After suffering from nerve pain from a bulging disk and arthritis in my 
back, I recently bought a Leap 2 chair by Steelcase.  It's not cheap but 
has very aggressive and fully adjustable lumbar support, which was my 
particular need.  Whatever you do, I urge you to go to a large store 
specializing in chairs and beds (we have a chain of what are called 
Healthy Back Stores in our area), and try out everything they have 
before buying.  You'll probably want to buy on the Internet, though - 
prices tend to vary a lot between sellers.  Beware of refurbished chairs 
- and whatever warranty they may have (or not).
