Wedges and Elevations for Different Conditions: High-Level Inclines

In the past two weeks, we've discussed different types of wedges and what they can be used to treat. It's a step that's helped us define our products, highlight some of their best features, and share important healing information with readers. Now we take this series one step further by talking about high-level wedges – what they can do and what conditions they're best outfitted to prevent.  

Those suffering from all-over back pains can gain ongoing relief with the steepest of wedges. Because they offer the most support and weight displacement of any style of wedge, these cushions can help relieve the most pains. Especially when a patient is suffering from aches throughout different areas in the back, like upper and lower, mid and upper, and so on. Such wedges are also great for dealing with throat and lung conditions, including surgery or treatment recovery. 

Because few sleep on high wedges (due to the angle), they're most often used to provide back alignment. This can include anything from resting sore muscles, helping bones settle in their proper place, reducing weight tension, and more. When paired with a full body support, high wedges can also be ideal for relieving all over aches. Such as reducing knee swelling or pains and gaining support in the legs. Or, simply use these full-body wedges to relax. When angled properly (for instance, with the BackMax Plus), patients can reduce the gravity's pull on their back, legs, and joints. Seeing as these generally cause the most pain, high wedges can also offer much needed relief. Whether after an especially achy day, or as a preventative measure. 

Whether you're nursing an injury or are just looking for some added comfort, a steep wedge can offer help with all of the above. Start browsing today and learn more from our product page
