If you're one of the 25% of Americans dealing with lower back pain, you know how tough it can be. Back pain can range from annoying to debilitating, and it only makes sense to want to try to find relief ASAP, if not sooner.

Well, there's a popular leg elevation pillow that Amazon shoppers rave about for back pain relief — and you can save 10% off through Sunday with our exclusive coupon code, 10YAHOOWEDGE. It's called the Ebung Leg Elevation Pillow and, with our special code, it's just $39.50.

Why consider a leg elevation pillow? Elevating your legs can help with back pain and hip pain coming from your back, Dr. Mara Vucich, a physiatrist with The Maryland Spine Center at Mercy Medical Center, tells Yahoo Life.

"If you elevate the legs so that your hips and knees are slightly bent, it helps keep the spine in a more neutral position with less pressure through the spine," she explains. "That's an ideal position." This position, Vucich says, can help you get relief from back pain by putting your spine in its normal alignment.

While Vucich says that many people with back pain can benefit from this, it's not for everyone. "If you put yourself in that position and it's increasing your pain, stop doing it," she says. (A good way to test this before investing in a leg pillow is to prop your legs up with a regular pillow and see how it feels.)

Back to the Ebung Leg Elevation Pillow... . This wedge-style pillow is specially designed to gently elevate your legs and provide you with relief from a range of issues, including back pain and leg swelling. It's made of sturdy memory foam and won't collapse under your body weight.

It even comes with a breathable and washable hypoallergenic pillow cover to help you keep it clean.

To use it, simply place the pillow under your legs and relax, keeping your back in a neutral position. That's it!

More than 12,500 Amazon shoppers swear the Ebung Leg Elevation Pillow helps with their leg, hip and back pain. "Oh my goodness! I had hip replacement two weeks ago and have been stacking odd sized pillows to try to get elevation, with little relief. The moment I used this pillow I felt the deep relief in my knees, hips and lower back," said a five-star fan. "My only regret is having waited so long to get this."

A fellow happy customer called this pillow "the solution to my back pain." They explained, "I have spinal stenosis and suffered from searing pain in my hip and down my thigh that interfered with sleep and had me waking up every morning in great pain. Even though I fall asleep lying on my side, I seem to roll over onto my back while sleeping, and I noticed that that's when the pain starts. I learned in yoga that elevating the legs was the healthiest position in which to rest, so I selected this leg elevation pillow based on its dimensions and the soft cover and memory foam on top of firm foam. It has been the solution to my pain. From the first night I used it, I have had no pain and can now sleep through the night and wake up pain-free. I wouldn't think of going to bed without it!"

Again, this coupon code is only good through Sunday. Don't miss your chance to grab a top-rated leg pillow at a discount while you still can!
