My parents recently bought one and they reckon they sleep much better on it.
Lolz...you now how much those cost. It'll put a big dent on my wallet. But I did look into it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for the tip.

Yah first you should get an Obus foam for the lumbar region for your seat unless it's a super ergonomical chair. It'll
help with some support, but won't alleviate the problem.
I've bought the most expensive office executive chairs at Staples and they're all garbage. Then I decided to look up a specialty store and was blown away on the pricing of the chairs; $1k+. I was told that these are the same ones air traffic controllers use. I might actually get one down the line. In fact I'd suggest you ask your office to invest in some. More comfort is conducive to higher productivity.
This little roller will relieve at least 50% of the tension if not more. In reality it's the gluteal muscles that tighten up and strains the lower back.
1.) stretching out the gluteal muscles
2.) rolling over the gluteal muscles, hips on the foam for at least 30 minutes to an hour while watching TV.
3.) Then roll over your back; lower, mid, upper portion.
A bunch of instructional Youtube videos on this.
You will feel the difference! Felt like this $20 investment saved me hundreds if not thousands.
