Hi. I wake up with shoulder pain on both sides. I've been reading articles and one thing I do that I did not know was I put my arms above my head. So I'll work on that.
I'm 5'8" so I think I would need a medium sized pillows.
My question though is... is the Linear Gravity Neck Pillow the product you recommend for shoulder pain or do you have a product that you think would be better to prevent shoulder pain from sleeping? I do not have neck pain or stiffness. Just my shoulders are sore when I wake up. It goes away during the day. Also I think the linear gravity neck pillow might prevent those neck creases I get while I sleep. Those also go away mostly. They are almost like wrinkles, but just from my neck being in weird positions I think. Some days I wake up with them more noticeable in more places. Most important to me though is the shoulder pain issue.
Let me know what product you recommend for sleeping during the night to prevent morning shoulder pain.
Thank you. :)
Thank you for your email.
Harmony, I think that the arc4life linear gravity pillow medium size is a good choice for you. It has two sides to it; one soft one firmer. Try both sides to see which one is more comfortable for you. I would also say that this pillow is of a medium firmness. If you like something firmer, then the tri core gentle pillow. With this pillow there will be more thickness, so more clearance for your shoulders. But the fiber is packed in, making the pillow overall a lot firmer. Some people really like this.
Also, if you are looking for a pillow that prevents wrinkles, I have one recommendation for you: the AB Contour Neck Support Pillow. This pillows has been shown to cause less wrinkles in many patients who use it, because it covered with a satin material. As a bonus, it keeps hair styles in place :). This pillow is composed of precision cut foam and helps wthIt also helps patients with neck and shoulder pain. It is compact enough to travel with with the smaller dimensions: 14"x 9.5".
Check out these two pillow recommendations and let me know if you have any questions.
