Best Ergonomic Office Chairs for Back Pain

Being challenged mentally, working through complex problems, dealing with a difficult customer or struggling with too little time – just another day at the office. But one of the biggest problems we often forget about is the physical challenges a work day can have on our bodies.

 

Spending extensive hours behind a desk on a daily basis can wreak havoc on our muscles and joints, with our back and shoulders usually being the main victims. A study conducted by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 32% of all worker injuries are due to muscle strain and carpal tunnel syndrome. With more and more hours spent behind desks in modern day jobs, this figure is expected to climb over the next few years.

The main issue is that our bodies weren’t made to sit, especially not for extensive periods at a time. We further worsen the negative effects of sitting by doing so with a bad posture, hunching over behind our computers. But what are you to do when your type of job requires you to spend most of your time sitting behind a desk?

Luckily, chair manufacturers around the world continually work on creating the best office chairs that will provide support to your back, neck and posture. Today, there are various office chair options available in the market that will ensure a healthier, more comfortable seating experience.
