5 Best Ergonomic Office Chairs for Coccyx Pain & Discomfort (April 2018 Update)

This article will help you to choose the  best office ergonomic chair to help diminish or completely resolve tailbone pain.

Coccyx pain sucks.

This type of pain, the one you would never really think of before actually having it, is pretty annoying. 🙁

Moving around the seat, trying to sit on pillows and other ways of trying to relief coccyx pain…no bueno.

Same applies to other types of pain, including neck, back, hip and leg

Truth be said, in most cases this pain disappears within a couple of weeks, so you don’t need to bother with an ergonomic chair at all!

However there are certain things that can, unfortunately, bring it back.

They include:

  • Falls
  • Prolonged seating
  • Ageing and others degenerative issues

In these cases you probably need to consider an ergonomic solution and here are some ideas for you.

All these chairs have everything one needs for taking care of their backbone – high level of adjustability, comfort and ergonomics.

Coccyx Pain Relief – Quick Fix

Even though I do believe that an ergonomic chair is a must have in the long term (I have the Aeron myself), there are quick fixes to the tailbone pain.

All you need is a pillow!

These cushions are designed in a way to help reduce the pressure on the tailbone, so that the pain disappears (just like in the video above).

Here are the 3 types listed – wedge, cushion and donut cushion.

These can be used in your car, office or any other place where you need to sit, but can’t bring your ergonomic chair to.
