DIY Cervical Roll for Neck Support While SleepingBy Brett Sears, PT | Reviewed by Richard N. Fogoros, MD
A cervical pillow can be used to help support your neck while you sleep. If you have neck pain, you can make your own cervical roll. OR...you can get a Neck Hero!
Neck pain can be a scary experience that can limit your ability to work, drive, or sleep normally. If you develop neck pain, a visit to your physical therapist may be in order to help you manage your symptoms. Sometimes treatments and modalities like cervical traction may be necessary to help get pressure off of your cervical nerves.
While sitting with proper posture is important, sleeping with your neck in the proper position is equally important. Using the right pillow with the right support can help keep your neck in proper alignment and can help you quickly decrease or eliminate your neck pain and get you back to your normal activities.
Supporting Your Neck While Sleeping
Your neck is comprised of 7 bones called vertebrae, and these bones normally form a slight forward curve called a lordosis. Maintaining that forward curve in your neck is important while you treat your neck pain. It can help take pressure off spinal discs and nerves.
