Health Tip: Support Your Back While Sitting04/30/13
(HealthDay News) -- When you sit at a desk for hours on end,
your back may complain at the end of a long day.
The American Council on Exercise offers this advice for
supporting your back while you sit:
- Place a small pillow or rolled towel in your seat for support,
or use a seat designed with back support.
- Sit up straight and avoid leaning. If you do lean, do so from
- Make sure your chair isn't lacking in sufficient support.
- Invest in a good-quality swivel chair that keeps you from
having to twist and turn. Other features should include an
adjustable seat, arm rests and back rest.
