5 Ergonomic Office Chairs That Will Decrease Back Pain & Improve Your Posture

If having to work from home wasn't tough enough already, try sitting in an uncomfortable chair. If your organization was fortunate enough to have comfortable chairs to sit in all day, using a kitchen chair as a replacement is tough.

Sitting for long periods of time causes has consequences. Factor in a bad chair and you're going to have a rough time.

The side effects of a bad chair include:

  • Poor blood circulation

  • Increased body fat

  • Lessened concentration

  • Digestion Problems

A good office chair will be a slight investment, however, spending money on quality to prevent years of back pain seems like a good trade off...

Wouldn't you agree?

Here are 5 ergonomic chairs you can consider that will improve productivity.


5) Autonomous ErgoChair 2

Autonomous is a great brand that not only makes office chairs, but standing desks as well. The Ergochair 2 can support up to 350lbs, and has adjustment options.

If you're on a budget and can't whip up $500+ then this chair will be just fine! It has a built-in neck & headrest with a mesh back for great airflow.


4) Viva Office Mesh High Back Chair

If you're budget is extremely small, then this will be perfect for you. It has a dedicated head/neck rest, tilt & tension controls, adjustable lumbar support with seat height and arm rests.


This can only support up to 250 lbs, uses PVC and plastics. The quality won't be on par with a $500+ chair.. so you get what you pay for. Luckily, It's still an ergonomic chair which is a major improvement over a rickety dining room chair.

3) Embody Chair by Herman Miller

Got money to spare? This chair is a masterpiece. This was designed for the sole purpose of increasing circulation.

it has an aluminum base which makes it lightweight! Don't let the lightweight fool you though. It's very durable. The cool thing about the chair is that it adjusts to fit the contour of your back and spine.

Did I mention that this chair has won numerous awards?

2) AmazonBasics Mid-Back Office Chair

If you have no budget at all, then this chair will get the job done!

The chair is simple but effective. It has adjustable seat height, leather padded, is BIFMA certified and is super affordable! However, the arms aren't adjustable, there's no mesh, and padding is limited.

You can't be too picky with features when dealing with low price point chairs.

1) Steelcase Gesture Chair

Is this not the coolest office chair you've ever seen?

Much like the Herman Miller chair we looked at, this chair also adjusts to your contours. This chair promotes movement which means that the armrests swivel 360 degrees, and allows you to be comfortable in any position.

While this chair is very, very comfy, it is also fairly heavy. At around 70lbs, some people may find it difficult to move it from room-to-room or to a different floor. It's also not the cheapest chair available. If you're tired of back pain, then this chair is a good investment.
