Letter: A Strange Position on Joint Care
To the Editor:
I am a senior citizen, so I read with interest your Nov. 18 article “Want to Avoid Surgery? Take Good Care of Your Joints.” However, I am puzzled by the statement “When you have a hunched back, and your upper body isn’t underneath your hips, chronic conditions start to happen.” I certainly don’t want chronic conditions to start, but just how can I position my upper body underneath my hips? Standing on my head is the only way I can think of. When I tried this, the result was a total disaster. I’m afraid repeating it might cause a chronic condition. What would you suggest?
