Do I have any readers that suffer from back and neck pain? I know I suffer from it a lot, especially with being pregnant! Even when I’m not pregnant though I do suffer shoulder, neck and back pain as well as a result from being in a car accident at 16 when a driver slammed into the back of my mom and I at a red light. I was hunched over getting something out of a bag from one of our shopping trips when it happened which I think is a big reason why it effected me so much. I still live with that pain even though this happened over 10 years ago so you know it’s pretty. Well one thing that I was sent to try out was The Headright to try and help relieve that pain.
About The HeadRight
‘The HeadRight’ is a unique alternative pillow designed to relieve neck and back pain and correct Forward Head Posture (FHP). FHP is a serious condition resulting in damage to the spine and nervous system and is is caused by many of our daily forward head posture activities, which repetitively force us to use our head in a forward position. For example: pillows that are too high; computer monitors that are too low; backpacks, texting postures, and many other poor posture habits of our everyday activities. FHP has been associated with many painful health conditions including back pain, neck pain, headaches, spinal disc degeneration and more. ‘The HeadRight’ was developed by a chiropractor with over 35 years of clinical experience in treating back pain, neck pain and spinal related disorders. ‘The HeadRight’ connects 3 specific orthopedic supports to provide an extraordinary sleeping “pillow-system” that helps correct, and totally prevents, FHP as you sleep. It’s customized contoured supports pivot as a unit to turn and to follow all rotating sleep positions: from back to side to stomach; while always maintaining and providing the ideal re-modeling influence to help correct and totally prevent Forward Head Posture while supporting and improving spinal alignment.
As a result, The HeadRight’ reduces neuro-spinal stress which helps you to relieve neck and back pain while providing you with a healthier, more comfortable therapeutic sleep.
The first thought that comes to mind on this is how it is oddly shaped. Of course, this is meant to be this way and not your typical, comfy pillow as must people go for, including myself. Being 7 months pregnant it makes it hard for me to find a comfortable sleep position so using this pillow as intended didn’t work out so well for myself, BUT I did find a use that DOES benefit me at this time. You see, I could lay on it a few minutes, but would quickly get uncomfortable since with this pregnancy I have to lay/sleep on my left side 99% of the time. So even using my heating pad doesn’t work out for long these days.
Well since I’m always on the computer and blogging and such I figured why not give it a try as far as giving me some back support? I did it just to see and honestly, I find it very comfortable and gives some pretty darn good support! Like I said, I completely understand this isn’t how it was meant to be used and I had every intention to use it properly, but I just couldn’t get it to work for me with this belly and lack of being able to get comfortable (with or without the pillow). Now while this isn’t how it’s supposed to be used, I personally find it helps relieve back pains from sitting in the chair. Even at points when my back starts feeling a bit uncomfortable, when I get up from sitting and having the headright for support, by back isn’t murdering me. Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but this has definitely helped for my back pains.
Needless to say I definitely recommend this product. Of course I’m not able to fairly recommend it for what it’s intended for, but I do recommend it for my fellow pregnant friends who need some extra back support during their pregnancy while sitting! Your back will thank you!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
