Since you were in kindergarten, parents, and teachers have admonished you to sit up directly. Now groundbreaking research study recommends their guidance may have been off base. A current research study of 22 healthy male and female topics measures strain on the spine using an upright MRI machine. Topics were scanned in three sitting positions (forward-leaning, 90 degrees, and 135 degrees), and the results were compared versus the most comfortable vertebral position - resting.
The forward-leaning and upright postures "reverse the natural curvature of the spine and put a lot of pf pressure on it." As an outcome, the internal back disks squeeze together and lose water, which might cause long-term back problems. Nevertheless, sitting at a reclined position triggered disks to move the least, confirming that it's the very best sitting posture for a healthy back.
Seat cushions and seat memory foams can help you. But you can't ergonomically modify your office chair, specialists suggest stretching regularly.
