Your Easy Chair May Be Causing Your Back Pain

While it may feel good to sink into a soft easy chair or sofa, it’s actually hard on the muscles in your back.

When you sit in a hard chair, your back muscles are supported, so they relax. In a soft chair, they must stay contracted to maintain your posture.

If you’re going to stretch out in a chair to watch TV or read a book, make sure you have good lumbar support.

Standing for 1-2 minutes for every 20 minutes in the chair will also help give your back muscles a break.
