Back, or lower back a.k.a. "Lumbar Support" is so-o darned important that
it is almost not fully recognized. We all actually take this for granted!!
When I am "Raising Beads for Pave setting or using my Onglette Graver, I
actually have my lower spine resting against the back supporting section of
the chair. If my spine L1, L2, L3, disks are a few inches away from that
part of the chair, I just don't have the necessary support that is so
Even in the "Bright-Cutting" stages of Diamond Setting or even Claw
Filing, my opposite arm is resting on the arm-rest. I brace my feet in a
position that they are preventing any movement of the roller-balls of the
legs. When I 'relax' my upper-shoulder muscles, there too, I will use the
upper section & back-supporting section of the simple 'secretarial' style
Price is not the factor in buying a chair, if you do...sit down in one &
move around, get the 'feel' of it. Do you feel comfortable..are at 'one
with it'? Is it holding different parts of your back & spine? If so, you
just bought it..:>)
Remember that this chair will make money for you, why so? You going to
sitting in it for many, many hours in a day!!
The chair, MUST FULLY EMBRACE YOU, I tell my students you mustn't have any
space between your lower back and the chair..not one inch is allowed,
Try this right, relax your back muscles, where does it rest against? It
rests against your chair, not empty space!!!
