Whether you're back in the office or stuck at your dining room table, spending all day sitting down can spell discomfort for your legs, hips and back.

While ergonomic office chairs are generally recommended as the workday antidote to bad posture and backaches, they're also known to carry steep price tags. If you don't have access to or the means for an ergonomic office chair, that doesn't mean you have to be locked into a life of aches and pains.

In fact, for less than $30, you can take home this memory foam seat cushion from Amazon that's designed to relieve back, hip, tailbone and sciatica pain — and has thousands of reviews to back it up.

What people are saying

The OVEYNERSIN memory foam cushion has earned the top spot as "Amazon's Choice" for seat cushions. Collecting more than 4,100 five-star ratings, users note that the cushion has done wonders for their sitting back pain.

"I ordered this because I was having tailbone pain and needed something quickly," writes one user. "This arrived very quickly and works like a charm. It's a bonus that this is a very classy-looking cushion that could be used anywhere. Very pleased with the purchase and service."

"[It's the] best cushion on the market I've tried," reads another review. "This cushion has changed my day-to-day life by leaps and bounds. It relieves my pain. It is very comfortable. I move it between vehicles as it will fit in any seat. I am a 35 year truck driver and suffer from 'Jeeps Disease' and have not had a flare-up since having this cushion."

One thing to note before purchasing the OVEYNERSIN seat cushion is the product's height. Measuring 45.7 x 35.6 x 7.6 cm, some shoppers found that it was too tall for their chair and table dimensions; "I like this product because it is really soft and supportive," writes one user. "However, it adds height to my seat, so I have to bend my back while working, and it causes lower back pain. I may have to get both height-adjustable chair and a working station as well."

Verdict

As an affordable remedy to sitting back and hip pain, thousands of reviewers agree that the OVEYNERSIN seat cushion provides almost immediate relief. However, if your desk situation is tight on space, or you're looking for a more permanent fix, then the $25 Amazon find may not be for you.
