What does Lumbar Support Do?

Does your spine ever ache in the middle of the day?

Do you suffer from chronic back pain? It’s very common. And, you may wonder if there’s anything you can do to reduce or prevent this problem.

There are a lot of factors that can cause back problems. But, one that’s often overlooked is your posture. You see, you don’t have to sit at a desk all day to feel like you have a bad back. It’s much more likely that you’ll experience back pain if you are sitting and standing in a way that puts pressure on your spine.


Lumbar support is an essential part of maintaining good posture and keeping your back straight and healthy. If you’re suffering from back problems, this will help prevent pain. In this article, I’ll show you how and why lumbar support is so vital for all types of seats.


What A Lumbar Support Pillow Is?

A lumbar support pillow is a piece of equipment that aims to improve your posture. You are advised to get one if you spend many hours sitting at work, in class, or watching TV.

The theory behind it is that a well-proportioned pelvis, and a healthy spine, enable you to maintain correct body mechanics while you are seated. Sitting upright, with your lower back supported, prevents slouching. There are different types of lumbar support pillows available; all are designed to give you support for the area in question (the lumbar region).

A lumbar support pillow will aim to correct the problem by putting pressure on the back where it is needed. The pillow may be designed to lift your lumbar spine, prevent you from slouching or straighten your backbone. They are not necessarily expensive. However, it is important to make sure that the pillow you use fits properly. If it does not fit correctly, it could create more problems.

What types of lumbar support pillows are there?

This is the first thing you’ll want to think about when you buy your lumbar support pillow. There are four main categories of lumbar support pillows available on the market:

 Wedge Pillow

The most popular type of lumbar support pillow is the wedge pillow. It is designed to keep your lower back arched and to raise it away from your upper back. It is made with a solid material, such as plastic, which means that it is easy to use and wash. Wedge pillows often come with a strap so that they can be hung on the back of a door or a hook. Other types of lumbar support pillows include those designed to lift your lower back or keep your spine straight.


The most common type of cotton lumbar support pillows are filled with polyester fibers to offer extra support to your back. This type is often referred to as the “standard” model, as it’s most common and most affordable.


Latex models are very similar to their cotton counterparts in terms of comfort. The difference is that they are typically more durable, and can last longer than cotton.

Memory Foam

Memory foam models provide excellent pressure relief, but don’t provide any added support to your back. If that’s what you want, then these options will suit you well. If you prefer more support, then look for a cotton-latex option.

A well-designed lumbar support pillow should help to prevent poor posture and pain in the lumbar region. These are the key advantages:

  • A pillow designed to lift the lower back is useful because this is where poor posture occurs.
  • Lifting the lower back prevents a slumped posture
  • A pillow that lifts your lower back is more comfortable than one that does not.
  • You can use it all day.
