This course will focus on the hip and sacroiliac area. A prolonged sitting posture can lead to tight hip flexor muscles that encourage weakness in the low back. Bending of the knees in this position will cause tight hamstrings muscles which pull the ischium downwards that further strain the low back and can compress the sciatic nerve.  @ HomePrep is a National Leader in online education.
