footstools and seats for bad back

Postby unicornio » Tue Mar 07, 2017 10:59 pm

I am recently beginning guitar, unfortunately I get lower back and hip pain when sitting, possibly Bursitis. Swelling and pain, that goes away after rest.

Can anyone recommend some online info, products etc to research, ie good seats, foot rests etc, to help me enjoy practice time more.

thankyou

Hi! There's a lot of discussions on this forum about alternatives to footstool. These include cushions and varous other supports between your left thigh and the guitar. Try search words such as Dynarette, ErgoPlay, Barnett, Gitano, for example. My back pains ended when I got a cushion under the guitar.
