FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™?
The Cervipedic Neck-Relief™ is a cervical support that can be used to help reinforce the natural curvature of the cervical spine. It is organically shaped to comfortably cradle the head and neck while gently promoting a natural cervical lordosis. A built in adjustable bladder pump allows the user to customize the amount of cervical support.
How can I benefit from using it?
The contoured shape of the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™ gently stretches the neck as the body starts to relax thereby relieving tension in the cervical muscles and joints. The degree of curvature can be adjusted and customized to your comfort.
The CerviPedic Neck-Relief™ It’s been known to help to relieve tension headaches, reduce migraines, muscle fatigue, neck stiffness, neck spasms and general neck pain. It supports proper curvature of the cervical spine and creates optimal spacing of its intervertebral discs.
It’s great for home care therapy because it is extremely comfortable, adjustable, light and easy to use. Chiropractors love the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™.
How do I use the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™?
You can lie supine or reclined with the cervical support of the CerviPedic Neck-relief™ behind the neck. You can inflate or deflate the air bladder until you find the most comfortable level of curvature. The objective is for the user to lie comfortably in the pillow for as long as they are able to. The CerviPedic Neck-Relief™ can be used it in bed before going to sleep, on a long couch, in a recliner, lounge chair, as a passenger in a car or airplane.
How is it different from traditional cervical pillows?
Unlike other pillows which are made completely of foam or fill, the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™ is built on a specifically shaped semi-flexible polymer core and cushioned with sculpted foam layers. The polymer core is engineered to be variably compliant throughout its structure to precisely direct the proper amount of support and cushioning exactly where they are needed. It also features a manual pump which varies the cervical support provided by an air-cell built into the cervical area of the device.

Chiropractors recommend that their patients use the Cervipedic Neck-Relief™ for as long as they are comfortable but they should begin slowly in order to ensure that everyone, can use it successfully. They recommend it’s not used for no more than 5 minutes at first and as they feel comfortable, then they can progress to an additional 5 minutes the next day and so forth. If no pain or discomfort is experienced, it can be uses for as long as they are comfortable.
How should I feel?
Most people experience relief from tension while they are properly positioned in the Cervipedic Neck-Relief™. Many people report less tension in the head, neck and shoulder muscles while the weight of the head is being supported and the neck is aligned in a proper lordotic curvature.
“… after trying it for only a few minutes in the office, I knew I had to have it. My first impression was that I immediately felt “zero gravity” on my neck.” – Sarah O’Neill (56 yrs) – Anaheim Hills, CA
Is the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™ Comfortable?
Yes! Most people and doctors are surprised at how comfortable it is from the first time they try it. Although it is very well cushioned for the soft tissues, the reason it is so comfortable is because of its precisely sculpted shape. It holds both the head and neck securely in proper alignment while giving you a normal range of movement and allowing you to be comfortable while using the device for extended periods. Yes!

Most people report feeling a difference immediately. Many use it for as little as 20 minutes and report feeling relief from tension headaches and muscle tension.
“… I was surprised at how great it felt within the first few seconds!… It relieves the stress and pain on my neck, & the relief lasts for several hours.” – Frank Clayton (81) – Medford, OR .
Can I use the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™ for sleeping?
Although many people report using it for sleeping, we do not recommend the Cervipedic Neck-Relief™ for sleeping since it is not possible to reliably control body position and maintain ideal posture while is unconscious. They may find themselves in awkward positions that may cause undesirable results. However, many people who are back sleepers and are already used to using a cervical pillow find the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™ very comfortable and are able to use it throughout the night with no problem.
Are there different sizes?
There is one size which fits most necks. Most adults fit comfortably in the Cervipedic Neck-Relief™ and patients as young as 9 years old have found it to be comfortable.
Will the bladder pop if it is over inflated?
No, the construction of the manual pump will allow approximately 8-9 psi which is well below the capacity of the bladder. Pressing on the dome pump further will not fill the bladder with any more air.
How do I clean the CerviPedic Neck-Relief™?
Spot cleaning is recommended for the outer covering. Simply unzip the jacket, reach inside to gently detach the velcro and clean by hand with mild detergent and water. Allow it to air-dry completely while it is unzipped. Then replace the velcro to create the dimple where the head resides and zip up the jacket. You can also use a pillowcase over it to prevent the CerviPedic from getting dirty.
