We’ve got your Back when it comes to protecting your back! Proper alignment requires active attention and knowledge, and a strong core. Buying the right chair is only part of the solution. A good rule of thumb is that if your head is forward and/or your back is rounded, you are definitely putting unhealthy strain on your body and back and no chair is going to save you. Here are some quick tips: Always sit with your back as straight as possible and use a pillow if you need low back support. Try to avoid slouching your shoulders or relying on your chair’s backrest for support. To avoid muscle tightness or tension, practice active sitting by making small movements in your chair all day long. And, don’t forget to take frequent breaks by standing and walking around.
