    Thanks for the interesting article. This is something that a LOT of people go through at some point in their lives.

    I used to have bad lower back pain at times myself and sitting too long was the reason. I hear that sitting is the new smoking.

    Love the article and the products from Amazon. I will look into them. Thanks.

    • I’m glad that you found this post useful, John. And I’m happier that you no longer experiencing bad lower back pain. Yes, you should not sit too long in the same position. You should stand up every 15 to 20 minutes and move around. On the other hand, a some people have to do a lot of reading from their desk and want to know the best way to minimize pain. I wrote the following post that you might find useful:

      Thanks for checking in.

  2. Hahahahaha! Thank you for the comic break! ?

    To be honest, I was confused with all the scientific words and terms used. E.g. Gluteus maximus, iliopsoas, thoracolumbar, and all the terms used in the symptoms section. I could not understand what these terms are referring to. Which part of the body are these?

    Thankfully, you gave the comic break, and that eased the tension. It was hilarious! Also, the videos were really helpful.

    Just a gentle suggestion, would it be possible to show what these scientific or biology terms mean? It would help someone like me.

    Nice info.I agree with Tim about using a glossary for us non-science type. That said, I have heard of Lower-Cross Syndrome and I learned a lot from your post. Just one question about exercising to manage LCS. I know that any kind of core-strengthening exercise will help LCS. I like to do the plank. How long should I hold so it can work?

    • Thanks for the question, Joel.
      I’m a big fan of the plank myself. I know that some exercise gurus don’t think much of it but I think it works well to build the core. To answer your question, it’s important to hold the plank position for at least a minute to strengthen the weak abdominals. From the way you speak about core-exercises, that doesn’t seem it’s going to be a problem with you. Keep up the good work.

    Great information about Lower-Cross Syndrome. I have been informed that it’s best to be guided by a doctor if you have a serious case of LCS and not try to manage it on your own.What do you think about that?

    • Hi Latoya,

      Thanks for your question. Treating LCS is best done under the direction of a physical therapist who can test for underlying conditions and recommend a customized stretching and strengthening program. My hope is that the information in this post will help you better understand and put into action any recommendation that a physical therapist may give you. In short, my information is not a substitute for a physical therapist consultation but just a way to add more understanding.
