Chair Users with Lumbar Issues
This entry was posted on September 26, 2008.
This is my painful area when sitting down. Doesn't flare up all the time, but sometimes. So I have to be real careful as to what chairs I choose. I normally need an adjustable lumbar support, that pushes into my lumbar region, into the concave of my lower back.
What do I do to prevent recurring back pain? I get up and stretch a little bit more than normal. People may think I'm strange, but I'd rather be strange than hurting. Also, I have a keyboard tray and monitor arm, as well as the aforementioned chair with adjustable active lumbar support. (It is actually mesh back, but that is really a personal preference.) For me, the deal breaker is lumbar support. If you have upper back issues, that's a different story. For some chairs that I have tried out and do recommend, check out our back pain page...Tried and true.
FYI, I have not tried the inflatable lumbar supports, such as in the MAY9414AG, however, we have had clients that do love it. (We are getting a sample in this week, so I will be trying it soon.) Check out our editors review on it next week.
Rock on, sit right.
