Desk Chair Setup

Desk Chair Setup 300 225 Clifton Hill Physiotherapy Clifton Hill Physiotherapy

Having your office chair well set up is important to keep your spine happy.

The basic features of a good office chair are :


  • Adjust chair height keeping your knees level or just below hip height with your feet flat on the floor.
  • If your seat has a pelvic tilt, set to a slight forward incline promoting  a natural inward curvature of your lower.
  • Move the lumbar support so that it fits snuggly into the curve of your lower back.
  • Avoid prolonged sitting by regularly getting up to move around and readjust your posture
  • Sneak in a few stretches when you grab that coffee

You do not need to be in in one set posture for prolonged periods. The key is to have a good set up for you, but to keep moving regularly.

Remember your spine will be thankful when you keep your supportive postural muscles strong with regular exercise.
