Upper back pain relief: How good posture can help

  • March 20, 2023

As anyone who has ever experienced back pain knows, it can be a debilitating and frustrating experience. Fortunately, much of the back pain that people experience is preventable and can be avoided by engaging in healthy lifestyle habits and practicing good posture. Poor posture is one of the most common causes of upper back pain, and it can significantly impair a person’s quality of life.

Good posture is essential for maintaining health and avoiding back pain. Poor posture places unnecessary strain on the muscles, ligaments, and joints in the upper back, leading to muscle tension and overstretching that can cause pain. Poor posture can also lead to disc herniation, joint degeneration, spondylolisthesis, and other structural changes that can result in upper back pain.

In addition to practicing good posture, it is important to engage in other healthy lifestyle habits that can help to reduce the risk of back pain. Regular exercise is essential for maintaining an optimal level of physical fitness, and it can help to strengthen the weakened muscles from poor posture and reduce the risk of injury. Additionally, engaging in activities such as yoga and stretching can help to improve posture and reduce the risk of back pain.



The key to avoiding back pain is to practice good posture.

Doing so will help to ensure that the spine is properly aligned, and that the muscles and ligaments in the back are not overstretched or strained and remain balanced. It’s important to stand up straight and keep your shoulders back, and to ensure that you don’t slouch when sitting. But many of us have to sit every day for work and really struggle with sitting well for 8–10-hour days.

Why is it so hard to sit in good posture?

We struggle with sitting well because most chairs don’t support the body in the right places. The key to sitting in good posture and preventing upper back pain is supporting the pelvis in a neutral position. The angle of the pelvis determines the position of the spine. When we roll our pelvis back, the spine follows into a “C” curve, which can decrease disc space and result in disc herniation, degeneration, or spondylolisthesis over time. A chair that can support the pelvis in a neutral position, resulting in a neutral “S” shaped spine, will protect the discs from these conditions and promote muscle balance to protect the spine.

What is the solution?

Anthros is the only chair with an independently adjustable two-part back system. The low back pad supports the pelvis in a neutral position which brings the spine into an upright position, then the upper back pad provides thoracic support. This unique back system offers the most effortless sit and may significantly reduce the risk of conditions causing upper back pain.



If you are looking to improve posture while sitting, look no further than Anthros.

Anthros is the only chair in the world that is guaranteed to improve posture or your money back. The science-backed, patented design is registered with the FDA as a posture-improving chair and is proven to have the lowest pressure (most comfortable) cushion on the planet (verified by university testing).
