to limited mobility, an injury or medical condition, you may develop symptoms of pain and discomfort in certain parts of your body. Using lumbar support cushions can help to alleviate back discomfort, while seat cushions can take pressure off the base of the spine to reduce tailbone pain. You may also benefit from a special seat cushion if you suffer from hemorrhoids or other medical conditions. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms to find out what type of seat cushion or pillow is best for you.
