What's The Best Pillow?

I am often asked by patients, "what kind of pillow should I be using?" This question generally comes after someone has been suffering from neck pain, and is having trouble getting comfortable, falling asleep, or staying asleep.

The simple aswer to that question is: there is no such thing as the magic pillow. You have probably seen hundreds of different types of pillows for sale, all offering you the best sleep you have ever had. A lot of people end up spending too much money trying, and then discarding, various wonder pillows. To find the right pillow, you need to take into account your sleeping position. 

At the end of the day, the best pillow is the one that makes you the most comfortable and helps you sleep. Personally, I prefer goosedown pillows. They can be squished-down to gently support the neck when you are on your back, or fluffed-up to provide added support for side sleeping.
