sIf you are a side sleeper like me, you must be well aware of the feeling of waking up with an annoying crick in your neck, back and neck pain, occasional headache, restlessness, having your arm fall asleep in an uncomfortable manner and your ears throbbing the next day. These chiropractic side sleeper pillows (which can also be used in a variety of ways) combat these common problems faced by users by customizing them in a certain way, by taking the opinions of professional orthopedics and chiropractors.


What is a Chiropractic pillows?

We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping, and what a shame it would be is this time spent sleeping isn’t pleasurable enough! It is very important to have a good night’s sleep, and these chiropractic pillows ensure that you do.

These are specially engineered pillows (usually made up of memory foam, but any other suitable material works too), which are designed with the aim of realigning the spine and neck of the sleeper, which provides them with comfort and ease. Not only do these pillows make sure that you get sound sleep, but they also help you with your posture. It is important that you get a pillow that best suits your style of sleeping, as most pillows are designed for side or back sleepers, but as you can see in the list that we have curated, some pillows can be used for both purposes. While some pillows are used only while sleeping, others can be used sitting up, while traveling and just when you feel discomfort and want some extra support.

Features to look for while buying a chiropractic pillows –

With a plethora of options available in the market today for these chiropractic pillows, it becomes quite a task to narrow down and find one which is perfect for you. Here are a few features you must look out for before making an informed decision –

  • Materials used for the pillow

Since this pillow is going to become an integral part of your life, it is important to choose one which is not only long-lasting but also does not cause any allergic reactions. Choosing materials like 100% cotton or cotton blends is a good idea, while the interior of the pillow could be made out of memory foam (which has the unique ability to mold

itself according to the contours of your body) or fiber.

  • Additional support inserts/adjustability

For additional support, look for pillows that have an extra neck support column insert which can be put inside the pillow, or a pillow with a zippered design so that you can stuff it more for a firmer feel.


  • Maintenance

Since this is an item that you would be using very often if not daily, it is important to maintain its hygiene and make sure it is in great shape. A pillow with a removable pillowcase is a great option, as you can remove it from time to time, give it a mighty scrub and put it on again. Pillows using memory foam can be just wiped with a damp cloth to get rid of any residue or dust mites. Cotton pillows can be thrown in the washing machine and once dry, are good to use again.

Keeping these 3 main considerations in mind, we have created a list of 7 best chiropractic side sleeper pillows –

This pillow is made of all things natural and does not have formaldehyde. You can use this pillow to sleep on your back or your side, whatever the need of the night is.
