Lumbar Cushions: The Best Ally To Avoid Lower Back Pain

Modern life has given us an unbelievable amount of advantages, but it also has its side effects: perhaps the most well known, famous one is how it has separated us from our more "natural" state: we have become sedentary, we spend most of our days in front of a computer and we barely move around, exercise or stretch. This comes with its own plethora of side effects, most of them health issues: bad posture, stiff muscles, tiredness, fatigue, headaches and of course the well known lumbar pain.

While most of us cannot do without the long hours sitting (specially those whose profession forces them to such as lorry drivers, taxi drivers or those that work in an office environment) there are many ways to prevent the lower back pain that it can cause.

Xtreme Comfort: The lumbar cushion experts

Lumbar pain can be too much sometimes, to the point of being disruptive and stopping you from carrying on with your life as usual. Not to mention, it can cause chronic issues down the road; that is why numerous enterprises have put all their means forward to find a solution to it or at least dim it.

Xtreme Comfort has put all their years of experience to the task of investigating and finding out exactly what type of lumbar cushion is the best to prevent and avoid lower back pain, 

As it turns out, neither car seats nor office chairs have been created with people that have to sit 8 hours on end in them, and while some are more comfortable than others barely any provide the good lumbar and cervical support that promotes a good posture, keeps your back and neck straight and properly aligned and prevents pain and back and neck issues. Also, common sitting postures such as crossing your legs put additional strain on the spine and might even cause (or worsen) postural issues.

If you drive for a living:

If you drive for a living, take steps to stay in tip top shape: take regular breaks where you stretch and move around, exercise regularly and eat a healthy, varied diet as this might prevent some lower back pain issues. If you want to forget about them entirely, better your life by buying a car seat cushion with extra lumbar support that will keep your spine straight in a comfortable manner while you drive.

If you are an office worker:

When you work in an office, do not forget to stretch and move around in your coffee or smoke breaks as this will prevent a lot of the muscle tightness that comes with sitting for hours on end. There are special stretches for office workers that target those areas that take the most strain, such as the back, the sides and the wrists. 

A seat cushion that provides both lumbar and cervical support could be a great addition to your office chair: it will help you stay seated in a proper posture effortlessly, which will prevent not only lower back pain but also the headaches caused by bad posture!
