These are cushions that are straight or flexible in shape to allow your lower back to maintain its natural curve. Using Everlasting Comfort Lumbar Support Pillow for Office Desk Chair – Memory Foam Back Cushion (Black) when sitting will help you keep good posture and reduce strain on your lower spine muscles.
How can you choose one that’s right for you?
There are many different types of back supports available – choosing the right one can depend on how you sit at work, what chair you use, and whether it has adequate back support already installed. If you sit with poor posture (hunched over) but would like to give yourself extra support, try using seats; an inflatable cushion designed to provide lower back support when inflated by the user.
If you are looking for extra back support for a chair, padded cushions and chair glides for metal legs are designed to attach to the seat of your chair using straps or fitting clips. Some models can be filled with water or sand which stay comfortably cool during hot spells but work harder in colder weather. Many have covers that can be removed and washed, so it’s easy to keep them clean. Finally, there are ‘boomerang’ shaped cushions that sit behind
What should you look for?
Because everyone has their own individual needs, finding a one-size-fits-all solution is impossible – even if your workstation doesn’t change, the amount of support you need will be different depending on how much time you spend sitting in front of your computer. So for this reason it is best to try several shapes and sizes before deciding which suits you best.
It’s also worth thinking about if other people would like to use the same cushion; some back support can be shared by two or more people because they’re adjustable (you might want to get them measured up at work, however). It’s also important that whatever shape you choose fits well into the chair – too big and it could over-balance back towards you putting pressure on your lower back. However, make sure not to choose one that’s too small either or it won’t give you the support you need.
Reasons to buy
Buying a lumbar support pillow for an office desk chair can also be used to help medical problems such as sciatica – a sharp, shooting pain that radiates from the lower back down into your leg or buttocks. It’s caused by pressure on or damage to the sciatic nerve which runs through your back and lower limbs. If you have recently lost weight these cushions might prove invaluable. For example, if after slimming down you find that your current workstation/chair is now causing you too much discomfort makes sure to hunt for a cushion with good adjustability – this will enable you to adapt it to perfectly suit your needs.
Other types can be used in conjunction with chairs and weight loss programs (such as ‘slimming belts’). These work by applying pressure over the waist area which encourages greater metabolism, increasing your ability to burn fat.
How much should you spend?
If you want a one-size-fits-all cushion, make sure to shop at Everlasting Comfort; this may sound like a lot of money but when compared to the cost of treating back problems later on in life they’re well worth it. If you have medical issues, then it’s worth spending more – if possible speak to your GP or physiotherapist about their requirements and inquire about any special offers available through them.
