NECK PILLOW PROS:
> There are numerous customer reviews of neck pillows that state a more rested feeling after using, along with neck pain relief. Most do appear to work.
> Relatively inexpensive for the benefits they provide
> Can increase sleeping & resting comfort
> A versatile health item to buy because it can be used at home, while traveling on planes and in cars
NECK PILLOW CONS:
> Doesn’t actively stretch or strengthen neck muscles to permanently realign & support the neck – a temporary fix but not a viable long-term solution for most neck pain
Do not wear a neck support too long because this can weaken the neck muscles.

Neck pillows, along with other types or forms of neck supports designed to enhance user comfort while resting or sleeping, do work & have proven to relieve stress points in the neck by offering cushioned support. However if your looking to buy a neck pillow and your neck pain, like most people, stems from cervical misalignment (head forward posture), then you should know that neck pillows do nothing to permanently restore cervical alignment. Unlike neck pillows, the BODY-ALINE re-balances all your postural muscles to permanently restore good posture. This will eliminate most neck pain throughout the entire day, as opposed to just while you’re sleeping or using the item while resting. If you find that a certain type of neck pillow increases your comfort then, by all means, use it. Just don’t expect it to permanently cure neck pain; which means you’ll have to continue to use the neck pillow all the time for temporary relief. Many have asked the questions: “Do neck pillows work (help) for neck pain?” and “What are the best neck pillows?” This analysis summarizes why, in our opinion, the BODY-ALINE is a better & more effective back pain solution compared to even the best neck pain travel pillows for cervical pain, although they both work well together.
A Personal Review of Neck Pillows & Supports from BODY-ALINE Co-Inventor Jason Bowman…
I’ve been using a neck pillow while traveling on a plane for many years and I travel a lot, so I’m a fan. If you’ve never tried one of these before, I suggest you do. Their comfort & support may surprise you. I don’t travel without one. So, if neck pillows work for you, or will work for you, then by all means use them – just don’t expect it to permanently cure your neck pain. If you’re serious about fixing neck pain while at home, in the care, or while flying on a plane, then start by realigning your entire spine with the BODY-ALINE.
