I have cervical and spinal stenosis......
Very fast shipping. Excellant transaction. High Quality product. I have cervical and spinal stenosis and have had a neck fusion. Got the best nights rest since I first developed this medical condition. Does what it says as described. Absolutely love it. Thanks for your awesome service. Thanks for a good nights rest.
The pillow arrived sooner than I anticipated. The quality of the product is exactly as described in the advertising. I would recommend this pillow to other friends and family. It does take a little time to become accustomed to the neck roll, but there is no problem with the small delay in enjoying the benefits of the pillow.
I use the traction side while I fall asleep at night...
Wow. This pillow is fantastic. I use the traction side while I fall asleep at night and then for about 5 min after I wake up. I had not been able to sleep on my back for years - but I can with this pillow. And it is comfortable too! I have not really gotten the hang of side sleeping with it as I have another pillow I am already used to.
Was worried because it is so firm compared to my beloved feather pillow - but after one night, I woke up pain free from the neck down for the first time in a year. I can turn my neck freely and without pain, and my shoulders and hips don't hurt! I pray this lasts - I am a huge fan. Bought another one for my husband today.
5/5 This pillow will replace all others for me
I'm really glad I ordered this pillow. I have become accustomed to it after only a few nights. It's comfortable in any sleeping position! It has helped with my neck discomfort during my waking hours...
Bye bye morning neck stiffness!!!
I bought one of these in 2009 and have used ...
I bought one of these in 2009 and have used it every day since then. I take it with me when I travel - except to Hawaii :) I have just gotten my second one as I decided over 5 years was all I could expect from a pillow. It solved my neck problems back in 09 and when they started to return I decided it was time to replace it. It is worth every penny!
I could hardly walk...
I was in such pain in my neck, my shoulder and arm and lower right back. I could hardly walk and the pain made me so sick i could not move, sit or anything. The first night i used it I thought this is weird humm not sure. Anyway well i will just use it for an hour or so but, i fell asleep on it an woke up pain free. All my pain was nearly gone. just a bit of neck and shoulder pain. The other thing i had was a numb thigh on the left leg , never expecting that to dissapear I was shocked. I could finally feel my leg before an now I have feeling back, I had that for nearly 12 years. A burning numb pain that would come an go. Well needless to say it was gone. I slept better too. I used to be all over the place when I slept an now I sleep in one spot all through the night. I got rid of the tem-perpeic pillow I spent a small fortune on an it did nothing. I love this pillow. Maybe it doesn't work for everyone , but I have to say I don't want to go anywhere without this pillow. It works and I could not be happier. My daughter bought one and it helped her and she told me about it. I bought it right away hoping it would help an it did more then I expected it would. I love it ! Hope when I need a new one they are still selling them. Or maybe I should just stock up now. Buy two you won't be sorry!
this product is a God-send :)
5 out of 5...
This pillow has worked wonders on my pain from a herniated disc in the neck. It's been about a couple of months and pain is completely gone when using this pillow. I had to use other pillows while traveling over Christmas and my neck pain came back. Used this pillow for a couple of nights and pain is gone. I would definitely recommend this pillow. I can't belie how well it has worked for me.
Very Glad I ordered This Pillow....
I was nervous about ordering such an expensive pillow [ arc4life cervical linear traction neck pillow extra firm ], but I am very pleased. I had used a "fruit" core pillow by another company for over 20 years, but found they were no longer helping ease pain. I had a couple days of stiffness from the change in pillows, but since then have experienced significant pain relief. Most mornings I wake up pain free, and the few times I have had pain it has been significantly less than I had been experiencing. Iny opinion, this pillow is worth the $$. I sleep on my side and back. When sleeping on my side, the traction "y" shape helps keep by neck from falling backwards into the "O" shape, which I think was a problem with the other pillow. It would pinch my nerves, resulting in pain. The head area for lying on the side is also larger, which is more comfortable. The traction provided while lying on my back feels good. In my opinion, this pillow is worth the $$. I ordered the standard size; I am 5'9", but relatively small-boned for my size. A smaller person would likely do better with a smaller size.
Learning that the support pillows we used for many years had been d/c, I was in search of something new. These are great! I can tell when my pillows begin to wear out (usually after about 2 years) because my back hurts and my neck always feels like I need to stretch it. This pillow eliminated all that within a few days. I love the various options for support and the centralized flattened area to keep pressure off my ear. Some pillows make the back of my ear hurt, but these do not.
I have already had a Spinal Fusion..
I was looking for a special pillow to help with my neck pain.I have already had a spinal fusion and was told I needed another but I wanted to try the Arc4 life Gravity Neck pillow and it has helped to reduce pain and increase length of sleep.
I have tried many pillows
I have had my pillow for about two weeks and I am very pleased. When I lay my neck down it stays in the same place and supports it through the night. I am realizing that I might want to change sides, to find just the right spot, but how great that is, that you have that option. I have tried many pillows, to find the right one, and took them all back. I did not consider, for one minute, to return this. It is great. Try it, you will agree with me.
I had Neck Surgery For A Bulging Disc In My Neck
I love this pillow! Several years ago I had neck surgery for a bulging disc in my neck. Recently, I started having pain again and didn't want to have surgery again. Since I started sleeping on my traction neck pillow my pain has subsided. It did take several nights to get use to the pillow, but be patient... It really does work.
the headaches I was having from my neck problems have not...
This Medium pillow is "standard" and fits in regular pillow cases. I read other reviews where the filling was low, but mine was moderate and not too firm or too soft. I am using the side that is opposite from the "traction side," and it cradles my head nicely. I have been using the pillow for approximately 3 weeks now, and I'm having slight neck aches from using something so conforming. However, the headaches I was having from my neck problems have not returned since using the pillow. I believe my body is still adjusting to the change. I am a back sleeper, primarily, so that's the position the aching is coming from. When I sleep on my side, this pillow is nice and soft. I would recommend it to anyone who can afford to pay for a gamble. I can't imagine this will work for everyone, but I believe it's a good product for those who need this kind of stability. I am going to continue to use it. It's nice not to have the debilitating headaches.
Highly Recommend This Pillow
I have suffered from headaches and neck pain every morning for a few years now. I have tried many types of pillows, water pillow, memory foam pillow, none of which seemed to cradle my head and neck properly for side sleeping. Since I have used this pillow the pain has subsided and the headaches have gone away! Highly recommend this pillow!
I Have No More Headaches..
I bought this pillow for myself 2 years ago because I have a bone spur on my neck and had headaches constantly. Between regular visits to a great Chiropractor and this pillow( which I've used every single night for 2 years) I have no more headaches. Has held up great for me, still very supportive, I just bought 1 for my husband. Love it!!!!
I have arthritis in my neck and 2 fused vertebrae
I have arthritis in my neck and 2 fused vertebrae. I've been waking up really uncomfortable and most of the time with a headache that required medication.I read the directions, 1st night after about an houri couldn't really get to sleep, I had to turn it over. After that it was marvelous. I'll never give it up. It's just as comfy on my side. No stiff neck and no headache in the 6weeks I've been sleeping with it. Thank all you folks at Arc4life..
I have the Onset of Osteoporosis...
So far this pillow is doing what it says. I was in a car accident when I was 19 and did some damage to my neck and back. I have the onstart of osteoporosis, at a young age and even though it can't be stopped, I can do things to slow the process down. From time to time, I suffer neck and shoulder pain and it can be very bad at times - to the point of not being able to move my head very far. I have tried many many things and many many pillows, with some causing further damage. The first night, I tried the side without the v support and I slept and woke feeling a bit better. The next night, I tried the v-shaped side and slept like a baby and woke feeling great! I am very pleased! Now granted, I just got this pillow and I know things can change....so, with that being said....if I find any negative happenings with this pillow, I will write an update. If you do not see any updates - then I am still thrilled - sleeping great and NO PAIN!!!
I have not awakened with a headache since sleeping with this pillow.
Finally, I'm not ending up crunched like a pretzel ! 5/5
