Why do office chairs cause back pain?
Office chairs are one of the most common causes of back pain. This is because they’re often not ergonomically designed, and they don’t provide the support that your back needs. Plus, they often have a hard, flat seat, which can cause your pelvis to tilt forward.
This puts pressure on your lower back and can lead to pain and discomfort. Office chairs also frequently have poorly designed armrests, which can cause your shoulders to round and your head to jut forward. This can lead to neck pain and headaches.
In addition, these chairs often don’t provide adequate lumbar support, which can cause you to slouch. Slouching puts additional strain on your back muscles and ligaments and can lead to pain.
To avoid these problems, it’s important to choose an office chair that’s ergonomically designed and provides adequate lumbar support.
What is lumbar support in a chair?
Office workers often suffer from back pain, due to the fact that they sit in a chair for long periods of time. Lumbar support is a feature of some chairs that helps to alleviate this problem. The lumbar support is usually a small, cushioned pillow that’s placed in the small of the back.
This pillow provides extra support for the lower back, which can help to relieve pain and improve posture. In addition, lumbar support can help to prevent future back problems by promoting proper alignment of the spine.
For these reasons, lumbar support is an important feature to look for in an office chair—especially if you’re prone to back pain.
