Need Chairs For Lower Back Support? We’ve Got You Covered.

The majority of Americans these days have a daily routine that consist of long hours of being on your feet, some heavy lifting, or even sitting several hours at the office in front of a screen. Does that sound familiar? You are probably beginning to feel some minor pains and aches in your back, right?

Another factor that affects the lower back is how you sit and the type of chair used in your daily routine. 8 out of 10 Americans will have back problems at some point in their lifetime. About 54% of Americans who experience lower back pain can blame the amount of time spent sitting in front of a computer at their desk. Do you ever find yourself hunching over, with shoulders slumped in? You’re just asking for back pain when you’re regularly in that position.

Physical therapists recommend exercising throughout the week in order to strengthen the surrounding back muscles to release tension. Find yourself saying, “Been there, done that…”? Let’s be realistic, the average American isn’t exercising enough on a weekly basis. So, what other changes can be made?

FAMOUS CHAIRS IN HISTORY

Let’s start with Chapter 1: How the Chair was Invented. A chair and/or seat was designed to give rest to the body. Pretty obvious, right? Here are a few well known styles that are seen every day.

The Basic Chair: Made with four legs, a seat and back frame. This is the main design that is seen in daily at the dining table, in restaurants, and in classrooms.

The Stool: Made with 3 legs and a seat. This design of chair does not necessarily have a back frame for support as it is mainly used at bars, where you’re meant to only sit for a short period of time.

The Bench: Long back frame with seat and 4 legs. Seen mainly in parks, recreational fields and schools, this design is no stranger. It has a back frame but seems to only allow your upper back to recline while leaving an empty space near your lower back.

The Sofa: Large back frame and sectional piece that allows comfort. This is the typical spot you’re sitting when getting home from work and just need to unwind for a bit. This piece of furniture offers a wider range of seating and comfort with its design but, even then, not all are made equal.

So what’s the big deal with chair designs?

Well, there are several different chair structures that relieve the pain from the feet and legs, but what about the rest of the body; such as the lower back? If you find yourself sitting in these types of chairs regularly, do you feel like your lower back is getting the relief it needs? All of these chair designs left out one vital aspect of relief: the lower back support.  

Just like all great advancements in technology, solutions to lower back issues have been found! The name of this breakthrough solution in seating technology? Lumbar support.

You’ve probably heard of it before, but if you’re like many, nobody ever took the time to explain to you exactly what lumbar support means. Let’s start with the basics. What is lumbar? Well, in human anatomy, the “lumbar region” refers to any area near the lower spine, specifically the 5 vertebrae near the lower back that are the strongest and most flexible. The lumbar region of the spine bears the most weight and is the most flexible part of your spine, leaving it susceptible to damage from use over time. This is why having the lumbar region supported when sitting is so essential, as it takes the load off of your spine and onto the seat.

back pain

Most people experience these lower back problems when sitting in chairs that offer little to no lumbar support. These chairs will typically have a straight back (like the ones listed above), with no raised area around the lower back to support the lumbar region. While some people believe these chairs do their job just fine, they are not suitable for prolonged sitting sessions. Even some more expensive chairs that offer a lot of cushion or support for other regions of the back or neck often neglect the importance of having lumbar support. You may not notice this issue at first but over time, you will most likely develop pains in your lower back region from extended sitting sessions.

Epic Gaming Room Setups

Let’s be honest – are you ever REALLY too old to have a game room? We’ve compiled some of our favorite designs for your very own grown-up hangout. Unleash your inner gamer with these epic gaming room setups!

Rev Up Your Experience With The Ultimate Surround Sound

rev up

Take your gaming room to the next level by making sound a top priority. With games constantly upping their graphics, focusing on improving sound from your end will make you feel like you’re right in the action. You can kick it up a notch by installing a SoundShaker Seat Vibration Kit to your chair to feel each sound to its core.

Turn A Small Space Into Your Own Battlestation

turn small spot into

Just because you have a small gaming area doesn’t mean your decor needs to suffer. Whether you’re playing Battlefront or Knights of the Old Republic, designing your space like this is sure to enhance your game and help you connect with your inner jedi.

Showcase Your Collectors’ Items

showcase your collectors

Rather than keeping collectibles, memorabilia, and swag in drawers or shelves throughout the house, showcase them in your gaming room. This will give the room a personalized style and help you get in the zone as you play. Try adding one of Seatcraft’s Cuddle Seats for a cloud-like, transportive sit.

Cartoons With A Twist: Take Street Art Indoors

cartoons with a twist

If you want to showcase your artistic or edgy side, try incorporating street art based on your favorite characters and videogames. Contrasting these two mediums of art will give your game room a truly original feel.

Customize Your Own Alien Spacecraft

customize alien

If you’re up for the challenge, design your game room to look like the inside of an alien spacecraft or a military combat vehicle. The picture says it all: you will be completely transported to the fantasy realm of your choice. Try adding one of Seatcraft’s Reclining Windsor Seats to add a deep, luxurious chair that gives you the comfort you’re craving.

Lighting, Lighting, Lighting

lighting

Lighting is one of the most important things to remember when transforming your game room from average to epic. Pick blue, green, purple, or red lights to enhance the video game of your choice– or even mix and match to capture your desired feel. These Seatcraft Excalibur LX Seats feature ambient base lighting and lit cup holders, making them perfect additions to your lighting-focused game room!

The Hosting Arena

hosting arena

Gaming with friends? Whether it’s Call of Duty or FIFA, you can turn your game room into the perfect hosting arena by incorporating Seatcraft’s Rialto Flip Arm Theater Seats that offer options for a stadium feel without the risers. Start with one row, or add three; it’s all up to you! These reclining seats also have amazing lumbar support and chaiselounger footrests, perfect for hours of gameplay. Add a galaxy ceiling, bordered by ambient light, to make it completely your own!

The Virtual Library

virtual library

Don’t sell your old games; show them off! Create your very own library of computer games, old GameCube or Gameboy games, even new PS4 games. You can even include fun neon signs, figurines, old game consoles, and playing cards to personalize the space. Try our Seatcraft Genesis Sectional to accommodate friends and give your space more room for company. It’s the perfect reclining couch-like piece to fit any gamer’s sanctuary.
