The Best Type of Pillow for Sleeping for Neck Pain, Pinched Nerve & Herniated Disc – Dr Mandell
One-third of our life is in the bed sleeping. If you're using the wrong type of pillow for your neck, you will be irritating nerves causing muscle spasm, decrease range of motion, and pain.
Hi.. i was trying this front flip. was progressing prety well in 4 days but today while practicing, i sliped my foot and landed on my head. now i can’t move my neck easily. it really hurts. can anyone please tell me what happened to.me!?? is it a cracked neck or neck sprain?? :(.. please some one reply fast i m really tensed…:(… i don’t feel any pain when my neck is at rest, i feel pain only when i rotate it to wards sides or back..
+motivationaldoc doctor please tell an approx time for healing for the most common sprains…
You can do this a few times a day and depending upon your injury, will depend upon how long it will take to repair.
+motivationaldoc thanks doctor for the streching exersices.. can you please tell me how many times a day should i do that stretching? and how long will it take for the back pain to go completely?
This should help you.
Dr. Please tell us how to identify the right height of a pillow as everbody is different
anyone have his number
Is it weird if I’m watching this at 10 years old..? Well it probably is.
Can you recommend a specific brand of pillow for side sleepers?
There is no specific one. Need to try what works best for you.
if you have forward head posture wouldn’t it be better to not use neck support on your back so you can tuck you chin a bit and let gravity pull things back. with that problem it seems that people have much curve in their neck to the point that if they stand with their back against a wall is to month arch
I woke up with my neck hurting when i turned to the right and back it hurt and i had it for a day so far…can it heel on its own? And how long will it take to heel?
Use ice and rest. Light stretches
I like all of your videos, I feel you give correct informations 🙂
Hi doctor , hi Doctor , hi hi , bye bye

Thanks hope it will help with the pain!
I remembered I slept on a hard pillow and my neck was a pain.
Thanks for simple, direct, easy to understand videos.
Your welcome Chris
can you make video about proper way to lay in bed while on laptop or watching movie? thank you doctor
Thank you very much i have shoulder pain and neck pain from wrong sleep way i checked your videos and find the right way to sleep on my side but i still have the pain in my shoulder how i can stretch it or get ride of it if anyone knows pls tell me i need help and thank you
little pain is reduced doctor.Now i am able to my neck down
I use a small travel pillow to fill that space he is talking about. When I turn from side to side the pillow moves but I’m so used to it that I just put the pillow back in the space between my neck and the pillow.
what brand name-type of pillow do you recommend sir?
There is no one brand. Find a pillow that keeps your neck in line and supportive
best pillow i tried so far is FlowPIllow. designed to support head and neck in neutral position. all night. it’s little expensive but well made, and its worth it.
