If You Have Back Pain, You Need This Comfy Seat Cushion with Over 6,000 Rave Reviews
It's a game-changer.
Despite even the best efforts to stay active throughout the day, it's easy to end up spending a majority of your time sitting down, whether it's in a chair at your desk, driving in a car, or lounging on the couch after work. Studies confirm that all of this sitting can contribute to uncomfortable lower back pain. So how do you ease aches and pains when your daily life requires you to stay seated for hours on end?
If you work at a computer all day, you could look into a standing desk, but even The New York Times argues that the tool isn't a cure-all for sedentary habits. This also isn't helpful if you're looking for back pain relief outside of the office. Instead, you might consider turning to a simple seat cushion like Amazon's number one best-seller, the Everlasting Comfort Memory Foam Seat Cushion.
Designed for back, hip, sciatica, coccyx, and tailbone pain, the memory foam pillow works to improve posture for those who sit for long periods of time. Its U-shaped ergonomic design was specially made to mold to the shape of your body while maintaining the support you need, and it's ideal for office chairs, car and airplane seats, recliners, wheelchairs, and even the couch. With a non-slip rubber bottom, it will stay put wherever you need it. Plus, the cover unzips so you can easily clean it in the washing machine.

Not only is the cushion recommended by orthopedic doctors, but it's also backed by 5,533 five-star Amazon reviews. One reviewer perfectly summed it up, writing, "It's a BUTT-SAVER." Additionally, travelers pointed out how well it works for long-haul flights, office workers happily reported using it at their desks, and even truck drivers noted its comfy benefits.
"I won't take another flight without this!" one shopper shared.
"It's extremely comfortable and in fact my colleagues are quite jealous of me," wrote one user who took the cushion with them to work.
"I would get thigh, tailbone, butt and lower back pain from the seat in my semi...not any more," another explained. "This has made driving for 11+ hours heaven! I would go to the end of the world to say how much this has changed my days!" they continued. (Related: These Abs Exercises Are the Secret to Preventing Lower-Back Pain)
