What Is an Orthopaedic Pillow?
Orthopaedic pillows are designed for correcting body positioning in bed. They ensure the right support and placement of specific body parts, providing a quality night's rest.
Unlike orthodox pillows comprising fibre and foam, memory foam pillows stand out by heat sensitive material which perfectly moulds to the body contours, is eco-friendly, and non-allergic. In general, an orthopaedic pillow serves two basic purposes:
- To provide comfort. The more comfortable you feel yourself in bed, the faster you fall asleep.
- To ensure a correct sleeping position. A good pillow supports your head and neck and put them in the correct position. This prevents muscle pains in the head, back, neck and shoulders.
Orthopaedic pillows are considered as therapeutic pillows, as they help relieve a variety of health conditions, namely such as insomnia, snoring, acid reflux, sleep apnoea, gastroesophageal reflux disease, sciatica pain, breathing difficulty, lower back pain, blood circulation problems, whiplash, neck pain etc. There are a great variety of orthopaedic pillows on the market for different parts of the body, sleep disorders, and physical ailments.
In addition to a good pillow, we recommend you to consider buying one of the foam memory mattresses. It's a great contribution to the quality of your sleep that will provide maximum support to your head and neck as well as keep your spine properly aligned.
What Features to Compare
There are multiple factors affecting the quality of your sleep and one of them is your pillow. Taking time to find out which pillow type is right for you will help you wake up well-rested and in a good mood. Today orthopaedic pillows come in a range of styles and shapes. But what pillow should you choose? Soft, medium or hard, big or small? Let’s consider the main factors to be taken into account when choosing an orthopaedic pillow.
Some people like sleeping on their stomach, while others prefer to sleep on their back or their sides. Knowing your preferred sleeping posture is important for choosing the right type of pillow:
- Stomach sleepers require very little support, so they should go for a flat and relatively soft pillow. Having a soft pillow will help their neck stay in line with your spine.
- Back sleepers should choose a medium thickness pillow, which provides enough support for their head and neck. It shouldn’t be too thick, as it will tilt their head far forward, or too soft so that it tilts their head upwards. Medium firmness is the best for this sleeping position.
- Side sleepers need a firmer and thicker pillow that will fill the gap between the mattress, keeping their head and neck in line with their spine. Pillows which are best suited for this particular sleeping position fall within the thickness range from firm to medium.
- Mixed sleepers should go for medium thickness pillows so that they can use it comfortably in various positions.

These pillows are recommended for people suffering from snoring, lung problems, asthma, and allergies.

A Heat-dissipating Gel Technology
Sleep is characterized by changes in your heart rate, breathing, brain wave activity, body temperature, and other physiological functions. Our body temperature is controlled by such mechanisms as sweating, shivering, and changing blood flow to the skin. You can promote good quality sleep by creating a favourable, healthy, and cosy sleeping environment. The level of thermoregulation ensured by high-quality bedding products is important for the comfort of your night's sleep.
Most memory foam pillows absorb and hold your body heat, making you sweat. Memory foam is quite dense, which restricts the air from moving through the pillow. Pillows containing gels make your skin feel cooler by transferring the heat from your body to the gel. The Supportiback orthopaedic pillow has a heat-dissipating gel technology that allows absorbing the heat from your neck and head. This pillow keeps you comfortable for a perfectly refreshing night's sleep.

The Best Protection Against Allergens
If you have allergies or wake up with a blocked nose, it may be caused by the pillow you sleep on. The type of pillow you use can make the problem worse, as it can be the perfect habitat for dust mites that trigger allergy reactions. So, it can be wise to get a hypoallergenic pillow, which prevents allergens from accumulating within its fibres.
The Litotree Neck Pillow doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients such as PBDE, chloride, methane, or formaldehyde and provides protection against allergens like dust mites, bedbugs, mould, and other bacteria.

