Recommend a Chair for back pain?

I've suffered from back pain for years stemming from my time working in warehouses. 15+ years of moving heavy materials have taken its toll and at 40, I have early stages of arthritis and possibly Facet syndrome. I'm wondering if anyone with the same issue has had any success with any office/computer chairs to help alleviate the pain.

Unless you see it with your own eyes or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth.

Is this lower back pain?

I spent many years weight training and did quite a lot of damage to my lower back personally. I have a plain Steelcase office chair and while it doesn't look ergonomic it is very much so. I couldn't imagine going back to another chair again after experiencing a nice Steelcase.

This is lower back pain. There's no disk damage or broken vertebrae or anything, but the doc says the back pain caused me to compensate with my posture which threw my lower back and hips out of alignment, which in turn cause the muscles to compensate, which in turn caused lots of inflammation in my lower back. It's a nice pile of problems that I have to slowly work through, and a good chair would help a lot since I've transitioned to a desk job.

Your explanation could have equally come from me. I am all too familiar with the vicious cycle lower back pain causes.

The chair I have is the Steelcase Criterion Office Chair. These are a bit expensive new but are quite affordable second hand. Cannot recommend this brand enough. Link - https://www.steelcase.com/products/o...irs/criterion/



If you ever become interested in physical therapy to rebuild the muscles and fix the problem for good I will add in my recommendation for dead lift and weighted squat training under the care of a professional. In my case lifting weight caused my problem and later on lifting weight solved it.

Dude, I’ve been a loader since I was 25 years old and I’m familiar with terrible back pain. I had never experienced such pain before and it is simply unbearable. I was with more than three doctors and none of them could help me. Massage, sleep, chiropractor, strong painkillers, I tried everything but nothing helped me. As a result, a friend of mine advised me to try the kratom plant. At that moment I did not know what it was and decided to refuse, but it later saved me from terrible pain. I learned more about TGM kratom capsules and decided to try it and the effect was just awesome. My whole body was relaxed and I did not feel back pain at all. It was the perfect solution to all my problems. Thank you for listening to my story.

I would second the deadlift / squat for rehab. When performed properly can help rehab the lower back... and get you swole

I buy berlman ergonomic for my dad, I like it and my father feels comfortable when sitting in that chair and working and I can see he really love it. I choose this chair for my dad because the chair is designed with suitable lumbar to support for customer’s waist and against spinal disease, it really useful and my dad dont worry about back pain. The armrests contain thick padding and a variety of adjustment knobs.
