  • 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.

    Don't waste your money!!!

    Posted on 4/2/15

    I usually don't submit reviews, but I felt I should on this product. Not impressed at all with this pillow, did not relieve pain and I have tried it for several weeks now. Extremely high price for such a small pillow and one that does not deliver as advertised. Please don't waste your money on this product.

    Comment from Core Products:

Please call customer service at 877-249-1251 and we would be glad to offer you a refund or exchange for a different pillow that you feel would fit your needs better.

    Update: Please note that memory foam is conforming by nature and if you desire more support, a fiber filled pillow such as our Tri-Core or standard foam pillow such as out Double Core Select, would be suggested.

    Ok but expensive

    Was hesitant due to the bad review but the seller offers satisfaction guarantee. The pillow is definitely not super supportive but it does offer some support, it's just more gentle I guess is the word. I'll probably keep it, it is comfortable.

    Neck Pain Sufferer

    Pillow deformed and softened after only three

    Posted on 5/12/13

    Hello All:

    Don't buy this pillow, period. My Chiropractor recommended I use this pillow after being diagnosed with a reversal of the curve in the upper spine. I have been getting treatment now for almost three months and I have seen a significant amount of progress since starting. My neck pain, headaches and muscle tightness has decreased significantly. Fast forward to the purchase (quite expensive at that) of the Memory Plus Pillow (#191). It took a couple of days to adjust to the firmness of the pillow and then that's when it all started. After the fourth day I noticed that pillow was no longer firm and that the area where I lay down on was being to deform. After one week the pillow completely lost that initial firm support that lead me to buy the pillow. I complained to my chiropractor and he contacted the company which quickly sent me a new pillow. However, only three night sleeping on the pillow and it is happening again. The firmness is no longer there and the middle is bowing again and deforming. This is an expensive pillow which is clearly flawed somehow. I am in the process of contacting the company to see about replacing the pillow with a different one because this pillow isn't working at all. I will update this post when I hear back from the company. Again, don't buy this pillow. It is sold for $75.00 on this site. I feel like I have been robbed honestly.

    Comment from Core Products:

    Thank you very much for your review. We pulled a new pillow out of inventory and our quality control department is looking into this right now.

    Satisfaction guaranteed is our promise to you! I would encourage you to contact customer service for a replacement pillow; please call toll free 877-249-1251. They would be able to suggest an alternate pillow that would suit your needs.

    Update: Memory foam by nature, is more of a conforming material and will change shape based on pressure applied to it. This pillow offers a very mild correction and accommodation for those who like memory foam pillows and are not able to find support with standard pillows. If one were to need or want more correction or support, we would recommend the Tri-Core Pillow.
