Best Lumbar Supports 2019
Thursday, 7 March 2019
The lumbar relates to the area in the lower back, specifically around the spine just above the pelvis. Lumbar pain affects many of us, with recent studies estimating that lower back pain will impact anywhere between 60% and 70% of people in industrialised countries. Causes vary from bad posture, to family history to sports injuries, and the level of pain can vary between minor and completely debilitating.
You don't have to suffer in silence. Whether you suffer from a mild but irritating pain that can prevent you from picking up things from the floor, or a severe pain that can prevent you from getting up in the morning, there are plenty of lumbar supports that can help to relieve pain and make living a little more comfortable. This article demonstrates our Best Lumbar Supports, ideal for helping you find the best lumbar support for you.
What Causes Lumbar Pain?
Lower back pain isn't usually anything to worry about, and will usually improve within a few weeks or months. The lumbar relates specifically to the area directly above the pelvis around the lower spine, and pain here is common because it's the area of the spine that supports your entire body.
As a result bad posture is one of the key causes of lumbar pain, which is why pain is more common in athletes and all-day manual workers who can expect to put more pressure on their lumbar region than others. Other aggravating factors include herniated discs, a lack of exercise, sciatica, sprains and strains. Finally we would always recommend that if your pain is becoming more intense and gets worse during the night, to contact your doctor or GP immediately.
