With a recent survey suggesting that over a third of Britons have experienced an increase in back pain during the lockdown, we thought we’d share our best back supports to help you work from home in comfort.
A great way to support your posture and prevent lower back pain is to add a lumbar belt to your desk chair. These act as comfortable padding that you can strap around the backrest of your chair.
The lumbar is the lower part of your spine. While your spine should have a natural ‘S’ shape, a chair with no lumbar support can allow your spine to move into a 'C' shape especially if you hunch over a desk while working on a laptop.
We’re sharing three of our best back supports which are perfect for using at home so you can stop worrying about your posture and back health, and get back to acing your daily work tasks and projects.
