Most of us lead largely sedentary lives. We sit for many hours each day - in the office, in the car or public transport, in the course of our meals, in front of the TV or reading, in study, or just sitting down for a cup of tea and chat.
If you suffer from low back, upper back, neck or shoulder pain, not to mention headache, chances are that your chair can take the blame. This informative book will ensure you know how to recognise and choose a good chair, and that you understand how to adjust it to suit your own physique and work requirements.
Through simple descriptions of the function and requirements of the human frame, you'll see how a properly designed ergonomic chair will help to achieve the sitting postures that are kind to muscles, ligaments, joints and discs. There are also simple exercises (some of which can be performed unobtrusively while seated behind a desk or steering wheel) to nourish discs, decrease tissue and muscle stress and reverse the effects of sustained sitting.
This book will provide reliable, professional guidance to anyone whose back or shoulders or neck protest after sitting. It should be standard equipment for all purchasing officers charged with providing seating for the desk-bound, from managing directors to school students.
