Hip pain is not joke. And you’ll do anything for relief.
In fact, not only is the pain all you can think about but the long-term effects of hip pain are worse.
Consequently, if hip pain is ignored, the results could be irreversible to your lower back, hips, or spine.
But luckily, there is something you can do about it. Actually, orthopedists recommend you use an orthopedic seat cushion (e.g our Pressure Relief Seat Cushion) to relieve hip pain.
And they suggest seat cushions for two main reasons. For example, an orthopedic seat cushion can provide:
- Balanced body weight distribution to the lower half of your body
- Support to your hips and lower back that ensures proper posture
So, you begin the search for a beloved cushion. And you discover there are many seat cushions that claim to have the “best seat” in the house such as a:
- Gel enhanced cushion
- Comfort foam seat cushion
- Rubber bottom cushion
- Travel cushion
However, don’t be fooled by the false claims and fancy words that market these products. What you really need in a seat cushion is:
- High-density, rebounding memory foam that can support upto 250lbs
- Natural contouring of your thighs, bottom, and legs to disperse your weight evenly
- Relief of tailbone pressure and thus tailbone pain
- A higher and more forward sitting position for improved posture
And the Pressure Relief Seat Cushion from Cushion Lab can do all that.
But first, let’s understand exactly why othopedists recommend seat cushions like ours.
There Are Two Reasons Why Orthopedists Recommend a Seat Cushion For Hip Pain Relief
While there are multiple reasons as to why a seat cushion is recommended for your health, we will discuss the two main reasons.
Let’s start with the first reason; to decrease the compression on your hips, tailbone, and spine that sitting causes.
Ergonomically-Designed Seat Cushions Can Lower the Compression and Pressure Placed On Your Sitting Bones
Most chairs are poorly made and without ergonomical design. In other words, your chair wasn’t designed to encourage a healthy weight distribution for the health of your muscles and bones.
So, what does sitting in an unsupportive chair do exactly?
It positions your body in a way that puts all your body weight and thus a great deal of pressure onto your hips, tailbone, and spine. As a result, this can cause:
- Muscle and joint fatigue
- Pain in the affected areas
- Lower back pain
- Pressure sores
And most of all, this can cause a lower-quality of life where simple activities are painful and tiring.
However, the right seat can support your lower half by redistributing the weight of your body so it’s not placed entirely on your sit bones and tailbone.
As a result, your hip pain will dissipate and you’ll be able to get on with your life.
But there is another reason why orthopedists recommend a seat cushion to relieve hip pain.
A High-Quality Seat Cushion Improves Your Posture and Thus, Relieves Hip Pain and Lower Back Pain
You may be thinking, “what can good posture do for my hip pain?”
Well, having decent posture is key to living painfree and without issues in the:
- Lower back
And of course, the hips as well. Actually, our Pressure Relief Seat Cushion makes sitting with a great posture easy.
In fact, sitting with our seat cushion encourages healthy posture on a muscle and skeletal level. Which means after continual use, your body will naturally use this posture without you having to think about it.
Wait. Are we saying you can eventually have naturally great posture and you don't even have to try?
Yes, with our seat cushion, flawless posture can be effortless.
And trust us, you want to have excellent posture. In fact, the benefits can be numerous. For instance, healthy posture can:
- Reduced your risk of chronic pain in the spine, muscles, or joints
- Boosts your focus and energy
- Raise your happiness and confidence level
- Give you a more pleasant appearance
There Are Two More Reasons Your Office Chair Needs a Seat Cushion
We talked about the pressure of sitting on unsupportive office chairs and how it can affect the hips and sit bones.
But we didn't talk about the compression it places on our middle section. In fact, if you sit:
- Hunched forward
- With you knees higher than your thighs
Your chances of compressing your stomach is much higher. And the negative effects of squishing your stomach vary from person to person. For example, you could experience:
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
So, remember to give your middle section some breathing room. For example, sit up tall with your chest lifted and your shoulders away from your ears.
The last important health benefit of our Pressure Relief Seat Cushion is proper blood flow and circulation.
Improved Blood Circulation
You see, the average everyday office chairs and seats available can restrict the amount of blood flow into your pelvis, legs, and back.
And you don't have to be an orthopedic to understand that doesn’t sound good. As a matter of fact, a limited blood supply to these areas means they aren't getting their required oxygen levels.
And as a result, the muscles and tissue are not able to rid the body of metabolic wastes. Furthermore, it can cause discomfort and fatigue.
While the most important thing to note is the pressure and stress it puts on the heart, or the cardiovascular system, to pump blood.
