Complaining of Back Pain?
One problem with sitting in a standard chair is that there is little to no opportunity for movement. With this in mind, it is easy to see how the muscles become tired, resulting in poor posture. This poor posture not only inhibits proper blood flow, but also may, over time, cause back pain. The small muscles that support the spine are not often exercised, like the larger muscles groups in our body, therefore, those muscles are unable to support us and lead to ‘the slump’ while sitting. This is where the ball chair comes in. These smaller, very important postural muscles are ‘worked’ and strengthened by the dynamic seating, slight adjustments and ease of movement that the ball encourages. Further, sitting should mimic standing, in that the body should maintain proper alignment. If this alignment is off, we put pressure on the discs between the vertebrae, as well as ligaments and the muscles themselves. Sitting on the ball alleviates these issues.
