Back pain is one of the most commonly faced problems by people. To relieve the pain, most of us depend on medicines. Whereas today, a cushion can easily treat the pain. Surprising, right? But it is true. Let us look at causes, prevention of back pain, and how the cushion helps get rid of it.
Causes of Back Pain
Strain, tension, or injury in the muscles are the common cause of back pain. Strain usually occurs due to incorrect or heavy lifting, sudden movements, and over-exertion.
Vertebrae are interlocking bones that are stacked on one another and form a spine. And the area between each vertebra is cushioned by tissues called disks. Any injury in these disks leads to severe back pain.
Often, these disks are ruptured or bulged, which further compresses the nerves and causes back pain. When the bulging disk presses the nerve, the pain sometimes travels down to the back of the leg, called sciatica.
Damage in the cartilage of lower back joints.
It is the condition when the bones of the spine, vertebrae lose their density or become thin. Which further causes compression fractures and leads to severe back pain.
Back pain also stems from poor posture and everyday activities. We often hunch our shoulders and crane our necks downwards. Over time, the position results in increased back and shoulder pain.
Not just these, any infection in the spine or sleeping disorder also leads to back pain.

How is Lumbar Support Cushion Useful?
By the name you must have understood, the cushion for supporting your lower back. Often back pain arises due to poor posture when sitting. So, the cushion is specially designed for those who spend prolonged periods sitting at a desk or on lengthy commutes every day.
Wherever you sit, be it your office chair, dining chair, car, or airplane seat, the cushion is sure to provide you exceptional lumbar assistance to ensure you sit in a comfortable position. It even eases you from the stress of your back during long car rides or flights, as you can easily carry it with yourself.
You no longer need to check if your spine is straight, your body weight is balanced, take medicine for back pain before heading off, or rub your back with a pain-relieving balm. A single addition of a lumbar support cushion to your chair can free you from everything.
