Some people experience pain and discomfort when they sit in a recliner. The reason for this is the way you’re sitting, and whether or not your muscles are properly aligned.
It may be possible that you need to adjust the height of your footrest, so it’s supporting your legs more directly. Having the wrong height on your footrest can force you into an awkward position and put additional strain on your muscles.
If that doesn’t work, you might want to try a recliner chair with a flexible back. This type of chair allows you to sit up without forcing your spine into one fixed position. When the chair moves as you move, it keeps stress off your body by changing as you change position.
There are also other things that can be done such as using a pillow or cushion behind the small of your back to support your lower back while sitting in a recliner. Also having too many pillows or cushions under your legs tends to force them apart causing more weight to go onto the bony parts of our hips which can cause pain after time.
