A good back support or lumbar support is essential when you’re sitting at your table for prolonged durations. Not only does it provide extended support to your lower back, but it also ensures that sitting for a longer period of time doesn’t have any adverse medical conditions like compressions, stiffness, etc. As a matter of fact, almost all corporate sector companies which require its employees to sit at their work desk for extended time periods always provide some sort of lumbar support seat cushion which reduces the risk of the employees being medically unfit, and as they are comfortable, it also ensures that their workflow increases. It is basic biology, that if your lower back has to deal with a lot of pain, over time its tissues, muscles, and ligaments might tense up causing severe problems. Under constant pressure and stress, there’s a high chance that your spine locks up, gets stiff, or just excessively hurts. While initially, it may start off as just a little pain, over time this problem may lead to serious issues for your back. In some cases, this has even lead to randomly experienced back spasms. To stop this from happening to you, it is recommended that every person hooked to a desk for longer durations uses a special seat cushion.
