Pillows For Neck Pain
No more sleepless nights! Buy a pillow for neck pain online now!
One of the most common causes of neck pain is sleeping on a poor mattress and/or pillow. If you are not getting the right support and pressure relief that your body needs, your spine, hips, shoulders and neck will be affected.
Health professionals agree that the correct position for sleep is for your spine to be in neutral alignment – in effect your spine is parallel with the floor. When sleeping on your side, which is considered the healthiest sleeping position, your head needs to be supported at the correct height and your neck is not tilting up or down. You should also check that your shoulders and hips are benefitting from some pressure relief from a well-designed mattress. For back and tummy sleepers, a pillow with a low profile will help keep your head from tilting and causing pressure on your neck.
We will always recommend a Contour Pillow for best support.
A contour neck pillow is designed to accommodate the natural contours of the head, neck and in certain cases the shoulders. They are often called pillows for neck pain and are usually higher at one side and drop in the centre, creating an indentation where the head rests. This contour shape gives greater support under the neck than a classic shaped pillow, as well as comfortable positioning of the cervical vertebrae (the neck part of the spine). A contour neck pillow should provide support for the neck and head whilst assisting the body to achieve a neutral spine.
Whether you suffer from any neck complaints, or just want the best pillow for neck pain to keep your neck healthy, our pillow range comes in a variety materials including: Memory Foam, Latex & Gel:Memory Foam Pillows
All of our pillows come in different comfort densities and heights to suit every body frame.

The best pillows for neck pain in Australia
Thanks to our modern lifestyles, our necks are already strained when we work at computers with poor posture or constantly check our phones. Unfortunately, poor mattresses and unsuitable pillows can contribute to the problem when we sleep, and the cycle continues.
Luckily, a specially designed pillow for neck problems can help to relieve neck pain and soreness and help you get a better night’s sleep.
What are neck pillows?
Neck pillows help you sleep in a neutral spine position, which means your spine is parallel to the floor. In other words, they prop the base of the neck up. By doing this, they ease the tension and pressure that commonly causes neck pain, and support the spine, hips and shoulders at the same time.
The best pillows for sore necks
At Pillow Science, our goal is to help our customers get healthier, more restful sleep. We consult physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and other back care professionals to make sure our pillows have the most ergonomic designs.
Based on scientific research, contour pillows are the best pillows for neck problems.
These pillows are designed to accommodate the natural curves of the head, neck and, in certain cases, the shoulders. They’re generally higher on the sides and drop down in the centre, which is where the head rests.
With this design, this pillow for neck pain offers more support under the neck than a classic shaped pillow. It also positions the cervical vertebrae (i.e. the curve of your neck) in a comfortable way and helps to correct muscular issues. Like all neck pillows, contour pillows cradle the neck and head while assisting the body to achieve a neutral spine.
Adjustable pillows are also great for those who aren’t sure which pillow is the best for their spine. They can adjust the fill level until they reach a neutral cervical spine, and the base of the neck is supported.
Types of pillows to avoid
If you suffer from neck pain or soreness, avoid pillows that don’t support the contours of your neck properly during sleep, especially if you tend to move around a lot overnight.
Although sleeping without a pillow might be comfortable for tummy sleepers, it’s generally not recommended for those with neck pain. It makes it harder to maintain the natural curve of your spine and stay aligned, putting more pressure on your neck.
Why your sleep position matters
Health professionals agree that the correct position for sleeping is for your spine to be in neutral alignment — meaning it’s parallel to the floor. Ideally, you want to sleep on your side or back and avoid sleeping on your stomach as much as possible.
When sleeping on your side, your head needs to be supported at the correct height so your neck doesn’t tilt up or down, which is why pillows for neck soreness work well.
You can also browse our range of pillows for side-sleepers, back sleepers and tummy sleepers. Our tummy sleeper pillows feature a low profile to prevent your head from tilting and putting unnecessary pressure on your neck.
