How BackStrong is able to Reduce & Eliminate Back Pain
Nothing can put a hard stop on your plans quite like back pain. Planned a hike with some friends? That’s getting cancelled. Wanted to finally tidy up the garage? It’s going to have to wait. Just getting up and moving around can cause you to wince, to the point where all you can do is lay in bed and hope for it to go away.
Nearly 65 million Americans report a recent episode of back pain. And some 16 million adults -- which makes up 8 percent of all adults -- experience persistent or chronic back pain. If misery loves company, we’ve got plenty of it.
All joking aside, back pain takes a toll on you as well as your wallet. Health care costs and indirect costs due to back pain are over $12 billion per year. And every year, 83 million days of work are lost because an employee stayed home with back pain.
So what can you do to fight back? Well, a lot of it has to do with how you sit.
Americans do a lot of sitting: a new survey found that 86% of full-time American workers sit pretty much all day -- not just at work, but while watching TV, lounging, using the home computer, etc. Sedentary jobs have increased 83% since 1950 according to the American Heart Association.
If you hunch and slouch in your chair, or are constantly shifting from one side to another in order to get comfortable, you’re actively doing damage to your back. Unsupported postures cause the loads on your spine to disperse incorrectly, weakening the tissues in your lower back. And when this happens, the complex network of muscles, discs, and joints in your back are pushed beyond their tolerable limit -- which causes mild to severe pain.
Therefore, it’s clear that in order to alleviate back pain, you must fix the way you sit.
And that’s where we come in.
Because when it comes to standard office chairs, there really isn’t much variety. You can get some high-end chairs with nice fabric that certainly look fancy; however, at the end of the day they’re all basically the same thing: a stationary seat mounted to the base with a singular back unit that doesn’t mimic human movement.
So we decided to throw away the rule book and create a chair that’s never been seen before. You see, we took our time and built this the right way. And we made sure the end result was a chair that would finally help alleviate back pain, as well as pain throughout your neck, hips, pelvis and knees.
Our “saddle-like” seat swivels and tilts for maximum freedom of movement. That way, you won’t have to constantly shift your body position in order to stay comfortable. Our revolutionary

BackStrong C1 chair was designed with Sit-In-Motion Technology (SIMTEC), allowing you 360-degree swivel capability, and smooth rolling casters to move with the body.
Whether you lean forward or backward, the BackStrong will move with you. That’s because we implemented everything we know about the body’s joints and how they move, so that you and the chair are in perfect harmony. You can sit in it comfortably for hours on end and when you get up, you won’t have that familiar impulse to grasp your lower back and try to “stretch out the pain.” Because BackStrong was built with 6 years of investment in your back and overall health.
If you’re looking for a solution to nagging, persistent back pain, you really ought to check out the revolutionary design of the BackStrong. Your back will thank you!
