Sitting position errors can cause back pain to scoliosis pain which is a disorder of the spine.
Launching from Bright Side, consider the things you should pay attention to when sitting to keep your posture good.
1. Check the suitability of the bench with your posture
You should choose a bench that can be set in height, and has a seat backrest that can be adjusted to your needs.
Some things that also need to be considered is, choose a chair that is wider than the waist so that the thighs have a fairly wide space when moving.
Also make sure there is at least a gap between the edge of the chair and the back of the knee at least 0.5 inches.
2. Check the waist brace on the chair
A good chair for your body is a chair that has a waist support that resembles the shape of a bone, which is S-shaped. It is useful to support the waist and back.
You can make your own waist brace if you feel discomfort in the waist position, namely by slipping a roll of towels or pillows at the back of the waist.
3. Pay attention to how to sit
Make sure that your feet stay straight on the floor when sitting. Avoid crossing your legs because it can reduce blood flow and cause muscle pain. If the foot cannot touch the floor, use sandals to elevate the position of the soles of the feet.
4. Pay attention to the angle when sitting
When sitting, make sure your knees and elbows are bent to a 90-degree angle. Then, the waist can be slightly tilted forward to make room for the back.
If you work on a laptop, set the screen parallel to the eyes to avoid straining the neck and eyes. In addition, the keyboard should also be placed about 4 to 6 inches from the edge of the table so that the wrist has room to rest.
5. Stand up occasionally
Do not forget to stand occasionally so that blood flow remains smooth so that you avoid muscle pain. If necessary, you can set an alarm every 30 minutes to alert your standing.
