My lower back is in a lot of pain right now and its cause I have a terrible chair. Anyone have recommendations on what I should get?

EDIT: Yes I realize I sit too much so I need to start moving around a lot more often.

I actually could use something else, too. A gaming chair should do the job for me. This is just one type:

Have you tried merely placing a pillow behind your lower back.

I also find that office chairs these days "recline" too much.

I prefer to be able to lean back and NOT end up lying down.

My chair...no matter what levers I pull, push or turn, always tilts back when I lean back....and then I end up slouching.  I wish it would remain upright.

I have similar ideas. Like using an old low armchair.

I've tried a pillow but I'm worried how that will effect my posture.

So you are leaning back...any feet rest?

I might need a few days of bed rest and ice packs to heal my back.

I have the worst offi chair at home. No back support.

I mean 800 dollars for a Steel case chair might be an investment but thats crazy...

Just head out to your local IKEA where they have a huge selection of chairs.

Try them out and find one that is good for you.  They are way cheaper than $800.

This is what I have at home. Across the pond it would be, what? $70-80?

Several hours a day, depending on what I'm working on. I tend to lean forwards when I work, so I don't use the backrest much, but when I do, it tilts back some. It was a bit disconcerting at first, but I grew to enjoy the extension. Grin
