Way To Sit To Avoid Back Pain

Yes, sitting properly is key to avoiding lower and mid-back pain. When your attention span is consumed with the gifts from modern technology – PCs, laptops, mobile devices, high-definition TV – you spend a significant portion of your time sitting for long periods of time. These technological tools are today’s main contributors to a person’s sedate lifestyle and resulting back pain.

Sitting for long periods of time with your head, neck, shoulders, and back leaning forward improperly leads to pain. When this happens, postures are disabled and weight is gained, resulting in back pain and joint problems.

Improvement to the Way You Sit

First, avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time – your body is built to move – get up every 20 to 30 minutes and do some stretching. Your body will tell you where it needs relief.

When re-sitting down, it is advisable to:

  • Realign your body’s core
  • Make sure your feet are planted flat on the floor in front of you
  • Tighten your pelvic and stomach muscles to hold your core steady
  • Become aware of and adjust your improper sitting position every 20 minutes
