  1. I’d be interested to know if you have a guide for office workers like me in relation to spinal support and lumbar supports. I imagine it’d be of benefit to anyone sat all day like drivers too. Swimming relieves my mild discomfort, but prevention is better than cure as my physio keeps telling me!

    1. Hi Tommy,

      With regard to driving, some of the principles in the above document will apply. Obviously not having your knees at 90 degrees but correct lumbar support is important.

      Have you had a workstation assessment completed at work?
