Having correct sitting posture when you sit for long periods at a desk, in your car, or even at home, can help eliminate pain in many areas. Here are 5 proper sitting posture tips to help prevent pain.
The first sitting posture tip is to 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 through out your body.
The second way to correct your sitting posture is to keep your feet flat. If you are shorter, you can use a stool or box to make sure your feet aren’t dangling down.
The third one is to have a good neutral position in your low back area. Using a back cushion, like the Yokaro back cushion, is a great way to have support in your spine and keep you in an upright position. Using the Yokaro back cushion is an easy way to make sure your back gets the support it needs while maintaining correct sitting posture.
The fourth posture tip is to have your hands, wrists, and elbows in a comfortable position. Having them too low or too high can cause pain in all those areas including your shoulders.
Finally, having a good neck position is one of the most important ways to have correct sitting posture. Making sure that your monitor is at eye height is the best way to do that. You can also do chin tucks through out the day to help reset your neck muscles.
