What are the demands placed on intervertebral discs in office chairs? Sure, on the one hand they prevent herniated discs. On the other hand, a disc chair should alleviate existing back problems - and enable back-friendly sitting after a herniated disc again. In this category you will find desk chairs from HARA STUHL that meet these requirements. Our specialist advisors will be happy to help you find the right work chair for your back and your intervertebral discs.
Intervertebral disc chair for long periods of sitting in the office
Back problems caused by a lack of exercise are often a result of rigid sitting. Sitting for long periods in a conventional office chair can even lead to a herniated disc. If you work for hours in front of the PC, your intervertebral discs are flat. Statically squeezed between the seat and the backrest, the back stiffens. The deep connective tissue becomes caked, the irritated nerves become inflamed, in the worst case there is a risk of a herniated disc. The back-friendly models by HARA STUHL, which allow more movement in the office than any other office chair, provide a remedy. Because HARA STUHL does away with static sitting. With its divided seat, the HARA CHAIR promotes ergonomically optimal sitting in motion. With many changing seating positions, HARA CHAIR strengthens the back while sitting and even promotes fat burning. Slight muscle soreness is normal at first.
What are intervertebral discs anyway? Intervertebral discs are our body's shock absorbers. A total of 23 intervertebral discs are in the spine. The intervertebral discs protect the vertebral bodies from vibrations. Intervertebral discs consist of a gelatinous mass that is enclosed by fiber cartilage.
How does a herniated disc develop? The protective ring of fibrous cartilage cracks over time. The gelatinous core can penetrate through these holes and press on the nerves in the spinal canal.
How is a herniated disc noticeable? A herniated disc hurts. The supply area of the nerve on which the damaged intervertebral disc is pressing is symptomatically affected. For example, the pain can radiate into the leg. If the herniated disc is more pronounced, it can even lead to numbness, paralysis and organic deficits in the bladder and intestines.
What to do if you have a herniated disc Experts advise staying calm and avoiding panic. In most cases, the herniated disc regresses by itself through rest and physiotherapy. But in some cases, for example in the case of paralysis, only an operation may help.
How do I prevent a herniated disc? Sleep on a good mattress, go swimming or jogging every now and then, and change position more often when sitting - the spine is also happy about that.
Why is exercise so important for the intervertebral discs? The intervertebral discs are not supplied by veins, but by osmotic fluid exchange. Movement kneads the intervertebral discs well, nourishes them well and works better as a cushioning element for the resilient spine.
The intervertebral discs live long
The HARA STUHL models were specially developed to support the intervertebral discs and the back. The office chairs are of high quality and can be adjusted individually. With the divided seat, the HARA STUHL is the only office chair that enables moving sitting. For ergonomically optimal sitting in the office, the HARA CHAIR is also equipped with a back-friendly backrest and a breathable cover and is available in numerous colors.
Sitting at the desk without back pain
Specially designed for long periods of sitting in the office, the patented, split seat is integrated into all HARA STUHL models. Only the ergonomic back support differs. For example, the NIE and NWL models are not only equipped with a split seat but also with a split backrest. This is not the case with the ZEN-LS, ZEN and CAE models, whose closed backrests primarily provide effective support for the lumbar area. The HARA CHAIR model ZEN-LS even has an integrated upholstery. This lordosis support relieves the lumbar spine. Due to this stronger lordosis support, the ZEN-LS model is particularly suitable for people with a strong hollow back or after a herniated disc. In contrast to the ZEN-LS, the ZEN and CAE models are equipped with a light lumbar support - so they are ideal for people with a slightly hollow back. Their ergonomic shapes support the loins as well as the shoulders and are very comfortable due to their padding. The CAE model, an executive chair, is particularly suitable for tall and heavy people thanks to its high backrest and stable construction.
The conscious decision for an ergonomically designed workplace quickly pays off. Because the dynamic models from HARA CHAIR are specially designed for more movement in the office and help reduce lost work and days off due to back and intervertebral disc problems. Even after hours, it is still possible to work comfortably and without tiring while sitting.
Which model is “the” suitable intervertebral disc office chair for your intervertebral discs depends on your personal requirements. The body weight plays a role as well as the individual symptoms. If you have already had a herniated disc in the lumbar spine, you could benefit from a lumbar support. You can try for yourself at home with a rolled up towel or pillow whether you find the S-padding in the lower back comfortable.
