Pillows and the Chiropractor
Pillows are vital to a good night’s sleep. A good night’s sleep is crucial to your overall health and well-being. Finding a quality pillow can be a daunting and expensive process, but with the right information, it can be made much simpler.
The chiropractors at Schonhard Chiropractic address the question of a quality pillow on a daily basis. Finding a pillow to fit your individual needs is one of the main goals of the chiropractor. The correct pillow will not only aid in quicker results and recovery, but also will lead to less visits needed to the chiropractor.
The chiropractor will start by going through your case history to identify your specific needs. The case history will cover any previous traumas to the body specific to the cervical spine (neck), as well as any sports-related injuries, whiplash, or surgery. Additionally, sleep posture will be discussed. This is then followed by a thorough chiropractic examination of the spine. The chiropractor will perform specific tests, such as your range of motion to better understand your individual needs. If appropriate, after spinal examination the chiropractor may take spinal x-rays of the neck. The spinal x-rays can be a valuable tool that allows the chiropractor to be very specific in their diagnosis and treatment.
