WHEN SITTING
Page 11
 

ACTION GOAL #3:  Adjust the height of the back of the chair so that the curve of the back of the chair fits into the deepest part of the curve in your lower back.


IF YOU SEE THIS...   TRY THIS...  
The curve in the chair back does not fit into your lower back.  

Reach back to feel the curve in your lower back. Then raise or lower the chair back until it fits into the curve of your lower back.

   
    Use another chair that can be adjusted to fit your lower back.*

* Select a chair that fits and is comfortable. Be sure that the chair provides upper and lower back support. Ask for a demonstration of the adjustment features of the chair.
