Can Pillow Cause Headache?

We live in a world that is moving onward with an extremely fast pace.Everyday - according to our age and phase - we strive to be good students, good on our job, take care of our kid or kids and generally do our best to make it through the day and end it gloriously, by lying in our wonderfully comfortable bed so we can get a resting sleep and start the next day feeling fresh and strong.

According to the Sleepmentor blog post about best pillows for neck pain - the problem rises when we can't get that precious piece of rest we so much look forward to. On the contrary sometimes we wake in the morning or during the night with an excruciating headache, slapping our usual suspect (the pillow) trying to set it right, not so successfully most of the times.It is not uncommon or unlikely that our uncomfortable pillow is the reason for that...

Choosing a quality comfortable pillow may not be as easy a task as many would think as each person is unique with unique needs. So a pillow that may feel comfy and perfect for some persons may cause discomfort and pain in others who have some sort of neck problem like cervical syndrome.


Our neck consists of muscles, tendons, cartilage and 7 spinal bones which comprise the cervical portion of the spine. They support the central nervous system allowing free movement of the neck and head. During the day you can better watch your neck position, because you got your mind on that but the neck is especially vulnerable during the night when you are sleeping and are unable of keeping your neck and your head in the perfect position. Thus it is of crucial importance to pick up the best pillow for your needs.
