My coworker bought this first & everyone who sat in her chair remarked how nice it feels on your back. I had to buy one after trying it! I had a different one prior that is more curved in the middle, but it didn’t help my back as much. I have herniated discs and this is the best cushion of 3 I’ve tried. The cover & cushion part are very soft & pliable, yet gives support. I like the height of it, doesn’t slip down like my shorter one. I think it’s totally worth the cost for the level of comfort.
I bought two cushion supports for my car seat (which have helped a lot). I'm driving a 2017 Prius and the drivers seat (combined with other factors I'm sure) caused my back to have incredibly severe, painful spasms. I've been doing many things to help Heal it (more details below) and one of them was to buy support cushions.
The first cushion I bought (and I'm still using) is a wedge shaped cushion to sit on. My seat is slanted oddly so the front of the seat is higher than the back of the seat which irritates my back ... I wanted it to be more even so the wedge cushion made by Clever Yellow works well enough, and is available on Amazon.
The second is this cushion to support my lumbar region. I like it because it has a convex (rather than concave) shape... most lumbar support cushions seem to be concave and that tends to bother my back. This cushion was one of the only convex cushions I could find and I love it!! When I first sat back on it I felt the relief up my spine/back and felt like I was entering a transcendent state. It really was that helpful to me. I also like it because it's taller than most, just the right amount of firmness for me, very thick, has a removable cover, and really supports the length of my back (taller cushion than most).
I tried this cushion on a variety of different couches and chairs in addition to my car seat and it worked well on most of them. It was only a bit too thick on one, for me ... a traditional, rolling office chair. It felt like I was falling off the chair a bit because of it at first, although I adjusted it and it was ok. I don't tend to need a cushion on that chair anyway because it offers adequate lumbar support. It *is* a thick pillow. So that is something to consider when purchasing. It pushes me forward a bit in my car seat, which I actually like (I just put my seat back), but that may be an issue for some people. To me, because it is thick, it is also firm. I can sink back and still feel very supported. The cushion doesn't get flattened out like some.
I also tried another lumbar cushion by NurtureSoft but it was more concave shaped than I thought it would be from the pictures and it was not as thick or as firm. It didn't work out for me but it got very good reviews so it may work better for you! It was roughly the same dimensions of this one I think, but rather than being taller (vertically), it's wider (horizontally). I wanted and needed more support up the length of my spine. Someone else might want/need more support on the sides. That could help determine which one you choose. Plus your height/torso length! So it may take a little trial and error to find the right one. Luckily, the Xtreme Comforts cushion was my first choice and ended up being my favorite! :)
Some other things that have helped my back, that might help you too ... * The book Freedom from Pain by Peter Levine. I can't write much about this one yet, as I just received it today, but I'm looking forward to reading it. I've been doing Trauma/Tension Release Exercises (TRE) multiple times a day and they have really really helped me (along with gradually increasing the distance of my walks), so I'm optimistic about learning about other exercises in the book! * Also planning on buying insoles and new shoes, as well as do Network Spinal Analysis at the chiropractor (a very gentle approach ... traditional chiropractor tends to trigger my body and make the bracing worse). I'm hoping the chiropractor might be able to suggest insoles/shoes and posture-correction apparel as well.
A month ago I was unable to move because of my back pain. It's gotten much better and I have Faith it will continue to do so! Grateful for these supportive products to help me function better along the way!! If you're reading this and in pain you're in my heart and prayers. Hope you feel better soon!!! :)
I bought this pillow for my wife to use while we are driving. Suffice it to say that modern bucket seats and my wife don't get along. It is not so much a back issue as it is a shoulder problem. Her ideal seat would be a flat backed bench seat, good luck finding that. Bucket seats anymore have such a curvature that they tend to push your arm and shoulder forward. Not a big problem for most people, but if you have had shoulder surgery it can be very bothersome. We have actually made decisions about which cars to buy based on how good or bad the bucket seat is for her shoulder. We have tried a variety of home made solutions that don't work very well and look like crap. The Xtreme Comforts cushion works great and is stylish enough to fit right in with the cars interior. No more giant hunks of foam rubber sitting in the front seat.
it was very uncomfortable & stiff. I tried to return the unopened - unused (still enclosed in the plastic zipper bag) back support cushion and the seller would not accept the return. Although it did not say that on the product information. It did say, "LIFETIME REPLACEMENT GUARANTEE- Give yourself or another the best gift of comfort. If anything goes wrong, Xtreme Comforts has your back!" which I understood to mean money back guarantee. This is bad advertisement. I am unhappy with the product and even more unhappy with the seller not making the no-return policy clear on the Amazon site.
My parents were in a car accident 3+ months ago and I bought this for them. My dad LOVES it, and since it was technically his birthday gift, he gets it more of the time, but my mom steals it from him too. Looks like I'll need to send another their way. It is reportedly soft and extremely comfortable to use. They were both in a car accident 3 months ago and my mom has a compression fracture in her back and my dad has had back problems for years. I also bought the matching seat cushion and it also won the battle of comparison, as I bought them a Wuudi cushion also, and they did not like that as much claiming it was hard for them both. I'll be buying again.
