A good mattress and pillow is what you need to manage cervical spondylosis

You spend one third of your day asleep, which is why a good quality sleep is essential to prevent physical ailments, the most common being cervical spondylosis (C/S). Cold, stress, incorrect posture, a sedentary lifestyle and whiplash injury are just some of the factors triggering C/S pain.

A good mattress and pillow play an important role in ensuring the right posture when asleep.

Buying a mattress and pillow that give firm support to the neck is the right choice for managing the C/S problem and achieving  optimal pain relief.

As a general rule, a mattress should be relatively soft and made of memory foam or PolyGel®. These anti-bedsore materials prevent excessive pressure on the neck, reduce the onset of C/S pain and improve blood circulation and joint mobility.

The two Mollyflex mattresses featuring these properties are Memo Artic and Memo Deluxe Quilted. They feature an elastic, breathable layer of eco-sustainable water-based polyurethane foam (PolyGel for Memo Artic and Viscofoam Waterlily for Memo Deluxe Quilted) that keeps your body dry and prevents the formation of moisture in the mattress, which can affect joints and cause neck pain.

As for the mattress, the choice of the right pillow is essential to ensure optimal support to the neck area. To prevent the outbreak of pain in the morning, it is advisable to use an ergonomic pillow which ensures the right posture when asleep, like our Moontex Cervical or Moontex  Air-Cervical. They both feature an undulated shape designed specifically to give firm support to your neck and ensure the correct posture of your head in any position.
