Enjoy positional relief from back ache and arthritic pain

Arthritic pain and back ache

A riser recliner can offer temporary positional relief from:

  • Arthritic pain
  • Back ache
  • Aching joints

Good posture is essential in avoiding the distressing pain or discomfort caused by back problems or arthritis, so our riser recliners can ensure you are correctly supported along all points of your body. By adjusting the movable back and leg rest, you will be able to find just the right sitting or reclining position for you, allowing you to temporarily enjoy some blissful relief from the misery of back ache, aching joints and arthritic pain.

And did you know that you put most strain on your back and knees when you get OUT of your chair? Because our chairs will raise you to an almost standing position, you can avoid uneccessary load on your back and knees, reducing the risk of any further pain or discomfort.

Experience the benefits of massage

The advantages of our built-in massage system are vast. We highly recommend adding it to your recliner as it can provide many benefits, as well as being the ultimate in luxury and relaxation!

Please note: using a riser recliner with or without massage is not a cure for any medical conditions or chronic illness such as arthritis or back pain and you should not discontinue any current medication. If you have any concerns then contact your health care professional. Our massage system is not recommended for use with a pacemaker.
