Q: 

Can you tell me what the name of the pillow Michelle used for her sciatica pain? She said it had balls of air that leveled out when you sit on it.

I'm asking for my 37 year old daughter who has the exact same symptoms as Michelle with her sacroiliac pain. Went through same tests etc., found nothing. After many therapists, shots etc. she found a chiropractor that is helping to get her in alignment. Needs help in the car as hip pain and burning in legs are very painful.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am sorry to hear about your daughter but glad to hear she is getting some relief from the chiropractor.

Did you read about Michelle in a specific article? You may want to post your question to Michelle on that article. I was not able to find it.

Regards,
Maryann

Thanks Maryann for getting back to me. Yes, I saw an interview Michelle had on Fox News Health on 3-12-12 about "Ease pain from sciatica by breaking bad habits" and also under "solutions for sciatica." The pillow was mentioned & suggested checking websites for seat cushions. Hard to tell which one it is. You can imagine we're desperate for anything that will ease the pain. She is highly in demand right now as she is an educator in Political Science & does a lot of TV spots, lectures etc. especially the next few days with the election. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks again. Sharron

Hi Sharron,

Here is a SHARE: Change Your Habits to Ease Sciatica by Michelle King Robson.
http://www.empowher.com/community/share/change-your-habits-ease-sciatica

Here is information about the pillow.
" One of the things I found that really helps is a seat cushion called the Airhawk Pro. It’s made up little balls of air, so it makes you sit level and cushions your buttocks. I keep it on my desk chair and it really helps. http://www.therohostore.com/Products/AIRHAWK-Pro-Standard-Truck-Seat-Cushion-System__AHTRUCKSTD.aspx"

Here is the link to the site offering this pillow: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/airhawk-pillion-seat-pad

Airhawk Pillion Seat Pad
PRICE
----------------
$169.95 - $189.95

I truly hope your daughter gets some relief with this product.

Regards,
Maryann
