Getting the back pains. Can anyone recommend a chair in the $150 to $600 range? Huge range because I don’t have a budget - specifically, my criteria is best value for price.

Autonomous AI — ~$350 and was the best investment I ever made. Work 13 hour days consistently and have had a herniated disk — no longer have back pain. I’d get the big chair with the head rest, can send a link if needed!


Got an Ergo 2 and it’s been great for the $

Herman Miller Sayl. It’s at the upper end of your price range but is super comfortable and has really made a difference in my back pain. Make sure to get the adjustable height arms. https://www.hermanmiller.com/products/seating/office-chairs/sayl-chairs/

Used Herman Miller Aeron


I can only find a couple used nearby my city. The seller looks sketchy. Is there a good place to purchase online, and/or verify it’s not a knock-off?

Sometimes I got back pain from whatever random workstation I was put at at the client. I’d also recommend some simple back stretches everyday! 3 mins


What part of your back

Good question - to be honest, both lower and upper!

Standing desk

Gaming chair

After getting a good chair make sure your monitor is eye level. Is you are using a laptop than get a stand and keyboard and watch some YouTube videos on setting everything up correctly

Laura Davidson Bowery if you like the Sayl but not the price

Didn’t mean to be so harsh haha

Do yourself a favor and get Steelcase - Gesture... not about fancy looks.. just great ergo and support

I just bought a Steelcase series 1 and love it. Cost about $500 from West Elm

La-Z-Boy. Use your lap to hold your laptop.

Following for when I'm ready to toss my office chair out and invest

Thanks all for the recommendations! Looking into a few and making an order tonight.

What did you decide?
