Sleeping: Individual needs vary. If the mattress is too soft, many people will experience backaches. The same is true for sleeping on a hard mattress. Trial and error may be required. A piece of plywood between the box spring and mattress will stiffen a soft bed. A thick mattress pad will help soften a mattress that is too hard.
Back.com is an educational site for people with chronic pain and/or back pain. It was created to help support people with general questions about surgical options, and to provide information on options for chronic pain treatment and relief.
Qualified chiropractic, osteopathic, and naturopathic physicians are reliable, as they have received extensive training in the management of musculoskeletal disorders during their course of graduate healthcare training, which lasts between four to six years. These health experts have comprehensive training in musculoskeletal management.
Treatment for back pain depends on what kind of pain you have, and what is causing it. It may include hot or cold packs, exercise, medicines, injections, complementary treatments, and sometimes surgery.
The lumbar cushion has a curved shape to follow the contours of the spine. This ensures that your back is always in contact with the cushion. Without support, the muscles in your lower back remain taut to keep you supported, leading to the tell-tale build-up of lower back pain.
Built in lumbar support can also be a red flag. While some built in lumbar supports can be useful, they are limited by their inability to be transported. They also tend to have less structural support, and are thus less effective than traditional lumbar supports.
Several NIH-funded clinical trials and other in patients aim to improve treatment options and prevention strategies for chronic low back pain, as well as add to the evidence base about existing treatments. A multi-year multicenter study called the Spine Patient Outcomes Research Trial (SPORT) compared the most commonly used surgical and nonsurgical treatments for patients with the three most common diagnoses for which spine surgery is performed: intervertebral disc herniation, spinal stenosis, and degenerative spondylisthesis. SPORT represented the largest clinical investigation to date looking at treatment results for these disabling and costly causes of chronic low back pain.

The US National Library of Medicine has information on a study done to determine whether a lumbar support pillow, outfitted with a cut-out to accommodate the bulk of posterior pelvic soft tissue volume, is more effective than a standard chair in promotion a neutral spine posture and improving subjective and objective measures of comfort in healthy individuals and patients with lower back pain.
Consider this: Back pain is most commonly blamed on things like herniated (slipped) lumbar discs, poor postural alignment, lack of core strength, tight hamstrings or hip flexors, and being overweight. And it’s these factors that many popular treatment and prevention strategies claim to improve (or cure).
While this study used a pain population and quantified the degree of discomfort in different seating systems, it has some limitations. Firstly, the sensors used for determining the thoracolumbar and lumbar postures were placed on the skin surface. While the electromagnetic equipment and methods used in the current study are commonly adopted in biomechanics research , it is possible that a more direct method, such as radiographic measurement, would have yielded more accurate angular changes of the vertebral column [16,31]. The benefit of using the current equipment, however, was that it posed little to no risk to the participants, and it avoided any harmful effects of radiation that are associated with radiographic investigation .
Two inserts ensure firmly support of the thoracic and lumbar part of the vertebral column;. 1 x Support Belt. Features: breathable, mesh fabric, perspiration, light, refreshing. We will try our best t…
According to a study published in the journal Anesthesiology, a new high-frequency form of spinal cord stimulation therapy has the capacity to deliver more effective pain relief without any unwanted side effects.

Original McKenzie has a unique size and shape to support your back. Rather than the shape of a typical lumbar pillow, the lumbar roll is shaped like a log. The log shape fits snugly against your back along the natural curvature of your spine, helping you maintain good posture. The foam conforms to the shape of your back, while the moisture-wicking fabric keeps you dry and cool. It comes with an adjustable strap that secures the roll to any size or shaped seat. The strap can also be used for transporting the roll itself. It measures 11 inches long with a diameter of 4.75 inches. The cover can be removed and machine-washed.
