Regular Office Chairs vs Standing Desks vs Chairs for Active Sitting | Case Study

The human body was not designed for sitting long hours; therefore, regular chairs can cause spinal deformations that will result in unbearable back pain and a severe case of neck pain due to the unhealthy positioning of the head.

Actually, due to the statistics, 68% of North Americans are dealing with chronic back pain. While sitting on a chair with the fixed seat, an unhealthy and stiff sitting posture is the worst thing. Muscles and intervertebral ligaments do not work as designed and for this reason, pressure is applied to intervertebral discs while sitting.

Maybe you did try to stand whole day instead, but there are other known risks of standing, so you should be very careful not to cause yourself more problems than you had before!

What is the Canadian Center for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) saying about popular standup desks? Working in a standing position on a regular basis for long hours can lead not only to fatigue and lower back pain, but can also cause other health problems such as sore feet, swollen legs, varicose veins and stiffness in the neck and shoulders.
 In the longer term, this type of sustained muscle fatigue can lead to more serious joint problems and back pain, they note in a report of a study published in Human Factors, the journal of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.
So what are the options?
The best-known solution recommended by chiropractors is ACTIVE SITTING on SpinaliS chair with a movable seat on a spring and fully adjustable backrest and armrest.
Chiropractors-recommend SpinaliS chairs for active sitting
Active sitting: Very popular method of sitting in Europe, that reduces the negative effects of a sedentary job, including back pain as well as the pain of the complete musculoskeletal system. What does it mean? During the classic sitting posture, which most of us are used to, we sit “comfortably” and we do not change this position for a long time. The foundation of active sitting is active changes of your posture.
Our body needs to be active. The goal is to involve as many as possible postural muscles. They all are designed to support and keep our spine in a natural position. And if you lean back you are relaxing.” Says Dr. Michael Banman, Owner of Aligned Chiropractic, Kelowna BC.
