That is not true at all. Yes, of course exercises like pilates and yoga can do a lot to help your back and posture as the y strengthen your core and increase flexibility. However, to say a chair that you sit in for multiple hours a day makes no significant difference is patently false. A good ergonomic office chair that is adjusted properly makes a huge difference to your comfort and posture.
I said no amount of chair is going to fix your back and that we are not built for sitting that long.

Nothing about patent truths or falsehoods. You need to find some joy, less judgement. Don't read just to respond with the assertion of your opinion. Read to understand. Why must everything be an affront to your opinion?

I have a back story, and I fixed it. I'm basically sharing how I saved my back, not applying absolute truths to your purchase of whichever sitting tool you have. If you feel good with your purchase then that works for you. Bravo. I wonder how many people fork out for a chair, never move their bodies and think a chair is going to save them?

Good luck to you and your back.

In that case Traubert, the way you phrased it was very clumsy and heavily implied that a good chair is not a useful purchase. It is a very useful and indeed essential purchase for anyone sitting at a computer and table for multiple hours. However yes, it is not in itself a 'definitive solution' to back pain.

As for the "you need to find some joy" part; cringe.

For you, if you have the capacity for self-reflection: You come across as terse, wounded and frustrated. Sometimes things are neither right nor wrong, they just are.
