Have you ever experienced waking up tired and restless? I did. So the husband bought me a quilted mattress which is best for my scoliosis. The quilted bed somehow was able to support my neck and back as it contours to my curves, eliminating the back pain. It does give me a more comfortable sleep. Only that I still woke up tired and restless. It must be the pillow.
Yes, the pillow. There are consequences of using the wrong pillow.
strain in the neck
Using incorrect pillow puts a strain in the neck; thus causing stiff and painful neck in the morning. It was wrong to assume then that waking up on the wrong side of the bed is what caused that neck pain.
My husband once told me the caffeine from the tea I had minutes before I hit the sack was what caused my sleeplessness. But a friend confirmed that she had a similar experience. Her insomnia was caused by the improper positioning and height of her pillow. This caused her uneasiness and constant toss and turn throughout the night.
I even complained to the husband that it must be his snoring that caused my sleeplessness. Snoring is usually caused by blockage of nasal passages and improving his sleep position may also alleviate his snoring. And one way to improve his sleep position is also changing his pillow.
I found out from some research about sleep that frequent headache might be caused by the wrong elevation of the pillow. Tension headaches happen when the neck muscles are strained.
Negative Effect of Using the Wrong Pillow
Research shows that people tend to overlook the way they sleep. Having a bed and using just any type of pillow might not get one the quality of sleep he needs. As there is a myriad of choices when it comes to selecting a pillow, one may find it really difficult to choose the right one for his body type. Now, let me share with you one great invention I recently discovered. It does help my back and believe me, I don’t feel the usual restless sleep anymore.
The beginning of Mr. Big Pillow
Mr. Chawakit Kaoien, the founder of Mr. Big Pillow, is a physical therapist who spent years working in the ICU of a hospital’s respiratory unit. He was in-charge of bedridden critical care patients. He saw to it that the patients were kept comfortable and could breathe properly. This every day dealing and experience led him to develop a brand of pillow that would benefit every individual.
Over the years, Chawakit hacked the right density of pillows as well as the best position to address sleeping concerns. Every individual is different, thus, all cannot conform to just one type of pillow.
By using the appropriate pillow according to height and weight as well as each individual’s condition, one can maintain a good quality of sleep and overall health. To help you assess which type of pillow is right for you, do the quick pillow test here.
