- I had been sewing on standard industrial sewing machines for over 20
years and had experienced moderate bouts of lower back and mid back
discomfort over the years. I had tried every kind of chair known to
man, and woman, assuming that this was the problem, but it never
seemed to improve. It wasn't until I brought a friend of mine (a
chiropractor) to work one day to show off my new work space that he
suggested that the sewing machine table was about 3" shorter than it
should be. Now while I am male, I can hardly be considered tall
(5'9"), but once we adjusted the machine table legs to 3" higher I
have never had back pain since. I didn't even have to adjust to the
higher table, it seemed quite natural and comfortable from the get go.
Not suggesting that this is the answer to everyone's back pain, but it
certainly solved mine.
Can't hurt to try,
