Back and neck pain is becoming a worrying issue for our increasingly office-based work environment. These chairs are already tackling the worst part of an office job – the lack of proper, supportive chairs. This is where the pain comes from, poorly designed back rests and lack of headrests to support your neck.
These chairs change that. We have some expensive and affordable options, as well as different designs. But what is common is these chairs is the importance of your physical health. Prioritize yourself by acquiring one of these proven designs. Your back will silently thank you quickly enough.
I used to suffer from pain in my back, neck and shoulders, from sitting at my desk retouching photographs on my computer. I even considered giving up my job and doing something that didn’t need me to sit at a desk for long periods.
However, while talking to a friend of mine about my pain, they suggested I try the Herman Miller Aeron chair. They had one and loved it. I was sceptical a new chair could solve my neck pain, but decided to give it a go. I bought one and it made a difference pretty much from the start. Once adjusted, the chair supports me in all the right places. It took a few days, but I now don’t have any neck or back pain at all.

It comes with breathable mesh, which is good as it helps restrict moisture from building up due to body heat.
In our office, sometimes the heat of the market can require long-hours, short breaks and slumping necks. I’m no expert but I bought a couple of these ‘Ergo task’ chairs for my team and I can tell they’ve done well. There hasn’t been any neck pain around our office. They also come in different colours and they’re not too hefty of a price.
When it comes to office chairs for neck and back pain, I’ve tried them all, I have purchased 3 ergonomic style chairs with a 30 day money back guarantee and returned them all. I have invested over $7000 dollars all told.
Here is the solution I found worked for me. I realize this will be different for each individual depending on the type of physical issue you have.
I firmly believe that for me, ANY sitting posture that I am fixed in for a period of time is the issue. Tiring out whatever muscles / ligament are involved in that one fixed position.
The solution I found was an inexpensive Swiss ball based chair that keeps me constantly changing and adjusting my position.

I bought a refurbished Humanscale Freedom, after struggling to find a chair which worked for me for years. Being over 6′ and often spending 8+ hours a day sat in the chair in my office, getting something with comfortable armrests, good lumbar support and a comfortable headrest has been a literal pain. I’ve owned the Freedom now for almost three years, and wouldn’t swap it for anything.
