If you suffer from migraines, then you know how problematic stress, poor posture, and lack of sleep can be with regard to triggering headaches.

Fortunately, there are a variety of bed pillows that not only help to provide proper migraine-preventing posture but also help to provide an incredible night's sleep.

Bed wedge pillow

One of the keys to perfect sleep posture is making sure that your neck maintains its proper alignment while you sleep.

A bed wedge pillow is shaped to do just that. The sloped surface allows you to position the lower end at the top of your head as the higher end supports your neck, maintaining proper spine alignment and preventing spinal pressure that can trigger migraines. The Xtreme Comforts microfiber bed wedge pillow provides structured support of a bed wedge pillow with the hypoallergenic benefits of microfiber.

Bamboo pillow

A bamboo pillow is another great option if you’re looking to prevent migraines. Bamboo pillows can be made entirely from bamboo, with shredded bamboo interiors, or with bamboo covers and filled with shredded memory foam. They are naturally cooling, lightweight, hypoallergenic and antimicrobial, providing a comfortable and sanitary surface so you can experience quality sleep. Bamboo pillows are also very durable, and high-quality bamboo pillows, such as the Xtreme Comforts 100% viscose bamboo fiber filling pillow, allow you to adjust the thickness of the pillow to tailor it to your needs.

Neck pillow

The neck support is critical while you are sleeping, as you already know. Sometimes, such as when you’re traveling or just trying to squeeze in a nap, you can’t always sleep while lying down or find a pillow to accommodate your needs. Neck pillows offer portability as well as the ability to easily support the base of your head and neck, keeping you comfortable and well-positioned during sleep. Often made from memory foam, they can easily conform to your postural needs.

Knee pillow

Most people only think about their head hitting a nice soft pillow while they’re trying to sleep, but if you suffer from migraines, especially if they are due to postural problems, then you would also appreciate the benefits of a knee pillow. A knee pillow helps to maintain proper hip positioning while you sleep, especially if you sleep on your side. By placing a knee pillow between your knees, you can achieve proper hip alignment which will help to avoid unnecessary pain that might trigger a migraine while also relieving the pain due to sciatica and pregnancy.

Lumbar support pillow

One of the reasons memory foam has become so popular is because it provides better support for the natural contours of the human body. However, given the multiple curves naturally found in the spine, extra support is often needed, especially in the lumbar area, or lower back area, while sleeping. A lumbar support bed pillow provides cushioning and support beneath your lumbar spine while you sleep, again helping to ensure the natural curvature of your spine and reducing stiffness, muscle tension, and promoting circulation that coincides with all around the spine health and can help to avoid triggering migraines.

There are a variety of other pillows designed for migraine sufferers, including cooling pillows, pillows filled with buckwheat hulls, and pillows filled with down, all to suit your possible preferences. It’s always good to try a pillow before you buy one, but now you have an idea of what characteristics make a great bed pillow for preventing migraines. The only question you have to answer now is, are you ready to purchase a pillow that will provide rest and prevent the pain?
