Dr. Roby Taylor Myers, Owner & Lead Chiropractor at East Coast Elite Chiropractic-Sports Performance & Rehab
I appreciate all the support over the last 2 years while setting up my new practice. I have had successful results with over 90-95% of my patients with disc injuries/ neck/ back pain in utilizing the DTS table as a stand alone treatment. I will be honest- it was a tough decision initially because of the financial investment/ commitment while I was starting practice. I am glad that I decided to integrate the DTS into my practice from the start because of the referrals and the wonderful response from my patients. Thanks again for all your help over the last 2 years and continued support.

Rolls & Traction Cushions
CHOOSING THE BEST NECK ROLL PILLOW
Roll pillows and bolsters are an ideal way to support your cervical spine or neck. This region of your body can develop painful conditions, such as pinched nerves, muscle strains, and tense ligaments. If you have poor posture, the neck roll can offer pain relief. Some cervical support products like the Original Bones™ NeckBone® Pillow offer a variation to the traditional design.
What Exactly Are Cervical Neck Rolls?
Cervical neck rolls are small, soft, and supportive cylindrical pillows designed to fit into the curve of your neck. They can be used while sleeping, exercising, or during rehabilitative therapy. Often used as positioning wedges by chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists, cervical rolls can also support the curve of your lower back, knees, armpits, elbows, or hips.
HOW CERVICAL PILLOWS HELP WITH NECK PAIN
Neck pain is often associated with strain and stress on the soft tissues that support the spine. Neck roll pillows offer direct and customized support to these areas. They relieve the pressure from the sore soft tissues and directly support the vertebrae while restoring the normal curvature of the cervical spine.
Neck roll pillows can be made from a variety of materials:
- Buckwheat: This is a type of grain that grows well without any chemicals. Buckwheat neck roll pillows are breathable, supportive, and free of plastics. For a comprehensive selection of quality buckwheat pillows, check out Mother Earth Pillows.
- Polyester Fiberfill: Poly-filled neck rolls are a good option if you like soft pillows. It is made of synthetic fiber, often found in stuffed animals. One quality option is the affordable Cervical Roll by DMI.
- Memory Foam: Consisting mainly of low-resistance polyurethane foam (LRPu), this material conforms to your unique skeletal structure and gives you customized support without having to add or remove filling. Although not cylindrically shaped, the Glideaway® TruPhase Memory Foam Pillow is a great option.
- Inflatable: These pillows are similar to an inflatable armband for swimming. You pump in as much air as you prefer, and you can add or let out air at any time. This is a good option if you're traveling. You can deflate the pillow while in transit and refill it when you're at your destination.
BENEFITS OF USING A CERVICAL NECK ROLL PILLOW
Many neck roll pillows offer heating and cooling functions, which can reduce inflammation and painful areas deep in your soft tissue. Their shape provides direct support to your cervical spine, which keeps your vertebrae in proper alignment. If you suffer from neck pain, headaches, or shoulder strain, using one of these pillows might alleviate your symptoms.
Side effects from using a neck roll pillow, are extremely uncommon, offering a great alternative to prescription drugs or even prolonged use of over-the-counter pain relievers. You can combine its support with stretching and strengthening exercises recommended by your physical therapist and anti-inflammatory medications recommended by your doctor. Many cervical pillows offer hypoallergenic filling material and have removable covers for easy laundering.
ALTERNATIVE USES FOR CERVICAL PILLOWS
In addition to using a neck roll pillow while seated, you can also use it as a bed pillow. If you knit, embroider or hand sew, the roll pillow can support your arm at the armpit or elbow.
They also make for great underarm support for side sleepers or use your neck roll pillow under your regular bed pillow for extra support.
Use it as a yoga bolster or armrest while working on your laptop. Since they’re portable, you can also take the cervical pillow with you on a plane, train, or boat.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a neck roll pillow?
Neck rolls are small cylindrical pillows that fit the curve of your neck and help relieve chronic neck pain while sleeping. Back sleepers are the ones that benefit most from a cervical roll and they usually pair it with a soft, flat pillow that supports their head.
What are cervical pillows filled with?
Core cervical rolls are made of precision-cut foam that ensures the right balance between comfort and support, while Core Jackson rolls are fiber-filled, with firmer support at the ends. Other neck rolls and pillows on the market are made of low-resistance memory foam or have a soft polyester, down, or latex filling.
What are the different types of traction cushions?
Traction cushions come in different shapes and sizes and can be used to support various body parts during lumbar or cervical traction. Trapezoid cushions support the lower limbs in a raised position to ensure a minimum load on the vertebrae, triangular cushions support the head, peak-shaped bolsters fit comfortably under the knees, and semi-cylindrical cushions support the cervical spine. Besides positioning, other traction cushions can be used as part of clinical traction devices, to protect the table and provide additional comfort during treatments. Cervical traction cushions like Core Apex Cervical Orthosis Premium are shaped so that they gently stretch the upper chest and anterior neck muscles, while comfortably supporting the upper thoracic spine. This can help relieve headaches and neck pain by firmly supporting the neck while placing it in mild traction, helping restore its natural curve and counteracting the detrimental forward head posture. You can also try a foam roller for the neck to relieve occasional pain, but it is best that you check with your doctor if your neck pain is chronic or severe.
What pillows do chiropractors recommend for side sleepers? Back sleepers?
If you are one of the roughly 60% of adults that sleep on their side, know that this sleeping position is one of the healthiest as it can improve spinal alignment and reduce back pain. However, you need the proper pillow to achieve this much-desired alignment. To make sure you keep your head, neck, and shoulders in a neutral position throughout the night, the pillow should be medium-firm and about 4 inches off the mattress. People with broader shoulders might need a higher loft, whereas petite ones would rest more comfortably with a lower one. Getting the right pillow firmness and height is not all there is — shape also matters, and side sleepers benefit mostly from pillows that have a semi-circular cutout to make room for the shoulder or a gusset that expands the pillow and gives it more structure.
Back sleepers can either complement mid-loft pillows with a slightly larger cervical roll or they can opt for a contoured orthopedic pillow that helps with any tension in the neck, upper back, and shoulders. Some pillows have a built-in cervical roll and a trapezoid or D-shaped cutout in the middle to better cradle the head. If you prefer to sleep on your stomach, you will need a soft pillow and a firm mattress, but it is best to avoid this sleeping position as it is the most harmful to the neck muscles and joints. Alternatively, you can try the M.A.T. Portable massage cushion with an attached face cradle for resting on your stomach or back for a few hours. While intended for at-home massages, this 3-piece system (face rest, pelvic tilt body cushion, and foot bolster), will provide much-needed comfort and relaxation by completely maintaining muscular-skeletal alignment.
What types of sleeping support can I use to relieve hip and knee pain?
The best knee support is a peak-shaped positioning bolster, but you can also tuck a neck roll pillow under your knees to relieve lower back pain or help recover from an injury when sleeping on your back. If you sleep on your side, you can put a NeckBone® pillow between your knees. It also helps to have an inflatable lumbar roll-around, to make sure you sleep comfortably when traveling.
