Crossing your leg while sitting is nothing new to most people and this has become an acceptable habit particularly in the western world.
People feel comfortable when they sit in this way but studies have now revealed that this seemingly harmless habit is actually a cause for concern.
When you cross your legs what you do is put undue pressure on the bone nerve of your other leg.
This can lead to your legs and feet being impaired. It is also believed that when you sit in an Indian sitting position you only impair your legs the more.
You could come down with a foot drop, a position that causes the front portion of your toes and foot to come down with a bone nerve palsy.
You will also increase your risk of back and neck pain when you sit with your legs crossed.
So make sure when you sit you don’t cross your legs.
