is a classic example of how Western design values have imposed
themselves on our postures and general wellbeing.
would think that when referring to “comfy” chairs. They would be just
that, but comfy in this context is wrong they should really refer to
“soft” chairs. In terms of our maintaining correct postural alignment
the Western “comfy” chair is absurd.
dreadful pieced of badly designed furniture force the spinal column of
the victim into incorrect shapes which feed into a negative feedback
loop of excess tension. All the while we are actually lead to believe
that we are sitting “comfortably”.
third world countries, this comfy furniture is physically unavailable
and so the people are forced to squat rather than sit and lie on the
floor rather than a soft mattress - in a strange turnaround this means
natural posture is forced upon them throughout their daily lives. Not
surprisingly back pain becomes much less common and similarly the
incidence of reported Fibromyalgia and CFS is practically nil.
there are drawbacks to lying on the floor but my point stands. The
first recording of Fibromyalgia and CFS are relatively recent.
Certainly within the confines of the recent industrial revolution. Have
we in reality evolved too fast? It’s important to remember just how
many millions of years it took humans to get off 4 legs onto 2!!
"comfy" sofa example again. What really are the manufacturer's bottom
line criteria in designing and building this item?
design requirements and resultant specification is that it is more
fashionable than the competition and then that it can be made more
cheaply than the competition so the mark-up and profit can be higher
from each sale. Case closed.
for one minute believe that marketeers and salesmen are sitting round
their “brain-storming” coffee mornings saying "let’s design a sofa so
our buyers can relax in a natural position, realign their faulty
posture and avoid muscular tension."
this was the case the “comfy chair” would not exist in its current
form. Another example of “chronic misuse of body” forced upon us by
tradition and the manufacturers design specification is the Western
In terms of going to the toilet comfortably this piece of domestic
furniture is absolutely wrong and causes the necessity for a huge
amount of pressure to be applied in the lumbar area in order to expel a
motion. Again squatting as in other thirld world countries and until
recently many first world countries is the evolutionary correct
position. However as its considered inelegant as for example in
France , public
conveniences have now been replaced with the modern seated W.C.
I recommend is that you employ the simple strategies that I am about to
outline as soon as possible, which will present you with “quick wins”
in terms of your overall musculoskeletal positioning.
have talked about the musculoskeletal anomalies inherent in
Fibromyalgia and CFS sufferers and how they are largely responsible for
maintaining your illness.
there is any doubt about these assertions lets look at the data:
moving around, keeping moving helps to mobilize the joints and reduces
the symptoms caused by bad posture.
operative surgery to correct spinal disc injury or failure is often
improved even further with therapy to learn how to use back and
episode of back pain, bed rest is no longer recommended by
practitioners; moving around normally and with correct muscular
movement is the recommended technique.
posture is often behind many problems with pinched nerves in the back
and neck which can sometimes manifest as other conditions such as
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
relation to Fibromyalgia and associated fatigue the most important
thing is to alleviate compression in the spinal column. This will mean
fewer attacks of musculoskeletal pain which are further triggering your
