Best Seat Cushion to Relieve Back Pain
"Oh my aching back!" The pain from our spine shoots out into all areas of our bodies.
I have experienced it and have sought solutions to relieve my back pain. My lower back hurts after sitting too long.
How can you get relief from this horrible back pain that affects your whole body?
When I started seeing my alternative chiropractor, I had back pain and neck pain. The pain all stems from the nerves in the spine.
This was not a great revelation to me, but I had never paid enough attention to try to find solutions to my pain. All I knew was I did not feel good.
Her chiropractic advice was to get a Seat Solution Orthopedic Seat Cushion. This little black, wedge-shaped cushion has been a blessing to my back and neck pain.
How Seat Solution Orthopedic Seat Cushions Help Alleviate Back Pain
When sitting on the wedge-shape of the cushion, it causes your back to tilt into a proper S-posture position. The correct posture gives relief to your vertebrae that is pinching nerve endings creating the pain. At the center of the thickest portion of the wedge seat is a cut out U-shape for your tailbone to rest without pressure. This is the key to lessening the pressure on your back and spine. When your tailbone is on a hard surface, it pushes up on your spine. This pressure causes your spine to lock up in different areas. The Seat Solution Orthopedic Seat Cushion provides relief for this pain-causing pressure.
It is 12 inches wide and 10 inches deep. The portion with the U-shaped cut out is 4 inches high. It is made of 100% polyurethane memory foam. It is black and is covered on one side with micro-suede material and faux leather on the other. You can use either side.
Where Should You Use the Seat Solution Orthopedic Seat Cushion?
I use my seat cushion everywhere. I have one in every kitchen chair sitting around my table. I care more about being pain-free than I do about aesthetics in this case.
I have one in my vehicle, and I also take it with me everywhere I go. In the U-shaped section of the cushion, there is a handle that makes it easy to carry.
I have even taken it to friend and family get-togethers. I don't take the chance of spending hours visiting while causing my spine to lock up on me as I sit on a hard chair. Even if the chair has a cushion, many times even the cushions are not enough to protect my tailbone.
I am much more comfortable when I go watch a football or basketball game when I have my seat cushion. As a parent with many sporting and school events, the orthopedic seat cushion has saved my behind many times over.
Other Reasons to Have a Seat Solution Orthopedic Seat Cushion
I have had friends who have had tailbone injuries from falls on concrete or the ice. I always recommend the seat cushion for them.
Many doctors recommend some type of cushion for these types of injuries. My chiropractor recommended mine.
If you are a thin person, sitting on hard surfaces is more likely to cause back pain. Your tailbone connects instantly with the hard surface and compacts those vertebrae. Don't do it to yourself. Get one of these seat cushions and keep it with you. It will save you pain and money in the long run.
I do not go anywhere without my easy-to-carry, lightweight, comfortable Seat Solution Orthopedic Seat Cushion. It relieves the pressure on my back and stops the pain before it starts.
This unique seat cushion helps with tailbone and back injuries. I have experienced it myself. If my back is out of alignment, I go to my alternative chiropractor then sit on my seat cushion in the car, at home, and at work. It helps my spine maintain its adjustment.
I keep several at home for my dining room and computer chairs. I use and carry one in my car. I have one in my chair at school. I recommend you keep them wherever you must sit for long periods of time.
