Featured on YourTango - 20 Best Side Sleeper Pillows

"Say goodbye to body pain.
Neck and shoulder pain can be debilitating and it's important to choose a sleep pillow that won't make your injuries worse. A good solution? Finding the best side sleeper pillow to ease the pain.
Says Dr. Allen Conrad, BS, DC, CSCS, "As a Doctor of Chiropractic, we help recommend pillows for people that sleep on their side that will conform to their specific injury, and help reduce more soreness when they wake up. As the owner of Montgomery County Chiropractic Center, we want to help patients get their spine in proper alignment, and if you are using the wrong pillow, you are making the neck worse and it will be more inflamed.
Memory foam pillows differ than traditional pillows in that they will mold to the contour of your spine, which will help you from becoming misaligned. When a neck is twisted for 6-8 hours while sleeping, the muscles can become in spasm and can cause cervicogenic headaches.”
A study by Harvard on pillows and neck pain confirms that memory foam pillows help contour to the curve of your cervical spine. “This helps reduce neck pain when you wake up,” Dr. Conrad adds.
1. Tempur-Pedic Contour Side-To-Back Memory Foam Pillow
