Are you leaning forward to see your computer screen? Bending your neck down to look at your phone? Bending your neck forward to read your book? Driving with your head off the headrest? These are all positions that can leave your spine prone to injury and ever worsening neck pain!

We all have to sit, working in front of laptop screens for extended periods of time. All this while, maintaining good posture is key! Slouching or leaning to one side, even if these positions make the pain less, are bad habits that ultimately worsen back pain.

Below are some time tested tips to assume and maintain a good posture during day to day routine activities!

  • We recommend sitting in a chair with good low back support.
  • If sitting for a long time, you should rest your feet on a low stool.
  • Keep switching sitting positions and get up and walk around a bit throughout the day.
  • Sit back in your chair. Else, support your low back with a lumbar roll, rolled towel, or small pillow.
  • Don’t lean forward and sit on the edge of your chair. This will bend your low back to arch, your head to drop forward, and your shoulders to round. Very Poor Posture!
  • Drop your shoulders and keep them relaxed, keeping your arms close to your sides. Make sure your elbows are bent 90 degrees.
  • Stretch the top of your head toward the ceiling, and tuck your chin in slightly.
  • Keep your upper back and neck comfortably straight by rolling your shoulders back and tucking in your tummy just a little.
  • Place your feet flat on the floor, pointing them forward so your knees are level with your hips. If necessary, support your feet with a footstool or other support.
  • In case you can’t avoid stooping or bending over, make sure to keep your knees bent and your back straight.

  • Lifting objects with a rounded back can put unwanted pressure on the vertebral discs (bones in the spinal column) and potentially injure your low back. Keeping the body upright, maintaining a natural lumbar curve, is ideal when lifting.
  • Position yourself as close to the object as possible, so that you are more stable.
  • Keep your feet shoulder width apart to create a solid base of support.
  • Always bend at the knees, tighten your “abdominals, and lift with your legs.

Good posture allows your spine to be aligned and balanced. You can breathe deeply, because your lungs have more space to expand and contract. Not only will you feel more energized and less worn down, but you’ll also look good and be twice as likely to smile.

The above adjustments, combined with breaks, may reduce the risk of injury and help you get into proper posture!
