Having correct posture while sitting for long periods at a desk, in a car, or even at home, can help prevent pain in many areas. Using a seat cushion can help improve posture and protect areas of the body while sitting.

To help relieve pain while sitting and to improve your sitting posture, make sure your hips and knees are at about a 90 degree angle. This is allows you to have good posture and distribute the weight evenly throughout your body.

Also, when you are sitting, you want to keep your feet flat on the floor. If you are shorter, you can use a stool or box to make sure your feet aren't dangling down.

You also want to have a good neutral position in your low back area. Using a seat cushion, like the Socket Seat Cushion from Aylio that I’m using in the video, is a great way to have support in your spine and keep you in an upright position. Using a cushion is an easy way to make sure your back gets the support it needs while maintaining correct sitting posture.

The Socket Seat Cushion also has an opening to take pressure off your coccyx or tailbone, and it has two holes to take pressure off your Ischial tuberosities, or your sit bones.
