OT - Larry´s Back and everybody´s Back
- Larry mentioned that he was out with back pain, and I
would like to caution all of you that use computers
while in a SEATED position. The pressure in the
lumbar spine is 100 psi standing, as opposed to 300
psi seated. This has to do with the unequal loading
that occurs from the legs bent with the stomach slack.
Over my three decade architectural career, and
currently as an Iyengar yoga teacher, I have found it
helps everybody to stop sitting. It is worthwhile to
change furniture, eliminate the chair, raise the
computer on a table top, preferably at eye level, with
the keyboard at about kitchen counter height.
If you rarely sit, your back will be perfect. More
details later about alternative stools for your feet,
not your seat. If this is toooooo off topic, complain
but from a standing position, OK?
