So you don't have a whole lot of money to spend on an ergonomic chair? Have you ever considered that you can get the lumbar support you need with a lumbar cushion, lumbar pillow or lumbar roll? These inexpensive lumbar support items can provide good relief to your lumbar support issues. Let's look at a few external lumbar support options:
Simple Lumbar Support pillows:
The most inexpensive of the lumbar support group, it provides remedial support for mild lumbar issues, or if you are sitting in a chair with no lumbar support, these are great add-ons.
<< Featured here is the Obus Forme Black Lumbar Pillow with Massage ; it gently supports the natural curvature of your lower back, preventing the tendency to slouch. Also, this lumbar support enhances overall posture by supporting proper spinal alignment.
It also includes a soothing massage capability to make your sitting experience even more comfortable. You can use it at the office, at home, or in the car.
<< This lumbar support pillow, Obus Forme Ultra Forme Backrest is a bit different from the previous lumbar support in that it features support for your entire back.
By shifting the spine into a positive neutral curve, the Obus Ultra Forme Backrest's innovative design relieves pressure on the lumbar discs and lower back muscles. This in turn reduces muscle contraction by an amazing 50%, dramatically alleviating much of the strain typically felt in these muscles. It also comes in three different sizes to fit your back specifically in small, medium, and large.
Backrests constitute a different type of Lumbar Cushion. While with the backrest the individual lumbar support is still there, the Backrest lumbar support puts an emphasis on supporting the entire back, up to the shoulders. What these lumbar supports can help is for individuals who suffer from more present and severe lumbar pain. They are also very helpful in assisting with correct posture, and the lesser known but very much an issue upper back pain.
<< This lumbar support, the Obus FormeÂ® Lowback Backrest Support, is one of the original back supports that take supporting your entire back into consideration, and one of the first to be endorsed by the Canadian Chiropractic Association (the manufacturer of this product is Canadian).
On innovative feature of this back support is the removable lumbar support. This simple feature allows for adding in extra lumbar support if needed, or removing it if the support is too much.
The main benefit of this back support is the back height and width. It covers the entire back, thus encouraging proper posture and support for the wide back range.
For even more support all the way to the head/neck, look into the High Back version of this back support, which extends higher (30.5" max height) than the traditional version. It is also available in extra wide and extra tall for larger people.
<< This is an upgraded version of the more simple air pump lumbar support previously shown. It is a combination of the backrests and the inflatable lumbar support - essentially bring the best of the back support and lumbar support into a great lumbar pain solution.
The Obus Forme® Customair® Backrest Support is great because it gives you the full upper back support with a very customized lumbar support options. With the hand pump, you can shoose how much pressure you want on your lumbar region. And, as with all these lumbar support pillows, it is movable to whatever location you want.
