Physio Anna explaining the benefits of a Knee Pillow [Video]
"The Essential Wellness Knee Cushion is designed to be worn/used at night by anyone suffering from knee pain, particularly if that knee pain is keeping you up at night.
In fact, even if you have pain not just in your knees but your hips or back, this can help. As often, the unnatural positions we take to try to alleviate our knee pain only end up transferring that pain to other parts of the body.
Especially if you are a side sleeper! That's where this really shines as the soft memory foam will prevent your knees from knocking together as your sleep preventing those episodes of sharp pain flair up.
The exterior of the cushion is a velveteen as we wanted it to be soft against the skin while being hypoallergenic. The cover (and cushion) can of course be washed whenever you need to.
The strap holds the pillow in place even through nightly tossing and turning and as mentioned before, the memory foam accommodates knees and legs of all shapes and sizes.
My recommendation for who would benefit from using a knee pillow the most is those suffering from:
- Knee Arthritis
- No cartilage
- Pain at night when your knees touch together
- Hip problems
- Back problems that stiffen overnight including canal stenosis
Frequent waking up to pain and subsequent tossing and turning can be reduced by using an Essential Wellness knee cushion to find that optimal sleeping position
In fact, by using the knee pillow, your hips and back will stay in a better alignment as you sleep on your side. Providing a benefit not only to your knees, but other parts of your body as well.
Back sleepers are not forgotten about also. Often, at night the knee falls into an extremely straighten position and the resulting stiffness the next day can seem to stray with you all day. By placing the knee cushion underneath the knee you prevent the knee from locking, meaning less pain the next day."
