(Health-NewsWire.Net, March 31, 2015 ) Miami, Florida -- Back pain is common. In the U.S., over 3 million visits to the emergency department are made annually for back pain symptoms. Worldwide, 84% of people will experience low back pain in their lifetime. Back pain can be acute, sub-acute, or chronic. It most often occurs in the lower part of the back. With proper self-care, most acute cases resolve within 4 - 6 weeks. Two-thirds of those patients, however, will have another episode of back pain within 12 months.
Sciatica is a term used to describe the symptoms of leg pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness that travel down the low back via the sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. Sciatica (sometimes known as radiculopathy) is a description of symptoms, not a diagnosis. A herniated disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and spondylolisthesis can all cause sciatica.
Patients may experience pain or numbness, which can occur in both legs, or on just one side. Other symptoms include a feeling of weakness or heaviness in the buttocks or legs. Symptoms are usually present or will worsen only when the person is standing or walking upright.
The Cushion Care Memory Foam Seat Cushion may help patients with lower back pain in the alleviation of pain. When sitting for long periods of time, blood circulation along the spine is interrupted, causing more pain. With the use of the office chair seat cushion, customers may now experience extra comfort and their back and buttocks.
Danielle S, a reviewer from Amazon, shares, "I gave purchased a couple different seat cushions because I have a sit down job and office chairs get might uncomfortable! So, honestly, i love it!!!! As I said, I have tried other cushions, including those as seen on TV ones. And they never work! They feel great for a few minutes and then suddenly you feel like you are on a work, or they are not soft enough to conform to a comfortable level. I received this cushion today so I took it to work. I really love it! Perfect size and thickness, and just soft enough to conform correctly while still providing cushion. My back has not felt this good at the end of a work day since I started this job! We k ow good shoes are important, but when you have a sit down job, as I do, a better seat is more important. I am even less tired today than most days when I got off work. A good cushion can make for a great day and this one knocked it out of the park!"
