bed because this enables optimal blood circulation to all the vital healing
areas and helps reduce the swelling. You may use a bed wedge to stay elevated
during the initial phase of your recovery. It is recommended to stay elevated
on the bed wedge as long as swelling is considerable in the affected areas.
The wedge pillows featured in the Store typically include a pillow cover.
