February 2017 Newsletter – How to correctly get up from a chair without placing extra stress on your back

In order to be able to stand up from a chair without placing extra stress on your back, you need strong abdominal, gluteal (buttocks) and leg muscles, particularly the quadriceps (muscles in the front part of your thighs). As we age, the simple process of getting out of a chair that we took for granted when we were younger gets more difficult. We start compensating for muscles that have lost strength by using our backs to lift us out of our chairs instead of the muscles we should be using.
