“Memory foam can alleviate pain by relieving painful pressure points,” says Dr. Kathy Gromer, sleep specialist for Minnesota Sleep Institute in Minneapolis. “However, it can’t be used for patients experiencing sleep apnea or other sleep-breathing conditions.”
When you’re lying in contour memory foam pillow, the body’s heat helps to mold the particular points, supporting the body’s curves and natural lines. This way, it helps alleviate pain and thus promotes more restful and comfortable relaxation, overall, transforming the way you sleep.
Many side sleepers can feel uncomfortable upon waking up. This situation is due to the lack of support in the neck. You’ll notice a feeling when you wake up like you’re raising your shoulders all night to counterbalance the space between your mattress and neck, which is not good. However, contour memory foam pillows are designed to nestle into your neck and provide adequate support, so your shoulders don’t need to do it.
