I Met Many People Who Use A Pretty Flat Pillow...

Why is using a pretty flat pillow no good? You have curves in the spine that should be maintained. A "C" curve in the neck, a curve the opposite way in the mid-back, and a "C" again in the low back (more of an ellipse though). This is when looking at our body from the side of course. From the front view - we are straight up and down.

To maintain those curves we need support when we sleep. A flat pillow is flattening out the curve. Also, if we have no curve or even an accentuated curve in part of the spine, it affects the rest of the spine. For example, if the head is perched forward it will often cause the lower back to extend backward more.

Lastly, any deviation from the normal, puts pressure on nerves an causes unwanted imbalances.
