With over 2.5 million people suffering from back pain in the UK, it’s no wonder why we’re often asked: can a mobility chair help back pain? The simple answer is yes. No matter how long you’ve suffered from back pain, a well fitted mobility chair could help provide temporary positional relief to help you sit in comfort once more. Read on to discover how.
How a Mobility Chair Can Help Back Pain
Did you know that a long day of sitting in an unsupported chair can actually worsen your back pain? While a mobility chair cannot cure back pain, it can certainly help alleviate the daily discomfort it causes. Here’s 5 reasons why:
With a mobility chair you have full control of how you sit. Whether you want to sit with your feet raised, body leaned back, or more, a mobility chair has the flexibility to find the best seating position for you. This is all achieved at the simple touch of a button on the handset connected to the chair.
Mobility chairs are specifically made to your measurements and comfort preferences. This allows you to sit comfortably and enjoy some temporary relief from the discomfort of backache, aching joints and arthritic pain. With the addition of an inbuilt massage system, your comfort can be enhanced even further.
Research has consistently shown that massage can really benefit sufferers of back pain. Take advantage of our optional built-in massage system and you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing massage, controlled with an easy-to-use handset, all from the comfort of your recliner.
- Enjoy either a full sensual body massage or a concentrated massage on one of five specific areas of your body
- Choose from wave or pulse settings to help those stubborn aches and pains, or to simply help you relax
- Control the intensity of the massage with the easy to use remote
- As a safety feature, the system automatically switches off after fifteen minutes

3. Improved Posture
To avoid the discomfort caused by back problems, having the correct posture is essential. Our mobility chairs ensure you are correctly supported along all points of your body. This provides temporary positional relief from back ache.
4. Pressure relief
Sitting in a static position causes increased pressure in your back, shoulders and legs. Having the ability to raise your legs with a mobility chair makes it easier for blood to travel back to your upper body.
Mobility chairs relieve pressure on your back, allowing your back muscles to relax, consequently reducing back pain by giving it time to rest and heal.
5. Support where you need it
Did you know that you put the most strain on your back and knees when you get OUT of your chair?
Our mobility chairs will effortlessly raise you to an almost standing position. This means you can avoid putting unnecessary load on your back and knees, reducing the risk of any further pain or discomfort. A great help if you suffer from back pain.
