Abstract

The present invention provides a therapeutic pillow (15) with enhanced ability to support the head, neck and upper back of the user when the user is sleeping either on his or her back or side positions, referred to in this disclosure as the back sleeping and side sleeping positions, respectively. In one embodiment the invention provides a generally rectangular shaped section (16) of suitable resilient form-retaining material, having a centrally disposed cavity in its upper surface which cavity is adapted to support the head of the sleeper. The cavity merges with the forward edge of the pillow (15) and through a smooth arcuate neck supporting section into a generally wedge shaped extension (17) or boss which extends substantially beyond the front edge of the pillow (15) and which is adapted to support the upper back of the user.