This pillow cradles your head and neck in the proper alignment, which is critical for preventing further damage to already damaged spines. The area it works with is the cervical spine, respectively. If you are a restless sleeper and often wake up feeling mangled, you will find that this pillow is for you. When you sleep on this, it holds the position of your head in a more neutral and natural way, thus saving your neck - literally. I keep the plastic that it came in on the pillow to prevent my hair products and freshly-showered hair from messing up the fabric. It also wipes off easily and prevents odor formation. Perfect product for me at this time!
Wow! Buy without hesitation. Ire ad reviews and thought this would take an adjustment periods, but this pillow with its unique design was exactly what my sore neck was asking for. I abandoned my old beloed pillow and can't wait to sleep on this pillow every night. Love It!!!
Wake Up Rested and No Stiff Neck
I have always been a bit of a pillow snob. I've used high-end down pillows for years. Recently, I started waking up with a really stiff neck and back. I was also waking up and having to readjust throughout the night. At the recommendation of the therapist I saw for my neck and back pain, I ordered one of these pillows. I was skeptical -- I couldn't imagine enjoying sleeping on anything other than down. Well let me tell you -- I am a convert. I am a back and side sleeper and this pillow has allowed me to enjoy a solid 8 hours of sleep a night without waking up. And when I do wake up, I'm not only rested, but my back and neck are no longer stiff. I just ordered another one for my husband.
...I Knew It was the Good One...
HI, Thank you for the info. I was a bit premature when I e-mailed you. The minute I put my head on the pillow, I knew it was the good one. I got up this morning, and no neck my neck and shoulder feel great. I probably will order another (as an extra soon). Thanks so much for ALL YOUR HELP! Angela
Best Pillow I have Ever Owned
I have chronic neck problems resulting from spending 8hrs+ a day on a computer.
I admit, I was skeptical reading the reviews, but now I am joining the ranks. This is the best pillow I have ever owned!
When I received the pillow, I had been in much pain and unable to move my neck for several days. After reading the directions which stated to gradually introduce yourself to the pillow, I used the traction side for 2 hours on the first night. I woke up the next morning and my neck was a bit better.
On the second night, I used it for 4 hrs on the traction site, and turned it to the support side for the rest of the night. I did the same for the third night, and the next morning, the pain was totally gone.
This pillow is extremely comfortable for back and side sleeping. I HIGHLY recommend.
Wonderful pillow. Great for side or back sleeping. Been looking a good pillow for years. I probably will order another one.
BlissFul Sleep !
Bought this for my husband and it's the most comfy pillow he has ever slept on! I stole it for one night and wow! I have never slept so well! He finally bought me one, too and my neck feels wonderful. I woke up w/a stiff neck and a headache in the morn. from my old shapeless pile of cotton. Now I sleep in absolute bliss! Thank you Arc4life for making me sleep so soundly! Can you make a mattress too? :)
Best Pillow Ever !
I have had really bad neck problems since I was about 25. I have tried several pillows and none of them helped. I have been to the chiropractor and spent thousands of dollars on treatments. Again it was temporary relief but not permanent. I had a few hesitations about this pillow when I ordered it. (Was it going to work? This is a lot of money for another decorative pillow.) But I ordered it and it arrived fast. I was so excited to use the first night. And it turns out my neck pain was gone, even if you don’t sleep in the middle of the pillow you won’t wake up with neck pain. I no longer go to the chiropractor and my pain is gone for good. I feel like a new person, this pillow really has changed my life. THANK YOU!
I bought the Thera cane several years ago and I have turned to it many times to relieve back pain and to be able to reach knotted up muscles or trigger points
Halo cervical rejuvenator
This is very helpful for patients who have head and neck dysfunction due to chronically misplaced use of head especially in the use of computers or other apparatus with the head down or reading and writing. Using it with exercises can significantly alter cericothoracic pain.
The Best Pillow !
This is by far the best pillow I have ever owned. I have a herniated disc in my neck and my C1 is out of place as well. I laid on it for about 30 minutes the day I got it and was fine. I slept on it the same night and woke up feeling amazing, no neck pain whatsoever. I generally use the side for support, if my neck is especially sore I will use the traction side for about 30 minutes before I go to sleep. I have purchased probably 3 pillows in the last 12 months and they all caused more pain (this includes memory foam). SO bottom line, this pillow is amazeballs. Highly recommend!
5/5 It Does WORK!!! [arc4life traction pillow]
I recently was diagnosed with a ruptured cervical disc. As part of my initial conservative approach I purchased this pillow and with proper exercise, medication and patience I was able to get through it without surgery. I am not sure people who do not have neck pain would find this pillow particularly comfortable, but if you are uncomfortable at night with cervical arthritis it may be of substantial benefit. I still use it even though my pain is gone and find that I am sleeping through the night and waking up comfortable.
Best Pillow Ever !!
I've tried several different neck pillows, and this is the first one that really does what it's supposed to do.
Great Pillow !
5 out of 5 Stars !! I have had this pillow for over a week now and love it. I had been trying many different pillows from down, memory foam, cervical, regular... but was just not sleeping comfortably tossing and turning all night and waking up stiff in the morning. I'm sleeping so much better and no longer stiff in the morning. I'm so happy I found this pillow!
i have major neck problems that will only be solved by surgery. I bought the Arc4life Traction pillow after researching for several days and reading many reviews. Before buying this pillow I could not sleep on my back & had trouble sleeping on my side. I now go to sleep with ease on my back using the traction side which really does "pull" on you neck releasing pressure on impinged nerves. When I wake up later at night I flip it over and use the side sleeping feature and wake up in the morning without pain. It is impossible to not find a comfortable position to readily fall asleep on. The bonus is that it is very well made. It certainly isn't cheap but the cost is well worth it.
I showed it to my brother-in-law and he bought one. He does not have a neck problem but was always complaining of not being able to get comfortable going to & sleeping through the night. He called me to say that he could not believe how comfortable it was and that he was able to sleep through the night.
Finally, The pillow arrived sooner then promised, was properly packaged, and came with instructions on how to use its design features
I still can't believe it! - 5 Golden Stars
I had a triple fusion done on my neck a few years ago and have slept with this 'nest' of pillows array ever since which worked okay until I would turn over and one of them would shift. Then I'd have to wake up and re-stack everything and then I'd be wide awake and cranky. This pillow is kind of a miracle, an EXPENSIVE miracle but at this point I have to say it's worth every penny! I've had it for over a month now and actually have nights where I barely wake up when I turn over because the pillow just seems to re-position your head/neck back to the correct position. I have a soft jersey pillow cover on which I think is essential to that you can 'feel' the indent for your head correctly. ( and better for wrinkles ; ) Even at this price, I'm going to order a couple more, one for my husband and a couple for inventory just in case they ever stop making it!! It's THAT good.
Love my MEDIUM Arc4Life Gravity Neck Pillow!!!!
This one is the large one. I got the MEDIUM one about a year ago, which is standard size. I actually bought two for my king size bed. They're perfect. For those who said that they find the large one to be too big, the MEDIUM one will probably be great, as it is the same size of a standard pillow. I would recommend buying the MEDIUM one. I absolutely love my pillow, which I have had for almost a year now. I used to always have to rearrange my pillow and punch it to build up the fluff where I wanted it to be and such while I was sleeping, but now I never need to do anything but rotate the pillow to the angle that feels best at the moment. One side is a bit firmer than the other, and I love them both at different times. It is a truly amazing pillow and worth every penny. My man is just about six feet tall, and he loves the pillow as well (again, we both have the MEDIUM one, which is the same size as a standard pillow). Also, he frequently folds the pillow(s) to sit up a bit while watching television in bed, and the pillows always retain their shape without creasing after he unfolds them! (Amazing!) I do recommend buying covers for them to protect your investment. A+++++
Recommended by my physical therapist. 5 STARS
Have had pinched nerves in my neck for several months. Now that the pain is gone, I am trying to get some strength back in my neck muscles. I want to be able to where a helmet and go snowmobiling again, so my physical therapist recommend I wear it while doing my neck exercises. Also helps when I have a migraine. The only thing I dont like is the smell of the material, but I have gotten used to it.
