Sleeping without a pillow may benefit some people with neck pain, but it is not a one-size-fits-all solution.
The best sleeping position and pillow for neck pain can vary depending on the individual’s specific condition and needs.
Sleeping without a pillow can help to maintain a more neutral position for the neck and spine, which can reduce strain on the muscles and joints. However, sleeping without a pillow can also put more pressure on the shoulders and cause discomfort in other areas.
For some people, using a supportive pillow that helps to maintain proper alignment of the head and neck can help reduce neck pain. Memory foam pillows, cervical pillows, and water pillows are some examples of pillows that may be beneficial for people with neck pain.
Consider other factors contributing to neck pain, such as sleeping position, mattress firmness, and overall sleep hygiene. If you are experiencing persistent or severe neck pain, seek medical attention to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.
