Hourglass Knee Support Pillow Ideal for Side Sleepers to Alleviate Pain and Support the Back and Hips
Recommended by the NHS, this knee pillow is the ideal support for those who have undergone hip surgery, or who are prone to back problems such as sciatica and coccyx pain (coccydynia). It is also a suitable treatment and preventative for the worsening of knee conditions such as Osgood–Schlatter Disease (OSD) and Housemaid’s Knee (Bursitis).
If you have recently undergone a hip replacement, avoiding internal rotation (a twisting movement of your thigh inward from your hip joint) in an absolute must. Internal rotation of the hip following surgery can cause the hip to dislocate, causing you great pain and greatly slowing down your recovery.
NHS surgeons and doctors recommend the use of this knee support pillow to aid your recovery and avoid complications following surgery. With surgery this major, it is absolutely vital that you do all you can at home to take care of yourself after the surgeons have done their part.
What is An Orthopaedic Leg Pillow?
Also called a contour leg pillow, an orthopaedic leg pillow is designed to correct body positioning in bed or while lying on any other surface. Its design must conform to orthopaedic guidelines to ensure the right placement and support of one or more specific parts of the body to provide safe and healthy rest to the sleeper. A product cannot legally claim to be orthopaedic if its build and materials do not conform to the orthopaedic guidelines. The Natural Health Supports™ Orthopaedic Knee and Hip Support Pillow has been shown in studies to relieve lower back pain and is strongly recommended by surgeons and doctors following hip surgery.
Durable, High Quality Materials and Thoughtful Craftsmanship
The Natural Health Supports™ Knee and Hip Support Pillow is made from reflex foam that is of a similar firmness and texture to memory foam but is far lighter for ease of use. This high-quality foam will keep its firmness and shape for long after its 2-year manufacturers warranty and ensures air can pass freely through the fibres to avoid overheating or discomfort when using. The included cover is a soft jersey material that feels gentle and breathable against the skin. The cover provides protection for the inner pillow and it can be removed for washing to keep any bacteria from building up on your pillow when using it night after night.
