Back Pain Sufferer Need Some Opinion

Hey guys, I always sit in front of my computer for a whole day and I have really bad posture, so my neck and back are always painful, which reduces my productivity to a large extent. Anyone have any suggestion to help me?

I searched online about solutions too and found something interesting called Darma, a smart cushion. The creator says the cushion can monitor sitting time and stress level and remind you to take a break when necessary. Interesting, huh? I wanna pre-order one but I am not sure if it’s worth buying. I would really appreciate that someone can help me to make a final decision.

Many thanks for your help!

    If your insurance will cover a few sessions with a physical therapist it could be a lot more helpful than a gadget. They can develop exercise & stretching routines to strengthen your body, reduce your pain & teach you correct posture & techniques. Prevention is the best when it comes to spines because there often isn't a cure. Do the work now to save yourself a lot of pain in the future.
