Kathy’s Tips – Sitting Posture

Proper way of Sitting at Desk while working

Kathy Howell PT, OCS, CFMT has over 25 years of experience as a physical therapist and uses a combination of manual therapy, exercise prescription, movement analysis and education in body mechanics to help her patients achieve their goals.  She is an Orthopedic Certified Specialist nationally and she is a Certified Functional Manual Therapist from the Institute of Physical Art.  In this video, Kathy reviews the best posture for sitting.  Even though standing is a healthier habit for work, sometimes sitting can not be avoided.  And, sitting on an unsupported surface gives you the best chance to sit up correctly.  Try to have your hips slightly higher than your knees, sit more towards to edge of the chair with your feet hip distance apart, place your pelvis in neutral, center your rib cage over your pelvis, slightly incline your body forward from the hips, bring your shoulders back and tuck your chin slightly to center you head directly above your body.  Watch this video for a demonstration of how it can be done.  If you have questions for Kathy or are interested in an appointment with her, you can contact her directly.
