There’s an interesting story behind our pillows…
The Story Begins…
The story begins with Dr. John Marinkovic, D.C., an experienced chiropractor in New Jersey who was having trouble sleeping. For years he woke up in general discomfort and couldn’t fall back to sleep, even though he had no health issues or physical ailments.
John tried numerous remedies to no avail and eventually began to suspect the problem stemmed from the pillow he was using at the time. So he asked his partner and brother, Dr. Peter Marinkovic, D.C., to take x-rays of his neck while standing up and lying on a well-known, branded pillow.
The x-rays showed John had a normal curvature in his neck (called “normal lordotic curvature”) when standing, a critical component of healthy spinal alignment and restful sleep. But to his surprise, the well-known, branded pillow he was using – and had been recommending to his patients – completely flattened the curve of his neck. Knowing the negative affects poor spinal alignment can have, this finding led them to believe this was the cause of the general discomfort that woke him up every night.
The Plot Thickens…
Thinking the issues he uncovered were due to the pillow’s age, John tried a new pillow. However, x-rays showed the curvature of his neck was still completely flattened when lying on it. Dr. John concluded what he thought was a good pillow was actually causing his poor sleep quality.
Understanding the importance of proper neck curvature and spine alignment to overall health and sleep quality, Drs. John and Peter Marinkovic began a comprehensive study of the many varied pillows available to people in stores to assess how each one affected neck curvature and spine alignment.
The Scientific Results…
What they found was that all pillows tested adversely shifted subjects’ neck curvatures outside of their natural rested states. Amazed by the results, Drs. John and Peter Marinkovic became obsessed with developing a pillow that properly supports neck curvature, maintains proper spinal alignment, AND is extremely comfortable to use. They knew this winning combination would be the key to blissful, restful sleep.
Introducing the Dr. Marink’s Pillow…
The duo let medical science drive the shape and design of the pillows. Through extensive research and numerous design iterations, vetted by countless static and motion x-rays, the pillow evolved. After an exhaustive multi-year research and development effort, the Dr. Marink’s pillow collection was created.
Dr. Marink’s pillows are the first anatomically-designed pillows that can factually claim the promotion of natural rested-state neck curvature during sleep, referred to as normal lordotic curvature. This supports proper spinal alignment and promotes the most comfortable and healthy sleep possible.
Research shows that not only do people with normal neck curvature retain that natural state when sleeping on Dr. Marink’s pillows, but the pillows even promote normal neck curvature in people who have abnormal curvature while standing.
The Proof Is In the Zzzs…
Every person using the Dr. Marink’s pillow following its debut has raved about the comfort they experience and the better sleep they enjoy each night. Some of the greatest proof regarding the impact of the Dr. Marink’s pillow comes from John himself. After battling with years of restless nights, John happily began sleeping through the night!