I have a C5 and C6 disk protrusion that leaves my hands numb in certain fingers. I constantly wake up at night with my arms fallen asleep. It disrupts my sleep leaving me very tired at work during the day as well as leaving my arms and hands numb especially my right hand, as I continue with my work day which is all on a computer. I bought this pillow after reading reviews and much research. I was very annoyed it cost $75, however after three weeks of using it my hands have not fallen asleep once and I have not had numb hands at work. I am very happy with this product. I am a side sleeper that turns on my back during the night. I have a lot of support from the pillow on my side and when I unconsciously turn to my back during the night, my neck lands right into the middle, supported by the traction section of the pillow. I awake sometimes stiff because the pillow causes my neck muscles to be a tade tight, but to have the pillow stop my hand and arm numbness and let me sleep though the night, is a miracle of its own. I do not suffer from neck pain yet, but my cervical pathology does cause my hands and elbows to hands to go numb and tingley, and this pillow has stopped the night numbness from occurring. Now if I could find a neck pillow to stop the numbness while sitting watching tv...........
Posture Corrector Brace - Works like it says it does !!!
I bought this to help correct my posture ,which is basically slumping in front of a computer screen. When wearing it, it really helps lift my chest and shoulders up and out of the slump. I hope with continued use I can get to a point where that corrected posture is automatic - although I think it will take a while to re-train myself.
Tens Unit - 5 stars
Digital Tens Unit - IT WORKED BETTER THAN EXPECTED.... VERY GOOD PRODUCT
keeping me from going back into physical therepy
This is well worth the cost! I have a small problem in my neck that is aggravated by sleeping on a pillow wrong: neck scrunched up. but it was hurting, and causing numbness in my fingers. (TOS) physical therepy really helped the problem, but 6 months later, the problem was back. I did not have the money (no ins) to go back, so I started using some of the stretches they taught me, stopped weight lifting, and got on amazon and ordered a book, a neck brace and this pillow. both the book, (and its ideas) and the brace made things worse - but this pillow address the problem exactly! I wish they had told me about it in therepy. I slept on the traction side for several weeks, until the problem was resolved, now I sleep on the regular side.
5 out of 5
Great pillow if you suffer from neck and upper back pain! I had a doctor tell me that I need neck/back surgery. Besides seeing a chiropractor who was awesome, I purchased this pillow. I highly recommend trying it out! I love it. My husband started having upper back problems, he ordered it and loves it!
Unbelievable pillow I can't say enough about this pillow. None of the treatments the doctors had prescribed helped the pain in my neck and arm. My first night sleeping with this pillow relieved pain that had been haunting me for over 5 months. Love this pillow.
I found the pillow I ordered at my doorstep the next day! What a relief. I'm waking up with no headaches or pain in the neck or shoulders. I love this pillow! "
Excellent Pillow To Try...
My wife ordered this pillow a few months ago and loved it for your neck problems. I started having neck problems and ordered it and it has really helped me too! This is an excellent pillow to try if you suffer from neck aches!
Big difference (positive) the 1st night I slept on it. Sometimes even during the day, when my neck is sore:I go lay on this for 15 mins or so & my neck feels much better when I get up. Pain is a result of whiplash.
I started experiencing neck pain and stiffness
At age 60 I started experiencing neck pain and stiffness when getting up in the morning. Someone suggested trying an orthopedic pillow, and I tried this one based on online reviews. It took awhile to get used to it, but it really has helped with my neck pain a good deal. I think this pillow would be a particularly good choice for people who are both side and back sleepers. When on one's back, the pillow has a small indentation that cradles one's head and keeps the neck in a position that prevents stiffness. When rolling on your side, one tends to naturally roll out of the indentation onto the higher edges of the pillow...again providing just the right position to prevent waking with a sore neck.
As a side sleeper, I'd probably be a little better off with an orthopedic pillow that doesn't have an indentation. but provides the right firmness and l loft to prevent soreness.
Unlike some pillows, this one comes in a king size, so it looks nicer on our bed since it matches (in size) my wife's pillow.
This Pillow is A Life Saver......
This pillow is a life saver. Going to buy some for my loved ones. Thanks!
been using this pillow for 8 months now...
I have been using this pillow for 8 months now and COULD NOT live without it!!! I have had neck/back issues for 8 years, I've had injections and RF procedures/ PT and all the other stuff most people who need a cervical pillow have had. Let me tell you, you aren't going to find a better pillow out there to support your neck and help you sleep than this one so you can stop reading all the reviews! Buy this one, you won't regret it!
Great Item- Linear Gravity Pillow Small
Great Item. Took on vacation, no neck problems. Thank you. FAST Ship!
WONDERFUL! Slept so well last night, I'm getting one for my son!
Neck Pain For Over 10 Years
This pillow is amazing. I have been suffering with neck pain for over 20 years since a car accident. I have had a lot of trouble sleeping because of it. This pillow has helped tremendously. It doesn't really look so innovative, but it has done wonders for my sleep.
Very good and comfortable item! It keeps me away from headache and I love it very much! I will definitely order another one later.
5/5 Stars: Arc4life Pillow
My neck pain and stiffness was 95% improved after 2 nights. I highly recommend this pillow- it is well worth the price!
This pillow lets you know when your neck is in the right place for back sleeping, and when I roll over in the night the sides take over for side sleeping. It is wonderful and has stopped my neck pain.
Great for Your Neck !
I have two disks fused in my neck and this pillow REALLY helps me sleep. Other pillows provide too little support or are to bulky to really do any good. I have been through three of these.
All of the Reviews Were Right
This pillow answered my prayers. I have dealt with neck pain since my first rear end accident in 1991 (three more since). I have tried the memory foam, it only goes flat and gives no support. I tried another cervical pillow that was hard as a rock so it went directly back to Target. You do have to read the directions and then use as suggested. The traction side does take some getting used to and you really have to limit your time and build gradually. However, the other side is my absolute favorite part of the pillow. I am basically a side sleeper and with this pillow it doesn't matter. So I am now waking up with no neck pain and getting a good nights sleep without tossing and turning to get comfortable. If you have neck pain this is the pillow to buy. My only problem is it doesn't come with a cover and it should. The directions say to wipe with wet cloth but I don't believe that will work for long. It was worth the money but for the money there should be a way to protect it from getting dirty.
Absolutly the best night sleep..
I recieved my new Cervical Arc pillow last night. I didn't sleep on the traction side but on the support side. Absolutly the best night sleep I have ahd since I was a kid!! Truly amazing! Thank you 100 times over!
Great pillow 5/5
Great pillow, have not had to go to Chiropractor since I bought mine. I have been buying them for family members and they all love it.
I Love My Neck Pillow
I love my neck pillow...the first night I used it, I could tell it was different, but I was able to sleep all night using it and for the first time in weeks did not wake up with neck pain...it held off until later in the morning, however, with each additional night using it...I saw continued improvement. I'm always looking for the 'V' when I get it bed...I look forward to it! It was several nights before I tried out the neck roll on the other side...but it is comfortable too! Thank you for helping to relieve my neck...it was starting to get really bad!
Anita Chaplin, Indianapolis, IN 4/8/2012
I had neck pain for several months when I decided to buy this pillow. I found it extremely comfortable from the first time I used it. Within a week my neck pain was gone. I was really quite amazed. I highly recommend the pillow. I feel it was worth the money.
Carol F, 3/22/2012
I also was recently diagnosed with arthritis in my neck
I have NEVER written a review for a product, but I had to for this pillow. I had grown accustomed to waking up with an extremely stiff and tight neck. I had a morning warm-up, stretch routine down to a science. I also was recently diagnosed with arthritis in my neck. Apparently in the back, at the nape of the neck. I was very reluctant to purchase this pillow. After one night, yes ONE night, I woke up without a sore neck for the first time in many, many months. I actually felt my neck shift into alignment at one point, as I woke up. This pillow is amazing! I know each person's issues are different, but I would strongly recommend that you give this product a try. It has already made a huge impact for me!
This Pillow Is A Miracle for ME
I want to share with you and the people that are interested in purchasing a good quality neck pillow, all I have to say is this Cervical Track Pillow is AMAZING, I received it in one day, I was so excited it came so soon. But the most important comment I want to make is that I tried the pillow that same night and was a little afraid that it would not work, I've been suffering from neck pain, shoulder and arm pain for a couple of years now,I have to say that this pillow is a miracle for me, I woke up with less pain and after that it's been the best money I have ever spent !!! To all new customers, don't even doubt buying this pillow, just buy it please, you will not regret it, take it from a pain sufferer.

