Instructions – How the Pillow Works
Sleeping on your back with The Knightsbridge Pillow®
Sleeping on your back creates the most consistent and natural support for your spine, preventing neck and back strain and enabling your muscles and tissues to completely relax.
Extra support from The Knightsbridge Pillow® helps reduce and, in some cases, eliminate snoring by lengthening the neck helping to open the airways. Additional benefits also include a reduction in both acid reflux and facial wrinkles.
Remove all three height adjusters so that the pillow is at its lowest in order to align the spine and neck as you lie on your back.
Sleeping on your side with The Knightsbridge Pillow®
The optimum position for the neck, shoulders and spine is achieved by sleeping on your side. The most common sleeping position, lying on your side helps prevent neck and back pain by elongating the spine, reducing acid reflux and decreasing snoring. Experts also recommend sleeping on your side if you are pregnant, particularly in the latter stages.
The height of the pillow should bring both your neck and shoulders into alignment with your spine. This neutral position prevents any strain being placed on the joints of the spine and the neck and shoulder muscles. If you have narrow shoulders start by using the pillow alone then add a single height adjuster if you need it. Those with broad shoulders will need more height adjusters inserted into the pillow, up to a maximum of three. Your head shouldn’t dip down towards the mattress, which compresses the neck and shoulders, nor tilt up and away from the mattress, which overstretches the neck.
Sleeping on your front with The Knightsbridge Pillow®
We do not recommend sleeping on your front. This position distorts the alignment of your spine increasing the likelihood of nerve compression.
Allow a few days to adjust to sleeping on your new Knightsbridge Pillow, particularly if you are not used to sleeping on a supportive pillow. During the first few nights you may want to experiment with the number of height adjusters to discover the most comfortable level of support for you.
