Rocking chairs were probably invented in the early 1700's. That is about all we know. They probably were not invented by Benjamin Franklin--although he did invent a system whereby a fan is powered by the rocker. Rockers may have appeared in France before they did in America but nobody is really sure.

Which rocker is best for a bad back?

Research indicates that the real benefit in relieving lower back pain comes not from the design of the chair but from the fact that the spinal cord can only work in one direction at a time. When the brain is sending motor impulses down the spinal cord to make the legs rock the chair, pain impulses from the back are blocked, they are prevented from reaching the brain which lets the muscles in the lower back relax. This effect is accomplished with any rocking chair or glider and not by typical recliners or fancy orthopedic or massage chairs.
