People often have bad posture when they are working at a desk or gaming all day. This video will show you some great tips on what to look for in a chair to give you the best sitting posture to help reduce neck and back pain.

For this demo, I’m using the Anthros Chair. It has a lot of the features I’ll be talking about that allow you to easily adjust it to your particular needs.

The first one is to have a good neutral position in your low back area. When you adjust the pelvis, it will help put the whole spine in a neutral position. Having a chair that can adjust your pelvis into a neutral position is important.

Second is having a good neck position to reduce forward neck posture. Having a chair with a back system you can adjust in more than one spot will also help to reduce the want or need to lean forward which can cause neck pain and tight shoulders.

The third tip is to have good cushion support to help reduce pressure points, like at your IT bones. This can help prevent leg pain and nerve pain that might radiate down the leg.

The next 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. Finding a chair that has adjustable arms in all directions will help take stress off those areas.

Finally, try to keep your feet flat. Make sure your hips and knees are at about a 90 degree angle. This allows you to have good posture and distribute the weight evenly through out your body. If you are shorter or if you need to raise your chair to fit the height of your desk, you can use a stool or box to make sure your feet aren’t dangling down.
