The Only Orthopedic Neck Pillow Designed to Relieve Symptoms of a Pinched Nerve.
No matter the cause, pain caused by a pinched nerve (cervical radiculopathy) in the neck is exhausting. Through proper use, MyJet Luxopedic Pillow comfortably decompresses joints and restores the lordotic curve, which is necessary for relieving the symptoms of a pinched nerve in the neck. Our patented Advanced Bracing Technology allows the user to comfortably lay their head back at the proper angle needed for recovery while also providing the ability to add as little or as much support as is necessary to begin feeling immediate relief.
What are some of the causes of Pinched Nerves in the Neck?
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is a prevalent cause of a pinched nerve in the neck. This occurs when the vertebrae, which cushion your discs and help protect your spine, become worn out over time due to age, trauma, or repetitive activities of daily living like texting. As the cushioning breaks down, it can lead to out of place discs that push on the nerves around them, causing nerve pain and other symptoms like numbness or tingling in one area of your body.
Poor posture is another major contributor to pinched nerves in the neck. It causes unnecessary strain on your muscles and joints by placing extra weight and pressure on them over time, which can eventually compress your nerves. Slouching or hunching over when sitting for long periods leads to an unhealthy alignment that requires more effort for regular movements, such as turning your head or lifting something overhead.
A rear-end car accident or similar event that causes rapid acceleration and deceleration of the head can cause whiplash, which is a leading cause of pinched nerves in the neck region. The force from this type of trauma can potentially tear ligaments and damage vertebrae enough to where it becomes misaligned and compresses nearby nerves with each movement you make with your neck or head.
Another condition caused by wear and tear over time (or trauma), herniated discs are essentially weakened discs that have shifted in position enough to press against together adjacent nerves as they attempt to move through normal pathways between vertebrae on either side of them. Symptoms such as pain and burning sensations may increase if you’re stretching those areas regularly with yoga or exercise during an existing problem like this one.
What are Bone Spurs? Bone spurs, or osteophytes, are bony projections formed due to an aging spine or joint instability. While these bone spurs often remain harmless, they can sometimes lead to neck pain and stiffness. Cervical bone spurs specifically occur in the body's cervical spine or neck area.
