  1. Lower Back Pain? Get Your Sitting Position Right! Do you suffer from chronic back pain? Or are you someone who has been suffering a wriggling back pain in the recent past? Whichever scenario you fit in, your spine alignment and overall body posture deserve attention at all times. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke confirmed recently that four out of five adults experience low back pain at some point in their lives. That’s about 80% of adults across age, gender, race etc. There are multiple factors that contribute to lower back pains, some initiates from medical conditions, others purely by lifestyle. A common reason, however, is when your spine isn’t aligned from long hours of sitting. There are plenty of measures like getting a back pillow that can alleviate this pain offering optimal back support.

All of these add immense pressure to the spine leading to pain and other issues. Here are some types of lower back pain that can arise from sitting long hours: Sciatica Herniated disc Muscle strain Degenerative disc disease Spinal Stenosis Posture- The Key Your posture is absolutely key to spinal health. Even if your back pain isn’t directly due to poor posture, it can be made much worse from sitting long hours in an awkward position.
