Can The Arc4Life Pillow Help With My Arthritis?

Other terms for "Arthritis" are "degeneration" or "breakdown". Using the Cervical Traction Neck Pillow, you put the neck spine in alignment which will prevent that breakdown.

When things are out of alignment, it leads to pressure on nerves. When there is pressure on nerves, things breakdown quicker.

How do I know if I have arthritis? A simple X-ray will show you. There are other things besides alignment that contribute to arthritis such as a poor diet and lack of exercise but alignment and nerve pressure is the big one so do your best to put or keep the spine in place.

Does Arthritis just come with age? Not necessarily. If malpositions have been there - how long has it been? Age and level of degeneration tends to dictate how severe the arthritis will be.

"What Pillow Is Best For A Bulged Disc?"

The best pillow for neck pain from disc bulges is the Arc4life Cervical Traction Neck Pillow.

We must 1st align the spine. It should be straight up and down from the front or back, and have smooth flowing curves looking at it from the side. This will help the discs stay in place and pull back bulges as much as possible.

Traction will also work well because it basically separates those spaces where the discs are and where the nerves come off the spinal cord.

Also when one loses the normal neck curvature, all the muscles tend to shorten and tighten. We need to stretch that back out to help the neck hold normal alignment with some neck traction as well.

"My Goal Is To Have Perfect Health"

I think that is a great goal. When it's comes down to it, you really can't do anything without your health!

So what should I do?

First, make the decision to get healthy. Keep it on your mind and focus on that... Next, like many other things, you should write it down. And third, make a plan that you can start doing. Make changes to that plan when you need to.

An example may be to workout 5 days a week. Let's say that you can't get to the gym one particular day, have things at home you can work out with. Maybe have a plan in place to do an exercise you dislike if you don't follow your plan, etc.

Next, You see your Chiropractor regularly.

And third, you eat out less. This way you know exactly what you are getting...

"My Neck Still Hurts?"



I've tried everything but my neck is still hurting! I slept good, went to my chiropractor, you name it, I've done it?

Sometimes we just need more time, and sometimes we are doing something that aggravates it and don't know it!

I have found the tri-sectonal hot and cold pack to be real helpful. I like it because it can just sit on your shoulders. I use the heat in the morning when it's cooler and the ice pack later on when it's warmer.

I actually keep a cold one in the freezer and another in the cabinet I can heat up quicker.

We Are Going On Vacation, Should I Take The Pillow I Use At Home?



The quick answer to this question is: Yes! You don't want not enjoy yourself because you don't have your usual pillow.

For us, the whole family takes their own pillow. If you can't imagine sleeping without your usual neck pillow you may want to take it with you as well.

I know the hotel pillows will be comfortable but after a couple of nights bunching it under my neck, it gets old real fast.
