3 Best Recliners for Recovering After Surgery
La-Z-Boy Southeast | April 22, 2021
Are you looking for the best recliners for recovering after surgery?
At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, our recliners have helped thousands of people recover from recent procedures.
In this article, we’ll take a look at three of the best types of recliners to help you comfortably recover from your upcoming surgery.
1) La-Z-Boy Lift Recliners
Recovering from surgery with a La-Z-Boy Lift Recliner makes the process of getting in and out of a reclined position much easier.
Simply press a button on your remote to sit down, stand up, or fully recline to a zero-gravity position.
Relaxing in your lift recliner at a zero-gravity position will relieve pressure on your lower back and spine.
Plus, having your feet above heart level will jumpstart your circulation to help your body recover faster.
2) La-Z-Boy Power Recliners
La-Z-Boy Recliners are available with your choice of a manual or power reclining mechanism.
Power recliners enable you to adjust your back and legrest with the touch of a button.
And they’re able to elevate your feet above heart level to naturally reduce stress and inflammation.
These are major benefits if you’re trying to take it easy and let your body heal.
La-Z-Boy Power Reclining Options:
- Buttons on Side
- Attached Hand Wand
- La-Z-Boy Wireless Remote
If you prefer a manual recliner, upgrading to an extended handle will give you plenty of extra leverage while you recover.
Be sure to keep in mind your handle can be installed on the left or right side of your recliner.
3) La-Z-Boy Heat & Massage Recliners
Upgrading your La-Z-Boy Recliner with heat and massage will make your recovery a lot more comfortable.
This option is available on most Lift, Power, and Manual Recliners at La-Z-Boy for an additional charge.
La-Z-Boy Heat & Massage Package:
- 3-Setting Heat in Back and Seat (high/low/off)
- 6-Motor Vibrating Massagers (4 in back with 2 in seat)
- Adjustable Massage Speeds (high/med/low)
Applying heat and massage at the push of a button is a must-have for people who will be spending a lot of time in their recliner.
Be sure to check with your doctor to know when it’s okay to begin applying heat and massage during your recovery.
How to Pick a Recliner That Fits Your Body
Picking out a recliner is a lot like getting fitted for a shoe – except we look at your entire body instead of just your feet.
Your recliner should be a place you can recover from your recent surgery comfortably.
However, if you pick the wrong size of recliner you could experience neck, back, and leg pain.

Place Your Order Months Ahead of Surgery
Making sure your recliner is ready for you when you get home is very important.
If your La-Z-Boy Recliner is being customized with options like heat and massage, it could take a few extra weeks to be built.
Keep this in mind when shopping for your recliner and scheduling your operation.
