Posted by Stephanie on 13th Mar 2020
A wedge pillow may not be something most are familiar with. You likely won’t find them in most physical big box stores that sell pillows, and may only have seen them in a medical supply store.
It is only recently that wedge pillows have integrated memory foam into their design, and have become more desirable by the masses due to the comfort and ailment relief they provide. Acid reflux is an unsavory way to wake up from needed sleep, and sleeping an angle helps this cumbersome woe from occurring. A wedge pillow slightly elevates the head, shoulders, and torso to prevent this from happening. When the upper body is elevated, gravity makes it less likely for stomach contents to come back up into the esophagus.
Acid reflux is not the only ailment a wedge pillow can assist in soothing. Using a wedge pillow can also help alleviate the side effects of sleep apnea. People who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), in which breathing stops periodically during sleep, often benefit from sleeping in a semi-upright position. It's believed elevating the head and upper torso keeps the airways open, which in turn helps to prevent disruptions in breathing. Sleeping at an incline benefits sufferers of this condition so that they can sleep uninterrupted throughout the night, as well as relieving the anxiety of gasping for breath.
Wedge pillows aren’t just for those that have medical conditions. They are also used by people who are simply looking for a more comfortable way to relax.
