No magic pill for this, but " Hylands leg cramps" helps. Magnessium glycinate helps too, but you will get sleepy.
Ive always looked for jobs that have a lot of "position freedom" for lack of a better term. I can stand a long time , sitting feels good till I need to get up from more than 1 hr. We need to move as sitting and standing for lengthy times are bad for many people.
I would suggest (repeating my self again) a foam roller and LaCross ball muscle release in the AM. Use before work, on quads, glutes and hamstrings, more pressure the better. This helps manage. All those muscles contribute to lower back, leg and hip tension. The upper IT band area (right under the hip bone sticking out) gets super tight and is ignored, its only 1/2 thick, but a very big deal with back/hip pain.
The muscle area when sitting that forms a 90 degree corner (hip and quad junction) get tight and will send refered pain to the lower back. A lacross ball on the floor here works wonders. You can also do a deep thumb massage there if you have some privacy at your desk.
All this is on u-tube. If you look up hip muscle image on google, then look to release that muscle on you tube- you can make some tension go away. The more you do this (several times daily), the more likely a positive pattern will reset your muscles.
If done before bed, this makes the next morning/day more comfy .
