Back Chair Care

The right chair can help relieve your back pain

We spend eight hours a day at work – for many of us that includes sitting in an office chair. As you may already know, sitting for extended periods of time can lead to severe back pain – which is not only unpleasant, but could lead to or exacerbate a serious medical condition that can impede your quality of life. The answer to your problems might be as simple as buying the right chair and getting the right advice on the ergonomic set-up.

Looking after your back at work

 To understand how a workstation should be set up, you first need to understand your body, and how to maintain a comfortable working posture with naturally aligned joints. This will reduce muscle strain and, therefore, work-related pain. Keep an eye on the following points:

01 Your hands, wrists and forearms should be straight and roughly parallel to the floor.
02 Your head should be mostly level and looking straight ahead.
03 Your shoulders should be relaxed, letting your upper arms hang naturally to the sides of your body.
04 Your elbows should stay close to the body at an angle of between 90 and 120 degrees.
05 Your feet should rest comfortably on the floor – or, if needed, a footrest.
06 Your back should be fully supported, with a lumbar support to ensure you stay in the right position.
07 Your seat should be well-padded protecting your hips and thighs, keeping the latter parallel to the floor, and in-line with your knees. Your feet should rest comfortably on the floor – or, if needed, a footrest.
08 Your feet should extend slightly in front of your knees (not tucked under your seat).
09 You should move around and take regular breaks throughout the day and stay hydrated.

“I have found Martin and the team very easy to deal with.  Martin listened and understood my concerns.  What I thought was purely chair related turned out to be a whole office revamp with standing desk and I so thrilled.  Martin assisted in looking at the way I work and the lack of space I had to move my chair whilst at my desk.  At no time did I feel pressured to purchase and I am overjoyed with the result and am using my standing desk!  Sincere thanks.”
