What is lumbar support?

Category: Health & Beauty


Lumbar SupportThe lumbar region is comprised of five vertebrae, located in the lower back, which are the largest and strongest movable components of the spinal column and are vital for strength, rotation, and flexibility in the human body. Lumbar support is essentially just a way of targeting and supporting these areas with the use of specifically designed devices. These devices can be used by individuals that are sitting, walking, or standing. Many people have lumbar support options added to everyday items such as office chairs, recliners, and car seats. Special lumbar support cushions have also become popular for maintaining and supporting the normal curve in your back and the surrounding muscles. Individuals that suffer from back pain will often find it necessary to use these products to help promote the overall health of your lower back.
