Why sitting is so bad for your back and what to do about it

In today’s world, many people sit all day, often at a computer. This can be awful for your back. I just found this fabulous blog at Healing Yew about why, with tips for preventing back pain when you have to sit all day. I added a few comments at the bottom of her page on things I have also found to help.

And then there is Coach Jenny’s marvelous idea about walking instead of sitting still here. I personally want to find myself a treadmill and revamp my workspace so I don’t sit at all! I love this.
