Is the ergonomics of your desk, chair, monitor and keyboard correct? You could also switch it up with a yoga ball for an hour or so per day to build core strength and get some diversity in your sitting patterns.

Light Deadlifts and squats. This was what helped me the last few years when I was suffering the same. I have a standing desk, but my back pain got worse during early covid when I could not go to the gym. But after returning and doing these workouts, I felt an improvement in both my posture and my pain.

For a pinched nerve nothing has helped me more than acupuncture and massage. Years of MRIs, PT, exercise, etc did not fix it the way this could

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request. However, the note was questionable. it was from an acupuncturist, on a word doc, no real signature and just said that a standing desk would prevent pain & improve their productivity, nothing about him not being able to work without it. Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?

Finally found THE one, after over a year of searching and trying out at least 5 different ones! A nice comfortable office chair. https://ergochair.co/collections/chairs/products/ergonomics-mesh-chair-w-adjustable-headrest-and-armrest?variant=32511617597491 My criteria: mesh seat and back, arms, headrest I tried cheap ones from Amazon. Expensive, second hand gaming chairs. Tried HM Aeron (second hand) and while I didn't like the bulk and the general design, I was sold on the mesh seating. I wanted to get the ErgoChair 2 from autonomous, but it doesn't have mesh seat. AMA.

Appellate folks and lawyers who write a lot…is there a device like an iPad or something similar I can use to save case law I’m using that also allows me to jot notes on the cases and save for later? Wife mentioned after walking into my home office “hey, you kill a lot of trees.” I just find it very useful when researching to print cases, make notes on the useful portions, and go back to them later when I’m writing.
