This is the most common type of back pain. The majority of cases of sudden-onset (acute) low back pain are classed as nonspecific. This is the type of back pain that most people will have at some point in their lives. It is called nonspecific because it is usually not clear what is actually causing the pain. In other words, there is no specific problem or disease that can be identified as the cause of the pain. The severity of the pain can vary from mild to severe. This type of back pain is discussed further below.

A muscle relaxant such as diazepam is occasionally prescribed for a few days if the back muscles become very tense and make the pain worse. Diazepam is one of a group of medicines called benzodiazepines which can be habit-forming and should be taken for as short a period of time as possible.

This study of changes in spinal characteristics (in Swiss adults) since the late 19th century found… well, basically nothing. Spines are pretty much the same now as they were then. At least in Switzerland.
Blood tests are not routinely used to diagnose the cause of back pain; however in some cases they may be ordered to look for indications of inflammation, infection, and/or the presence of arthritis. Potential tests include complete blood count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and C-reactive protein. Blood tests may also detect HLA-B27, a genetic marker in the blood that is more common in people with ankylosing spondylitis or reactive arthritis (a form of arthritis that occurs following infection in another part of the body, usually the genitourinary tract).
Like other supports, the Lumbar Cushion is constructed with foam to provide your back with comfortable support. The firm cushion keeps your spine aligned properly to prevent strain and pain the lower back.

Sitting has been shown to have a higher low back compressive load than standing  and deviation from the neutral posture has been linked with increased static muscular effort [3,4]. While past efforts have been made at designing back rest/seat pan combinations that promote a neutral spine , lumbar support pillows often do not account for the pelvis and may push the body forward on the seat pan . While several investigators have studied the effect of various lumbar support pillows on asymptomatic individuals [15-17], the current study investigated the effect of a lumbar support pad that accounted for the posterior pelvic bulk on the posture and comfort of healthy individuals and patients with LBP.
Conventional health care practitioners are quick to prescribe medications like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), acetaminophen, and even opioids for chronic pain. But even if these medications can provide immediate back pain relief, their effect is only temporary – the pain will come back sooner or later and in some cases will cause hyperalgesia, or increased sensitivity to pain!

Size and weight: choose a cushion that suits the dimensions of your back. Shorter people would require thicker cushions in general while heavier people should go with firmer designs that are less likely to compress over time.
One of the best tactics to help treat back pain is to see a qualified chiropractor. I am an avid supporter of the chiropractic philosophy, which puts great emphasis on your body’s innate healing wisdom and does not rely on “Band-Aids” like drugs and surgery.
What sets it apart is the all mesh support included with the cushion that can be used separately or alongside the cushion for additional support. This makes the product highly versatile and adaptable to a wider variety of chairs and seats. It gives you the option of added the mesh support on top of the cushion for deep seated chairs to provide additional support should you need it. The mesh support also prevents direct contact with the cushion keeping the contact area of the back sweat free thanks to the breathable nature of the material. Moreover, you have the added option of just using the mesh support for chairs that have good padding but poor contours.

There’s increasing evidence that back pain and other types of pain may be exacerbated by psychological or emotional issues. It is my experience that emotional health and your ability to effectively address your stress is an essential component for optimal health, and can have a major influence on whether or not you’re effectively eliminating your pain.
I bought this to use in a postal truck for lower lumbar support. I decided to go with this product versus cheaper ones available to get good quality. I haven’t used the cheaper options before so can’t compare it to those but this product is great quality and seems built to last after 2 months of use. It provides great lower back support and I’ve noticed a reduction in lower back pain since I’ve started using it.
