New York-based sports chiropractor Leon Aibinder, D.C., C.C.S.P. has some important posture tips on how to sit correctly while at work.
“Always keep your elbows resting on the chair’s armrests and your wrists over the keyboard—not cocked outward like Spider- Man shooting his web.”
“Your knees should be at about 90 degrees. This is the best position to ensure no slumping or slouching—both will strain your back muscles.”
“Feet need to be either flat on the ground or on a foot stool. Apply a light pressure into the ground—it activates your core.”
Get up and stand or walk for 10 minutes to fight sitting’s harmful effects.
