Your Chair and Back Pain: What You Need to Know!

Your Chair and Back Pain: What You Need to Know!

The type of chair you own can either hurt or improve the health of your back.  We recommend an ergonomic chair - anything else, after hours a day of working at your desk and you will pay the price in terrible aches and pains.  You might wonder, which is the best ergonomic chair to buy? Well, here is where it gets tricky, as there is no one chair that is best for all and that fits all body shapes and sizes.  Not all chairs are comfortable for everyone.  Before buying your chair, here is what you need to know and ask, in order to determine if this chair is right for you!

Does the chair have a seat slide to adjust to your upper leg length?  Does it have a rounded front?  Does the chair seat pan swivel so you don't have to twist your lower back when you reach to the side or turn around?

At all costs, avoid chairs with a static back that adjusts and locks to only one position because it will only support you in that one position. Look for a chair that allows you to easily move and recline.  We recommend that you look for a chair with a height-adjustable lumbar back support.  Check that the chair still fits your back whether you sit upright or lean back.

You should also avoid chairs with controls that are complicated, poorly designed and inconveniently placed. Look for chairs that have controls that can easily be reached when sitting down and that are easy to use. 

Armrests are important.  Using armrests helps you to get in and out of a chair and helps to protect your knees and back from being strained. The chair armrests should be sturdy enough for your weight and not tip the chair when you push down.  At the very least, you should be able to adjust armrest height. Some chairs also let you adjust armrest angle as well.

A headrest is always useful as it helps to reduce strain on the neck and shoulders when you recline.

Chair stability: make sure it will not tip when you lean on it. It should have a 5 pedestal base with casters that glide freely over the floor surface.
