Back Pain From Office Chairs

The common office chair can cause problems for even the best back. The static pressure that the spine is under when sitting in an office chair for hours can be tremendous. It can make a good back sore and a bad back unbearably painful. If you have an office job, you might think that you have to just suck it up and take it. Maybe get up every hour os so and walk around to alleviate the pain. I have another solution for you. You can get one of the many specialized office chairs available. Chairs designed to reduce or eliminate spinal and leg stress completely. Here are my top choices.
