  • 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. 

    Special Note:  There other types of orthopedic pillows.  Besides Support Pillows, there is also Accommodate/Displacement Pillows.   These pillows are designed to help relieve pain or discomfort by conforming to and stabilizing an existing condition.  Relieves pain or discomfort by conforming to and stabilizing a new or existing injury or condition. Provides comfort, but does little to correct the condition. Typically for short-term use.  When a neck injury or condition is acute (serious or to an intense degree, like whiplash or a significant sprain or strain), the healthcare provider’s goal is to relieve a patient's pain and discomfort before beginning treatment. What's needed is to stabilize and accommodate the condition before moving forward. The same is true for other neck injuries or at the onset of many common problems which affect the head and neck.  Accommodation/Displacement pillows work well at this stage because they conform to the condition and provide immediate comfort.

    Examples:  Core Deluxe Water Pillow; Core Memory Foam Pillow

    ***Please ask your healthcare provider which is the most appropriate pillow for you.

    Quality is going downhill

    Posted on 9/18/17

    Due to a neck injury I was introduced to this pillow by a local medical supply company about 10 years ago. Once they quit carrying it I have been ordering it directly from Core. I have noticed that the quality has been deteriorating. The last few I have purchased have needed repairs right off the bat to be used and one had to be returned because it was a mutant. The air bladder has been haphazardly placed inside, one end in front of the batting and one end behind it. The black pumper on the one I got recently keeps falling off and ending up in bed with me or on the floor. If this wasn't the only pillow that works for my messed up neck I wouldn't spend $60 on it. If you are willing to correct assembly errors then absolutely buy this pillow, when it is put together correctly it is extremely helpful for neck problems. Unfortunately this is a recurring theme with many companies - assemblers who don't care about the quality of the products they make.

    Pill to hard and air makes it worse

    Posted on 6/17/17

    Very disappointed! I neede this pillow for my neck. The manufacturer stated it was for side sleeper as well as back sleeper. I found neither to be true for me. The middle is nothing but material and the sides are too full before adding air. TotAlly a waist. I tried to use it almost a month but it made my neck much worse

    Comment from Core Products:

    Thank you for taking the time to post a review. The Tri-Core Pillow and the Air Core Pillow variant are firm orthopedic pillows designed primarily for back sleeping but can also accomodate side sleeping. The Air Core is a versatile pillow, the firmness and loft can be adjusted easily with the air pump. The description of the middle is accurate in that it is designed to provide a place for your head to rest while the cervical channel presses against the neck, thus helping to aid in correction.

    Disappointed

    Posted on 3/30/17

    I was disappointed in this pillow. Having previously purchased a Tri-Core cervical pillow (I had to pull out the fluff as it was too hard and even that didn't really do the trick!) , I decided to give the Air Pillow a try thinking the adjustable air would help make it softer. However, like the original Tri-core cervical pillow, it was very firm and full of fluff, so I didn't really see the point of pumping air into it which just resulted in making it firmer and bigger! Maybe if you have a heavy, large head this pillow might work for you. I am an average size person. Unfortunately this design did not work for me and I had to return it. It is also disappointing that I had to pay the shipping to return it. Oh well. The massage roller that was a free gift with the purchase was pretty nice though. I kept that... although I'm wondering if they will deduct that from my refund since I returned the pillow. We shall see...
