Effects Of Cross-Legged Sitting Posture And Other Wrong Sitting Postures

Sitting for a long time in the same position is terrible for your health. According to the research studies, sitting for a long time increases the risk of diabetes, cancer, and heart diseases. It is too bad for your health.

One of the sitting postures from is sitting cross-legged. It is all damaging your body.

A clinical instructor, Dr. Naresh C. Rao, at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City said this posture as “it is not a nice ergonomic condition.”

When you sit with crossed legs, it put your hips in a twisted position, and this posture puts pressure on your back and neck. Your spine gets under pressure. Sitting regularly in this posture can cause the permanent damages to your body. Don’t make this posture as your regular and regular sitting posture. If you make it into your habit, then you should read the below effects of this posture. And I am sure after reading this you will change your sitting postures.


1. Nerve Pain, Ouch, Those Pins, And Needles

When you sit crossed legs, it causes pressure on the peroneal nerves. These nerves are at the back of the knees. If you sit in this position for a long time, it causes pain in the feet. It is warning for you to change your sitting positions after some time. It can lead to permanent nerve damage. It can cause a medical condition which is called “Drop Foot.”


2. Pumped-up Blood Pressure

According to the several studies, sitting crossed legs for a long time can cause the problem of high blood pressure. It does not mean that it causes heart problems but can be dangerous for the people who prone to blood clots. It increases the blood pressure because this posture forces more blood in your heart and heart becomes tired with such power. We should remember to change our sitting postures after some time.


3. May Cause Spider and Varicose Veins

According to the various researchers, the sitting postural mistakes can indirectly cause these problems. Dr. Hooman Madyoon at Cedars Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles said that “at the least,  sitting crossed-legged appears to worsen existing varicose veins.” He also said that “the pressure of one leg sitting on the top of the other impedes blood flow.” It can also rupture the blood vessels.


The Best Ways To Sit

The proper postures either sitting or standing always prevents the back problems and also lowers the risk of heart problems. It also improves the functioning of your lungs.

Dr. Rao suggests his patients sit with uncrossed legs and with feet flat on the floor. There are different sitting postures that you should remind in your brain always.


1. Slouching

It is one another sitting posture which we mostly find among us. It can cause severe back pain, in the long run. Always try to sit straight which will strengthen your core muscles.

2. Shifting your weight on one leg

While standing, most of us prefer to stand on one leg. For example, we usually see the people around us standing in the queue of supermarkets or waiting for the bus at the bus stop prefers to stand on one leg. It can cause pain in your lower back and the muscles of the buttock. Instead, you must try to strengthen your back muscles.

3. Hunched position

The poor sitting postures lead to these rounded shoulders. If you also find your shoulders in the same pattern then do some stretching and mobilizing exercises to bring your shoulders in the same pattern as before.

4. Standing with a protruding back

Never stand with a protruding back especially with the buttocks. You should try some leg stretching exercises to set you this problem.

So, at last, I will advise you sit straight and with crossed legs. And change your sitting postures time to time.
