For an inexpensive padding option, fabrics like, cotton and foam based rocking chairs are viable options but its tough to get them clean since herein a padding is usually covered with fabric itself, therefore its maintenance is an object of constant concern for the consumers. These days we get to see more of plastic rockers chairs and traditional wooden rocking chairs being used by kids and adults but this is without padding and it's a convenient, inexpensive and maintenance-free option when compared to padded rocking chair. But with all these materials, there is one problem: they don't give their consumer that added comfort to relieve back and spine pain on the whole.
Most of our bodies' aches and pains come from stress and anxiety, and rocking is the best source of relaxation for your stressed and tense body. Studies have revealed that chronic diseases like arthritis can be minimized by rocking, as it helps reduce the pain and inflammation. The motion of the chair has a harmonic movement to your bones that keeps joints working and limber. If you have a recent awful back pain or even if you have been suffering for a prolonged time, a rocking chair can give you great support. It reduces the stress on the back by taking the pressure off your spine.
Rocking chairs are a common item we associate with mothers, gently rocking their babies to sleep. We also associate them with the elderly, leisurely enjoying the early morning or the sunset on their porch. Most rocking chairs are made with fine woods, and last for centuries. Rocking chairs are common family heirlooms. Rocking chairs have become very common. They come in a variety of styles and designs. Some of them are painted and others have only the natural wood finish. You will find them for young children, backyard lawn furniture, elegant front porch features, and still used in nurseries for quiet times with your baby.
Gliders and children's rockers are non-conventional designs for rocking chairs. Gliders lose the traditional curved wood rocker, and instead replaces it with smooth hinges that move back and forth. The same design is adapted for children's rockers that are usually found in cribs. While gliders are more expensive than the traditional rocking chair, this design is more favoured in environments and rooms where the characteristic noise of a rocking chair is not favoured. Gliders that are found in children's rooms and nurseries and even libraries are most favourable because they produce very little noise.
The original inventor of the rocking chair is still unknown. Though some stories attribute its invention to Benjamin Franklin, no historical evidence can prove them right. Historians can only trace the rocking chair's origins to North America during the early 18th century. They were originally used in gardens and were just ordinary chairs with two rockers at their bottoms. It was in 1725 that early rocking chairs first appeared in England. They were also used as garden chairs and had hoop-shaped backs. The distinction of being the creator of the first popular rocking chair design actually belonged to England's North American colonies. Windsor rockers, as this design was called, were first built near the Windsor Castle in the early 1700s. These rocking chairs featured a round hoop back, a birdcage (with spindles known for its cage-like appearance), and a comb-back (with comb-shaped head rest). The wicker rocking chair was another popular design created during that time. The production of wicker rocking chairs reached its peak in America during the middle of the 18th century. These wicker rockers, as they were popularly known, were famous for their craftsmanship and creative designs.
