A good night's sleep can do wonders for our minds and bodies. However, it can be difficult to get comfortable if you struggle with aches and pains - especially in your neck and shoulders.
Specialty pillows, like the Mkicesky Cervical Pillow, have been designed to help position our bodies in a way that maintains our natural spinal cervical curve (the atlas vertebrae located at the base of the skull). Damaged cervical curve can cause a handful of painful problems that can make our day-to-lives uncomfortable and prevent us from doing the things we love — including sleeping!
SHOP IT: Amazon, $58 (originally $80)
What is it?
The Mkicesky Cervical Pillow is an ergonomically-deigned pillow with a memory foam core that promotes spinal cervical alignment that can help you get a better night's sleep. The pillow's unique design features a hollow space for your head that helps alleviate pressure on the neck and spine. Whether you're someone who sleeps on their stomach, side or back, you can position the pillow to suit your sleep style and get a better night's rest.
Mkicesky's hypoallergenic pillows feature a five second memory foam rebound and a pillowcase that should be removed washed before your first use -but don't wash the actual pillow!
What people are saying
The Mkicesky Cervical Pillow has earned more than 4,000 five star ratings on Amazon from shoppers who have called it the "miracle pillow."
"I would never have believed this pillow could have provided me with such relief!" one Amazon shopper said. "From the first night I tried it, I was a believer as soon as I woke up. I'm, not a small guy, I'm a bodybuilder and have very wide shoulders which puts me in a very awkward position for being a side sleeper. This took away the headaches and pain I woke up with on a daily basis with for almost a year. I cant not say enough positive things about this pillow. It might not be the fix you are looking for but for me it was a life saver!"
"This is the perfect pillow. I have back issues and always wake up having a stiff neck and back stiffness, but using this pillow for the last few night have be just splendid," another wrote. "I've paid twice as much for a pillow from Sleep Country and theirs doesn't compare to this one. I'm a registered nurse who always has stiffness after my shift and has also had a MVA that has doubled my pain and stiffness. My next step is buying one for my son."
Some shoppers have noted that the cervical pillow is particularly firm and for longevity purposes, it's a good idea to invest in pillow protectors to prevent your pillow from absorbing sweat or oils from your head.
If you're looking to try an ergonomic pillow or trade-in your current pillow for something new, the Mkicesky Cervical Pillow might be for you. At its sale price, it's considerably more affordable than other designs — and with thousands of reviews to back it up, it's a great time to take the plunge.
