Sit Up Straight

A few weeks ago I received a note from out of the blue from a bloke asking if I could help fix his crook back.

Here in Canberra (Australia's national capital) I run the crook back clinic where people come to learn what the likely cause of their dysfunction is and the exercises then need to do to fix it up.

The cause is usually tight calf and buttock muscles and a body that's twisted, weak and tight.
The letter writer started off by saying he thought that sitting down was the cause of his crook back.

He's not wrong. It's major cause.
Anyway, top cut a long story short I told him to make sure he's sitting up straight at his desk with the back of the chair pressing in up under his shoulder blades and the desk pushing in to his abdomen. In that position he'd be locked in and sitting up straight.
