Assisting the relief of lower back pain, the most common type of acute back pain
Most people will suffer from lower back pain at some point in their lives. There is not usually a specific problem or disease which causes this pain which can vary from mild to severe. In some cases acute lower back pain is caused by sciatica, where the sciatic nerve is irritated or pressed upon. Sciatica manifests itself by pain, numbness or weakness felt in one buttock, leg or foot. Slipped discs are also responsible for a proportion of lower back pain sufferers.
The Exemplar Sacrum has been designed by physiotherapy and ergonomics specialists to hold your body in the correct posture whilst sitting, yet still giving you scope to move. The adjustable lumbar and sacrum support cradles the lower back in the lumbar region to relieve pressure in this area. Additional adjustability of the seat tilt further encourages a healthy posture as well as significantly redistributing pressure. For sufferers of lower back pain, being held in the correct position whilst sitting can greatly reduce and in some circumstances eliminate pain.
