SITTING

  • Choose a chair that is firm enough to support you comfortably, and don’t slouch!
  • Sit with your feet flat on the floor or on a low footstool so that your knees are slightly higher than your hips. Sit firmly against the back of the chair.
  • Most recliner chairs don’t bend where you do; choose a rocker instead.
  • Avoid crossing your legs at the knees, which can aggravate existing back conditions and interfere with circulation to your lower limbs.
