Strengthen your core while sitting! While these ball chairs may look incredibly uncomfortable or even impossible to sit on, once you’ve tried one, you’ll realize they’re easier to use than you think.
The balance ball chair is pretty much exactly what it sounds like—it’s basically a lightweight chair frame with a large ball (made from vinyl with no latex content) instead of a seat. Developed by a leading chiropractor, Dr. Randy J. Weinzoff (specialist in exercise/sports rehabilitation, and alleviation of chronic pain), these ball chairs are designed to be comfortable and provide ergonomic back support while at the same time helping you exercise (sitting at your desk). You can’t slump down or have bad posture with this chair. If you do, you may just find yourself on the floor! Instead, you’re forced to use your core muscles to keep yourself planted firmly on the ball (feet planted on the floor) and this keeps your spine in alignment like it should be.
These chairs are perfect for anyone who needs to work on their posture or who wants to get a workout while working. If you don’t have time to go to the gym, for example, using one of these ball chairs is a great way to work your core muscles while doing other tasks. You don’t even necessarily have to use the Physio Ball Chair while sitting at a desk. You can use it in your living room while watching television, reading, or working on any hobby. It’s also very good for those who have suffered from back injuries. Because it keeps the spine aligned correctly and doesn’t put any pressure on the back, it can help relieve pain from nerve compression, slipped discs, and other injuries. If you have back pain, you may find that the Ball Chair is one of the best investments you’ll ever make.
