How to Relieve Lower Back PainHealth Articles
Painful inflammation of the lower back is usually caused by acute overloading - in sports, housework, gardening, or from bending over quickly or trying to lift a heavy object. The pain is often severe enough to make standing problematic. This condition is known under various names, including lumbago and sciatica.

Adaptic Therapeutic Chairs Win Independent TestMedia Coverage
An Adaptic therapeutic tilting-seat chair takes the top spot in a test performed by physical therapy experts from FYZIOklinika, Prague, CZ. A summary of its performance against competitor Spinalis was published in the Czech News Agency e-newspaper Českénoviny.cz.
It's awesome to sit on, even sitting 10 hours a day I have no back aches at all. I'm thrilled :-) Compared to the chair I used to have, it's no contest. I think part of it is the size - my old chair was probably too big for me. But the main reason is definitely the balancing seat. I thought at first it might be annoying, but it's actually very pleasant. The chair is easy to handle, too. In short, amazing.
All the best :-)
I got this chair on recommendation from a colleague. I used to complain at the office of my sore back when I finish my work late at home, until she showed me this therapeutic chair website. The price staggered me a little at first, but it was definitely worth it! An effective investment in your health is worth the money!
As an IT expert, my work basically consists of two positions: Either crawling around on the ground plugging in cables, or sitting at the desk staring at a screen. I've always been worried about my eyesight, but instead I got rather severe back trouble this winter. Since then, I've become a gym regular, and on my physical therapist's recommendation, I also got an Adaptic chair. I feel reborn. It took a while to get used to, but now I wouldn't want anything else!
