Have you visited to doctor for back pain lately?
Even if you haven't made an appointment, you might be feeling those telltale aches and strains when you get out of bed or up from your chair. Any time that you stay in the same position for a while, your muscles can grow cold and tense, leaving you to pay the price.
Yet, there are resources that can help.
One of those is an orthopedic seat! How can a single cushion transform your day and improve your life? The answer lies in the targeted support that it offers, which helps keep you comfortable all day long.
Today, we're helping you sort through the options and find the best orthopedic seat cushion on the market. Hint: It's closer than you might think!
What Is an Orthopedic Seat Cushion?
The field of orthodontics is focused on helping to treat a range of conditions, illnesses and illnesses associated with the human skeleton.
For instance, you might visit an orthopedic specialist if you break your wrist or tear a ligament in your knee. This health practitioner can analyze your injury, provide treatment and help guide you down the path to recovery.
In addition, they can also recommend products and procedures to help you stay as comfortable as possible and prevent the pain from reoccurring. Often, this means steering you toward pillows, cushions and devices designed to take the everyday wear and tear off of your joints.
In this case, an orthopedic seat cushion is any type of cushion that is specially designed to support your spine while you sit. Even if you've never experienced a back injury in your life, you can help keep that lucky streak going with one!
Features of the Best Orthopedic Cushions
As you begin your search, you'll find that there isn't exactly a one-size-fits-all solution that will be suitable for all patients. Rather, you'll notice that there are myriad different kinds, each with their own form and function.
Next, let's take a look at what sets the top of the pack apart from the rest.
Memory Foam Construction
Sure, you could head to the nearest big box store and grab any cushion off the shelf. Then, you could take it home and prop it up behind your back while you watch television. Or, you might bring it to work and see if it makes your office chair a little more bearable.
At first, you might be pleasantly surprised by how well it works. Yet, that excitement is bound to be short-lived.
Even the best standard pillow will lose its shape and support over time. This is because most are filled with run-of-the-mill polyester stuffing, which doesn't have the longest performance record. Before long, you'll begin to notice that your backaches are reappearing and your seat no longer feels as plush.
That's why the best orthopedic seating is made from memory foam! Responsive to your body heat, this material conforms to your individual body form, hugging your curves and adapting to your unique shape. This makes it the ultimate universal material that really does work for everyone.
While some manufacturers might claim that their orthopedic cushions are made from memory foam, many are blending the foam with other synthetic materials to stretch it. In turn, this means delivering a watered-down version of the kind that orthopedic doctors really recommend.
That's where we do things a little differently. The orthopedic cushions you'll find in our shop are all made from 100% pure, premium memory foam. This foam is as high quality as the foam used and trusted by the top manufacturers in the world.
Worried about sweating against your cushion? Don't be. In years past, memory foam might have been known for trapping heat, but today's versions are sleeker, cooler and more breathable than ever before.
Take our Back Cushion Lumbar Support Pillow, for instance.
Back Cushion Lumbar Support Pillow
One of our top-selling and best seating options, our Back Cushion Lumbar Support Pillow is designed to deliver around-the-clock comfort when you need it the most.
What makes it so special?
Not only is the cushion made from 100% memory foam, but it's also surprisingly durable and rugged. This way, you don't have to think twice about taking it with you everywhere you go! Designed to help fill in the gap that naturally develops between your chair and your lower back, it alleviates chronic back pain and more evenly distributes your body weight for a less-stressful seating experience.
Need to change seats? Shifting a little as you drive and want to adjust the exact area of support? Both are possible thanks to the cushion's dual adjustable straps that all you to turn any seating surface into its most cushy version!
If you're looking for a cushion that can support your bones and joints while helping you keep your cool, try our Gel Infused Memory Foam Lumbar Support Back Cushion. Made with the same memory foam, it also has cooling properties, including a specially-infused gel, as well as ventilation holes for maximum airflow.
One of the reasons why you might reach for the heating pad after a long day of sitting at work? When your lumbar region (lower back) isn't adequately supported, you'll notice yourself leaning over more and more.
Soon, you might even be fully hunched over your computer, which your shoulders almost touching your ears and your back curved in an unnatural position.
If you find yourself in this predicament often, you're not alone. In fact, according to research, around 80% of Americans will have back problems at least some point in their lives and poor posture is a top contributing factor. Not only does it affect your outward appearance, but it can also do some major damage internally, as well.
Slouching puts extra, unnecessary pressure on the discs located in your back. You'll also carry the extra tension around in your lower back, as well as your neck.
Mentally reminding yourself to sit up straight can only work for so long. You need a seat cushion that does the hard work for you, and our Memory Foam Lumbar Support Pillow more than delivers. As soon as you slide it into position, you'll feel yourself naturally shift into a posture position that's better for your joints, your muscles and even your eyesight!
Easy Care and Cleaning
We want you to use your orthopedic seat cushion, not store it away out of fear of getting it dirty or losing it! That's why we made sure to create a cover that works as hard as you do.
All of the mesh, non-slip cushion covers that you'll find in our shop are removable and wash up beautifully. If you begin to notice any soiling or staining, you can simply remove the cover, pop it in the washing machine, and enjoy it all over again. You'll also appreciate that this cover is hypoallergenic, so you don't have to think twice about getting too close to it.
Of course, if something ever does happen to your cushion, we'll extend our valuable Lifetime Replacement Guarantee so you never have to be without it!
Different Kinds of Cushions to Know
Back pain tends to isolate and linger in certain spots more than others. This is the reason why your lumbar region might be in a constant strain, but your upper back feels fine, and versa.
Understanding this, we filled the Health and Wellness section of our shop with different kinds of cushions. Each one meets orthopedic standards for bone and muscle support. The exact one you need will depend on where your pain tends to isolate the most.

Memory Foam Coccyx Seats
Your coccyx is another name for your tailbone. It's also one of the hardest-working bones in your body, taking the brunt of the impact as you sit for hours on end.
Have you ever felt a dull ache in this region after riding a bike for a short period of time? If so, you experienced a heightened and condensed version of coccyx discomfort! Usually, the pain is a little duller but is constant and can be incredibly frustrating.
An orthopedic seat cushion can help! If you're looking for one, start with our Memory Foam Coccyx Seat Cushion for Office Chair. Made from the exact same memory foam you'll find in the rest of our products, this cushion features a unique, U-shaped design that allows you to rest your body weight on it for an extended period of time.
One of the best parts? This design is not only orthopedic in nature, but it's also ergonomic.
The study of ergonomics revolves around upfitting and adjusting tools and equipment to make someone's workplace as natural, efficient and comfortable as possible.
This logic flies in the face of standard office furniture that's neither attractive nor plush. These pieces might get the work done, but using them can impact your health and even makes it more difficult to focus.

This cushion also features a removable cover and is covered with our Lifetime Replacement Guarantee. Tend to get hot as you sit? Consider our Gel Infused Memory Foam Coccyx Seat Cushion instead!
This cushion includes all of the features described above, with the addition of one special touch: cooling beads! We also designed it with strategically-placed cooling holes throughout to help maximize breathability and keep you comfortable.
Seat and Back Cushion Sets
Sometimes, your pain isn't exactly isolated to your coccyx or your lumbar region. Rather, you may simply feel a little stressed and in need of support.
This is where our Memory Foam Seat Cushion and Back Cushion comes in.
If you already love your coccyx seat, then the back cushion adds another layer of comfort and support. The same applies if you already have the back cushion! A few of the spine-related conditions that sets like these can offer include pain in your:
