Trusted by experts
Internationally acclaimed physiotherapist and author Robin McKenzie has dedicated his working life to developing innovative and effective solutions to neck and back ailments. Currently used by leading physiotherapists across the globe, this D-Shape Lumbar Roll is the result of 40 years of expertise in successfully treating neck and back problems.
How does it work?
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.
Versatile and durable
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.
Firm density for outstanding support
This Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll is manufactured from high density foam, giving the product a firm density for ultimate comfort and support.
Designed with you in mind
This innovative D-shaped back support comes with an adjustable elastic strap, to enable it to be fitted to a wide variety of chairs. It also features a soft fleece cover for a luxurious feel, which can be removed for easy cleaning.
The simple, affordable solution for back and neck pain
The Original McKenzie D-Shape Lumbar Roll is ideal for anyone who spends long hours in a seated position, whether driving or sitting at a desk. It can also provide relief for people who suffer from general neck and back pain, postural difficulties, or those who experience neck and shoulder pain when working at a computer.
The Original McKenzie Roll is also available in a variety of shapes and sizes as part of the McKenzie Lumbar Roll Range.
