Dr David Shahar is our chiropractor here at Health Hub Doctors Morayfield who is committed to helping patients with their posture.
Healthier standing, sitting and sleeping habits will certainly reduce neck, head and back ache, pinched nerves, arm and shoulder pain, insomnia and mental fatigue. It’s that simple!
When resting your back against a car seat, in front of the television, at your desk or at school, remember to perform the ManubriumLift®.
Make sure your buttocks touch the back of your chair, as that will help to shift your head back over your shoulders. A lumbar roll can be used to help you maintain the normal curves in your back.
Bend your knees at a right angle (use a foot rest or stool if necessary). Keep your feet flat on the floor and try not to cross your legs.
When sitting forward while eating, at your computer or when writing, it is good to tip your seat down slightly at the front if possible, or use a sacral block (chair wedge) to prevent your pelvis from tipping back, which causes slouching.
“Blocking” your pelvis will make it easier and more comfortable to maintain an upright position.
Here’s to your good posture!
