Agree with hobart that sitting is terrible for you and that you should move around as often as possible.

Sorry if someone has already mentioned, but exercises to strengthen your back muscles will limit/eliminate back pain. It did for me, anyway. Pull-ups on a pull-up bar was all it took and most of my back pain disappeared.

I need a new chair with lumbar support and recline ability. Im 6.5ft and 104kgs. Herman Miller chairs have decent reviews but the price is eyewatering. Can ,whoever owns one, tell me what the build quality is like and how hardy the chairs are. Most things nowdays cater to hobbits weighing in at 75-80kgs and who are 6ft short. If I spend that much then its got to be a long term chair that can handle a man mountain.

Or any other suggestions would be very welcome.

Thanks.

Edit: The Steelcase brand appear to be an alternative to Herman Miller chairs. Unfortunately I cannot find anywhere close by that stocks these chairs (so that I can try it out first) so if I do decide on one, Im going to have to go on reviews alone.

When I switched jobs and started working remotely I decided it was time to buy a decent chair. I eventually sucked it up and went with the Herman Miller Aeron and I'm glad that I did. It is an extremely comfortable chair and I spend at least 8 hours a day in it. I actually noticed a reduction (I now have none) in back aches that I had become used to in the office. They are expensive, yes, but if you can afford it and plan to spend a lot of time in front of your computer, the cost benefit is huge. Just my 2c

First of all you should do a proper checkup.

I already visited the doctor and he said to take complete bed rest lol. How can I do rest when I have too much workload on me, that's why I am looking for an alternative solution.

Then find a comfortable chair. I suggest you buy a chair which also have massage function in it.

Some chairs have built-in motors and also have massage functions.

What's your budget for a chair?

Got the Serta Big and Tall Hensley Executive chair... $400 or so but so worth it. I'm fairly lean but I like the good high and wide chair with padding

I have the same chair - money well spent indeed. One can find these on sale at Office Depot occasionally and save $100 or so if the timing is right.

You can find big and tall chairs under your budget from Chairs Point. I also know about these from here and it's just amazing. I think you should give it a try.

+1 on the Aeron. My wife and I have had my Aeron for over 15 years. Expensive, but comes with an incredibly long warranty (I have had to use a couple times). Totally worth it.

Enjoy everything!

I bought a Herman Miller Embody 11 months ago. It's a bit expensive but definitely the best chair I've ever had for this job.

Have you had an Aeron? In the unfortunate event that I need to replace mine, I was curious how the Embody compares to the Aeron.

Well, unfortunately I didn't had the opportunity to compare both chairs in real life.

Since the only Herman Miller showroom in Germany is located in Berlin, I'd have to travel around 280 km in order to get my hands on them...

So I decided after studying all available information to buy an Embody...and that chair really more than fulfills all my needs.
