My wife and I flew to Denver to see youngest son last week, and flew home this week. More reminders that sitting is not good for backs. Fortunately, we had to walk and wait for about thirty minutes for our baggage, so our lower backs were ready for the challenge of lifting suitcases when they arrived. If you have read the book, you know that I suffer with spinal stenosis and several herniated discs. The discs are worse when seated; the stenosis is better. And the discs are better standing and the stenosis is worse standing for long periods of time. As you may be guessing, it is important for everyone to change positions frequently, in order to avoid discomfort if you have back issues, and to prevent back issues. This is not easy on an aircraft flying through turbulence.
