Not very comfortable due to cervical support does not fit neck well and head feels like it is elevated when laying on back regardless of which way I turn and use the pillow. I have had my C5 - C7 fused and need a pillow with good cervical support- this unfortunaltey is not it. -Kimura
Dear Kimura, we appreciate the feedback on the Arc4life traction pillow. This is a good case study for the Neck Pillow Queen, because I can show my readers how ordering the wrong size or using the pillow incorrectly can cause neck pain and problems.
It sounds as if you ordered the wrong size of the arc4life traction pillow. You ordered the large size of this pillow (28"x17). This arc4life traction pillow also comes in medium, and small. No matter which way you turn the pillow, it will be uncomfortable for you.The medium sized pillow might have been a better fit for you. Also, one more important point to note is that you had a cervical fusion in the C5- C7 area of the cervical spine. That means that those areas of your spine should not move. If this fusion was very recent ( within the last few months ) this is not the right pillow for you. You don't want a pillow that stretches your neck (the traction v side of the arc4life pillow stretches your neck)- rather you need a support pillow. You can safely use the support side of the pillow, but again, if it is too big for you, it might be uncomfortable for you to use daily.
