Maximize Your Comfort and Support

Our fiber pillows are designed specifically with the neck and back in mind. Choose the firm support of our Standard Tri-Core Pillow or the Gentle Tri-Core Pillow with slightly less fiber and height. If you are new to a cervical support pillow, it may take time to adjust; this is the pillow working to help restore proper cervical curve during sleep. 

*Note: The difference between standard support (firm) and gentle is subtle. The gentle support option contains less fiber, which slightly reduces the height and firmness of the pillow.

 

What is an Orthopedic Support Pillow?

  1. Orthopedic Support Pillows:  Support pillows are designed to help a. correct and b. maintain proper cervical posture/alignment while sleeping by providing the right amount of resistive feedback into the cervical & upper thoracic musculature.   

Special Note: Support type pillows are orthotic devices (like a custom orthotic in your shoe) and therefore may take time to get accustomed to.  Healthcare providers should give patients proper education regarding the time needed for training the musculature in accepting the pillow.  Although some people can react positively to this type of pillow immediately, others may take up to 2 weeks of gradual increased use through the night.  Patient should use pillow to waking tolerance and then switch to previous pillow for the rest of the night.  Each successive night, patient should increase time support pillow is used through the night.

Examples:  Tri-Core Standard; Tri-Core Gentle; Double Core & Double Core Select Pillows. 

  1. Correct:  Helps eliminate symptoms by treating the cause of the condition.  Helps correct the cause of pain, supports treatment to regain proper function.
    At this stage, orthopedic pillows are often prescribed to assist in correcting the diagnosed condition and to help the patient regain proper function. Allows tissue to heal functionally. Prepares for the maintenance stage. Corrective pillows can help alleviate headaches; neck muscle and joint strains, arthritis and whiplash discomfort and help restore proper nerve function. Supportive pillows are used in this stage of care.
  2. Maintain:  Ensures continued good health by helping sustain the body in its proper, natural posture.  Complements care to help prevent recurrence/progression. Pillows selected for the Maintain Stage should ensure continued good health by providing proper positioning and helping preserve the natural curvature of the neck and spine. For ideal maintenance, the pillow should provide maximum support and comfort. In fact, most people discover that once the normal curvature of the neck is restored, they crave the comfort of maximum support - the reason supportive pillows have grown more popular. Supportive pillows are used in this stage of care.

Orthopedic Pillow Uses

Natural placement of the head and neck, accomplished with the many different styles and shapes of Core cervical pillows, can help relieve intense pain by providing natural and correct posturing in supine (back) and side-sleeping positions. 

Cervical support pillows are used when a cervical hypolordosis (less than normal curvature of the spine) exists, to prevent hypolordosis, or when cervical spasms or strains occur.  These pillows are orthotic devices (apparatus used to align or support) used to help relieve spasms, remove minor tensions and maintain or resume the natural cervical lordotic curve while at rest. 

By providing proper neck support, cervical pillows can help with:

  • Neck muscle and joint strains and sprains
  • Tension headaches
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Morning hand stiffness and swelling
  • Temporomandibular disorders
  • Stiffness
  • Snoring  (in some cases)

 

Differences in Pillow Materials

  1. Fiber:  Allows for comfort and support.  High quality fiber is blown to exact specification to insure uniform distribution and pillow weight.
  • Originally used to emulate features of natural down pillows & used in comfort for accommodation.
  • Advances in fiber have resulted in great ability to comfort & support.
  • Core Pillows use conjugated fiber which acts like a spring. 
  • During manufacturing, high pressure will link fibers together & different resiliency levels can be created in the pillow.  This process helps fiber stay in place and resists migration, yielding consistent support as fiber generally has amorphous tendencies and can clump or rat tail during cleaning.
  • Foam can offer the most consistent support but Fiber currently can offer almost as much but with more comfort.
  • Fiber material is available in wide array of sizes, shapes & coatings.
  • Has ability to perform as either a semi-solid or semi-fluid.
  • Polyester fiber has natural flame retardance & durability.

I prefer the Tri-Core pillow to the D-core Pillow, July 28, 2012
By Colorado gal(Pueblo, CO)

Having used these pillows for many years I recommend them highly. I prefer the Tri-Core pillow to the D-core Pillow. I like the Gentle one very much and I have had no neck pain since using it. My biggest concern is that it may not hold up as long as the Standard model. Given the cost of this pillow I would say this is a reasonable concern.

LOVE this pillow, May 17, 2011
By Hurfie(Pennsylvania)

A friend recommended a cervical pillow for neck and upper shoulder pain and I went online to check them out. I LOVE this pillow! I got the standard fill and it has made a huge difference in how I feel. I find I am sleeping more on my back, which is better for circulation, and I am waking up less during the night. I look forward to laying down at night after a long day. The pain I was experiencing is gone. A simple solution for an annoying problem. There is no risk with trying this pillow!

still a work in progress , May 10, 2011
By diane with the neck problem (chicago il)

I am still at the I'm not sure stage. I had one of these about 6 years ago and loved it. I then order the same, but the smaller size and hated it. The first one at this point is really in need of replacing, so I thought I'd try again. When I got this new one, as soon as I opened the box, the odor was so over powering. I had to take it to the garage to air out over the weekend. the odor did go away, but i noticed this is slightly smaller that my older one, even tho this is suppose to be full size. some nites i love it, so nites, I threw it to the floor. So we will see.

Exceeded my expectations, December 19, 2010
By map98(Baton Rouge, LA)

I bought this pillow in hopes that it would relieve my neck discomfort. In the mornings, my neck would be terribly sore and stiff. Now after using it for only 2 weeks,my neck is free of pain, stiffness and soreness in the mornings. I really didn't expect it to work so well so fast!

Best Pillow you could every purchase, April 10, 2009
By Donna the Pilot(Yelm, WA 98597)

We recently purchased several pillow for ourselves and for each of our sons. We love the pillow and so do they. It supports the neck and one of our sons has sleep appnea (spell?) and feels he sleeps much better. I recommended the pillow to a young lady at our church who has been diagnosed with only getting 10 minutes of sleep every hour. I would recommend this particular pillow to any and everyone who doesn't get a good nights rest as you will most certainly be happy with this pillow and get the best nights rest you have ever had. The representative (Laura Fox) was very helpful and courteous in my purchases. Donna Morris
