Am I the only one who struggles with Sciatica and Back Pain?

For a very long time, I did not know what that shooting pain was that I continued to feel going down my left leg. I was absolutely clueless!!

I didn't know anything about sciatica or chronic back pain and certainly didn't feel like I could have these symptoms at such a young age. However, being in my thirties with a history or cheerleading injuries, retail jobs in college, athletic wear and tear, fluctuating weight gain, genetics, and a host of other contributors, I begin to understand more about why my back was hurting me so badly and why my sciatic nerve pain was rearing its ugly head. I begin to look for non-surgical solutions and I found one in the ComfiLife Coccyx Cushion for Sciatica & Back Pain.

According to the Mayo Clinic:
Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body.

Sciatica most commonly occurs when a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis) compresses part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain and often some numbness in the affected leg.

Although the pain associated with sciatica can be severe, most cases resolve with non-operative treatments in a few weeks. People who have severe sciatica that's associated with significant leg weakness or bowel or bladder changes might be candidates for surgery.

This cushion is really made well and I can see it lasting for many years to come. The cover is thick and soft and fits snugly around the cushion insert. It comes in this really nice grey color that is super universal and is gender neutral. It could fit in any decor in your office or your car without looking like an odd ball.

Additionally, I love that it has a zipper so you can take the cover off and clean it without having to wash the entire unit. I don't know about you, but I hate putting whole pillow in the washing machine because I never know if it is going to come out like its original version.

Lastly, there is this rubber-type gripping on the bottom of the pillow that helps the cushion stay in place. It fits nice and snug in most regular-sized office chairs and also fits well in the seat in my truck. The grippy bottom makes sure it never slips off the seat.

The price for this product couldn't be a better deal or steal!! Other competing back pain cushions run about $40-$50 but I got this one for a price in the high 20's. It also comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and full warranty. The product was shipped and received quicker than I thought and I have had my own product specialist corresponding with me via email to ensure that I was happy with my purchase and didn't have any questions. Talk about awesome customer service!!  You can check out this cushion, as well as some of their other product offerings here.

These also make the perfect gift. Perhaps there's someone in your life that doesn't know that they need it or someone who keeps putting off the purchase of buying one for themselves. Either way, this would come as a pleasant surprise and with a sea of gratitude, I'm sure. It's one of those things that people don't know they need until they have it. Then they wonder how they ever lived without it. LOL

Lastly, there is this cute "Cool Gel" version that I am hoping to try out soon.
