Best Products For Relief and Management of Back Pain

Updated on December 5, 2011

A common way in which people experience back pain is sitting with poor posture. When slouching, the front part of your spine experiences increased compression and can result in pain following prolonged periods of sitting. A lumbar support is a great way to enhance your posture and allow sitting to be more tolerable.

Back pain that is experienced from standing can often be due to an instability or weak musculature. Using a double pull back support provides stability at the low back and can relieve pain experienced during standing and walking. Using a lumbar support during sitting may also provide tactile feedback as a reminder to sit with good posture. The lumbar support is intended to allow increased activity and to help provide external stability while you heal and work on core strength, which provides internal stability.

The McKenzie Lumbar Roll is another helpful tool to enhance sitting posture and is light and portable enough to have great use in the car or office. The roll is made of soft foam and is a great way to fill in the lumbar curvature when sitting. Car seats are often round in shape and provide poor low back support. This roll can be left in the car to improve driving posture and tolerance.

Aside from the tools already mentioned, having a chair with a good lumbar support is ideal. There are several good chairs and it is important to pick one that is adjustable, comfortable, and supportive. The stool here is a great chair for those who work in a variety of positions and with their hands. A stool is versatile and this one has a great lumbar shaped back rest. So for those who may be up and down frequently and working with a variety of tools and in different positions, this stool helps support your back while still providing adaptability.

Foam Rollers have gained popularity in the last several years as they have numerous uses. They are a great exercise tool for training your core muscles. Your lower abdominals are important at keeping your low back stable and the tranversus abdominus is the muscle that should do most of the work, not your back. The foam roller provides an unstable surface which is a great tool in training lower abdominal strength and stability. There are several uses, so the investment is more than worth it. See the video below for some great ideas.

      Thank you so much, that has been my worry this last week. I realized I had been lazy on my yoga schedule and I definitely pay no attention to the way I sit and move. I just corrected the way I sit in front of my computer!!! Thanks for the video, I go try that one.
