/* 468x60, */

There are many conditions that are associated with poor posture and wrong bodily position that may grow worse if not treated immediately. Many people get headaches, back and neck strain and fatigue due to difficulty in sleeping due to wrong position of the body. The inconveniences and pain caused by all the consequences of poor posture interfere with ones daily activities and work. There are many who suffer in silence, but there is a way to mitigate these conditions.

The best solution is to improve ones posture. One of the ways to do just that is to get support for the back. A back support cushion can do wonders for your posture whether you are lying down or sitting. This kind of pillow can help take out the discomforts due to bad posture and lack of support for the lower back. Now you can say goodbye to back and neck pains, headaches and sleepless nights.

How does a back support cushion work? Your spine supports your upper body and it is most subjected to stress whenever you are seated doing something or lying on your back. Whenever we sit down and work on something, we tend to extend our necks causing the spine to move forward. Doing this for extended periods can strain the ligaments and the muscles that surround the spine which results to discomfort. A back support cushion can ease the pain and discomfort by taking out the tension felt by the muscles and the ligaments in the lower back. Since the spine is pushed forward whenever one is seated and with the neck stretched forward, one needs to guide the backbone back to its S-shaped configuration. Using a back support pillow is one of the easiest and less straining ways to bring back this S-shaped configuration. This way, the lower back muscles and ligaments will not tense up. This leads to a better posture and less pain.

There are many kinds of back support pillows available in the market. There is a kind of back support cushion that is designed especially for those who sit in extended periods (i.e. those who work in offices and desk jobs). They are designed to fit in most conventional office chairs so that they would be able to effectively keep the ideal gap between the lower back and the backrest of a chair. There is also a back support pillow available for those who experience back pains whenever they drive. These pillows are smaller than the usual back support cushion in stores because they are designed to fit just into the drivers seat.

Before buying a support pillow, consult with your doctor regarding your back pains, headaches and other symptoms. There might be other reasons for the symptoms you are having. Your doctor will even help you choose the best back support or program that will best fit you and your condition.
