Anyone who has neck or back issues and are in need of a wonderful pillow, please try buckwheat pillows.I have had back and neck issues for years and have even gone through surgeries for stenosis on both locations.
These are the only pillows I will use now because I can form them how I need them. They can be a bit expensive, but worth every penny. Also, you can add or take away the buckwheat depending on how you like your pillow. Whether firm or soft or somewhere in between.
It is well worth a try. There are sellers all over the net. Just make sure the pillow comes with a zipper on one end so you are able to take the buckwheat out and wash the clothes part of the pillow. This will also allow you to adjust the firmness of the pillow.
I am not sure if they make them without the zipper or not.Good luck in finding the perfect pillow.
