Guess when your knees were shot before you ever had a job in a chair your safe. No way could I ever put my foot in same chair I'm setting in. Hell I have trouble just putting my foot in another chair to trim my toenails.

Ever since this thread appeared I've been trying hard not to tuck my left foot under my right leg. It's not working, help!

Also, once a week I bang my knee into my rock-hard desk, leaving me holding it and cursing, in great pain. I would like to know if this is going to have a permanent effect.

It has to feel just right or I will keep tipping back till it does.

Then I'm fine, and can sit normally until the next tipping urge strikes. Weird, huh?
Wow, me too. I did that a lot in school since the chairs are light and good for tipping. Fell down in the middle of class too ^^;;; I used to be able to balance on the two legs but I haven't done that in awhile. Nowadays, the chairs I have are too heavy though =(

I'm parked on one of those kneely-chairs that are supposed to be so good for your back. Well, it is wonderful for the lower back -- but with lengthy use it seems to be doing nasty things to the nerves of my legs, which have gone to chronic discomfort. I'm buying a happy back at the price of unhappy legs. I've taken to putting my feet flat on the floor instead of the knees to the knee cushion, which seems to help.
