I have had severe neck pain for over 20 years. Less then 6 months ago I had back surgery on my neck, and this still did not help me. I didn't know what I was going to do, my neck pain was so intense. I couldn't turn my head with out pain. I decided to give this pillow a try. Let me tell you the first two nights I did not like this pillow to much, but the third night, I did not want to get up in the morning. I was loving that pillow. I have had it for one week now and I won't sleep without it. The hardest part is sleeping on your back all the time, but let me tell you it is so worth it to have less neck pain. - Lori
Thank you so much Lori for your testimonial of the arc4life cervical linear traction neck pillow standard size pillow (24"x17" - medium). For some patients there can be a short adjustment period to sleeping on this arc4life traction pillow especially if you have neck issues such as a previous surgery, or intense neck pain . Yes I would agree, it can be very difficult to sleep on your back when you are used to sleeping on your side. Sometimes, your Dr will recommend to sleep a certain way after a particular type of surgery, such as for yourself. After a fusion type of surgery, the orthopedic surgeon will often recommend to sleep on your back. To have the flexibility to go between back and side sleeping is one of the things that this contoured pillow allows for. You can sleep in both positions very comfortably. We have so many patients who are back sleepers, side sleepers and both.
