I'm back to work part time (10-weeks post ALIF/PLIF) and am really feeling the the non-support my office chair provides - this is a $200+ chair with supposedly lumbar support (NOT). I've been looking on Amazon to see what I can get to provide relief from the pressure on the lumbar area.
I've also noticed a problem with my upper back as I'm not in proper alignment and I'm sure working at a desk all the time and my knitting/crochet activities have contributed to this. I did order a corrective bra device for the upper area and hope this will help with the upper back and shoulder alignment problem.
My 3-month checkup is on Sep 10 and I will deffinitely bring all this up with my doctor. In the meantime, I want to ask everyone here if they purchased any support items to use at work, home or in the car and how they worked for you.
