A yoga ball can successfully replace the office chair - article by Dr. Codruta Cioponea, published by Click Sanatate
Solutions for back pain
First of all it is mandatory to have an ergonomic, flexible office chair with adjustable seat and back, and its movement is in sync with the natural movement of the body. Basically, the chair has to move constantly, holding your body in a dynamic support. In such a chair, the back should be straight, glued to the back of the chair, the soles on the floor, the angle of the hips and knees 90 degrees, the head forward, never bent more than 10 degrees, and the monitor should be in front of the eyes .
You didn't have time to buy such a chair (which, in fact, must be tested in the store, not bought online)? Then you can sit on a yoga ball (it can be easier to order from the internet if you don't have one). "It is much better than any fixed chair in the kitchen or living room. It warns you when you are no longer comfortable and you have to change your position, you can make lateral movements, you can keep your back straight. In this way, you activate the deep paravertebral musculature and prevent the risk of back pain ”, adds Dr. Codruta Cioponea, doctor at Quantica 720. Attention! These balls are also on sizes (S, M, L), adapted to height. When sitting on them, the soles should be relaxed on the floor, with a knee angle of 90 degrees.
