Restore Your Natural Sitting and Standing Posture and Get Rid of Back and Neck Pain

  • SumoMe

Some ideas on why our backs hurt and some great and easy tips on how to help. Details from Lifehacker:

Not only are we killing ourselves by sitting all day, we’re probably sitting all wrong. Esther Gokhale, who has studied the posture of people in less industrialized places (where back pain is virtually unknown), shows us in this video what natural (“primal”) posture looks like for standing and sitting.

Essentially, you want to have a “ducky butt, not tucky butt,” she says in a profile of her work on SF Gate. Instead of tucking your tailbone in, stick your butt out, because good posture relies much on the pelvis.

If you don’t have time for the entire video, go to the 4:25 mark to see a sitting exercise that will help you get back into your primal posture.
