If you’ve got back problems but are really strapped for cash then these 3 little words will change your life – back support cushion.
I’ve been land scaping recently, shovelling rocks and moving dirt and boy has it taken a toll on my back (not to mention my age – I’m not as young as I think anymore). The pain can be masked temporarily with some pain killing tablets but the general soreness lingers on! A good way to ease the pain when sitting down is by using a back support cushion. Not only can I take it with me everywhere but they are cheap enough for me to have one at home but I can get one for work as well.
Think about how much money other alternatives will cost you versus getting a back support cushion:
Ergonomic chars – It’s got more features compared to a back support cushion, yes, but are the extra bells and whistles worth the wads of cash? The back support cushion fairs pretty well against an ergonomic chair some times doing an even better job.
Chiropractor – I wonder how many back support cushions could I buy compared to visiting the chiropractor once a month for 6 months? Quite a few I might imagine.
Taking a day off from work – Remember up top where I said you could take one into work as well? I’ve actually told the boss about my back problems and convinced him to get me one at work. The line I used on him was that it was either a back support cushion or a sick leave day when my back flairs up. I wonder which one he chose?
How does this magical cushion compare to a visit to the massage parlor? Firstly there’s the cost, secondly you can even get support cushsions that come with built in massagers operated by the push of a button and a few batteries. This will help you relieve the tension in your back and also help with blood circulation.
The only thing that I can say is that you must have a go at it yourself in order to experience the benefits of a back support cushion if you’re like me a suffer from back pain.
