a4240294(StatePoint) Small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) commonly offer an array of perks to promote healthy living, like ergonomic seating, yet back pain is still pervasive among many of their employees, according to a recent Office Depot survey.

Eighty-seven percent of SMB employees surveyed sit in a chair on a daily basis, and more than half of them report suffering from back pain.

Using a chair with the proper seat height, seat pan depth and lumbar support can alleviate pain, promote circulation and provide spine support.
