1. The shape of the sponge pillow:

The cervical spine is located at the uppermost part of the human spine, wrapped in the neck and composed of 7 vertebrae. The so-called physiological arc is a smooth, forward-facing arc formed by these 7 vertebrae. The function of the pillow is to maintain this normal physiological curve. How to maintain a normal physiological arc depends on whether you are really clear about the choice of pillow height and softness.

How to choose the type:

  The height and softness of the sponge pillow are the key. According to analysis, the cervical spine is most suitable for bending about 3 cm when a person is lying on his back. It will not only affect the quality of sleep, but also affect the health of the body and cause and aggravate the hidden dangers of cervical spondylosis if pillows are too high or too low, too soft or too hard. A good sponge pillow should be able to support the head and neck at the best angle, moderate in hardness, and quickly return to its original shape after being compressed, and it is not easy to deform after long-term use.

In traditional pillows, the head rests on the highest part of the pillow and the cervical spine is suspended which makes the neck muscles and ligament joint bundles in a tense state and the passage of the vertebral artery is blocked, so the neck stiffness and dizziness can only occur after waking up. According to ergonomics, the shape of the pillow with a "high front and low back" shape is most conducive to the health of the cervical spine. This pillow can use the front protruding part to maintain the physiological curvature of the cervical spine.

  Replacement sponge pillow self-examination standard: In the absence of other physical diseases, if you often feel numbness and sourness in the neck after waking up in the morning, this is the shape of the pillows problem.

2. The height of the sponge pillow:

  The height of the sponge pillow also varies from person to person, not that the higher the pillow, the better. Because if the pillow is too high, it will affect your sleep no matter what posture you sleep in. It will not maintain the normal lordotic curvature of the cervical spine, but will go backwards which will increase the burden of the cervical spine and may also cause stiff neck. Similarly, a pillow that is too low is not good, because it will congest the head and easily cause swelling of the eyelids and face if pillows height is too low.

  How to choose the height: According to research, the height of the pillow for the average Asian adult is about 8-12 cm. Generally speaking, our sleeping posture is divided into three types: supine, side and prone. It is best to choose a sponge pillow to maintain the normal physiological curvature of the neck regardless of whether you sleep on your back or on your side. Adults should have a pillow height of 15-20 cm when lying on their back and about 20-15 cm when sleeping on their side.

  Replacement foam pillow self-examination standard: the pillow has lost its elasticity and needs to be patted for a while to restore its elasticity. At this time, the elasticity of the pillow is not enough and affects the cervical spine, so it is time to replace the pillow.