Changed my Life
I'm not in the habit of reviewing products - good or bad. But this pillow has literally changed my life. I've had neck problems on and off for years. I go to the chiro fairly regularly and have always used a cheaper type of cervical pillow - the kind with the slope to it. Well, about 6 weeks ago, my neck was hurting so bad I couldn't stand it. I took advil around the clock, made many trips to the chiropractor but was getting no relief. I would wake up often worse off than when I went to bed, so duh!. It dawned on my that it must be the "neck" pillow that was contributing to my problems. I went online, found this and purchased it. I got pain relief the first night! Felt better than I had in weeks! I was worried because I'm a big side sleeper and thought this wouldn't work very well. But it's a dream either way. It's just the right height and feels great to sleep on my back now too. I highly recommend and hope it works for you, too!"
SM, Atlanta GA, 10/19/2011
Comfortable to sleep on it. Support the neck correctly and make me well relaxed. The height is about right. Relieve cervical pain to some extent.
Yangs, Atlanta GA, 10/5/2011
I Love This Pillow
I've had many but this is, by far, the best!! I hope it lasts forever - but most pillows change after a few months. Time will tell on this one; but, I'll buy another no matter what! Its that good."
JaryLu, USA, 09/11/2011
Love This Pillow
Using as part of system to restore the curve in my neck. Was a little "weird" feeling at first. I actually felt like it was way too high. But figured since my neck was at -7 degrees when it's supposed to around 35-45 degrees, i also knew my spoiled brat neck would be "whining" about no longer sleeping crooked anymore.Took me a couple of days to adjust & love it.
Barrera, USA, 09/05/2011
Increase in My Daily Productivity
I admit that I purchased my side sleeper pillow with an expectation of zero results. I have tried everything else that you could buy in all the retail stores, and nothing worked, including some expensive pillows. Then I found arc4life and this amazing pillow, and it has COMPLETELY eliminated the chronic neck pain that I have suffered from, for years! I'm so happy that you cannot imagine the relief I feel. The increase in my daily productivity as a result of this purchase will pay for this item a thousand times over the years. Thank you arc4life. You're my hero for life.

