Is The Water Pillow the best pillow for neck pain?

The Water Pillow provides excellent cervical, neck, and head support. Johns Hopkins School of Medicine uses The Water Pillow to treat patients suffering from chronic headaches due to neck problems.

As someone who suffers with neck pain from a previous car wreck, The Water Pillow has been my favorite pillow that I have reviewed so far. The water provides support unlike any pillow fill that I have tried.
