How To Go Camping With A Bad Back

Now that the weather is hot and the kids are out of school, it is time to find entertainment. Camping is a great way to bond with friends and family, but it can also lead to sore muscles and terrible back pain or other discomfort. This summer, when preparing for your adventure, think of bringing along an extra support system. Quality pillows and cushions that promote good posture and alignment can easily save you hours of suffering.

The Kabooti® Seat Cushion is your best solution for an afternoon of fishing or a late night around the fire. It has 3-in-1 support to give you the best comfort and relief when sitting for extended periods of time. The slight incline keeps your hips rolled forward and your spine in alignment; the coccyx cut out takes pressure off your tailbone; and the cutout in the center alleviates any soreness you may have. The Kabooti will transform your camping experience and keep you ready and alert for fun times.

If you’re uncomfortable sleeping in a tent after a long, hot day is your problem, then try the Contour 2 in 1 Inflatable Back Wedge. It will give you the elevation you need to go to sleep without worrying if your snoring will wake anyone up. Also, if all the hot dogs and chili you consumed earlier starts to give you heartburn, the lift of the bed wedge will help soothe it. It can also be flipped around to elevate legs, ankles, and feet after a long day of hiking if you need. The elevated cushion takes pressure off your lower back and hips so you can recover in time for the next day. The Inflatable Bed Wedge stores easily and is light, so bringing it on a camping trip is no problem.

Another great option for sleeping is the Contour Legacy Pillow. The Contour Legacy Pillow is made of ventilated foam and a breathable cover. The ventilation holes allow air to move through the product so you stay cool and comfortable all night long. The Legacy Pillow helps you restore spine and hip alignment, cushions knees, and stabilizes your legs so you recover from your daily adventures. Due to the size and shape of this leg pillow, you can sleep in any position without encumbering yourself so you can be as comfortable as possible in the great outdoors.

Of course, these products alone will not save your back. Make sure to take other precautions too; such as, drinking water consistently and wearing durable and supportive hiking boots or running shoes, depending on your activities. Drinking water will keep your muscles hydrated and the blood flowing to help avoid stiffness. Adequate shoes will cushion the shock of your steps and reduce the stress and pressure on not only your back, but your whole body. Shop smart when gathering supplies for your next camping trip and do not forget to consider bringing along extra help.
