It could also be alleviated by adjusting the seat forward and/or the steering wheel toward you.

I have a herniated disc. I know what I'm talking about
Yes, the clutch will feel stiffer the more you tilt the base of your seat. Unfortunately, I always found that the less seat base tilt I used, the more pain I suffered in the undersides of my thighs. Therefore I always tilt the seat base to its max position. But this does make the clutch feel significantly stiffer. yet another reason why I switched to an auto!

EDIT: oops, just read you've not got sport seats. Sorry.
