The Stool Trick

If you get lower back pain when you stand too long, especially when slightly bent forward, place one foot (doesn’t matter which one) on a footstool such as the indestructible beige workhorse from Rubbermaid pictured. This causes lower back joints to decompress while transferring load to stronger thigh and butt muscles.

Makes an immediate difference for cooks, machinists, surgeons and those working at stand-up desks.