Best Pillow Ever
I have many pillows that are not working. I have been waking up with consistant and moderate to severe neck pain that triggers migraines almost every morning for months now. I switch pillows and the pain is less for a few days, then gets worse, so I switch and it gets better then worse and so goes the pattern. I bought this pillow, Arc 4 Life, and followed the instructions of sleeping with it knowing that it may be a bit uncomfortbale for the first night or two. It was not uncomfortable for the first couple of hours then I did noticed my neck feeling a little tired, so I simply turned the pillow so the softer neck support part was under my neck and slept well for the rest of the night. I had very little neck pain the first morning and have had zero pain since then, now about six weeks. I love this pillow, I just shared it with my ladies group. One woman came to our weekly gathering with a horrible headache and tension in her neck. I showed her this pillow and we all moved into the living room so she could lay down on the pillow and see if it would help her neck while we all talked and she relaxed. She had taken some medicine and one of the other ladies gave her a neck rub, so all of those factors contributed to her headache going away, but she is so impressed with the pillow and gives it most of the credit. I'm now here ordering two more pillows for her and the woman wo gave her the massage, I am guessing I will be back here ordering more pillows as their husbands get a chance to try the pillows out for themselves. Very few things in life have worked so well as this simple little pillow. It works well for sleeping on my back or on my side. It never slides away and leaves my neck unsupported, which is exactly what happened with so many other pillows and why I would wake up with a painful neck the next morning. I absolutely reccommend this pillow, it is well worth the money.

