If you work from home, you likely spend a lot of time at your desk. And all of that sitting can really do a lot on your lower back. In fact, if you are not careful, it can cause a lot of pain throughout your body, including your shoulders and neck. (Trust me I know). But that’s why the Aurora Health back cushion is such a practical item for your workplace.

The Aurora Health back cushion is an attachable lumbar support that you can use to relieve tension in the lower back. But this isn’t just any pillow that you just put on the back of your chair when you need a boost. This pillow is also a massager that heats up on command, which is perfect for increasing blood flow and soothing aching muscles (it just feels amazing, too). The device also has four different speed settings and eight massage nodes to really give your lower back a spa-like treatment.
Fortunately, most ergonomic chairs have some sort of lumbar support (aka anything that helps keep your spine aligned and maintain your posture). But without this type of support, you can stop putting unnecessary pressure on your back muscles and discs, according to UCLA Health.
Any time you feel uncomfortable while sitting or have poor posture, consider this a warning sign. This can ultimately lead to possible neck pain and problems with your spine. One way to prevent this from happening is to monitor your seating position. Make sure your “upper arms are parallel to your spine,” according to UCLA Health, on your desktop. Also, be careful not to sag as this can put strain on your spine.
Although each person gets different results, one reviewer noted how the Aurora Health Back Pillow helped provide sufficient relief for their partner’s back pain: “I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband and he loves it so much!” They write. “He uses it on his bad back every night and it really helps loosen up his muscles.”
This is an effective solution for everyone who wants to make the desk job a little more comfortable or the WFH workplace a little more relaxed.
