Back Support Chair.
For Back Pain Management and ReliefToo often, I have seen a back support chair which does not help people with their back pain.
This is simply due to the fact that when you are working at your desk it is next to impossible to sit back into your supporting chair while working! I am frequently asked "which back support chair is the best?" by my physiotherapy clients.
The answer is very difficult, as it depends on a number of factors:
Overall, I generally avoid expensive back support chairs. In most cases this is due to my belief that we should all learn and maintain an active posture. This is where you teach and train your own muscles to hold in a good sitting posture.
Too often, I have seen people spend lots of hard-earned cash on a back support chair which does not help them with their back pain. This is often simply due to the fact that when you are working at your desk it is next to impossible to sit back into your back supporting chair while working!
More often you are sitting forwards to engage with someone or something, your computer for example. In this situation, which I consider very common, an expensive chair will not be the solution to your back pain.
The solution is for you to learn how to sit correctly using your own bodys muscles. Pilates will help you do this, as would the Alexander technique. A one-on-one session with a physiotherapist would also put you on the right road.
A back support chair that I recommend and sell daily is called the "back friend". It is an affordable fold-up seat that you can place on top of your existing seat.
It can be used in the office, car and sofa at home. It is a good support device, which when combined with good active sitting will help you greatly in the resolution of your back pain.
However - if you are still interested in purchasing - you can see examples of the lumbar support office chair here.
Or - have a look at the cheaper option - The Lumbar Support Roll here.
