The ChiroDoc Coccyx Cushion breathes with the tiny holes in the seat cushion and fits your butt shape. It is not a donut-type pillow that is painful for those people with hemorrhoids. It actually elevates the lower tail bone area known as the coccyx taking pressure off the area without putting pressure on it. I use this cushion when using my laptop writing and that is very often. I have also put it in my driver’s seat when using the car for many hours. I cannot tell you the relief from lower back pain with better posture I have obtained. It does indeed follow the shape of your bottom. When you relieve pressure point pain, you will feel better about sitting.
The navy blue cotton and polyester velour cushion cover is zippered to remove for laundering in the washer on the cool and gentle cycle and it can be put in the dryer on low heat. You can also press it with a cool iron if needed. The interior is memory foam for shape retention.
The cushion is made by Bumtiful® and is unlike other cushions. Chiropractors, physical therapists, doctors, and massage therapists recommend coccyx seat cushions for alleviating lower back pain while sitting at your desk, bleachers at sports events, airplanes, buses, semi-truckers, in wheelchairs, or any place that is hard on your bottom and lower back. This cushion will also provide support for ladies who are pregnant to give them relief from their extra weight and extending their backs rearward adding additional strain during their later 9 months or labor-induced coccydynia.
Sciatica is an agonizing pain making it difficult to walk when the nerves from the lower back refer pain down one or both legs usually to the knees. I know because I’ve had it. If the pain goes beyond your knees, you must consult your healthcare provider. The cushion will take pressure off the lower tailbone back area where sciatica starts. It will additionally stop numb and tingling sensations from sitting for hours on end. Your spine will be straight and retain its natural curve at the lumbar area. This area is known as the lumbosacral spine the lower part of your spinal column made up of many small bones to include the lumbar area and sacrum. This part of the spine connects the spine to the pelvis, bones that too can cause pain at their nerve endings.
Other problems that can be helped are:
|Pelvic pressure and hip pain relief||Bruised, fractured, inflamed or a broken tailbone|
|Herniated, bulging, slipped or prolapsed discs||Piriformis Syndrome|
|Lumbosacral Spondylosis||Lumbar Spinal Stenosis|
|Degenerative disc disease||Sacroiliitis or Spondylolisthesis of the sacrum|
|Pilonidal cyst relief||Subluxation nerve impingement|
|Sacral pressure sores or pressure ulcers||Post coccygectomy surgery recovery|
The soft feeling cushion is firm, will not go flat, and is dust mite resistant. Being hypoallergenic, it is best for those having allergies, asthma, and seasonal hay fever. What severely bothers those with allergies, and others as well, is the breeding and the fecal matter from the mites and their dead bodies. Not a pleasant thought, is it?
The seat cushion is 17.7-inches wide x 13.7-inches front to back x 2.8-inches thick and weighs about a pound for lightweight portability. The side you sit on has a slightly elevated surface while the back side is flat. The slight elevation puts your lower back where it needs to be when sitting.
Gift-wrapping is available for your family and loved ones.
