SITTING ON THE SACRO WEDGY®
Lower back problems, sciatica and leg pain often start after taking a long trip or sitting for extended periods. That is why truck drivers, computer operators, traveling sales people and couch potatoes have benefited greatly from sitting on the Sacro Wedgy®. Years ago many seats had a small hump in the middle. Farm tractor seats or older secretarial furniture are examples. What this hump was doing was filling in the gap under the coccyx (tailbone) and about 40 years ago the design changed to the bucket seat. After sitting for a while, gravity takes over, slumping starts and the spinal column pushes the sacrum down causing the hips to spread and pain begins. You will recieve most of your correction and relief from lying down on the Sacro Wedgy® with a neck support, but we like to recommend sitting on the Sacro Wedgy® for preventive maintence.
What the Sacro Wedgy® does is simply fill in the gap and stops the drop. We sit on it on the plane, car, computer, couch, meetings, movie - your life style determines when it's best to use. The posture is what changes because you can't slump, shoulders stay up and open, you don't get as tired and stay more alert. Many of our testimonials are about being able to travel with less or no pain when sitting on the Sacro Wedgy®.
