Tips to choose a good back support pillow
There is a wide range of different types and brands of back support cushions in the market. It might be confusing when we have to choose the best suitable back pillow for our needs. In order to make the best informed decision we need to take into account some key factors. First, we need to select a back support cushion that is made of orthopedic foam or high quality memory foam, in order to ensure proper support. Quality is one of the most important factors in choosing a back pillow, same way as when you are buying a bed.
With a back pillow you need to make sure that you get a good support for your body. Also you need to ensure that your lumbar support pillow has the proper thickness to support the weight of your back. Because everyone has different body shapes you need to find a pillow that has a curve matching your back to ensure you get support through the whole back curve. Another important factor to check is if the pillow has a removable and washable cover. This can extend the lifespan of the pillow and helps to keep it cleaner.Bottom of Form SSome back support pillows have also battery operated built in mechanism for back massage.

The technical details
When we sit down, for most of us our spine takes the shape of the letter “C”, in a position with our shoulders forward of our hips. This is an unhealthy position for our spine. The healthy position is when our back is shaped in the form of the letter “S”. However, for holding a healthy sitting position our back muscles need extra effort. We need to train them to remember this posture and few of us actually sit in this correct position. A back support cushion is therefore the best help you can get. Its special design offers you total support for your back without restricting your movement in any way. The back support pillow is designed to fit the shape of your back, from your hips to your upper back, without putting pressure on your spinal column.
