pillow recommended by Dr. Serne

When determining what pillow would be best suited for you, consider your own sleeping position.  Contoured pillows can be very useful if sized appropriately for your neck and back sleeping is your primary sleeping position.  NEVER purchase a contoured pillow if you ever find yourself on your side as it will create an inappropriate fulcrum on one side of the neck.

If you sleep on your side, your pillow should be firm enough not to allow the head to drop below the shoulder you are sleeping on.  Ideally, one should have their neck at 90 degrees to their shoulder.

Of course, stomach sleeping should be avoided for a number of biomechanical/postural reasons.

For 14 years, I have recommended one pillow brand- Therapeutica.   It allows you to sleep on your back and on your side, and they come in a variety of sizes.

Should you want to consider purchasing one, you need not be a patient of the clinic to do so.  If dispensed by a Chiropractor, they are often covered under extended health plans.

Have a great day,

    I’m interested in a petite therapeutic pillow and wondering:
    –what is their cost
    –do you have any demos available to examine
    –and finally, what it would cost to have one shipped to Nanaimo, Van Is.
    Thank you for your time. Darlene

    • Hi Darlene,
      My apologies for the delayed response! The cost is $120 and because the pillows are wrapped, it is easy to demo them. I’m not sure what the cost would be to ship to Nanaimo, but if you are interested in purchasing one I will certainly look into it.
      Thank you for your interest and again my apologies in the tardy reply!
