Working from home has become increasingly common, and it's crucial to create a comfortable and ergonomic workspace. A lumbar support chair is an important component of an ergonomic workspace. This blog will delve into the importance of lumbar support chairs, their key features, and how chiropractic care can help alleviate lumbar-related issues.

What is Lumbar Support?

Lumbar support in chairs refers to the added support for the lower back, specifically in the lumbar region of the spine. An ergonomic office chair with lumbar support is designed to conform to the natural curve of your spine, reducing stress and strain on your lower back.

Improper seating positions can stem from inadequate lumbar support from chairs. This can lead to back pain, muscle strain, and long-term health issues such as spinal misalignments and nerve irritation. Prolonged sitting can lead to discogenic back pain. Therefore, it is ideal to invest in a lumbar support chair which is essential to maintain good posture and spinal health. 

The Importance of Lumbar Support Chairs

Post Covid, our homes have become our new office. With this wave of remote work, it's vital to create a home office setup that promotes productivity, overall health and well-being. Lumbar support chairs are critical in your home office setup as we spend so much time in a sedentary position. By providing the necessary support to your lower back, a chair with lumbar support can help prevent long-term health issues and alleviate discomfort, allowing you to work more efficiently and comfortably.

How to Choose the Right Lumbar Support Chair

When searching for the perfect lumbar support chair, it is worth considering the following features:

Adjustable lumbar support 

Ensure the chair's lumbar support is adjustable to various degrees so you can tailor it to your specific seating position and height. Make sure the adjustable lumbar support can support your lower back area adequately and prevents you from slouching in the chair too much.

Seat height and depth 

Everyone’s body varies in height, so a chair with an adjustable seat height and depth enable you to achieve a comfortable seating position. This takes the pressure off your lower back and promotes proper seating posture.


Adjustable armrests can help reduce strain and pain on your neck and shoulder muscles, which leads to better seating posture.

Chiropractic Care for Lumbar Problems

What Can Chiropractic Care Do for Back Pain?

Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive approach to treating back pain, focusing on the alignment of the spine and musculoskeletal system. Professionally trained chiropractors identify and correct spinal misalignments, which can cause discomfort, pain, and reduced mobility. Using specialised techniques such as spinal manipulation, chiropractic care restores proper spinal alignment and relieves pressure on nerves and surrounding tissues.

In addition to alleviating back pain, chiropractic care improves overall spinal health, mobility, and flexibility, leading to better posture and reduced risk of injury. For those apprehensive about medication or surgery, chiropractic care is an effective alternative that addresses both the symptoms and the root cause of the issue, promoting long-term wellness and improved quality of life.
