In the classic TV show “Seinfeld”, George is acting like a cool guy. He brings a vintage American muscle car to impress a woman, and all is going well until she sees the front seat.

“Is that your orthopedic back pillow?”

“Maybe.”

“Well is it or isn’t it”

“…guess not.”

That’s what we could call economical writing. Humor aside, many of us can empathize with George Costanza. You can have the coolest car in the world, but if it doesn’t offer your back the proper support, driving it will bring you an unwarranted amount of pain.

Getting a properly fitting orthopedic pillow is a great way to make a vehicle truly your own. Think of it as customizing your car precisely to your own body. Having the proper lumbar support can reduce your stress levels, ease strain on your back, neck and head, make you more alert and aware, and make driving a more pleasant experience.

To help you, we scoured Amazon.com and found the most well reviewed lumbar pillows. We looked in multiple categories to ensure that no area of the site would go overlooked (Automotive, Home & Kitchen, Office Products, and Health & Personal Care).

Duro-Med Relax-a-Bac with Insert and Strap, Gray

  • Number of reviews: 1,276
  • Overall rating: 4 out of 5
  • Category: Health & Personal Care

With 1,276 reviews and a 4 out of 5 five stars average rating, the Duro-Med appears an excellent choice. Weighing just under two pounds means that you don’t have to worry about lugging anything into your vehicle. Within the foam cushion is a wooden core to help it retain shape over time.

HoMedics OT-LUM Therapy Lumbar Cushion Support Pillow with Velour Cover

  • Number of reviews: 295
  • Overall rating: 4 out of 5
  • Category: Home & Kitchen

Quantity of reviews isn’t necessarily the determining factor, as a lot of people have wonderful things to say about the HoMedics. Boasting thermo-sensitivity and the ability to respond to body heat, the OT-LUM offers a high degree of customization.

Fellowes Professional Series Back Support, Black

  • Number of reviews: 291
  • Overall rating: 4 out of 5
  • Category: Office Products

The Fellowes offers an unusual design to support both lumbar and mid-spine areas. The lumbar section actually has three memory foam partitions to uniquely shape itself to the person’s back. The included straps ensure that the support won’t move around on you either, remaining firmly in place.

Lumbar Cushion by King of Canes

  • Number of reviews: 229
  • Overall rating: 4 out of 5
  • Category: Automotive

At a hefty three pounds and wide base of support, this pillow was made with the bigger is better mentality. With a super thick base and available rear strap, this non-descript darkly colored support can be easily transferred to whatever vehicle you have for the day.

That’s it! There are plenty of more options within each category, so use the links at the top of the article to do additional research. As with any enterprise, it might take you more than one try to find a product that works for you. We at Jaguar Land Rover Cary hope, however, that you remain positive and find relief for your back. Good luck.
