Re: Back Problems

Note that my strategy is not merely sitting with better posture. You need to rotate through the greatest variety of postures available. If you could find a way to stand and buy one of those seiza chairs, you could spend 1/3 of the time in each reduce your overall sitting time to only 1/3 its current level, then you could sit up straight half the remaining time and get it down to 1/6th. I suspect that merely sticking with the chair and trying to sit up straight will realistically only cut your exposure by maybe 1/4. If you are extremely tenacious about correcting your posture, maybe more, but too much and you will develop new pain patterns from overusing new posture muscles.
