This $40 Leg Elevation Pillow Is Bringing Shoppers With Leg and Lower Body Pain 'Deep Relief'
Having leg pain is rough, whether it's from sore hips and knees, swelling from an injury (like a pulled muscle), or just from being on your feet all day. And not being able to get comfortable because the pain just won't stop is worse. Unfortunately, there isn't a quick fix for this type of pain, but there is one thing you can get that could make it a lot more bearable.
Amazon shoppers love the Ebung Leg Elevation Pillow—in fact, it has nearly 9,000 five-star ratings. The pillow is made out of a high-quality and high-density foam that both holds its shape under the weight of a user's legs and gently molds to fit their unique shape for a custom feel. It has a removable, washable cover that's hypoallergenic and breathable, so it won't irritate skin or make you sweat.
The angle of the pillow gets legs up and off the couch or bed to help reduce swelling, which helps reduce pain, too, as Christopher Neville, PT, PhD, associate professor in the department of physical therapy education at SUNY Upstate Medical University, previously told Real Simple. He said that elevating the legs (or any swollen body part) helps move your blood up and out of the affected area and back to your heart—a critical step to reduce swelling.
To buy: $40 (was $60); amazon.com.
Ebung says that its pillow can help with aches in the lower back because the elevation assists with spinal alignment; it can alleviate pain in the hips, knees, legs, ankles and feet, too. But one of the best things about this pillow is that it's currently on sale for 33 percent off.
Happy shoppers can't get enough of it. One reviewer with a painful condition that puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves said that this leg elevation pillow was the "solution to my back pain."
"I have spinal stenosis and suffered from searing pain in my hip and down to my thigh that interferes with sleep and had me waking up every morning in great pain," the shopper wrote, adding, "I learned in yoga that elevating the legs was the healthiest position in which to rest, so I selected this leg elevation pillow… It has been the solution to my pain. From the first night I used it, I have had no pain and can now sleep through the night and wake up pain-free. I wouldn't think of going to bed without it!"
Another shopper, who purchased this pillow after having hip-replacement surgery, said they were stacking regular bed pillows under their legs to try and ease their pain while recovering but that it did little to help. After buying this elevation pillow, however, the shopper wrote they "felt the deep relief in my knees, hips, and lower back." Their only regret? Waiting so long to get it. "It is such a blessed relief!"
