Second this - but make sure you get the freedom model and don’t cheap out with the Liberty model! I’ve been using my Freedom chair for years but when I had the Liberty my elbows kept knocking into the seat rest (it’s the design) right on my funny bone and it was excruciating

My problem wasn’t the chair, it was the height of my standard desk built for a 6’ tall man, which I am not. I have a full electric standing desk at home and it’s been a miracle now that I can adjust the work surface lower than a standard desk height (and standing throughout the day is awesome too). When I work at home, no pain. On days I have to be in the office, lots of lower back stretches at night.

Backjoy chair liner is really good for realigning you!

Get a task chair with adjustable arm rests. Get up every hour to stretch.
