Rib "Cage" or Rib "Basket"?
4/1/2005
Pamela Kihm, GCFP
Most of us grew up calling the bony structure that surrounds and protects the heart and lungs a "rib cage" but, is it constructed to be more of a cage or a basket? This is a very fundamental question because if you truly think of your thorax as a "cage," you might move with more rigidity. Terminology can affect our perception and performance.

This lesson is helpful for finger and hand mobility, ease in joint movement, dexterity, and relief from stiffness. Surprisingly easy, quick and effective-- nice after working, being on the computer or for dexterity before music practice.

Sitting Comfortably

Many people have the idea that the pelvis should be "vertical" to have proper posture for sitting. This means that the sacrum, or the back of the pelvis, is at roughly a ninety-degree angle to a flat chair seat, with the "bowl" of the pelvis neither tipping forward nor backward. There are ways to use our pelvis more effectively when sitting, so that we can stay comfortable for longer periods of time, and for moving while sitting, in activities such as computing, driving, visiting with friends, reading, writing, and eating, to name just a few. The short lesson in this article will begin with a vertical pelvis and then explore another alternative. This experiment should take about ten minutes or less. If you start to get tired or sore, of course, stop and rest immediately.
