When you sit at a desk for hours on end, your back may complain at the end of a long day.
The American Council on Exercise offers this advice for supporting your back while you sit:
- Place a small pillow or rolled towel in your seat for support, or use a seat designed with back support.
- Sit up straight and avoid leaning. If you do lean, do so from the hips.
- Make sure your chair isn't lacking in sufficient support.
- Invest in a good-quality swivel chair that keeps you from having to twist and turn. Other features should include an adjustable seat, arm rests and back rest.
