Because exercise balls don’t have back rests they force someone sitting on them to sit up tall and this builds and strengthens core muscles and helps alleviate back pain. Sitting on an office chair for long stretches of time makes one to slump and stay in one position for long, so the alternative of using an exercise ball helps reduce the damage that results from sitting in a chair for long hours.
