Do you spend more than 6 hours at your work desk? Do you normally experience pain (in the back, shoulders and neck) at the end of the day after leaving from work? Maybe you need to change the chair you use at work.

‘When you work in the office, you’re bound to spend more time sitting in a chair. Forget office, sitting in same position for a long time anywhere is not good because it exerts excessive stress on your spine,’ says Dr Jahnavi Acharya, consultant physiotherapist at Revival Bone and Joint Hospital, Mumbai. An ergonomic chair is quite different from a traditional chair. It is specifically designed to provide complete rest to the main structures of your body that are prone to get stressed while working.
