Orthopaedic back supports cushion for added comfort
Drive, work, and relax in comfort with an orthopaedic back support cushion. There are few things more debilitating than chronic back pain. It can flare up at almost any time whether you have been active, digging in the garden or carrying boxes around the house, or else sitting uncomfortably for a long time. Often a muscular back issue develops as the result of a build-up of stress within the back, and so even if you do not have a history of back pain it may be worth taking the simple preventative measure of purchasing a seat support.
Lumbar back support cushions
Lumbar back cushions help support your back by reducing stress and pressure on the lumbar back muscles. If you have an existing back problem this will help to relieve strain on the muscles during the healing process. It will also help prevent future tears and strains by decreasing the build-up of stress within the muscle.
Wedge cushions are placed under your bum. They help you to sit upright and prevent you from slouching. Slouching is a huge cause of back pain in later life, as it places a great amount of stress on your lower back. A wedge cushion will also help prevent numbness in the thighs, hips, and buttocks.
Considerations when buying a back support cushion
In time you will spill things on your cushion, be that coffee or food. It is therefore worth considering buying either a leather or faux leather cushion that can be easily wiped or else a cushion with a removable washable cover.
If you are buying a back support cushion for your car seat or office chair you should make sure that it is attachable. Many cushions will come with adjustable straps to fix the cushion in place, as they lose their effectiveness and comfort if they slide.
