Back Pain Support Group

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek medical care. In fact, about 3 in 4 adults will experience back pain during their lifetime! The term back pain includes pain affecting the neck, midback and low back. Acute back pain may begin suddenly with intense pain but typically lasts fewer than three months. Usually, chronic back pain is persistent, steady, and ongoing.

zero gravity chair

I was wondering if anyone has used a zero gravity chair. I thought that Tipper mentioned it once. I am considering buying one, but would love to hear from others. Thanks!!!

Yes I was me the one that mentioned one. I love my Zero gravity chair!!!!! It craddles your back, so it does not put any kind of pressure on the spine. Is better than any recliner that you can get, and it is recommended for people with back issues, my Neurosurgeon was the one that recommended me to get one.
Mine is not the expensive kind, (can't afford that one), mine I bought at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $66.00. Is the best 66 dollars that I've ever spend!!!!

Please, we all obviously want more information.

I'm in South Africa and haven't hear of it. If you would give specific details that would be extremely helpful.

Many thanks.

OK, here it is! This is the one that I have, but I got mine on sale for $66.00. Maybe you can find one in the same price range. They also come in leather, etc. but of course those are more expensive, $200 and up. This is the website for the one that I have, but you can also do a Google search for "zero gravity chair" and all of the different models will pop up. Hope it helps!

I purchased a zero gravity chair from www.thebackstore.com it is worth every penny I spent on it and it is not the same as the patio or other stores that state zero gravity for example Lazyboy has one out. It does not go back nearly as far to take the pressure off the spine and tailbone.

The one I purchased was recomended by the Spine Clinic at UCDavis it completely takes all the pressure off the lower back. Mine is motorized because I do not have the arm stregnth to push it back and forth as I have MS as well. They come in all kinds of styles and colors... worth the $2000.00 I paid as I cannot sit or stand for any legnth of time without feeling intense pain. It has benefited my quality of life by giving me more time and energy during the day w/o fighting pain.

I have the one from Costco outside is I can enjoy being outside as well.

Good Luck

this chair is the best money anyone with a back issue will ever likely spend.

I bought mine refurbished for $1350. But buying a refurb can be tricky so I'd recommend buying new or really doing your research on the seller as I did. This chair is worth every cent of the savings.

The chair is called the "zero gravity chair" or the "perfect chair". It changed names when the company ownership changed hands but it's the same chair. I have the PC-095 model.
