I have been having lower back pain due to extended sitting during the day and my physical therapist recommended getting a lumbar roll in addition to doing my stretches and exercises. I wasn't sure which one to get, but this one fit the size dimensions she had recommended. When I first started using the Mckenzie Lumbar Roll I found myself fighting with it because it was extremely firm. I also found it difficult to use on the metro because of the train jerks around so much. However, my physical therapist checked it out and said it was a really good lumbar roll and since then I have found it to be very helpful for my back. I used on a plane trip to and from Chicago and during a week long conference and didn't experience my usual aches. As long as you are willing to work through the initial difficulties of getting used to it, I think this is a very worthwhile product to complement stretches and exercises for lower back pain.
