70 -85% of people have back pain at some time in their life. Back pain can result from numerous activities such as sports injuries, auto accidents, sitting or standing for prolonged periods, stress, pregnancy or extra body weight. Stress that is placed on the back muscles around the spine can tighten leading to pain in the back.
Recliners can help with back pain because they take the weight off your back. Reclining, or lying down, rests the spine. Whereas in an upright seated position our muscles are still contracting.
Elevating your legs while reclining helps support your back. It will also help with other medical conditions such as varicose veins because reclining aids blood flow back to your heart which is good for inflammation.
Depending on the nature of your back pain, massage recliners may help or hinder your back pain recovery. Massage recliners can help with muscle tightness or spasms, especially when heated. However, if you have back injuries then you should first consult a qualified doctor of chiropractic.
