Product Description

Product Description

The Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll was designed by world-renowned physiotherapist Robin McKenzie as part of the McKenzie Lumbar Roll range. When used correctly, this versatile back support cushion can prevent and help to alleviate neck and back pain caused by poor posture. Made to the highest quality and specification, this authentic lumbar roll is recommended for use on soft furnishings such as sofas and lounge chairs. It is also ideal for use in the home, office or car for people who require lots of support, such as those with a heavier build or those with a large hollow in their lower back.

The Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll back support cushion promotes normal alignment of the lower back when sitting. The human spine naturally forms an S shape, with the spine curving forwards at the lower back, outwards at the middle back and forwards again at the neck. When we sit we have a tendency to slump, meaning the lumbar spine drops backwards, reversing its natural curve. In this slumped position the muscles at the bottom of the back are stretched, often leading to back and neck pain. The Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll can help to prevent and relieve this discomfort by promoting correct posture and the natural 'S' shape of the spine.

The Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll has a flat back and so can sit comfortably against a chair. The roll is positioned at just above waistband level when sitting, to stimulate you to maintain a better sitting posture. The roll is D-Shaped so the flat back side sits flush to the chair and the curved side mimics the contour of the lumbar spine. Held in place by an elastic strap, the roll is easy and quick to fit to most chairs, so you can move it without difficulty from office to car to dining chair as often as you need.

I have suffered on an off with a bad back since a rugby accident 20 years ago.

Just recently I manage dot slip 5 discs in my back causing me very acute sciatica and numbness in both legs and feet which was not great.

I was in hospital and had a course of physiotherapy and am on the road to a good recovery.

I am involved in Sales for my job which involves a lot of sitting at desks and long car journey which the consultant does not recommend at all.

My Physio recommend the D roll to me as a support aid and I was a bit more than sceptical as I am 6'5" tall and weight approx 18stone therefore did not believe a small little foam filled Pillow could do me much good.

How wrong was I .......?

This device fits right into the small of your back and helps form the correct lumber shape making your shoulders also pull backwards into a very comfortable position.

I travel on a regular basis from Hastings to Newcastle and before getting this pillow at the end of a journey would be extremely stiff and uncomfortable.
With this great device I can virtually jump out of the car!

My only negative point on this product (and it is a very small negative) is that the Strap is not that effective in holding the pillow in place as it doesn't fit well in cars that have raised lumber sides (like sports seats) therefore I never use the strap and can adjust the position to where I need it

If you sit for a long time or suffer from a bad back I would recommend this product to you 100% (please seek medical advice if required!)

For £14 you can't go wrong

Having been a 'sloucher' all my life and suffering from neck and lower back problems I thought I'd give this a go. I'm happy to report it does its job brilliantly. I spent 18 hours on a coach trip (which normally causes me agony) and arrived at my destination painfree. I was overjoyed. In fact, slouching now causes me pain and I make it a habit to sit with correct posture at all times. It's been a revelation.

At the same time, I also invested in 'Treat Your Own Neck' by Robin A. McKenzie which has saved me so much money at the chiropractors. I really can't recommend both items highly enough.

'Put my back out' whilst cleaning my teeth (yes really). After time off work, lots of drugs from the doc (painkillers and muscle relaxers) made up my mind that I did not want this to happen again.
Saw a lot of good reviews on the book 'Treat your own Back' so I got a second hand copy off of e-bay. Part of the book recommends the use of lumbar rolls so I looked at what was on offer. For whatever reason, I ended up buying this 'D' roll from Home4physio. Can't recommend it enough - it is just the right firmness and can be used at home, work or in the car (I have done all of these). It has an elasticated strap but I find that I don't really need it as it sort of finds the right place in your back anyway. Don't know how good the other products on the market are because I haven't tried them - don't need too, this is the one for me !
By the way, the book is good as well, especially in pain releif and understanding a bit about your back.

I bought one of these as I do a lot of miles in my car which doesn't have an adjustable lumbar support in the seat. I wanted something which would help stop the twinges in my lower back after a long journey. The roll does seem to work, but it is quite large and, until you get used to it, it does feel as though your pelvis is being thrust forward. My only real gripe is with the fastening belt - the buckle is one of those that the belt goes through in an s-shape and however much I fiddled round with it the belt just slipped back out, so it is esentially useless. That said it pretty much stays in place anyway being wedged between your back and the seat.

I bought one of these McKenzie rolls as they seemed to have excellent reviews on all sites I visited. In reality though I can't see how they score so well with others.
I used an Obusforme lumbar roll for many years and decided to replace it because I felt it had started to lose its shape slightly. How I wish I had stuck to Obus. This McKenzie roll has lost support properties after only a few weeks which is very disappointing. Also the strap doesn't hold together properly and keeps pinging off. The Obus was supportive for years and has a far superior popper fastening.
I see the price has been reduced by the seller by about 50% since I bought a few weeks ago...I'm not surprised as it just isn't worth the money. Spend a few more pounds and go for the Obusforme roll...I wish I had....far superior in every way.

I am a terrible sloucher and bought this on the basis of other reviews saying it helps them with their upper back and neck pains.

I have been using it for a couple of weeks in my desk chair, and I am happy to say it does help although it does not solve the problem completely. I also found after about three days of use the support became "squishier" so it is not as supportive as it was. It is also quite large, and perhaps over-accentuates the curve of my back (I am a size 10 5'8" woman). However, this does mean I am now able to rest against the back of my chair without my upper back slumping which was the main reason for buying.

Over all, for the price, I am happy with the additional comfort felt when using it. I also use it in conjunction with the Betterware Magnetic Back support from time to time, and together I find them very helpful
