Most episodes of back pain last a few days and have completely resolved within a few weeks. If you have new back pain, you should contact your doctor to see if you need further evaluation. There are also a few warning signs that may indicate a problem that needs immediate evaluation:
All in all, this cushion performs well in our providing comparable performance to the other top offerings. The added thickness can make it more intrusive for chairs with already reasonable lumbar support so do take that into consideration. The 60 day warranty and return period also fails to hold up to the competition. That said, the lower price of the black color model and wider variety of colors does make up for it. With a 4.4 star rating and generally quite positive reviews, this cushion is definitely worth considering.

OVERWEIGHT: While it seems intuitive that LBP and excess weight could be related, a 2007 paper in the Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development says the science cannot determine whether they are in fact directly related, under what circumstances they are related, how they become related, the strength of relationship (if one does in fact exist), and the impact of a change in one condition on the other. In other words, we don’t know for sure.

Massage therapy does not appear to provide much benefit for acute low back pain. A 2015 Cochrane review found that for acute low back pain massage therapy was better than no treatment for pain only in the short-term. There was no effect for improving function. For chronic low back pain massage therapy was no better than no treatment for both pain and function, though only in the short-term. The overall quality of the evidence was low and the authors conclude that massage therapy is generally not an effective treatment for low back pain.
Cetyl myristoleate (CMO) – An oil found typically in fish and dairy butter, CMO acts as a joint lubricant and an anti-inflammatory.
