A girl at work uses one. Personally I think it's just a giant distraction in the office.
So I started doing this about 6 months back but had to stop due to bring moved to a different department. But want to go back to it. It seemed to be working, I felt my lower back getting stronger. I started of with a few hours each day and worked my wY up to a full day. I plans to build my desk up to adjust to a standing or sitting desk. So I can go back and forth. Anyone else do anything like this. I need to go to the ball in the stand due to aluminum shavings on the ground now.

Why would it be a disruption in the office? Only a few people asked me about it and it was more of is it working? I didn't play around with it, I just sit in it then roll it under my desk so it doesn't roll out and around.
I've done it in the past, but as it is I only get a reprieve to sit at my job on rare occasion while doing notes for the day so not worth it for me. If I were sitting 8+ hours though I would consider it again. In the long run your best off to incorporate more mini-breaks where you stand up and move around. Sitting on a physioball is probably better than sitting in a chair BUT its still sitting.
That makes total sense, since I am not in my 20's nor a girl in tight pants I won't have that kind if attention. We had someone in a kilt the other day at work. Maybe if I wore that I would get done attention on the ball then.

Besides it's discrimination against a persons heritage. I didn't think that would be allowed...
Anyway back to the ball thing, my therapist thinks it's a brilliant solution. For me it causes more back issues than it solves but I'm sure that it helps quite a bit of people
My story, My thought....
It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!
My chiropractor gifted one to me and told me to use it at home, but I think I might bring it in to work. The only problem is it would be too low for me to really type comfortably at my desk. I definitely feel a difference when I've been using the ball for an hour or two everyday, at home.
