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!!!!
Calories? Aren't that those little creatures that live in my closet and shrink my clothes at night?AN EARTH WARRIOR!!!!
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.