I am Amazed !
I have to admit that I was skeptical that any pillow could have such a profound positive effect on my well-being, but after spending nearly two months with daily neck and shoulder pain that sapped me of energy and caused me to take far too many NSAIDs, I figured it was worth giving this pillow a shot. After just one night, I was feeling markedly better. I slept better than I have in months, woke feeling rested and refreshed, and had regained nearly the full range of motion in my neck. I strongly recommend this pillow to anyone who suffers from neck and shoulder pain, who wakes with stiffness in his or her neck, and who feels drained of energy.

Best Nights Sleep In Many Years...
I am just letting you know that I received my Arc 4 Life Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow last Thursday (30/6/11). I am pleased to say that I had the best night's sleep in many years, thanks to your wonderful pillow! I have had a military neck since I was young & to have finally found a pillow that actually helps with my condition is very comforting. I am sure that over time & with continued visits to my chiropractor, my military neck will gradually improve & hopefully put the normal curve back in it. I will definitely spread the word on how great this pillow is for anyone suffering from neck/back & shoulder pain. Thank you & best wishes from Australia.

This is an incredible pillow!
This is an incredible pillow! The first 2 nights were a bit odd, but as I stuck with it, it has become a pleasure to go to bed at night knowing my neck and hips won't hurt in the morning. I've noticed over the last couple of years that when my neck went out so did my hips, and I would have pain for several weeks until it settled down by sleeping in a different bed. Now, I get to stay in my bed, sleep all thru the night, and have completely gotten rid of all neck and back pain for the first time in years'all from 1 wonderful pillow. Bravo! THANK YOU!!

Best Pillow Ever !
This is the best pillow I've ever used! I have two herniated discs in my neck and suffer from frequent neck pain. With this pillow I wake up pain free and refreshed. I even lie down on it during the day when I am having neck pain at home and it relieves the pain within a short period of time. I am about to order my second one - the first one is 3 years old and is getting a little flat. GREAT PRODUCT! I've recommended it to all of my friends whohave neck pain!

Neck Pain Be Gone
I have had neck pain for years upon years, and I have a collection of expensive pillows beside my bed to alleviate that pain. This is the first one that actually worked. I woke up with no pain. Amazing. I have foam pillows, buckwheat pillows, feather pillows, and synthetic pillows. This is the first one that left my neck loose in the morning. I love it. Thank you.

It works for me, and I'm a side-sleeper.
I purchased this pillow after about two months of severe pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders, with associated headache. I knew it was a muscular strain, so I had begun some yoga, moist heat compresses and other similar things to work out the tightness. But it was at night, when I thought I'd get relief, that it sometimes got worse. This pillow absolutely lived up to my expectations based on the product description. As noted in other reviews, it took two or three nights to adjust to the shape, but now it is the ONLY pillow I use...........after years of always combining two different pillows in some way. I do sleep on my side, and so I lay my cheek on the edge of the pillow and after a little wiggling the support feels just right. During periods of severe pain, I lie on my back in middle of the pillow and that feels great....it really helps. Everyone's body is different.....this worked for me, and would definitely recommend trying it.

The Pain Stopped
With two spurs in my neck I would often wake up during the night with pain. Other pillows would change shape after a few minutes. This pillow allows you to find a comfortable position and will stay there. I'm very pleased!

I can Sleep Again !
I've suffered with neck pain for years and bought just about every cervical pillow known to man. This pillow is a perfect fit. It maintains proper alignment of my head and neck so that I am able to relax, fall asleep, and wake up without neck stiffness or headaches. It is much more comfortable than other pillows that I've owned. It is not as "hard" as some, yet it maintains its shape and cervical support for well over a year before needing replaced. Works well for back or side sleepers. The price might seem daunting, but it is well worth every penny.
Mommy in Pennsylvania, 11/29/2010, USA
Miracle Pillow !
This pillow has been a god send, I've been suffering with a trapped nerve in my neck and a subsequent muscle spasm in my neck/shoulder for some time and nothing I try is helping but this pillow has helped no end. It did feel a little weird at first like my head was tipped too far back but I guess thats because we all sleep with our necks in the wrong position. The instructions say to only use for an hour or two at first which is difficult since you're supposed to sleep on it but one side is less raised than the other so you could always start with the flatter side and then flip it to the more sculpted side once you get used to it. All in all this is worth every penny and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is suffering with neck/shoulder pain.
Stacey J Casbeer, 11/19/2010, USA
The relief I was hoping for...truly.,
Like others who have written, I had this item (Arc4life Cervical Traction Neck Pillow) in "save for later" status for a long time, because of the cost...also, because of the potential for disappointment...if this won't work than what? My only regret in making this purchase is that I waited so long. The last reviewer was correct: the period of adjustment was minimal...especially for the degree of relief I experience. Also, like other customers, I have had long time pain and multiple injuries. I disagree with the reviewer who stated that the pillow should be softer. I think that the degree of firmness helps to create the support that is needed. The pillow "fits" me perfectly, so I cannot opine regarding the need for a smaller version. Could be, if someone is especially small or short in stature. Luckily for me, I am experiencing even more relief than anticipated. Morning neck stiffness is all but eliminated. The pillow keeps my head in place, as opposed to it constantly flopping over to rest on my shoulder. Have recommended this pillow to friends and family. I look forward to putting my head down at night. Although evaluating the comfort level of a pillow is a personal opinion, it is my hope that everyone's experience with the cervical traction pillow is as good as mine. Also, having worked as a Certified Massage Therapist for eight years, I believe that this pillow will help to extend the effect of bodywork. (Just an opinion):)

5 out of 5: "Best pillow ever
I had a neck injury that lasted for several months. I could never find a good pillow that could help me sleep despite my pain. Well the Arc4life Cervical Traction Neck pillow did the trick. I have been able to sleep better without inflamming my injury. I think this will be the last pillow I buy now!"
s2wcreid , 10/17/2010
I have used cervical pillows from my chiropractor that were not as effective as this one. The adjustment period is very brief, do not let that deter you. My neck and cervical alignment have improved dramatically from use of this pillow. You can choose one of the two sides to sleep on, depending upon your needs. Highly recommend this pillow!

It's helped my neck and shoulders
The transaction went smooth and easy. My Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow arrived very promptly and was carefully wrapped and well protected. It came with a very helpful booklet on how to use the pillow and the different ways it can be used. I am really enjoying my new pillow. It's helped my neck and shoulders be less painful upon waking."

