I have the same problem. I had stopped crossing my legs for a while. But now I've been doing it again. Sorry for my back.

I was so surprised to see the headline of this video clip about not crossing legs when sitting!

More than a year ago, when Ellen was having various back problems, and also when she ended up in the hospital bed on the show, I composed a detailed letter to let her know that one significant reason why she might have ongoing back problems was because she crosses her legs when she sits.

I learned that info from both my special 'back yoga' teacher and my chiropractor, but I thought the Ellen team might not pay attention to such an obscure comment, so I never mailed it in... Now I'm so glad to see this episode, since that's the message I wanted to send her!

By the way, I also learned about not crossing your legs from an incredible injury prevention teacher named Dr. Judith B. (Judy) Alter, whom I studied with privately in LA and who taught for many years at UCLA. I strongly recommend Ellen & the team check out her amazing books: "Surviving Exercise" and "Stretch and Strengthen", and work privately with her as well if possible. Judy saved me from knee surgeries decades ago when I was a runner, and I taught her methods to hundreds of athletes, yoga teachers, etc. over many years.

Best wishes!

PS. Happy Anniversary to Ellen & Portia - love you both!
