5 Reasons You Should Stop Crossing Your Legs

Do you often cross your legs while sitting casually or at any event? Well, it’s a common pose that is usually associated with style and feminine culture.

Crossing your legs is actually quite common, although it’s not often brought to attention. 

It can add a style and elegance to appearance. It has aesthetic value, but there are some medical concerns that must be revealed here.

Here are 5 reasons to stop crossing your legs…

1. Numbness in the muscles

Crossing the legs exerts pressure on the peroneal nerve at the back of your knee that supplies sensation to the lower legs and feet.

If you remain in that pose for a longer time, legs or feet can go numb.

It gives a pain like someone is giving pins or needles to your muscles. If it happens, massage the numb muscles vigorously to increase circulation in the veins.
