Experts advise choosing a chair which is firm enough and gives good lower back support Are the heigh! and depth of the chair comfortable'' One well known orthopedist reportedly advises that "...anyone engaged in a sitting occupation move around on his chair as much as possible " Can you get up every so often, breathe deeply, walk around, shrug your shoulders and rotate your head to loosen up tight muscles and stimulate circulation'.' The same goes for driving. As one specialist notes, "A common complaint is 'my backache is worst after an hour in the car seat.'" Is your car seat adjusted to YOU? A seat too deep for your thigh length can lead to pressure behind your knees. The combination of slumped posture and a sagging seat can also give you a pain in the back. One possible solution experts offer is to sit on a piece of plywood covered with a pad. If your car seat doesn't support your back properly, have you looked into back supports for your automobile? Good body mechanics can keep your back in better shape during pregnancy, a time when back trouble is prevalent. According Pacemaker Dangers Reported WASH1NTON (UI'I) - The Deartment of Health, Education and Welfare said today there have been 26 deaths associated with defective eletronic heart pacemakers from 1972 through March of this year — more than double the total previously reported.