I am 28 years old and have "forward head posture. Iv'e been struggling with intense pain since I was 12 in my neck and shoulders. I go to my chiropractor weekly which helps but this is amazing. I will be interested to see how my migraines are effected. I average 2 migraines per day. Im so thrilled Matt and I can't thank you all enough!" Katie.S, 8/13/2010

I am Not Waking Up with Headaches..
I love it....
This is the best pillow that I have ever purchased for my neck pain. I love it.
I have a slight reverse curve in my neck and routinely get migraines. I purchased this pillow hoping it would help and have been using it for about a month now. At first it made my neck hurt more and made my neck very stiff because my neck was not used to being in that position. After a few days though, it made my neck feel really good. My neck actually hurts more now if I do not use the pillow. We will see how much it helps my headaches long term, since it takes time to work. The one negative I have is that you have to sleep in a particular position for the pillow to work. Yes, you can sleep on your back or either side. However, if you sleep on your right side, you have to sleep on the right side of the pillow (not the center or the left). It is not a big deal, but is a minor inconvenience.

I have severe Cervical Arthritis & when I work out in the yard/garden, it strains my neck very much- This pillow has been so helpful in that it stretches my neck as I sleep - taking the pressure off my discs- I highly recommend it!

So far, so good. Pillow arrived very promptly and have had a better night's rest when using this pillow. A little difficult if you like to sleep on your side, but while sleeping on my back, it cradles my head and supports my neck very well!

So far I am having a great experience with this pillow, I have been in constant pain for about 2 years now and this pillow has really helped me. I am very, very grateful for the relief without any pills needed. I hope the pillow will last a while, quite pricy but worth it. Thank you!
An Excellent Choice
I have looked for a replacement for my aging cervical neck pillow for several years. Since these pillows are rather pricey, I wanted to be sure I made the right choice. The first night I tried sleeping on the traction side, but that soon became uncomfortable to me. I switched to the other side, and it was very comfortable. Of course, the cervical pillow was not a new experience for me, so there wasn't much time spent in getting used to it. I am a back sleeper, and even though the advertisement says it can be used by a side sleeper, I don't think it would be very comfortable. For me, the pillow is very much what I needed and hoped it would be.

An excellant device. Does provide some long term (overnight) traction. A definate sleeping aid if slight traction helps you. Pricey, but worth it.

Great Pillow for Neck Traction
This Great Pillow for Neck Traction pillow is great for anyone suffering from some neck and shoulder muscle pain. It takes a while to adjust to the confinement but it made a big difference when I woke up in the morning. The only problem I ran into is that I sleep on my side and my back to I would have to rearrange the pillow.
Rae Ann Gallegos', Centennial, CO USA 05/19/2010
I am extremely pleased with this product. I have suffered from neck 'problems' for years as my neck curves the opposite of what it should. With weekly visits to the chiropractor, massage therapy and the use of this pillow now, I feel better than I have ever felt in years! The support from this pillow is awesome - back or side sleepers - I wake up without a stiff neck or pain. I highly recommend this product, it is worth the money!
Good Results- 5 Gold Stars
Excellent pillow. My neck stiffness and shoulder pain considerably improved on 2 to 3days.

Comfortable Pillow- 5 Gold Stars
After having trouble finding the right pillow and going through a number of mornings with stiff neck, I came across this pillow. This is a back sleeper pillow. What I like most about the pillow is the raised neck and shallow middle for my head. Most of the other pillows I've tried were either too soft and didn't have enough neck support, or were too firm and felt like I had my head tilted upwards. I even tried the memory foam, both normal and ergonomically shaped pillows. While the ergo memory foam pillow would have extra neck support which I wanted, I felt it was tall and stiff lifting my head up to high and exaggerating the curve of my neck. I would usually end up taking a softer pillow and scrunching it up behind my neck to add extra support without all the head elevation. This pillow is almost 3 pillows (maybe 4) in one. The top main side (V shaped side) has the most neck support and bracing to help keep your head centered. If you rotate it 180 degrees, (so the V looks like an A) there is slightly less neck elevation/support if the V side is too extreme for you. If you prefer less neck elevation, flip the pillow over. The back side has a softer neck support area and but still has the shallow center for your head. This is by far the most comfortable pillow I've used because of the neck support and shallow center for my head. If you're a back sleeper and can't find the right pillow to support your neck, try this out.

"This pillow took a little getting used to, but it got rid of my weekly neck-tension headaches, and for that it gets 5 stars. It is excellent for sleeping on my back, and good for sleeping on my side (but it seems more geared towards back-sleeping). The shape of the pillow makes it nearly impossible to sleep on my stomach, which in my case is a good thing since in that position I often crank my neck at night, which causes the headaches. "

Only wish I would have known about this pillow before having made a very expensive pillow purchase mistake last year. I visited our local Relax The Back store and explained my sleep problems with the salesperson. He assured me that their �Contour Air Pillow - Double Valve� was exactly what I needed and would make a world of difference in getting a good nights rest since I would adjust pillow to personal comfortable levels. Wow, what an expensive mistake as the pillow cost $165 and experienced one problem after another within a few months. The bladders would deflate and they finally replaced the pillow with a stern warning it was a one-time replacement. Needless to say we are back to same situation and I�m out the expense with nothing to show for it.

We are forever indebted to Arc4life.
Edgar & Emma Soares, Margao Goa India. 11/17/2009
My wife has a diagnosed herniated cervical disc with noticeable deformity and nerve impingement causing localized and radiating pain through the shoulder into the upper arm. I purchased this (the cervical traction neck pillow) 3 weeks ago hoping that applying mild traction to the cervical spine while she slept would alleviate at least some of that pain and thus far it is performing better than expected.
Since beginning use of this pillow there have been no complaints of neck pain or "stiffness" and no radiation of pain into the shoulder/arm. The pillow seems to be effective whether she sleeps on her back or her sides and she was able to tolerate it throughout the night from the first use. The greatest traction effect would however seemed to be gained while lying on ones back, fortunately my wife falls asleep in that position and changes later during the night. The side wings do seem to provide adequate c-spine support when sleeping on ones side so there has been no detrimental effect when doing so.
I am looking for a lightweight pillow cover/case as standard thicker cotton cases seem to decrease the effect and although you can wash these pillows, who knows how well they would stand up to repeated runs through the washing machine. So far, it is holding it's shape well and I hope that it continues to do so. I was concerned with paying the relatively high price for a pillow that may or may not do anything but in this case, it has been money well spent as long as the pillow continues to maintain its shape. Hope this helps... ."

