When you are suffering from pain in your lower back, daily tasks can be excruciating. Simply standing or sitting is, in many people’s cases, no exception. With this in mind, it is important to be aware of your standing and sitting posture, and how it might be affecting your lower back when you are feeling pain.
While you stand, you can take some of the pressure off of your lower spine by placing one of your feet slightly in front of the other and allowing your knees to bend slightly. When you are sitting, try positioning your chair so that your knees are slightly higher than the level of your hips; this provides your lower back with more support.
You can talk to our Edmonds chiropractic clinic for additional information on living with lower back pain.
