What is “W” sitting?

“W” sitting refers to the non-neutral sitting style where knees are pointing outwards. This type of sitting forces the knees and hips to adapt to intense and abnormal pressure that is now being placed on the joints. Children who demonstrate this type of sitting typically have tightness in their hips. This type of sitting style tends to be common among younger children or children who have weak muscles and can become problematic as life progresses. It increases difficulties with balance, walking, running, and the ability to demonstrate an appropriate neutral seated posture. Want to learn more? Contact Cogwheel Clinic today!
