What is the best chair to use on the beach for people with herniated disc? thank you.
Moved to appropriate forum.
This is a tricky question, and probably best answered in general, not specifically for a herniated disc. Specific questions about your herniated disc situation would necessitate me knowing you, which disc is herniated and where, and how you hold your body. Taking a class with a Gokhale Method Teacher is your best bet.
It's not just the chair, but how you sit in it. Most traveling chairs encourage a tucked pelvis, but, even if it doesn't, you could still be tucking your pelvis and rounding your spine. Ideally, while you're relaxing, you could be stretchsitting. This would require a chair that allows you to keep your behind behind you, and lengthen your spine using the back for traction.
If you look back in Esther's Blog posts, there is one a few back about sitting on a couch, which can be helpful in lounging without doing damage to your spine.
I hope this helps!
