Wave Neck Pain Goodbye
with These 8 Easy Tips
Persistent, irritating, and sometimes even debilitating, neck pain can be a serious issue. The stiffness and aches can be caused by so many things – spending too much time on your phone, hunching in front of the computer, osteoarthritis. Very rarely, neck pain can be a symptom of a more serious condition. Thus, before seeking relief from your neck pain, do see a doctor to rule out another issue.
While it’s annoying and often persistent, neck pain can be addressed very effectively via a few simple steps. Here are some of the top approaches bound to give you a good result and a massive relief.
1. Pay Attention to Your Sleep Position
If your neck’s bothering you, it may be a good idea to introduce a bit of mindfulness to your sleep routine.
According to Harvard Health Publishing, people suffering from neck pain should choose one of two positions – side or back sleep. Sleeping on the stomach is very tough on the spine and while modifying a favorite sleeping position can be challenging, it’s essential to get better support.
2. Try Stretching
Gentle neck movements can alleviate the condition. A good stretch in the morning and a stretch after a few hours of computer work can do miracles for neck stiffness.
Here’s a list of some pretty good neck stretch exercises you can (and should!) start doing on a regular basis.
3. Get a Massage
When done by a professional therapist, massage can relieve neck pain. Research shows that multiple 60-minute massage sessions over the course of four weeks can significantly reduce the severity of neck pain. In fact, getting massaged three times per week can improve function and enhance the range of motion greatly.
4. Use Just One Pillow at Night
Do you love the fluffy and comforting sensation of having multiple pillows in your bed? If you value neck health, this has got to stop.
Sleeping with several pillows for support can aggravate neck pain and limit your range of motion during the day. Choose just one favorite pillow and make sure it offers enough support.
5. Be Careful about Using Your Phone
If you’re a habitual smartphone user, you probably don’t realize how much time you spend staring at the small screen. That’s definitely killing your neck.
When looking at your phone, keep it at eye level. Take a break after 10 to 15 minutes and try to be mindful of your posture while you’re using a device.
6. Give Your Neck Enough Support During the Night
As far as your pillow goes, it has to be supportive enough without being excessively stiff.
Memory foam is a great choice because it follows the contours of your neck and gives natural support. Avoid sleeping on an overstuffed pillow or a pillow that’s too rigid. It will keep your head at an unusual angle, contributing to stiffness in the morning.
7. Support Your Neck As Much As Possible During the Day
Are you riding in a bus? Watching TV? Just relaxing on the couch? If so, use a small pillow (the horseshoe-shaped ones are a good choice) to support your neck while chilling. This should turn into an essential habit – grab the pillow the moment you sit down!
8. Try a New Pillow
Some people find out that choosing a flatter pillow than the one they’re currently using can quickly contribute to a reduction in neck pain.
Also, if you use a feather/down pillow that you haven’t replaced for a few years, you need to go shopping. Feathers collapse over time, hence you will need to get a brand new pillow every year.
If you don’t want to go through such a process, Sidney Sleep has got you covered.
Sidney Sleep features our proprietary filling of memory foam and polyester. The blend offers enough support, it feels really soft and comforting, and most importantly – it doesn’t collapse!
Pillow quality is one of the most important prerequisites to overcome neck pain. This is the main reason why you should do some research and invest in a product capable of offering sufficient, anatomical support.
Sidney Sleeps range of pillows is also characterized by lovely personalization options. If you feel like the filling is too much, you can easily open the pillow and take out some.

How do i adjust my pillow?
Our Sidney Sleep pillows are filled with shredded memory foam making them fully adjustable. To do this, just open the zipper on the inner lining and add or remove as much fill as you need to match your sleeping style and support needs. Here's what we recommend:
Side sleepers should aim for a pillow that is more supportive, with a higher loft profile (add fill). A higher loft will provide some nice pressure relief in your shoulder, and hold your head in neutral alignment with your spine ensuring that your head doesn’t gradually sink down, out of neutral alignment with your spine.
Back sleepers should aim for a “happy medium.” This means that the loft should not be too high, or too low either, (remove a little fill) however, back sleepers often alternate between the supine and lateral positions.
Stomach Sleepers in order to keep neutral alignment should use a pillow with low loft, and soft firmness (remove a lot of fill) to support the natural curvature of your spine, and make sure your head/neck is not craned upwards.
