I have a lot of joint issues and sometimes lying flat in bed is extremely uncomfortable. I have back pain, my shoulder still bothers me and my hips are always killing me for some reason. Can you relate? I’m dead tired at night, but sometimes the pain wins over sleep and this is never good. I received a bodyCushion to review to test out how it provides support for pain management.
I love to get massages to help manage the pain but that isn’t often enough to make a difference and it’s so difficult to find time for one. So when I got the email to test out the bodyCushion, I was intrigued.
According to research, your body is not designed to lie flat and as a result of doing so, one often feels pain and discomfort in a supine (flat) position. The bodyCushion allows for proper alignment of your neck, spine, and hips. What really interested me though was “the main goal of the bodyCushion is to relieve stress and relax your body”.
How can the bodyCushion™ help with back pain?
The bodyCushion is a high-tech, high-quality body positioning system that allows a person to lie face-down, face-up, or on their side without unnecessary pressure on soft tissue areas. Research has shown proven that back muscles actually tighten up when lying face-down on a flat surface. This allows your body to relax and takes the pressure of your spine and pelvis and distributes your body weight so that you can relax.
It’s mainly used in chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy settings but they are looking to brand out to the regular consumer (like us!) to realize the benefits of the bodyCushion. I can see how this would have been a wonderful thing to have when I was pregnant as it provides body support to all the areas that are prone to injury and discomfort.
My sales rep told to me lie on it for just 15 minutes per day to enjoy the benefits and he wasn’t wrong! It is extremely comfortable and it absolutely took the pressure off my sore joints. I wish I could stay on it longer and I tried to convince my kids to massage my back, but they weren’t having any part of it! In fact, they wanted to lie down on it so I could give THEM a massage!
The longer you are on it, the more relaxed you become. It is a great for the end of the day when you really need to decompress your mind and body. I could feel my body just sinking into the bodyCushion and it was definitely more comfortable than lying flat.
Things I really like about the bodyCushion:
- The covers are replaceable
- The foam is guaranteed to last a lifetime
- It’s easy to move room to room
- They have a 90-day, better-than-money-back guarantee! They even pay the return shipping if you don’t love it.
- It is VERY comfortable and relaxing. Just spending 10-15 minutes a day to give your body that rest time made a difference for me with my back pain and shoulder pain.
- I liked how I could move the components around to adjust for different positions.
