Anti snoring pillow can be a quick and inexpensive solution. But there are some things you need to be aware in order to cushion it will fit your needs and your condition.
Some anti snoring pillow specialize in a ‘positional’ approach whereby the neck muscles are trained to keep the head at an angle sufficient to prevent the air passages from being blocked and therefore the start of snoring.
However before even deciding on anti snoring pillows of any type you should consider that many people who use them do not find that the snore pillow by itself is sufficient to stop the snoring and other anti snoring devices and treatments may need to be considered.
In some cases of more severe snoring where there is a marginal improvement and the snoring is caused by either allergies or a sinus problem what many sufferers have found is that an anti snoring nasal spray in combination with the anti snoring pillow will often see the snoring stop or be seriously reduced.
But let us just assume that out of all the anti snoring products that you are considering the ‘pillow’ seems to be the least obtrusive and in many cases the ‘cheapest’ alternative.
Choosing Anti Snoring Pillow
It’s human nature to try one of the cheapest alternatives first and see if that works and then go from there. The good thing is that prices can range from $20 to $50 and if it works then – Great!
OK so let’s start getting into a bit of detail about some of these pillows, what they’re made of and how they are supposed to work.
Commonly stop snore pillow is made of non-allergenic foam with a washable zippered cotton cover, fits standard and queen size pillow cases and is approved for sale as a medical device by the US Food and Drug Administration. This is a minimum standard that you should look for!
These anti snoring pillows are designed to provide extra support to the head and neck in order to improve alignment and should work whether the person is sleeping on their side, back, or stomach.
This allows for the maintenance of proper posture of the head and encourages snorers to sleep on their side rather than in any other position where the side position seems to be the most effective position that stops snoring.
I would point out though that the best result from anti snoring pillows are for mild cases to occasional snoring so if this where you condition is at then definitely go down the anti snoring pillow route first – it may be the cheapest and most effective alternative to try first!
