Prolonged periods of time spent sitting in a car can be painful, especially for back-pain-sufferers.
Your posture plays an important role in your overall health.
Poor posture leads to chronic strain and discomfort. “Lower crossed syndrome” is poor posture that results from excessive tightness in your lower back and hip flexor muscles with weakness in your abdominal and buttock muscles.
Patients with lower crossed syndrome often have a “sway back.”
Patients who sit for prolonged periods of time are at greater risk of lower crossed syndrome.
This postural problem commonly leads to painful conditions involving the back or hips. Successful treatment of lower cross syndrome involves stretching excessively tight muscles, strengthening weak muscles, taking frequent breaks from sitting, and modifying your workstation to be more user friendly.
