Orthopedic Neck Support Cushion: Specialized pillows called orthopedic neck support cushions are made to support and properly position the neck and cervical spine. The cushions, which encourage good posture while you relax or sleep, are made from premium materials and often have memory foam or ergonomic designs to assist with neck pain, stiffness and discomfort. For people with neck problems like whiplash injuries or cervical spondylosis, it cradles the natural curve of the neck and relieves pressure on muscles and ligaments.​
