Specialty pillows: D-Core Fiber Support Cervical Pillow

PillowSpecialty pillows like the D-Core Fiber Support Pillow provide appropriate cervical support with a unique D-shaped center that supports the head and a neck-supporting lobe to help restore the natural curved shape of the neck and upper spine.


·         Fiber support pillow for neck pain relief.

·         100% polyester fiber.

·         White.

·         Fits in standard pillowcase.


Cervical support pillows can assist with neck muscle and joint strains and sprains, tension headaches, whiplash injuries, arthritis, morning hand stiffness and swelling, temporomandibular disorders,     stiffness, and in some cases it can also help with snoring. Additionally, the fiber material provides comfort and support. Specialty pillows made with fiber can provide approximately the same consistent support as those made with foam but with much more comfort. People who have commented on this product on the manufacturer’s website say such things as “I have enjoyed my pillow a great deal. It arrived rather quickly and was packaged well. I have an arthritic neck and this pillow helps me sleep more comfortably. I recommend;” “I love this pillow; it has been a lifesaver. I have three issues with my neck. Using this pillow and sleeping on my back has solved the problems.”


Conversely, another user said that a replacement pillow they ordered was “not nearly as firm as before and the filler is softer and not as dense.” To which the manufacturer responded that “The D-Core Pillow hasn't had any substantive changes in many years. Each one is filled and weighed to meet spec in a climate controlled, humidity controlled environment.” It is understandable that even though all specialty pillows are made equal, not all users may have the same experience with them. For example, another user – this time on Amazon – said that “the sides were way too firm to sleep on. It was like sleeping on a brick. To soften up the pillow on the sides, I placed some dumbbell weights on the sides for two weeks. The sides of the pillow are now softer with more compliance and the pillow works great.” Ask your chiropractor about the best cervical pillow for your particular case.