Why Traditional Pillows Provide Incorrect Position for Your Head and Neck?
If your pillow doesn’t keep your head properly, you are likely to suffer from neck and back pain.
A pillow with incorrect thickness will position your head too low or high. If the pillow is too thick, your neck may bend upward and if it's very thin, your neck may bend downward at an awkward angle.
A very soft pillow can’t support your head and neck adequately. Traditional bed pillows filled with down or polyester foam often lose their original shape under your head's weight. Besides, a soft pillow won’t provide the proper lateral support of the head. It won’t prevent your head from turning right or left, especially if you are a back sleeper. This will lead to lateral twists that can cause pain.
If your head is properly supported, muscles can completely relax and you’ll get a better sleep with less pain in the morning. Orthopedic pillows will provide long-lasting comfort and superior support for your neck and head.
Did you know?
When it comes to pillows, the first thing which comes to mind is sleep. These seemingly ordinary objects are more than just a headrest for sleeping. They have a long, interesting history behind them. Here are some interesting facts that will change the way you look at the pillows. The pillows we know now differ a lot from the first ones used by people in terms of the materials used, appearance, and functions.
The First Pillows Used to be Hard.
The first pillows were used in Ancient Mesopotamia in 7000 B.C.E. Unlike modern pillows, the ancient pillows were made of stone and used only by the wealthy. The more stone pillows you had, the higher your rank in society was. Similarly, wealthy ancient Egyptians used stone pillars to sleep with their heads elevated, which prevented insects from crawling into their noses and ears. Egyptians regarded the head as the seat of life and gave much attention and money to pillows for the dead. The wealthy Greeks rested feet and their heads upon decorated bolsters and cushions. People in ancient China believed that soft pillows sucked the vitality out of their bodies during sleep, therefore they made pillows from leather, wood, stone, and ceramic. Some pillows were filled with herbal remedies to treat diseases, restore lost teeth, and inspire sweet dreams.
Pillows Became a Popular Household Item During the Industrial Revolution.
As stated above, only the elite used pillows in ancient times. During the Middle Ages in England, only women in labour used pillows. The pillows were viewed as a sign of weakness, so they were seldom used by men. In the United States and Europe, pillows gained popularity during the Industrial Revolution, when they were produced in large textile factories. Mass production allowed pillows to become cheaper and many households started using them not only as a headrest when sleeping but also for decorative purposes to add accent or contrast in a room.
Types of Modern Pillows.
Pillows can be grouped into a few main categories:
- Throw pillow is a small pillow generally used on couches or chairs for decoration.
- Cushion is bigger than a throw pillow, comes in more sizes and is meant to be sat on.
- Cylindrical-shaped pillow, known as a roll or bolster, is usually used for hugging during rest or sleep.
- Bed pillow is the one people commonly use when sleeping.
Pillows Are not Just for Sleeping.
The pillows are primarily used as a headrest when sleeping. However, their functions have evolved. Today we have neck pillows that can be used for a more comfortable sleep on a plane or in a bus. There are also pillows designed for pregnant women, which hold the belly and take pressure off the back. Besides, there are pillows which offer specific health benefits, like temperature-sensitive pillows, herb-infused pillows, and magnetic pillows. Orthopedic pillows are also developing rapidly. They are filled with foam and some even contain water or gel that can be cooled or heated. These pillows help to relieve back, lumber and neck pain. Some pillows keep the head elevated to relieve puffy eyes, sinus problems, and congested lungs.
Q: What is memory foam?
A: Memory foam was developed by NASA to help keep pilots cushioned during flights. It responds to the body heat, improves circulation, and helps relieve pressure points. These unique qualities make memory foam pillows the best on the market for providing users with a quality night’s sleep. Nowadays, memory foam is used for making pillows, mattresses, movie theatre seats, shoes, and football helmets.
Q: What pillow should I buy for my sleeping posture?
A: To pick out the correct pillow, first determine your preferred sleeping posture: stomach, side, or back. If you like to sleep on your side, then opt for a firmer pillow that lets your head be higher off the mattress and keep the spine aligned. If you mostly sleep on your back, use a soft or medium pillow. If the head is too low or too high, this creates pressure and strain the neck. Stomach sleepers should choose the softest pillows, as they need minimal lifting of the head. Many health specialists don’t recommend sleeping on the stomach since this puts extra pressure on your stomach, upper back and neck areas. Besides, you have to turn your head to one side for breathing, twisting your neck that increases your chances for a neck pain.
Q: Will an orthopaedic pillow make me hot?
A: No, it won’t. The pillow is made of breathable and self-ventilating material. Unlike polyester or feather filled pillows that cause pressure points, the unique memory foam construction of orthopaedic pillows relieves pressure, providing better circulation. Due to increased circulation throughout the body, you may find out that you need fewer blankets for a comfortable sleep.
Q: How durable is an orthopaedic pillow?
A: A high-quality pillow lasts several years before it needs to be replaced. Opt for reputable manufacturers, offering longer warranties.
Q: How long will it take me to get used to my orthopaedic pillow?
A: Some people immediately feel comfortable on the pillow while others, who used to sleep on a very soft surface, may need some time to get used to the unique feeling of memory foam material of the new pillow.
Q: How to clean my memory foam pillow?
A: To keep a clean pillow, you should find out what material is used inside. If you have natural down feathers, solid memory foam, polyester fiber, or latex foam, the best thing for protecting your pillow is to use a removable cover made from a natural, breathable fibre like linen, cotton, or bamboo. Wash it once a month with hot water and more frequently in hot weather. Although solid moulded memory foam pillows are hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites and other bacteria, they still should be washed one or two times a year. A similar cleaning technique is used for gel-infused memory foam.
