Try one of the physiotherapy shops. They shld sell such stuff.

Alternatively, the closest you can get is the pharmacies, etc, like NTUC, Guardian

believe it that some cars have this built into their cars ?

while other makes have those dials that can arch the sitting position in the car.

same principal IMHO...

as Radx mentioned, they do sell it at the local pharmacies.

try putting cushion on the seat (bum) area when driving. that should help stressing the lower back muscles.

many cars hv this lumbar support feature but many of them are not well designed i.e inadequate ergonomic support.

getting old, body start to show signs..

 

any good recommendation for lumbar and neck/shoulder support?

 

I'm using seahorse memory pillow for now, not the best but for that price, can't complain much.

This is my 4th pillow from them.

 

as for lumbar support,

I spend like 3 hrs on road daily..

for now, only using those soft pillow, place at the lumbar.

 

based on Radx recommendation, anyone tried backjoy?

 

my right shoulder is killing me.

I have also developed shoulder twitching, nearly a year.

 

Went to see doctors, only given painkillers

went to see TCM, massages helps but only a short period.

I use backjoy in the office.

 

It stops me slouching in my seat

 

and helps me sit up straight.

 

It also helps tighten the stomach

 

so I guess it helps with better posture.

 

Buy online its half price at around $35.

 

:D

The other thing that might help is

 

memory foam cushions. If I have to take

 

a long flight I always use that and never

 

get bum pain or discomfort from sitting too

 

long. I like memory foam so much I have

 

it as insoles in my shoes and as a topper

 

on the bed.

I never use pillows so I am not sure but I really like the topper.

 

Its a very thin topper only like 2 inch but I get a bit of the sunken

 

in feeling. I also think different brands got different quality and

 

very different prices. Try the Tempur in shopping centres, very

 

ex but to me very nice.

 

I think they should use memory foam as padding in car seats.

 

The best thing for back ache is exercise. My 70+ year old mother

 

I took her for long walks and she said she had the best sleep, increase

 

her appetite, lost weight and all her aches and pain were gone.

 

:D

Yes, most cars lumbar support not that great.

And such pillow may help to provide a better posture - less pain.

 

Good to do stretching too regularly.

 

Btw: Perhaps good to consult your Dr again. May need to do simple X ray of cervical spine or referred to ortho surgeon for MRI. 

Generally, for persistent symptoms not better with medication/TCM, may be prudent to exclude degenerative /wear and tear of your cervical spine bone  or/and possiblity of nerve impingement.

 

 

Take care bro!

Sorry to ask, what is a topper?

 

you use that for sleeping?

 

actually I don't have backache but I got shoulder ache..

any remedy?

 

I admit, I put on some weight after marriage.

I tried to cut carbo and buffets, yet still makes me overweight.

Exercise, also rare ever since I had a torn ACL.

 

Definitely not healthy.

 

Saw Qoo10 selling backjoy for $38 with delivery, order 1 already [:p]

thank you.

 

Well, long story cut short.

 

I had a back injury during my NS time and for the rest of my life, our dear ARMY is paying for my medication bills.

I have degenerative, slightly slipped disc but this has been fine and well accepted by my body.

I had a torn ACL on my right knee during 2 years back during a soccer game, and was told to go for op which I declined.

 

I don't take painkiller unless necessary.

 

I believe in living with the pain and find ways to overcome it.

so far, everything is fine.

 

The only pain comes from the right shoulder and occasionally, neck..

A topper is a thin mattress you put on top of your mattress.

 

If you find your mattress too hard you can put a soft topper.

 

If you find your mattress to thin or soft you can put a firmer topper.

 

Shoulder could be you pulled a muscle or your posture is bad.

 

Most likely sitting posture. You can try shoulder exercises or

 

if its my I would go for thai massage where they bend your body

 

like a pretzel. Some people find it painful I just love it.

 

Just don't make the mistake I did of choosing a thin petite girl

 

and thinking she has no strength. I came out feeling like I was

 

in washer dryer. lucky not Samsung one.

I see,

 

not sure if I really need a topper as my bed, is those orthopaedic tyre ( it should be good, I suppose)

 

Every morning when I wake up, I will do stretching of neck and shoulder.

Otherwise, they will spoil my day.

 

I don't think I pull the muscle, as it had been like this for a year.

More on the sitting posture, the pillow and driving too long.

I like to hold my steering with 1 right arm only..

 

every fortnightly, I will go TCM for massage.

2 hrs worth, with cupping and gua sa.

everytime, my shoulder, neck and right arm will show great shade of purple-rish.

was told, its not good.  

the root cause of my pain

 

yes, my washing machine is from Samsung..

high tech but only know how to use 1 feature.

after 3 years, my wife still don't know how to operate it.

We wish it will explode soon, so we can claim on Samsung
