Best office chair after fusion L5 S1?

Can anyone tell me the best office chair to purchase after fusion at L5 S1?
Price is not an issue. Any advice would truly be appreciated. Also, I would think that lumbar support (curve) would hurt a person that has had fusion? Gimme your thoughts here too!
TIA,
Ginger

Ask your doctor if the below information would help you.

I have not had surgery, but had/have extruded disc material at L5-S1 and use a HAG BALANS kneel in chair from the comfort store purchased on line.

Same situation here, and I use a Tiffany Industries model orthopedic chair that I really like. You can inflate the lumbar support to your level of comfort.

I use two through out the day.....One is just a firm chair with wheels and the other is awsome.... I think its about $500 for the one I got.

That swing seat look like it might be worth a try, its looks like it really might take the pressure of our spines because it constantly moving.

Re: Best office chair after fusion L5 - S1

Ginger,

The best thing would be to invest in a work station where you can stand up instead of sit. I did this and it has made a tremendous difference in my low back strain. Plus it is just healthier to stand up. I get more exercise during the day too. I bought mine at staples. It is basically a high table with two leaves that you can fold in. Comes in black and cherry finish and I think it was like 300$. I have my computer and monitors at eye level. I also bought a desk chair that goes up high enough so that if I get tired I can sit down.
I know it sounds crazy to stand up to work, but trust me, its great!
