Align Right

When you see a chiropractor, you begin to understand the importance of proper posture throughout the day, but what about when you’re sleeping? While you sleep your brain sends messages to the rest of your body to heal and function, but if your pillow forces your head to stretch forward, your spinal cord will be pulled thin and these two important functions are not nearly as efficient.

Why is it that our pillows are square when our neck curve is round? Many people experience neck strain when they try to find a comfortable sleeping position and wake up with aches and pains. Their spine is not kept aligned and their neck is poorly supported, and that is why Align Right provides fitted cylindrical pillows for better sleeping posture.

You need uninterrupted sleep to get into the deep sleep and REM sleep cycles, meaning you need to be comfortable and avoid tossing and turning. When’s the last time you slept like a log? Align Right can help you wake up healthier and more refreshed! On the right you can see that a regular pillow pushes your head forward out of alignment from you shoulder, whereas below you see a fitted pilow that restores the neck curve from the front and side. It’s important to get the right size though, as an unfitted cylindrical pillow will also misalign your spine. Go to https://alignright.com/ to find your perfect fit!
