Who doesn't? Me, for a start.

I've honestly never understood the standing desk thing. I mean if it alleviates back pain or just makes you happy, sure. Why not?

It's not a given that everyone suffers back or neck pain from sitting though.

sample size of one, but I have suffered lower back pain for about 15 years. It is always there, but worse some times than others. When it is bad, I cannot sit in the chair for more than a couple of minutes. Standing at the desk (well a box on a desk that my laptop goes on) the pain is reduced so can at least get a days work done.

Raises hand, another one who's back doesn't hurt while sitting.
