Expert Opinions

What do experts say about Adaptic therapeutic chairs?

"Floating-seat" chairs are a potential alternative to an exercise ball. Generally, the goal of these "unstable" seats is to enable activation of spinal muscles during long periods of sitting. I am currently not aware of any long-term study results. To those lookig to invest in such aids, I would recommend inspecting the product and trying it for yourself. You might also want to look for comments and user experiences online.

The tilting seat improves overall posture and actively exercises abdominal and pelvic muscles. The organs of the pelvic area also receive greater blood flow, which helps in treating functional infertility, prostate problems, and hemorrhoids.

As an outpatient physical therapist, I see a wide spectrum of conditions; however, back pain is clearly the dominant diagnosis by proportion among my patients. To treat a patient, I need to discover the cause of their back pain, and sedentary lifestyle has proven to be by far the most common cause.

Given the substantial changes to lifestyle and the emergence of new lines of work particularly in relation to the development of information technology, sitting has become the predominant posture at work today.
