Re: Recovery from L4/S1 PLIF
The raised seat does help. The whole situation of trying to get your behind down low is really hard when your muscles are so traumatized. I am still using mine, anything to assist is a good thing. I do not have a recliner, so I can not answer that question, but I can sit up in most chairs but I do not like to rest my back against the chair without a soft very soft pillow in between.
hope this helps!
