Unless your employer is willing to outfit each desk and office with the latest and greatest in supportive furniture, it is likely that most of your day is spent shifting sitting positions or getting up to take breaks so you can stretch out and relieve tension. While this is a great way to stay loose, there are other tips to keep in mind in order to have better posture and reduce your back pain. First, be sure to sit up straight because slouching leads to neck and back pain. You also want to look straight ahead. This means you may need to adjust your computer monitor so that the top of the screen is at eye level. When looking at yourself from the side, your ear, middle of your shoulder, and hip should all line up. At The Spine Pro we are here to offer tips you’ll need at the office for a better posture.

Suggestions to Reduce Pain from Sitting in the Office

In addition to altering your posture while sitting at your desk, there are a couple of other steps you can take to help you become more mobile and loose while working. First, place your trashcan farther away from your desk so you are forced to move when you need to throw something away. You can also drink more water during the day so you take more bathroom breaks. Set hourly reminders on your computer so that you get up and stretch or walk around the office, even if just for a few minutes at a time. All of these are just a few ways that you can help support your back health and stay healthy while on the job. For more tips and tricks, be sure to talk with your doctor so that you can reduce pain and stress.