4/5 Stars...Very comfortable- I've been using this pillow for approximately 6 weeks. I mostly use the traction side. I didn't need a break-in period and used it the whole night from the start. I start my night on my back, but sleep mostly on my side. While it's very comfortable either way, I think this pillow is best suited for back sleepers. That being said, I like it enough that I wouldn't stop using it. I can feel the traction when I lay on my back and it helps relax my neck muscles before I go to sleep.
It hasn't significantly reduced my pain, but I believe a back sleeper would derive more benefit just because they'd spend more time in traction. It doesn't contribute to my pain and that's a plus because most pillows make my neck feel worse.
I don't regret my choice and probably would buy it again.

Hello, I recently tried the Cervical Traction Neck Pillow as a �guinea pig� for my own patients. I struggle with pillows and feel that if I didn�t give it an �A+� rating, then neither would they! It�s been fabulous and keeps me sleeping through the night without waking up to struggle with my pillow!
I own Broadway Family Chiropractic in Raynham, MA. I�m excited to offer these as it�s been a long journey in finding a pillow that does what yours does and feels so great. I love the cradling effect of the traction wedges. Very comfortable and you can really feel the cervical traction effect. Thanks for this pillow!

The instructions that came with the pillow recommend using it only one hour at first, so there's an expectation that one may have to get used to it. That isn't just to imply that your brain has to adjust to a change in the sleeping environment, like it would adjust to a new nightly noise. It's also that someone with pretty severe issues may need a longer period of time for muscles to relax and lengthen, a process which can be uncomfortable.
I've been working on my spine with exercises, but I had some stubborn tight areas around my C spine and that's why I got the pillow. At the same time I got a neck traction collar and a Spine-Worx Back Realignment Device.
From the very first night, I've been sleeping great all night long on this pillow and I think it's helped me a good deal. Before I got the pillow I was unable to sleep on my left side or back--I'd have pressure point pain building up on the right side but couldn't sleep in any other orientation. Now I can sleep much more comfortably in more positions, and as a bonus, my pillow-side ear doesn't wake me up with pressure pain.

5 Stars for the Cervical Traction Neck Pillow
I got the Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow last week, and it is by far the best neck pillow that I have tried. It took about 2 nights to get used to it - it makes me sleep with my head in a flatter position than I am used to, so that was weird at first. But the relief that it provides to your neck is definitely worth the adjustment. Even in the middle of the day, I will sometimes just lie down for 10 minutes on the pillow just to give my neck a relief for a while, which feels great.
The first 2 days I also felt like I could not move my head in the pillow - like it had to be straight upright. But, that was simply a misconception. If you lean your head to the left or right with this pillow, your head gets supported in a similar way to a neck pillow you might wear on an airplane, but with the support on your neck itself still there.
You can also lie on your side and the pillow gives support under your neck. It's not as good as when you lie on your back, but if you tend to want to lie on your side when you sleep at least you get some support with it.
Overall I really love this pillow and would say it is worth a try if you experience any kind of neck discomfort. "
M.Badger, New York 6/14/2009

I purchased two pillows - one for me and one for my *snoring husband. Here is how the pillow stacked up:
Me: I traded in my Tempur-Pedic contoured pillow for this one. I was scared, but willing to try a new one, since the other one had started to go flat. I had suffered a shoulder injury about two months ago and it had been causing severe pain in my right shoulder, upper back, neck, and jaw. No amount of manipulation, massage or medication helped the pain. I swear, one night on this pillow (I didn't even do the break-in as suggested, I just used it the entire night through and slept soundly), and the pain was gone for an entire day. I did not even need one advil. Oh, and I was not able to crack my neck, probably because it was properly aligned for once. I was shocked. I have used it nightly ever since, and each day, my shoulder improves. I am able to do more and more. The pain is still gone. I am a believer. Bye-bye Tempur-Pedic pillow!
My husband: Long time (jet-engine) snorer. He traded in his Sona Pillow for Snoring and Mild Sleep Apnea ($129) for this one. The other pillow cut back the snoring about 75% for a short time. My husband has been so uncomfortable on his old pillow, he doesn't use it properly, and it doesn't work. He didn't want to use this new pillow either and was upset when he found out it was more expensive than a standard pillow, until he tried it out. He loved how it felt when he was on his back and side. So far, he has not snored at all on his back or side. That in itself is a miracle. His back pain has also decreased greatly.
I highly recommend giving this pillow a try. I love mine so much I lugged it on vacation with me."

*Article: The Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow Can Reduce Snoring
"I have have been diagnosed with military neck (loss of curvature in the neck) for over 15 years. The chiropractor wants me to lie on a rolled up towel periodically but who has the time. Often, I will wake with a stiff neck making it difficult to rotate my head. I spend all my time at work seated and looking down which could be the cause of my troubles.
I looked at a number of products and finally settled on the Arc4life traction pillow. I'm very pleased with the quality of the product and it's gentle action. From day one I've slept very comfortably with it and highly recommend it to others experience neck discomfort.
Only negative experience is that my mother in law tried it out when she came to visit and she liked it so much I gave it to her and ordered 2 more for myself. The pillows aren't cheap, but when compared to therapy and even high end pillows, they are a bargain. "
