As a follow up to our article on all weather garden furniture, we decided to look into which type of outdoor chair would be the most comfortable and supportive for those with a bad back.
Dealing With Back Pain When Sitting Outside
As you may know this can be a debilitating issue when left unchecked, as chronic back discomfort can lead to distractions and pain when you’re trying to enjoy your spare time, resulting in a lower standard of living and often depression as a result.
You may have consulted with your doctor about the medical solutions, however a lot of these can be based around taking pain killers, which don’t solve the underlying cause of your pain.
While sitting on outdoor chairs during a family BBQ, you will often be in the same position for a long time, enjoying some BBQ food, drinking, and chatting into the long hours of the evening. All of this time spent in a static position can make your back cease up and cause a lot of pain, which is why it’s important to look for a chair that both supports the back of your neck, and your lumbar spine.
A High Backed Reclining Garden Chair – Supportive and Adjustable for Back Pain
We have found through the people we have interviewed on this issue, that choosing a garden chair with a high back that also reclines, is the best solution for long term back pain. Allowing your head to rest back seems to properly align your spine, keeping you in a more neutral position, and preventing you from hunching over in an unnatural and damaging sitting position.
After browsing the local and national websites for a solution to this, we found the reclining garden furniture from Garden Centre Shopping UK to be the best value for money, that comes with all the features discussed above (reclining back, high back rest, cushions included).
