1. Stand with the back of your head against a wall
2. Place your heels six inches away from the wall with your buttocks and shoulders touching the wall
3. There should be less than two inches between your neck and the small of your back and the wall
4. A larger gap indicates poor posture and a curving spine, which can make your lower back hurt when sitting
We recommend making your posture an intrinsic part of your everyday thinking, so you are always aware of how to limit any backache and pains caused by poor posture.
