Product Description

Size: 1-ct

Over the years, The Original McKenzie Lumbar Rolls have literally helped hundreds of thousands achieve freedom from common low back pain. An adjustable elastic strap lets users secure the roll to standard chair backs and auto seats. Proven quality! An independent laboratory compared the high quality McKenzie Lumbar Rolls, by OPTP, with competitive products and found "...the OPTP Lumbar Roll is more supportive, will not lose its supportive qualities as quickly, and will offer more consistent support longer than the other rolls sampled." An independent laboratory confirmed the superiority of The Original McKenzie Lumbar Roll in a blind random analysis with test rolls from our largest competitors. While the foam used in a competitor's lumbar roll suffered immediate and continued structural breakdown, OPTP's roll suffered no structural breakdown and remained consistent through the test period. The lab's conclusion: "...the OPTP lumbar roll is more supportive, will not lose its supportive qualities as quickly, and will offer more consistent support longer than the other rolls sampled..."

I have been having lower back pain due to extended sitting during the day and my physical therapist recommended getting a lumbar roll in addition to doing my stretches and exercises. I wasn't sure which one to get, but this one fit the size dimensions she had recommended. When I first started using the Mckenzie Lumbar Roll I found myself fighting with it because it was extremely firm. I also found it difficult to use on the metro because of the train jerks around so much. However, my physical therapist checked it out and said it was a really good lumbar roll and since then I have found it to be very helpful for my back. I used on a plane trip to and from Chicago and during a week long conference and didn't experience my usual aches. As long as you are willing to work through the initial difficulties of getting used to it, I think this is a very worthwhile product to complement stretches and exercises for lower back pain.

The Lumbar roll is a good product however I ordered a firm one and it is way too hard. It's difficult to adjust the roll to your lumbar area because it's so hard.
I would not order firm but the middle density.

I use this product in a completely different way: length-wise along the spine for heavenly relief. Place the roll on the floor or a firm mattress and align your spine along the roll. Better than a professional massage. I take a 15 minute rest twice a day and hate to get up ! Your shoulder blades fall to each side in a perfect alignment. Try it, you'll like it. I am searching for 16-18" which would be even more effective.

I have used the McKenzie Lumbar Rolls for many years, and they have been lifesavers for me. I use them at home, at the office, going out to eat, and especially for air travel. Without lumbar support, I get into back trouble, and this is the best lumbar support I have found.

However, the product has changed. The traditional roll is the one pictured at the top of the product page in which the belt is attached through reinforced slits in the roll's cover. These traditional rolls last for a very long time, and the cover and belt outlast the firmness of the foam. The new rolls are made out of different material, and the belts are sewn into the seam at each end of the zipper. These seams rip out in a few months, well before the foam has begun to soften, and the belt becomes useless. I'll try to add a photo above to show what I mean.

I hope that the designers and manufacturers will notice this problem and come up with a remedy. As I said, I depend on these rolls. Since I am forced sometimes to carry them in public, they have to look good and not ratty.

By the way, I have found one workaround. I slip my torn roll into a small, light nylon briefcase just wide enough for the roll, and I leave it zipped in there. I carry the briefcase to a meeting or a dinner, and I just slip the briefcase behind my back, and then I have the support I need, and no one sees the torn roll--or any roll at all.

(By the way Amazon, this is not a toy.)

At my doctor's suggestion, I purchased the McKenzie book and the McKenzie Lumbar Roll - Firm Density. I used a rolled up towel until the McKenzie Roll arrived. I tried my one hour commute to work with and without the McKenzie Roll. Conclusion: The McKenzie Roll is dramatically effective for me; I would even say amazing. A rolled up towel of the same size is too firm, particularly in my vehicle seat. After experimenting, I now do not strap the roll to the seatback; it is easier to just position the roll after sitting in the seat as instructed. It is important to "roll" the roll into the correct spot on your back; too high or too low greatly reduces the effectiveness. It does take some getting used to, but it is well worth the effort. I now find I forget it is there after ten minutes or so. I started to cut off the strap, but then I found it is handy for attaching the roll to the outside of my computer bag to take on the airplane. I also tried the D-shaped roll, but I like the round one better; it is easier to roll into just the right position. I think the McKenzie exercises are also important. They are easy and don't take much time; however, I think they must be performed exactly as instructed in the book to be effective.

If you have lumbar or cervical issues, one the these rolls is an absolute must. Not only do they help curb acute pain, but also help to get your back into the correct postural curve when used correctly. You should also buy 7 Days to a Pain Free Back and Neck. The Therapy Connect has the BEST prices on these rolls anywhere.
If you suffer from neck or back pain, consult your doctor first, BUT get McKenzie's book and a roll. They will change your life to one pain free.
As a massage therapist who has suffered from low back pain for over 40 years, Mckenzie has developed the best method I have encountered for dealing with acute and chronic pain. DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY THESE!!!

I've got a bad back and the lumbar roll I keep in my car recently, well, rolled out without my knowing. I tried several different more expensive products to replace it, and then went to a local Joanna's Bed and Back store. One of these was twice as expensive there, so I ordered several from The Therapy Connection at HPMS, Inc.

First off, I got them BEFORE Amazon's earliest estimate as to when I'd get it -- so it was amazingly fast and accurate service (I'd definitely buy from them again).
Secondly, I put one on my writing chair last night and I could finally sit in it again! These things are wonderful and just what I need to be able to sit upright for hours. (The chair is a Lazy Boy, and this is the first one of these I've had on it with a strap long enough to go around. It's a very adjustable strap and I'm sure it'll work with the various chairs I need it to work with.)

Now I just have to decide whether the standard or firm works best for me in which chair.
