There are multiple reasons why I’ve continually had lower back pain:
1) Genetics (my dad has suffered with serious back problems his entire adult life).
2) Sitting at a desk all day.
3) Frequently overdoing the elliptical machine on the hardest possible setting for the maximum time allowed.
4) Stomach sleeper.
I’ve been using the garden-variety Costco desk chair for several years, and though nothing is wrong with it, its lower back support leaves much to be desired. Though I’m amongst the cheapest people you might come across, I figured that it was about time that I spent the necessary money to get the best possible office chair.
