Preventing back pain at the movies

Going to the movies is a popular activity especially during fall and winter. Looking up at the movie screen or sitting in the wrong position can cause back and neck pain. Here are some tips to prevent back pain from occurring:

  • Choose the right seat: You want to choose a seat that is relatively in the middle of the theater so that you aren’t straining your neck to look at the screen. The best seat to sit in is the aisle seat because it gives you enough room to stretch your legs which helps to relieve pressure on your back.
  • Use armrests: Resting your arms helps to alleviate pressure and strain on your back to keep it straight.
  • Have a good posture: It’s important to sit in a good posture because it reduces pressure on your back. You’re going to be sitting for a while so make sure you’re sitting in a good position for your back and neck.
