My husband’s back pain has improved a great deal since we got our new mattress. He’s sleeping much better and isn’t popping so many ibuprofen pills. He says he’s still experiencing back pain when he sits in his office chair, however, and he doesn’t like sitting on the dining room chairs, either. It didn’t help to buy regular decorative seat cushions; Ben still feels better if he moves to a padded folding chair.
I looked online to see if I could find any products that would help with this problem, and discovered a gel cushion designed for people with back pain. These cushions relieve pressure on the spine. The information explains that a gel seat cushion is especially helpful for a person who has to sit all day, just like Ben does. It sounds like people are increasingly interested in placing a gel cushion on the surfaces that cause them back pain while they are sitting. Some people are uncomfortable in the car, for instance. Others are uncomfortable sitting on a hard surface, like Ben is when sitting at the dining room table. The gel seat cushions get good reviews, and I see that chiropractors recommend them. I’m going to order a couple for Ben and see if this resolves the problem.
