Support Your Neck's Arch like you do the Arches of your Feet

Can you point to your foot's natural arch? How about your neck's arch?

Similar to your foot, your neck also has an arch - it's called the "cervical curve" or "C-curve". This curve is perfectly normal and actually desirable for stabilizing the head and spine. Are you experiencing neck or back pain in the morning? Is your current pillow supporting your neck's curve? Are you using an innovative cervical pillow like PILLO1?

THE FOOT'S ARCH:
Most people are familiar with the foot's natural arch and look to support this curve in choosing the right shoes. Wearing unsupportive footwear like flip flops seriously fatigue your foot's arch and leads to pain, muscle spasms, cramps and shin splints.

THE NECK'S ARCH: 
Similarly, supporting your neck's natural curve is essential for avoiding back and neck pain. Choosing a cervical pillow that best supports your neck is just like finding the right pair of shoes. If your neck's natural curve is straightening out, becomes too deep, or faces the wrong direction, this can be extremely problematic and painful.

Forward head posture is the most common cause of neck pain. Slouching over, improper posture and traditional pillows contribute to forward head posture. 

NECK PAIN & RELATED DISORDERS:
The more time spent in forwarding head posture, the more likely you are to develop back, shoulder and neck pain.  Over time, this can result in disc degeneration, cervical degenerative disc disease, cervical osteoarthritis, or a cervical herniated disc. 

REVERSE THE DAMAGE IN YOUR SLEEP:
Posture exercises may help to reduce the effects of forwarding head posture, but what about the one-third of a life spent sleeping? Most pillows exaggerate the problem by further pushing the neck's c-curve out of alignment. 

Dr. Hall's innovative PILLO1 pillow provides optimal support for your neck's natural arch. This hypoallergenic cervical pillow comes in three sizes and each pillow offers two firmness options to help you find the precise level of support to restore your spine and neck alignment, reducing back and neck pain and reversing improper posture and forward head posture caused by traditional pillows.
