SAN FRANCISCO — So, maybe mom was right. People should sit up straight because it could be affecting their health. A new book released by Posture Press offers easy ways for desk workers to improve posture and improve health – “The Science of Sitting Made Simple” (ISBN: 978-097-16-0-20-52). Good health starts with good posture, and most people could use help with both. That’s why author Dr. Gregg J. Carb has written a book that promises to save backs before it’s too late. “Bad posture isn’t just the wrong sitting or standing position,” Dr. Carb, says. “It is what your body becomes and how you look, move and feel.”

“The Science of Sitting Made Simple” is written with the average person in mind and the ever present need to stem the rapidly growing, worldwide epidemic, of preventable posture-related health problems.

Posture PressThis practical book features 10 easy steps to help people look and feel better through good posture. Material is presented to guide readers to greater well being, a more youthful appearance, and a lifetime of pain-free service from their spines.

Dr. Carb has included dozens of illustrations, easy-to-understand instructions, clear-cut posture tips, brief exercises, and stretches to start everyone on their way to better posture and spinal health.

A handy step-by-step ergonomic tune-up is also included as part of a simple posture improvement plan. It is ideal for people who can only devote a limited amount of time and effort to learning about and practicing good-posture techniques.

As an added feature, the appendix section provides greater depth, details, and insights into the subject of sitting posture, injury prevention and winning the battle with back pain.
