Better posture can come from more flexibility in your hips. The wobble cushion encourages the user to engage in their back and core muscles. The cushion can be used on a chair or on the floor. Continue reading to learn more about wobble cushions to help with hip flexibility and aid lower back pain.
What Are Wobble Cushions?
Wobble cushions are small round inflatable cushions, strong enough to both stand and sit on. These cushions are unstable and therefore engage your lower back or core. Wobble cushions promote core stability, strengthens muscle tone, improves balance, and body posture.
Watch the video I made for a quick explanation and keep reading below to learn more about the topic.
How Inflated Should Wobble Cushions Be?
Inflate the cushion so that it maintains bounce without rippling at the sides, about 3.75″ at the highest point (center) of the cushion. When inflating, insert the pump carefully as to not pierce through to the other side of the cushion. If its too deflated, you or your child will touch the bottom of the cushion when they sit down.
Benefits of The Wobble Cushion
The wobble cushion creates multiple different benefits. Such as reducing stress, due to at-home learning children are sitting for must of the day. This causes stress in the lower back. The use of the wobble cushion can help enhance blood flow and oxygenation through spinal discs, relieving stress and strain.
If you’ve previously encountered a spinal injury and a read for rehabilitation, consider this tool. The more flexibility in the spine the less likely it will occur. A wobble cushion helps rehydrate lumbar discs and circulate spinal fluid. Discs have no direct blood supply, so movement is required to pump in healthy fluids.
