Do you think it’s important to have a proper chair to support your lumbar area?
If you don’t think it makes a difference I want to tell you why I think having an ergonomically designed chair really does make all the difference.
For example take a look at the chair in the picture above from Herman Miller. It’s one of the many types of ergonomic chairs that are available to us. There are many chairs to choose from to suite our aesthetic tastes to our budget.Your back and well your whole body really will benefit from a chair that has been constructed to provide the support that your body needs. Whether you sit a desk for 1 hour or 7 hours or more like myself the chair can make all the difference.
I came to realize when I was in my late 20s how important having an ergonomic desk chair was for me. I worked in an office and was an Assistant to the Dean at the university so I was at a computer for a good portion of the day. I was healthy and in good physical shape but I started to have problems with my shoulders and my lower back. I would constantly be getting up because my shoulders hurt and I started to consistently have lower back pain. It was starting to affect how well I could do my job as I simply couldn’t sit for more than 30 minutes without pain.
At this time people and companies were becoming more and more aware or the importance of ergonomically structured work stations. I was lucky that I had a supportive boss and that he was willing to use money from the budget to buy me a chair for my work station. When I say getting that ergonomic chair made all the difference it really did! It’s important that the chair have some different options for tilting the back, the seat etc.. to suit your body. The chair above for example has long-term seating in three sizes with a full complement of adjustments and innovative suspension; for computer work, general office work, and casual or formal meetings. A full complement of adjustments to me that’s important! As we’re all shaped differently our chairs should have some options to mold with us.
As I mentioned if you’re only at a desk for an hour at a time an ergonomic chair is important. As I found out with my home office chair which at the time was not ergonomically correct that those pains I had at work were coming back at home because you got it my home office chair did not have any options for adjustments and was of course not ergonomically correct. I think my back and overall comfort and well being is worth it!
