We've all been there, crammed into tiny seats, squashed by the reclining seat in front. You flop around from side to side, in and out of sleep, awkwardly leaning on the shoulder of the stranger beside you, until you give up and decide the tray table is the best any only option for you to rest your head on for a few moments of respite.
Cursing the passenger beside you sleeping effortlessly with their neck pillow and eye mask, oblivious to the torture you are going through. As smug and cosy as they may be, there are a few important reasons why Neck Pillows are and should be used on mid to long haul flights etc...
Did you know that there are just seven small bones that support our heavy heads, (most heads weigh around 5kg!). These bones are supported by overworked muscles and tendons.
The normal shape of the cervical spine is a gentle curve called the lordotic cervical curve. Anything that causes you to lose that natural neck position for a long period, such as sleeping with your neck bent or extended, causes stress on the spine and its supporting structures and can result in neck pain, both long and short term.
Globite Neck Pillows are designed to support your neck and head in a natural position. We offer a variety of neck pillows that aim to reduce neck pain and give you a good night's sleep.
All are designed to create a natural resting position for your head that maintains the lordotic curve of your spine.
So, before your next flight make sure you grab yourself a Globite Neck Pillow and arrive kink-free and refreshed at your destination...
