Quick and Easy Guide to Perfect Posture

Sitting with anything less than great posture is bad for your back, neck, spine, and in some cases even your hips and joints. Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center provides a quick guide to ensure you're sitting with correct posture.

1.) Sit with Shoulders Back

Sit with your shoulders aimed back, with your shoulder blades flexing a bit inward instead of sitting with your shoulders hunched forward, which is terrible for your back and your neck.

2.) Both Feet on the Ground

Try to sit square in your chair with both feet evenly on the ground to ensure even weight distribution. You'll want your knees to rest slightly below your hips.

3.) Sit with Your Back Straight, Looking Straight Ahead

Obviously you'll want to sit with your back straight and with your head facing straight forward, especially if you sit for long periods in front of a computer screen.

It's a great practice to switch it up at work, too. Make sure you stand and stretch to get some variety in your day and to give your back, neck, and joints relief from sitting in a single position for long periods of time. You can also invest in accessories for your work area, like footpads and elevating desk converters that your back, neck, feet, and joints will surely thank you for.

If you experience lingering back pain even while practicing perfect posture, contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation. We'll get to the bottom of the issue.
