Orthopedic pillows and their uses
Orthopedic pillows are a medical product, often recommended for people who frequently travel, or experience neck pain. This type of pillow prevents pain in the neck and shoulders and doesn’t require a doctor’s consultation prior to purchasing. Additionally, they are highly recommended for pregnant women and those who breastfeed.
This type of pillow also helps people who have undergone treatment of the hip joints or have osteoarthritis of the joints and spine. Orthopedic pillows are also used during sleep apnea therapy, for infants, in the case of acid reflux, and if the person has varicose veins of the lower extremities.
How do orthopedic pillows work?
The assumption is that an orthopedic pillow is meant to keep the body in the correct position throughout the day. This type of contour pillow is made with thermoplastic foam, which adapts to the shape of the body, providing cervical support and comfort while you sleep.
Specialized orthopedic pillows are used when it comes to changes in body position. A wedge pillow between the knees holds the hip joints in the right position, especially during sleep, which is beneficial in keeping the hip joints in place. The anti-reflux wedge keeps the head in a position that prevents the stomach contents from coming back out through the mouth.
