Sitting back supports help the maintain and enhance the natural "S" shaped curvature of the spine which helps to maintain back health and a feeling of well-being. At SUPPORT4PHYSIO we make every effort to stock the most recent range of proven medical devices which enhance posture, including seat wedges, chair back supports, seat rolls and neck pillows, which must not be over looked when considering spinal health.
Seat wedges sit on the base of a chair and tilt the hips forwards whilst sitting, enhancing the natural "S" shaped curvature of the spine whilst lumbar rolls, whether "D" shaped or "O" shaped sit against the back and prevent it from sagging into an unsuitable position, thereby reducing strain on the muscles in the back and preventing the build up of back pain. Correctly designed neck pillows help to prevent stress and strain on the upper spine whilst sleeping and come in a range of sizes, with or without memory foam.
All back care support aids have one purpose; to reduce the stresses and strain on the spine, thereby reducing back pain, whether that be lower, mid or upper back pain.
