Chair Users with Lumbar Issues

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.
