How Can An Ergonomic Chair Protect Your Health?

26 July 2021

If you work in an office, the chances are that you sit at your desk all day. A lot of office chairs are, however, not designed ergonomically. As a result, office workers have been discovered to be at significant risk of backache, even more so than physical workers. Sitting for long periods puts tremendous strain on the back and shoulder muscles. This isn't helped by the fact that most people do not sit in good postures. Sitting in an uncomfortable chair prevents you from sitting in the correct posture, putting a lot of stress on your back muscles.

A bad sitting posture results in different unfavorable effects on a person's health, some of which are discussed below. 

Back Pain

Perhaps the most common side effect of poor sitting conditions and posture, backache, affects a substantial percentage of people who work in corporate settings. This is as a result of the high strain placed on the muscles and joints of the back. Sitting in a hunched position is an example of a bad sitting position that may affect you in the long run. Backache caused by bad posture could also result from limited blood supply to the back regions, which results in painful stiffness. 

Poor Digestion

Slouching leads to a compression of the organs in the abdominal region. This compression affects the organs involved in the digestive process, slowing down your metabolism. This can result in the development of a slow digestion process.

Cervical Spondylosis

This refers to the wearing down of the spinal discs in the neck. Although cervical spondylosis is much more common among older people, a bad sitting posture that puts a lot of strain on the muscles and joints of your neck puts you at significant risk of developing it. 

Pinched Nerves

A poor sitting position can lead to the displacement of your bones, causing them to rub against neighboring nerves. This results in a constriction of the nerves causing severe pain in the body. This pain can spread to different parts of the body besides the back, neck, and shoulders. 

Reduced Lung Efficiency

Poor posture can limit the amount of air you take into your lungs. Your lungs may also not function properly due to the squeezing and compression they are subjected to. This can result in shortness of breath and even limit the amount of oxygen transferred to the various parts of the body. This can become serious to the extent of increasing the risk of the development of cardiovascular ailments.
