There is no denying it – we live in a ‘sitting’ society. With so many chair styles, from straight backed to saddle to ergonomic, it’s hard to choose the one that’s best for you. Do you need lumbar support or mid-spine support? Is your neck bothering you or do your feet dangle?
So many different chairs to to sit in, yet each body can illustrate poor posture in any number of combinations. Most notably, the forward head position in relation to the spine and ribs is cause for concern whether the chair is hardback or ergonomic.
What you don’t know *can* hurt you. No matter what type of chair you choose to sit in your muscle strength (or weakness) ultimately dictates your body alignment. And it’s your alignment, not the chair, that determines symptoms: Whether you feel ease or pain, both are ‘posture’ based.
Discover your sitting patterns. Learn how to sit better and what constitutes a good sit (versus a bad sit) in the 21 Day Static Movement Event beginning January 6.
