Posture of the lower back while sitting at a desk is very important to help reduce the risks of developing musculoskeletal issues leading to acute or chronic low back pain, limited mobility, or nerve impingement. Ideally your low back should be relaxed and support the natural forward curve. Most people slouch forward starting at the head and neck, then moving down to the upper portion of the back. Eventually this affects the low back and the upper spine slouch becomes a whole spine curve forward. The low back has a “lordosis” which means it naturally curves toward the front of your body. When we slouch forward we straighten that curve and put stress on the surrounding muscles as well as the ligaments and capsules around the joints.
The low back should also not be pushed too far forward, in cases where you may be using a lumbar support device in your chair. This makes that forward curve of the spine even bigger and may lead to compression of the joints of the spine causing a “facet syndrome” which may lead to radiating pain.
Your chair should support your upper back as well and allow you to get in the best position to allow your spine to be straight and comfortable.
Now it’s time to analyze your shoulder posture.
This is about awareness and there are no wrong answers.
