Not all lumbar rolls are created equal.
Why this matters:
If your sciatica pain is caused by a herniated disc: hurts more with forward bending and leaning AWAY from pain; and better with extension or leaning TOWARDS the pain, then you most likely heard about lumbar rolls. They were designed to help maintain the natural curve of the low back when sitting. I think it’s a great tool. However, the ones you find on the internet are designed to fit “most”, but what that often means is that the rolls are too big for most people. Did you waste your money? No. If it helps you with sitting, then you can continue to use it.
But what if it doesn’t fit you properly? What if it doesn’t feel the greatest, but you need some support? You can absolutely make your own!
This video shows you exactly how to create your own custom lumbar roll that you can take anywhere, and it’s free!
