Sitting Correctly at School

chairToday, children sit in their school chairs for hours and hours each day. This should be cause for concern for parents and teachers, as children aren’t necessarily learning how to sit correctly. And this can have an impact on their bodies and their health.

Slouching in your chair at school is very bad for your back. It distorts your spine into a “C” shape that can be unhealthy for you and your back. This puts pressure on your intervertebral discs and this can contribute to back pain and to discomfort.

What’s the way to sit better? First, we need to teach students to sit back in their chairs. Their backs should make full contact with the backrest. This supports your spine and helps children to receive the full benefits of the work chair. It’s important, as well, to have the right type of chair to help with ergonomics.
