SITTING: THE BANE OF BACK HEALTH!
Esther and I are saying similar things here: what we humans must avoid is both slumped sitting, where the whole spine collapses into a C-bend, the head carry forward in front of the line of gravity, and rigid upright sitting (which people with a bad back feel duty bound to do). To sit well (with a bad back) it's ideal to have a protuberance (say a small pillow) into the small of your back at waist level that supports you from behind and keeps your spine in a relaxed S-bend. It's important that you sit in this way without effort. Without effort repeat! The rest of your spine then stacks effortlessly above your pelvis with equal amounts of weight borne before and behind the line of gravity. (I prefer a S-bend to J-bend because it helps balance and support very heavy head.) It may sound strange, but most seating requires a pillow in the small of the back to be comfortable.
