Best Neck Pain Pillows to Buy in Germany 2022


Sleeping on the wrong pillow can literally be a pain in the neck.

Lack of support means an adult head weighing around 5.5kg can lie at awkward angles for hours at night when unconscious. Neck pain can only be the beginning of your problems: bad pillows can have a domino effect, causing headaches, stiffness, and even lower back problems.

While few hesitate when it comes to the perfect sleeping environment, figuring out which pillows offer the right level of support and comfort for you can be difficult – it’s such a personal thing.

In general, a pillow with a denser filling will provide a higher level of support. Things like memory foam can also help keep your head from rolling around when you catch your 40 wink. If you prefer the fluffy, cloud-like luxury of a feather fill, finding a pillow filled with both the material and soft down is ideal.

If you’re a side sleeper with broad shoulders, look for molded foam pillows that will keep your spine and head at a comfortable height. The soft yet firm nature of memory foam means it will conform to your shape, in this case your head and neck, supporting it rather than sinking under its weight.

When it comes to pillows, the choice is huge. To that end, we’re here to help you find your perfect pillow with a list of the best options for neck pain.

Emma Original Pillow


There are three layers of memory foam in Emma’s Original Pillow to ensure you get the rest you deserve: just add or remove them to get the combination that’s right for you.

It will keep its shape over time and the cover can be popped in the washing machine when it’s time for a clean.

TEMPUR Original Support Large Queen Pillow


Don’t disregard the unusual shape of this Tempur pillow – it’s carefully contoured laterally under the corner between the head and neck for perfect support of the area.

Mela The double pillow


Mela’s osteo-approved double pillow, which walks the tightrope between support and squeezing, could say goodbye to neck discomfort forever.

A 100% cotton cover keeps the pillow wonderfully cool to the touch, and there’s built-in support around the edges to help the pillow maintain its height without bulking you up.
