Quels sont les critères d'un bon oreiller?

Posted on January 31, 2017 at 9:45 AM

Est-ce parce que plusieurs voulaient offrir un oreiller en cadeau ou encore qu’ils souhaitaient mieux dormir que j’ai été questionné à plusieurs reprises au sujet des oreillers durant les Fêtes?

 

Même si je vends des oreillers à la clinique, je ne vais pas vous dire d’acheter MON oreiller. C’est simplement un service offert à la clinique. Cependant, je vais plutôt essayer de vous conseiller sur les critères pour choisir l’oreiller qui vous convient. Trop souvent, des gens me disent se réveiller avec des douleurs au cou ou encore avec des maux de tête. Si vous ressentez un de ces symptômes au réveil, c’est que votre sommeil est de piètre qualité. Un adulte dort en moyenne entre 7 et 9 heures par nuit. Certains dormiront un peu plus, d’autres un peu moins. En considérant ce fait, il est possible de déduire (ce n’est rien de très scientifique!) qu’un adulte moyen passe environ le tiers de sa vie couché sur son oreiller (8 heures de sommeil pour 24 heures dans une journée!). Dormir devrait permettre au corps de se régénérer et non de provoquer des tensions et de la fatigue. Ainsi, un mauvais oreiller peut facilement devenir une source de stress de manière inconsciente. Voici donc mes critères pour faire le bon choix d’oreillers:

1. Le type de matériau

 

Il existe une panoplie d’oreillers sur le marché; tous fabriqués à partir de matériau différent. De manière générale, on retrouve les fibres synthétiques telles que la mousse mémoire, le polyester et la fibre de microgel ainsi que les fibres naturelles comme le latex, la laine, le duvet (et les plumes) et les écales de sarrasin. Pour son oreiller, on choisit préférablement une fibre naturelle pour des raisons de santé et, en partie, écologiques. À titre d’exemple, la laine est sans allergène et elle a l’avantage d'absorber l'humidité et de l'évacuer efficacement. De plus, elle ne conserve pas les odeurs, contrairement à d’autres matériaux synthétiques. D’un autre côté, le polyester est le résultat de plusieurs réactions chimiques à partir de pétrole brut ou encore de plastique recyclé. Bien que le polyester est relativement stable et peu toxique, les composés chimiques entrant dans sa fabrication sont généralement poisons et cancérigènes(1). De plus, le plastique en tant que perturbateur endocrinien a déjà fait l'objet d'études scientifiques(2).


2. La forme

 

Un bon oreiller devrait être “compartimenté”, c’est à dire qu’il devrait avoir différentes épaisseurs à différents endroits. Par exemple, il devrait être moins épais au centre pour préserver la courbe cervicale lorsque l’on dort sur le dos et plus épais sur les côtés pour bien supporter la tête lorsque l'on dort sur le côté. Ainsi, un oreiller uniforme ayant une seule fermeté ne s'adaptera pas aux différentes postures que vous adopterez durant la nuit.


 

 

3. Le prix et la durabilité

 

De manière générale, on devrait payer entre 50 $ et 100 $ pour un bon oreiller. N’oubliez pas, on passe en moyenne, le tiers de notre vie sur un oreiller. Ainsi, ce dernier doit être considéré comme un bon investissement, autant d’un point de vue du confort que de la santé. Payer en deçà de 50 $ pour un oreiller, je crois que ça n’en vaut pas la peine alors que payer plus de 100 $, c’est du superflu. En moyenne, un oreiller a une durée de vie entre 2 et 5 ans. Encore une fois, la durabilité est influencée par le type de matériau. Les fibres naturelles ont tendance à avoir une durée de vie plus longue que les fibres synthétiques. Cependant, n’hésitez pas à laver et à mettre votre oreiller en fibre de polyester dans la sécheuse, vous prolongerez sa durée de vie et lui redonnerez du volume.


 

Est-ce que cette chronique a réussi à répondre à vos interrogations? Sinon, n’hésitez pas à nous les poser ou encore à nous les écrire!

 

Dans une prochaine chronique, j’aborderai le cas des matelas. Vous aurez alors tous les outils pour avoir un sommeil récupérateur!
