Health Tip: Support Your Back While Sitting

Use a pillow or rolled towel
(HealthDay News) -- When you sit at a desk for hours on end, your back may complain at the end of a long day.
The American Council on Exercise offers this advice for supporting your back while you sit:
Place a small pillow or rolled towel in your seat for support, or use a seat designed with back support. Sit up straight and avoid leaning. If you do lean, do so from the hips. Make sure your chair isn't lacking in sufficient support. Invest in a good-quality swivel chair that keeps you from having to twist and turn. Other features should include an adjustable seat, arm rests and back rest.
