Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How Effective is The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow For Curing My Neck & Back Pain?

Chronic neck and pain can be extremely frustrating. Using a traditional orthopedic or regular pillow usually increases tension on certain areas of the spine, making it difficult to heal, usually resulting in more pain. The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow properly supports your spine while releasing muscle and nerve tension surrounding the spine as well as subtle decompression. This simple solution can cure most neck and back pain. However, The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow does have certain limitations, especially for curing pain due to certain diseases and permanent injuries. While it cannot cure all spinal pain, it can cure most spinal pain and provide some relief even if it doesn’t cure the pain completely. If the DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow does not allow you to obtain the relief you are seeking, it is recommended to see your physician, an orthopedic specialist and/or a pain doctor. Given the cost and effectiveness, it is recommended to try the DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow first, before electing for surgery or any invasive procedures.

How Should I use the pillow for acid reflux and sleep apnea?

For best results, put one or two pillows underneath the head portion of The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow to create a 15—20 degree incline. The hard base within the pillow ensures your body stays in the correct position while you sleep. An increased incline may not be necessary, but if the symptoms are severe, a 15—20 degree incline is usually required to alleviate both acid reflux and sleep apnea.

Should I put the pillow in a reclined position for neck and/or back pain?

The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow can be used on a flat surface, such as a bed or the floor to cure neck and back pain, or in a reclined position. Since both are effective, the user can alternate between a flat or reclined position based on the user’s preferences. The reclined position does allow for less tension to be put on the neck. Thus, if you are primarily suffering from neck pain, it would be a good idea to try the inclined position as well as the flat position.

Can The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow help with posture?

Yes! The design and shape of The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow is aimed at spinal health, relieving back and neck pain, and improving posture. The structural foam panels inside the pillow allows for improved spine
health of the three distinct spinal curves in the neck (cervical), midback (thoracic) and low back (lumbar). Bad
posture causes the spine’s natural curve to straighten, creating significant stress on the joints, ligaments and
muscles not only in the spine but the entire body.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, for additional cost.

How big is the pillow? How much does it weigh?

The pillow is approximately 13 inches wide and 36 inches long and weighs 4-5 pounds / 2 kilos.

When will I start to feel relief from my pain?

Results are usually noticeable fairly quickly for most people. If used as directed, by lying on the pillow before
going to bed at night, before getting out of bed in the morning and throughout the day for fifteen minutes each, the pillow can start to provide noticeable relief for most neck and back pain within a few days. However, for some people it may take additional time on the pillow to notice reduced tension and pain relief. A full recovery could take a few days for minor pain. For severe cases, it may take a few months to obtain a full recovery and allow enough time for the disks to re-hydrate and heal.

Does the pillow help snoring/sleep apnea?

Sleeping at an incline with proper positioning of your jaw, throat and tongue is often recommended to help
decrease snoring and assist with positional sleep apnea. The patented design of the DaVinci Orthopedic
Pillow allows you to sleep comfortably on your back and even your side. You can also add a pillow between
your head and the DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow, which works well in a reclined position or on your side.
We have heard from several customers who successfully use the DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow to reduce mild
sleep apnea and snoring. The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow does not replace a CPAP machine, but can be used
in conjunction with it.

Can I use the pillow after a car accident?

Yes, but first discuss using the pillow with your doctor before use.

Can I sleep all night on the pillow?

Yes, but you should start off with 15 minute increments before sleeping on the pillow all night.

Are There Different Sizes?

Currently, we have a one-size fits all. However, different sizes will be available in the future.

Can I Wash or Replace the Cover?

Yes, the pillow cover is removable via a zipper, can be washed and replacement covers are available.

Can I use The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow along with other therapies, such as chiropractic, acupuncture and physical therapy?

Yes! It is recommended to integrate The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow with the above therapies. Using it be-fore any chiropractic adjustment can make it it easier and more comfortable for spinal adjustments as ten-sion is released and the spine is slightly decompressed.

Can the pillow be used for acid reflux?

Yes, it is recommended to position The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow at an incline to maximize effectiveness for acid reflux.

Should I use the pillow even if I don’t have any pain?

Yes, the pillow is extremely comfortable and can be used in a variety of different ways. It also works well to maintain optimal spine health, reduce any muscle tension and provides proper support for when you are lying on a bed using laptop, phone or watching TV. Add an extra pillow for additional support and comfort. The pillow can also be used as a portable massage table in the face down position.

Yes, The DaVinci Orthopedic Pillow has existing and pending patents in the US and in several foreign countries. US and international patents are strictly enforced.

Is the pillow made in the US?
