Complete Physiotherapy gave to me…support for my aching back!”
With many of us sitting for numerous hours per day our spine takes the brunt of poor posture.
Slouching doesn’t always cause discomfort, but over time this position can place strain on already sensitised muscles and soft tissues. This strain may increase tension in the muscles, which may in turn cause pain.
Getting into the habit of sitting correctly and moving frequently is vital to avoid back and neck pain. It may not feel comfortable initially because your muscles have not been conditioned to support you in the correct position.
How does it work?
The Original McKenzie Lumbar Roll back support cushion promotes normal alignment of the lower back when sitting. The human spine naturally forms an S shape, with the spine curving forwards at the lower back, outwards at the middle back and forwards again at the neck. When we sit we have a tendency to slump, meaning the lumbar spine drops backwards, reversing its natural curve. In this slumped position the muscles at the bottom of the back are stretched, often leading to back and neck pain. The Lumbar Roll can help to prevent and relieve this discomfort by promoting correct posture and the natural ‘S’ shape of the spine.
Versatile and durable
The roll is positioned just above waistband level when sitting, to stimulate you to maintain a better sitting posture. The roll is held in place by an elastic strap, the roll is easy and quick to fit to most chairs, so you can move it without difficulty from office to car to dining chair as often as you need.
Lumbar supports are now £15 (normal price £20) Ask one of the Physiotherapy team to show you how to use the lumbar support your back.
