How $60 and 15 Minutes a Day Changed My Work From Home Life
If you’d told me a month ago I’d be working from home for 40 hours a week, I would have said you were crazy!
In today’s health climate, I’ve been stuck inside more than I ever expected and my makeshift home office has been terrible for my lower back pain (among other things). With so much going on, I can hardly stop from hunching over, sitting for too long, and spending way too much time in front of my computer.
(Here’s my husband’s workspace…in the GARAGE…and mine with my new CEO! 😂)
Everyone knows working in front of a computer all day can be torture for your back, but no one ever has a realistic solution for how to fix it! Or at least they didn’t until now…
Thankfully, there’s an easier way to ease chronic back pain, and it only takes 15 minutes a day!
It’s called BetterBack. I fell in love with it and you will too!
How BetterBack Works
Despite what you might have heard, good posture starts and ends in the pelvis.
Other back supports I’ve tried usually only focus on your lumbar spine, which left me feeling sore and aching after too much sitting during the workday.
That’s where BetterBack comes in!
Instead of focusing on the wrong parts of my posture, BetterBack tackles back pain by stabilizing my pelvis, restoring my spine’s natural curvature, and providing the lumbar support my body’s needs.
Because of its lightweight portability, BetterBack works by making literally every chair I sit in ergonomic.
I don’t have an office at home, so I’ve been making do with every free space I can find. Sitting at the kitchen table can be good for a meal, but it isn’t good for a full 8-hour workday!
The reason BetterBack works so well is because of the way our spines work. You may already know, but our spines aren’t straight – they have a natural, inward curve like this:
Most of the chairs we sit in, however, have an L shape, which forces the spine out of its natural shape. If you’re working from home like I am, you probably don’t have an expensive ergonomic chair just lying around. Normal chairs were clearly invented before desk jobs – and they’re horrible for us!
The BetterBack counteracts this problem by keeping your spine in the position that it wants to be in, no matter where you’re sitting – at your desk, on your couch, on a plane – anywhere!
The BetterBack supports the whole spine (including the pelvic area), which is why it provides instant relief for people like me who are stuck trying to make the best out of these long weeks working from home!
What Makes BetterBack Better Than Other Options
BetterBack wasn’t just developed with the help of doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists, it’s worn and recommended by them too!
Like us, founder Katherine Krug was spending over 12 hours a day in front of her computer, and her sciatica pain made it difficult to concentrate on her work or go out and enjoy life.
After trying dozens of different products, therapies, and techniques (who else can relate??) to ease her back pain, the BetterBack was born!
There are plenty of “natural back pain relief” solutions on the market, but they aren’t perfect! Some help with alignment, but make it difficult to breathe and can be really bulky under your clothes. Others only help when you sit at your desk. Some can help improve your posture but can give you knee pain after just a few minutes of wear.
With BetterBack, I can take posture support with me everywhere I go now. Whether I’m working at the kitchen table or on the couch, BetterBack folds into a small pouch I can easily take with me anywhere, providing comfort and support in every room in the house.
Getting Rid Of Chronic Back Pain While Working From Home
BetterBack is versatile enough to work on every chair in the house. Working from home hasn’t been a picnic, but BetterBack has helped to ease the pain I was feeling after 8 hours (or more!) every day sitting in uncomfortable chairs.
Best of all, I don’t have to wear BetterBack all day if I don’t want to. Even just 15 minutes with BetterBack is enough time to train my pelvis and posture muscles to keep their natural, anatomical position.
For now, BetterBack is the only thing in my toolkit making work from home bearable, but I’ll be able to take it with me on the go when I’m traveling too! If you’re stuck at home and starting to feel the aches and pains in your back from too much time in front of the computer – do what I did and try BetterBack today! You won’t regret it.
