McKenzie Lumbar Roll:
This simple lumbar cushion works wonders. It was invented by Robin McKenzie, a famous physical therapist who wrote several
ground breaking books on spinal rehabilitation. I give his exercises to my patients everyday and his pillow is the number
one pillow I recommend - especially for the work chairs. The roll is placed in the middle of the low back - where the
low back arch is the greatest. I know it looks different from the average lumbar pillow, but it gives the support where
you need it most. If you force the lumbar spine into it's normal forward arch, the rest of the spine automatically conforms
to a better, upright posture. (Remember all purchasese from this store are 100% satisfaction guaranteed!)
Standard Lumbar Back Cushion:
This is the lumbar cushion most people are more familar with. This is a top-of-the-line version of it. It is great
for larger people, larger chairs and long car rides. Most people are more comforable with this type of cushion in their
car. But like everything else - it is all personal preference. It has a strap so it can be secured at the exact spot
on the chair that you need it, and it won't fly out of the car or off of the seat when you get up.
This simple cervical roll is the best pillow to sleep with. We only need support under our necks - that is where
the normal neck curve is. If we sleep on our backs, the last place we need a piilow is under our heads - pushing our head
up. We are all bending our heads forward too much during the day as it is. Most of us end up with necks that jut too far forward,
and that sets up the cascade of forward slumping posture as people age. A neck roll can be used as 8 hours of neck
rehabilitation while you sleep!
Treat Your Own Neck - Book by McKenzie:
Simple, easy to read book - loaded with photos of the, "do's and don'ts of neck posture." This
book is written just for patients to help them understand why they developed their neck problem and how to
help correct it. It explains why the neck pain will radiate symptoms down into the arm as it progresses. It is
a great book to quickly browse through for information on ergonomics and exercise for the healing, rehabilitation,
and the prevention of neck problems. I loan this book to my patients all the time - especially to
patients with disc problems and arm symptoms. The McKenzie techniques discussed in this book have prevented countless
patients from dangerous neck surgery. The author is the guru of physical therapy and rehabilitation. If neck
and/or radiating arm symptoms are damaging the quality of life for you or someone you love - I highly recommend
Treat Your Own Back - Book by McKenzie:
Another great book authored for patients by the guru of spinal rehabilitation! Simple, easy to read book - loaded with
photos of the "do's and don'ts" for the back. Learn about how your back problem may have developed
and how to help correct it. It explains why back pain will radiate symptoms down into the hip, buttock and
leg as it progresses. It is a great book to quickly browse through for information on ergonomics and exercise. The
McKenzie stretches and techniques discussed in this book have prevented countless patients from high-risk, back surgery.
I use these exact techniques everyday on most of my back pain and sciatica patients. It is a good review for patients and
great home care for people that are trying to manage their back conditions on their own. 80% of the population
will suffer from back pain because all we do all day is bend forward. The McKenzie techniques focus on low back extension
to help correct a life of repetitive forward flexion. I can't recommend this book enough!
