Hey guys
Quick question. I have a bulging disk and I think it irritates the muscles in my back. I don't seem to be having as much nerve pain which is good. My main problem is in the morning, specifically on the weekends when I'm not as active.
I try to keep moving as much as possible but sometimes I get tired and lay down early and the next day I pay for it.
The question I have is, can I get some kind of therepuetuc chair to sit in in the evening that won't hurt my back in the morning?

Have you ever tried any of the zero gravity chairs Mopar? They have fairly cheap ones nowadays, might be worth checking out. Some people with back problems find them helpful.

Not yet, my wife has one for the beach but she left it outside so it's wet now lol. I'd rather have a zero gravity recliner anyhow but I will try it out

If the cheap one works, it may well be worth investing in a good one. I hear Relax the Back has some good ones.

Bailey is SO right. I have 2 Relax the Back chairs that are 15 and 20 years old. They are expensive but a great investment if you can do it. Mine still look like new but I’m going to be looking into getting a new one that is motorized as I am afraid I’m looking at my fourth lumbar fusion due to severe foraminal narrowing at L1.

But another option is to get one of the inexpensive chairs sold at many hardware and big box stores and use a large blanket or chaise lounge cushions for padding. These chairs take the pressure off of the nerves and open the vertebral spaces.

I hope your bulging disc resolves on its own—-many do!! Best wishes

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

Thanks guys.
I am going to use the cheap one my wife bought and see if it makes a difference. If it does I will invest the money on a good one.
One thing I found odd was I slept on an inflatable air mattress last night at my mother in laws and woke up feeling better than usual. Not free from pain but better.
I wonder if it's my bed causing me problems?

It’s very possible that your bed is too hard. I have a pillow top mattress that is still too hard. I bought a memory foam mattress cover that I love. It’s hard for me to sleep on anything else. So before you invest in an expensive new mattress perhaps try that first?

Love my Relax the Back recliner.  See here.  Best investment I ever made in furniture because it has power recline so I press a button and a motor rocks me back into position very gently.

If you are short like me and thin, this is the best of the best chairs and yes, it is worth every penny.  I've had mine for 6 years and I sleep in it most nights.  I live in it during the day time.
