Low back pain is a common problem that can be experienced while sitting. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, lack of movement, and muscle imbalances. It's important to address the root cause of low back pain in order to effectively manage it and prevent it from becoming a chronic issue.

Poor Posture As A Root Cause

One of the primary causes of low back pain while sitting is poor posture day after day. When we sit for long periods, as many of us do, it’s easy to slouch or hunch over, which can put a strain on the muscles and joints of the lower back. It can also put the body at risk of disc compression and degeneration over time, disc herniation, or spondylolisthesis.


Another factor that can contribute to low back pain while sitting is a lack of movement. When we sit for extended periods of time, our muscles can become stiff and fatigued, which can lead to pain and discomfort. Taking frequent breaks to stand up, stretch, and move around can help to alleviate some of this discomfort. Additionally, incorporating exercises that target the muscles of the lower back, such as planks, bird dogs, and bridges, can help to strengthen and stabilize these muscles, reducing the risk of low back pain.

Muscle imbalances can also contribute to low back pain while sitting. For example, if we sit with poor posture and have tight hip flexors and weak gluteal muscles, this can lead to an imbalance that puts strain on the lower back. Stretching the hip flexors and strengthening the gluteal muscles can help to correct this imbalance and reduce the risk of low back pain.

Maintaining good posture while sitting can help to reduce the risk of low back pain, by aligning the spine, promoting decreased disc pressure and improving muscle balance. This includes keeping your feet flat on the ground or footrest, sitting with your hips all the way back in the chair, and aligning your ears, shoulders, and hips in a straight line.

It all sounds great to sit in good posture, but when not supported in the right places, it’s impossible to maintain it long term. But Anthros has a solution.

Anthros is the only office chair that has an independently adjustable two-part back system.

The low back pad supports the pelvis, which brings the spine into an aligned position which is supported by the upper back pad. This posture is effortlessly maintained without having to use the postural muscles. Over time, the resulting decreased disc pressure, and balanced posture can decrease pain experienced from poor posture.


If you are looking to improve posture and increase disc space while sitting, look no further than Anthros.

Anthros is the only chair in the world that is guaranteed to improve posture or your money back. The science-backed, patented design is registered with the FDA as a posture-improving chair and is proven to have the lowest pressure (most comfortable) cushion on the planet (verified by university testing).

Take the next step to reducing pain, increasing comfort, and maximizing performance!
