The Reason You Have Neck Pain, According to Kim Kardashian West

Ever wake up from a night’s sleep and immediately feel pain when you move your neck? The common assumption is that we’ve slept on the “wrong side”. But that’s not entirely true. And we’ve got Kim Kardashian to thank for helping us really uncover the cause of our night-time neck problems.

Last week, Kim revealed that she’d been suffering from neck pain. She tried alternative therapies such as cupping and acupuncture to help with her problem and now she has decided to test drive some new pillows, as she believed that they were really the root of the problem. 

According to the Harvard Medical School, there are two positions that are best for neck pain—on your back or on your side. It also recommends that finding the right pillow is key. You should avoid using a pillow that’s too stiff and ensure that it supports your neck properly. This means a feather pillow that “easily conforms to the shape of the neck” or a memory foam pillow that “conforms to the contour of your head and neck”. 

So, bearing this in mind, we’ve found the highest-rated memory foam pillow on Amazon, as well as taken a look at KKW's favourite pillows, so you can solve your neck problems once and for all.

After testing driving a few pillows, Kim discovered that her favourite pillows were from Casper and Talalay. 

Over on Amazon, the highest-rated pillow is the Snug Single Contour Memory Foam Pillow, and has over 700 five-star reviews, which is more than we need to tell us that this is a great pillow.
