    Lumbar Support

    Does anyone know of any good lumbar supports for like computer chairs or cars. I have been having a hard time with some chairs since my revision.

    I love the inflatable pillows sold by comforthouse.com. You can adjust the pillow to just the right pressure you need - usually just two or three puffs of air. Traditional lumbar-support pillows are too firm and big for me, but the inflatable works great. I still use one in the car and whenever I have to sit in a folding metal chair.

    Hi Janet, I have problems with chairs also. For my chair at work and at home I use pillows, the small airline size works, as long as it hits the small of my back I feel the support. It's been about 1 1/2 yrs. since my surgery, so I guessing I'll always need these pillows. Do you have problems in the car also?
