For these reasons, Furniture for Backs, only stocks premium quality, Australian made contoured pillows. Our pillows come in traditional foam, latex and memory foam, and all at affordable prices.
HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO CHOOSE A GOOD PILLOW?
Although the pillow, compared to the mattress, is much smaller in size and far less expensive, it still requires careful consideration. Just as your mattress should provide good support for your body, your pillow should give you the right cushioning and support for your head and neck. The right pillow will enable you to experience a deep sleep, so you awaken fresh.
WHY DO HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS RECOMMEND THE CONTOURED SHAPE PILLOWS?
Contour shaped pillows are recommended because their shape will blend more with the inherent shape of our head and neck.
ARE YOU PREDOMINANTLY A SIDE, BACK OR STOMACH SLEEPER?
The space between your head and the mattress surface is greater therefore you require a thicker pillow (relative to your size).
The space between your head and the mattress surface is less therefore you require a thinner pillow (relative to your size).
The space between your head and the mattress surface is the least therefore you require a very thin pillow (relative to your size). Health care practitioners don’t recommend this sleeping position, as it compromises the cervical & lumbar spine. However, if this is the only position whereby you can sleep effectively, then so be it.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU CHANGE YOUR PILLOW?
Every 2 years, not necessary for mechanical support reasons, but for hygiene. Sweat and dirt from our hair will eventually degrade the pillow and reduce its hygiene properties.
