I’ve dealt with back pain for 24 years and learned a lot in the process of visiting many different chiropractors and physical therapists. I’ve taken what I learned and designed an office chair that gently decompresses and stretches the spine using gravity. The chair also allows you to strengthen your lower back muscles by performing low back extension exercises directly on the chair without the need to buy a separate roman chair. These exercises are typically recommended by physical therapists for people with lumbar disc issues. Physical therapists also often recommend the McKenzie method, Sphinx pose in Yoga, or the sloppy pushup, all of which you can do on the chair but with even more flexibility than without the chair. When lowering the roller table with the electric switch and laying on your stomach, this position uses gravity to pull your legs down the roller table which helps gently decompress the spine to relieve pressure. The best part is that this is likely the only chair that allows you do do all of this while getting work done at the same time!
