Is A Medical Recliner Right For Me?

People may view a medical recliner as just another piece of furniture. But, a medical recliner isn't just another seat for someone to sit in. Rather, it's a recliner designed specifically to help those with Joint, back, and muscle issues.

Back pain is one of the leading causes of doctor's visits. Although walking is an extremely healthy exercise, it also puts stress on the joints and spine causing muscles to tighten, resulting in back pain. Medical recliners can help back and joint pain as they properly align your spine, relieving pressure on your joints and muscles. Placing yourself in a reclining position helps to further relieve muscle tensions and joint pressure.

Additionally, medical recliners are strongly suggested for those who experience knee, hip or back traumas or surgeries. The pain resulting from traumas or surgeries can be severely limiting, resulting in decreased activity levels and even emotional difficulties. Suddenly, even simple daily tasks such as walking or sitting, require a whole new level of effort as they often put additional pressure on joints and muscles, causing additional pain. Laying down on a medical recliner will help you recover quickly and comfortably. 

People of all ages experience muscle pain. But, weakness in muscles can prevent people from doing simple daily tasks such as standing up or walking. Medical recliners are suggested for those with muscle conditions. Fibromyalgia, for example, is a common condition that often results in pain in the joints, tendons, and muscles. Other conditions include fatigue, inflammations, cancers, stroke, and bodily injuries, which cause pain throughout the body. A medical recliner will allow you to rest your muscles, properly align your joints, and relieve pressure points that often aggravate chronic conditions and acute sources of pain.  You may also want to consider mobile recliners, or Geri chairs, which allow you to remain seated while being wheeled, or lift chair recliners, which provide extra assistance when standing up.

If you suffer from any of these conditions or have similar symptoms, speak to your doctor to see if a medical recliner, geri chair, or lift chair is right for you. You can browse our selection of medical recliners, geri chairs, and lift chairs online and contact us if you have any questions or comments.
