Give yourself the gift of a great night’s sleep thanks to the Apex Sleepwell Pillow

Apex Clinic Founder and Spinal & Headache Physiotherapy Specialist, Rebecca Nelson, discusses the Apex Sleepwell Pillow range, her very own specially designed orthopaedic pillow collection, clinically proven to reduce neck pain and headaches in the majority of cases.

Warning: the wrong pillow can have disastrous consequences

For more than 20 years I’ve been treating patients suffering from neck and shoulder pain, as well as headaches and migraines, with many of these people having disrupted sleep, due to their pain. It is uncommonly known that a poor soft or flat pillow can often increase or even trigger the onset of their neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches and migraines, arm pain, pins and needles or numbness in the hands and arms, and even vertigo or dizziness.

Winning the war against poor pillows

To combat the damage that poor pillows have on our spine, the Apex Sleepwell Pillow is my own range of orthopaedic pillows, uniquely designed in thickness and firmness to match individual needs of sleepers according to their build. Each pillow has been technologically innovated to include the latest high-density core, that – unlike other pillows on the market – runs throughout the pillow’s entire width. This central cores offers the exact level of support required to ensure the optimum sleeping position for a healthy, comfortable neck, while sleeping.

Prevention is always better than the cure

From children aged seven and adults who are fortunate enough to have never suffered neck pain or headaches, the Apex Sleepwell Pillow is highly recommended to help prevent the onset of neck related pains, as prevention is always better than the cure. Sleeping on a pillow which is too soft or flat causes the neck joints to be compressed and placed under excessive load by the weight of the head. When lying down, the optimum neck position can be achieved by lifting the head slightly to an angle of between 30 to 45° with the horizontal. This allows the neck joints to open up and is physiologically the best sleeping position for your neck and spine.

Finding your perfect match

The Apex Sleepwell Pillow collection includes a range of pillow sizes so that you can find your perfect match. It’s essential that your pillow supports your body shape and size so that your neck is at the correct angle while you sleep. This is why the Apex Sleepwell range includes a pillow for everyone.

Our two pillow types are dependent on the height/thickness of the pillow. The H2 pillow is suitable for lightly built adults and teenagers or for those who don’t like their pillow to be too fat. The H3 pillow is for average sized people or for those who prefer a slightly fatter pillow.

Five star reviews for the Apex Sleepwell Pillow

“Goodbye marshmallow pillows! I have always like ‘marshmallow type’ pillows so when I was recommended the Apex pillow to help with a painful shoulder at night, I was not at all keen. I thought it would be far too hard, thus uncomfortable. However, in desperation I decided to give it a go and to my amazement I had my first good night’s sleep in ages. I have had the Apex pillow for well over a year now and can honestly say it has made a real difference to my neck and shoulder. Definitely money well spent.” Julie Handley, Belfast.

“I have had this pillow for a year now. I bought it in Apex and it is an excellent product! No stiff necks, soreness or otherwise, waking up in the morning the pillow has cleared it. Feels nice and firm. Highly recommended.” Myles Gray, Newry.
