The Perfect Sitting Posture For ANY CHAIR or DESK
We all understand the importance of good sitting posture. Yet how many of us actually take the time to try and optimize our sitting habits consistently throughout the day?
Based on what I find clinically, the quality of our spinal shapes – most commonly when sitting, has such a strong link to a raft of everyday musculoskeletal aches, pains, and injuries. The most common are:
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Upper back pain
- Low back pain
- Hip pain
- SIJ pain
- Knee pain
So it goes without saying that we need to practice perfect sitting posture as much as humanly possible if we want to allow our spine to function normally and decrease our chances of having these issues.
But do you actually know how to sit correctly? Sure, it sounds simple. But where does your head need to be? What’s best for your shoulders? What changes when your seat is too high? What if it angles backward? What if you’re on a laptop vs a desktop? What if you’re sitting up in bed at night? What if you play guitar or drive all day? What needs to change as your environment does?
Well, the answer is actually insanely simple. Nothing.
To clarify, nothing about YOU should change. After all, it’s the same body you use for each and every shape. So the key here is that by understanding how to best position YOUR body first (before your butt even touches the seat) you will have the basis for perfect sitting posture in any seat, at any desk, in any car, or in ANY situation you find yourself in day-to-day.
In this video, I discuss the importance of this idea and demonstrate how to find your perfect sitting posture. More importantly, I show how to use this information in real-time to your advantage by optimizing what’s around you.
Once you have a firm sense of where you need to be, it then becomes a matter of moulding your environment to suit YOU, rather than the other way around.
This is a must-watch for anyone suffering from the above musculoskeletal issues or just wanting a body that performs or functions better!
