In brief: No
Roller chairs are not bad for low back pain though i'm not sure they do any good, either.

In brief: Depends
If you mean a chair on wheels, no.
Chairs do vary in how comfortable they are, so pick one that is correct in height for you, gives good support, and is comfortable. If you mean chairs that use roller to massage your back, the answer is probably not, unless your tissues are very sensitive to pressure, you have had recent trauma to the area, or a lot of force is used. Try before you buy.
