The lumbar roll promotes a natural posture in the low back while in a seated position, by supporting the lumbar spine and preventing a slouched posture. This roll has a firmer density than the Standard Density Original McKenzie Roll, allowing for increased support to the lumbar spine in sitting. Particularly beneficial for those who develop pain in the low back or lower extremities while seated, and for those requiring a more rigid maintenance of lordosis while seated.
This is the Original McKenzie Lumbar Roll, featuring a non-wrinkle, moisture wicking, 100% polyester removable cover. This roll may be used in the car, at the office, or for use with any seat that does not provide adequate lumbar support. The built in strap secures the lumbar roll to most back chairs and can even be used around the waist. The strap does contain latex.
This roll measures approximately 11" L X 4" diameter.
Made in the USA.
Generally you would want to use the firm lumbar roll if you are super sensitive to flexion (someone who really needs to avoid flexion with/bending forward/maintain a curve in lower back). You would also use the firm if you are of larger stature. Some also just find it more comfortable to use then the standard or super roll.
In your case, based on the fact your pain is not constant or severe it sounds like the standard roll or super roll would be the best fit.
