  • It's a lot better than standing for 6 hours at a stretch with no relief...lol.
    When I sit at my desk here at home I use a stool, tilt my chair back a bit so my knees are a little bit higher than my bumm, and place a small pillow behind the small of my back. Getting up about once an hour to walk around, use the bathroom, go outdoors for fresh air, or whatever, is a good way to relieve the strain.
    Hope you become comfortable soon.

  • I haven't had a desk job in years, but what can make it feel better is if you squeeze the vajayjay and butt hole muscle it helps it a lot, I learned that in physical therapy I had issues with my tail bone due to my last job. (sorry for the explanation it's late and that's about the only way I can explain in right now, hope it make sense)

  • Oh yeah!!! Especially since I lost 135 pounds since last July. I have no fat on my butt and it's not a comfortable thing to sit here.

    Now that I weigh so much less I can eventually (soon, I hope) get a new desk chair and it won't wear out as fast.

  • Most desk jobs have much more comfortable chairs then the desk you are sitting in for school. That being said I spend a lot of my time in the shop too.
