Neck Support Pillow for Neck Pain: A neck support pillow for neck pain is one made specifically to relieve pain and stiffness in the neck area. It often includes elements such as memory foam or contours to support and cradle the natural curves of the neck. It relieves pressure on the neck muscles and encourages relaxation as you sleep by maintaining the proper position of the cervical spine. Such pads are appropriate for people with neck pain caused by poor posture, tight muscles, or underlying cervical disorders.
