Back Support For Office Chairs That Will Reduce Pain & Discomfort
Back support for office chairs can relieve a great amount of tension and stress endured by taking the pressure off the lower back and transferring it into the specially designed supporting cast. Many office chairs come equipped with a set in position lumbar support or adjustable lumbar support. But in the case your office chair doesn’t come equipped with lower back support where your back arch needs support, then getting an attachable lumbar cushion/support is crucial to maintaining proper posture.
Lower to mid back pain is one of the most if not the most frequent complaint among office workers. I think it’s impossible to maintain the ideal posture for 8 hours a day in an office chair without adequate back support.
To fill the void you will need an attachable lumbar support cushion/padding/support to your existing office chair. The correct lumbar support cushion for an office chair should not be too soft nor should you think bigger is better when it comes to the size. While soft and large is ideal support for sofas, it’s not the ideal support needed for an office chair. The extra thickness is not always needed in this case.
Below you can find a few of our favorite back supporting devices. We try to cover everyone’s budget by providing lumbar supports in many price ranges.

Obus Forme High-back Backrest
A great back support for long drives in the car, but I think it’s even better for supporting your back and neck while in the office chair.

Mid Range Back Support
Kensington 82025 Memory Foam Backrest
For the price of this cushioned support, I found it quite good. It’s made from memory foam like they use in NASA to reduce G Force strain, but in this instance, it’s intended to relieve back pain. Does it very well too I might add.
Strap the Kensington memory foam support to your chair. Then sit back and let your body heat warm up the support. The memory foam then begins to mold around the shape of your body providing extensive cushioning and support for your back.
Especially good support for smaller people and when sitting on hard flat chairs.

Better suited to cloth or fabric chairs as the straps can slide down the frame.
