Sleeping without a pillow deprives your neck of the support it needs during the night. Without one, your neck will have to work extra hard to support the weight of your head, which puts severe strain on your neck muscles. There is actually no possible position in which you can sleep in without a pillow that won't strain your neck, and the only way to avoid this unnecessary neck strain is to use at least one pillow.
