Prevent back pain at work through active sitting

Prevent back pain at work through active sitting.

“Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work,” according to the American Chiropractic Association. Employees with back pain are absent 4 more days per year than workers without back pain.” Low-back pain symptoms can be due to various causes, including injury, strain, or a medical problem like a ruptured disc(s). And, if you’re in pain, you can’t work well—your production is slowed, your mental clarity is diminished, and your output is decreased.

Movement chairs can improve your health

Sitting for any lengthy period of time, even if the position is ergonomically accurate, can cause back pain. Experts say that you shouldn’t sit still for more than 30 minutes at any time.

Back pain can be prevented, however, with attention to proper techniques for sitting, working, and exercising. Why not combine all three into one? With the Varier Move, you can sit, work and exercise simultaneously. “The simple, wide-based wobble board allows a large range of fidgeting movement. It is the perfect complement to my desk, and I realized after a few weeks that my old chair didn’t really make sense,” said an office worker after giving Move a try.

Movement chairs stimulate your entire body by opening up your lower back, hip flexors, and gluteus muscles. Benefits for your employer include healthier, more productive employees and an overall positive impact on a company’s earnings.

Varier’s Anders Stampe puts it this way: “People are changing their sitting habits at work. They care for their bodies as much as their minds.”
