Pillows are the stuffing people use for sleep comfort. The quality and height of pillows directly affect the quality of our sleep. Especially the height of the pillow, many people are not easy to grasp, especially many people like to make the pillow higher, which is not good. Now let's talk about the impact of pillows that are too high.
Pillow too high will cause neck discomfort. Long-term use of high pillow lying position will cause the curvature of the cervical spine to become straight, lose the original curvature, cause cervical spine instability, and pull the nerves, blood vessels and muscles around the cervical spine and cause corresponding symptoms. Common There are neck pain, headache, tightness in the cervical spine and around the head, neck and shoulder pain and swelling; dizziness, dizziness, lack of clarity of mind, inability to concentrate, irritability, etc.
Slowly, if the curvature of the cervical spine becomes serious, it will develop into a recurve cervical spine and herniation of the intervertebral disc, resulting in aggravation of symptoms.
In addition to causing discomfort to the cervical spine, a pillow that is too high will also cause a series of injuries to blood vessels, nerves, muscles, ligaments, etc., back muscles and fascia will be stretched, as well as a series of symptoms such as soreness.
When the pillow is relatively high, the muscles and ligaments of the shoulder and neck will be subject to a relatively large pulling force. After a long time, congestion, edema and abnormal exudation will occur, causing local pain and soreness. When the muscles and ligaments are continuously stressed, it will adversely affect the stability of the joints of the cervical spine, resulting in lesions and abnormal curvature of the joints.
It can be seen that the height of the pillow is very harmful, so when we use the pillow, we should try to be moderate, neither high nor low, so as not to cause headaches, dizziness, and confusion.
