This is a very short article but it could make a massive difference.
The main thing with sitting is that your back is in a rounded or flexed position. This puts too much pressure on the ligaments, joints, or disks of your back. If you cannot avoid sitting for long periods, then the best approach is to try to prevent your back going into this position in the first place. If you can keep your back in a neutral position, then none of the structures we talked about will be over worked or strained.
Action: Get a rolled up towel and put it in the small of your back when sitting in the car or at your desk. This should stop your back going into this rounded position. Try this for two weeks and you will see big improvements in your back pain.
