The muscles the lower-middle back ache when I’m sitting at my desk. They feel like they are being pulled. I try to adjust my posture, my chair, etc., and nothing is working. Is there anything I can do to get some relief during the day when I HAVE to sit at my desk and work?

I have constant pain on my left side upper back. It seems to mostly be around my shoulder blade, almost under it. My neck also gets sore. My entire back can get pretty painful as well, but it’s not constant. I find it diffacult to sit with my back straight without slouching for a long period, especially if I am not thinking about it. My left side of my body seems to be uneven with my right, like its lower. It’s like my ribs and my hip are trying to touch. I have suspected that this could be scoliosis, but I would like other opinions to see if it is likly scoliosis or maybe something else. Also, if it makes any difference, I am a 22 yr old female and have had two children. I became pregnant 5 months after the birth of my first child, and I had a lot of pain during pregnancy. I have visited a chiropractor and taken pain medication but none of this seems to help for any long period of time. thanks a lot for any help you can give.
Also wanted to add that this has been going on for at least one year, so I know it isn’t just a pulled muscle or anything like that. The chiropractor wasnt able to determine anything for sure since I was pregnant when I went

My current computer chair is crap and I have to buy a new one.

My problem is that I slouch forward when I sit, causing upper back pain.

Can anyone tell me what the best type of chair is? I’m thinking of either leather or Mesh/Aeron.

Would a built in head pillow be beneficial?



Why do I have lower back pain when I walk for any distance?

I like walking in the country but it’s spoiled as my lower back starts to hurt after about 5 minutes. It also happens when shopping or if I stand for any length of time. It eases immediately I sit down or sometimes when upright I bend forward and stretch my lower back muscles which helps. It never hurts when sitting or lying.
I don’t feel it’s worth bothering the doc with but I am puzzled by this pain! Any ideas anyone and any solutions?
