What Is the Lumbar?

The lumbar spine is the portion of the spinal column that extends into the lower abdomen in human beings. It consists of five vertebrae from L1 to L5. It's the lowest part of your spine, located right above your tailbone. From the side, the spine naturally forms an S curve. However, when seated, this curve alters. For a more comfortable and stress-free sitting experience, your upper and middle back will lean back against the chair's back, which helps keep your head and neck in a neutral position. Your lower lumbar spine will therefore extend forward, creating a gap between your back and the seat. This should be where the lumbar support is.

It is utilized to fill the space between the chair’s backrest and your spine, providing maximum support for the S-shaped natural spine.
