Workplace Ergonomics: Avoid Neck and Lower Back Pain

When you have an office job, it can be easy to leave at the end of the day with neck or lower back pain. The most common cause of these pains is improper posture and ergonomics at your desk. If your chair is too high or your monitor or keyboard is too low, you won’t be sitting in a way that keeps you from experiencing pain.

man with back pain needs chiropractic care.

Another way you can end up in pain at the office is if you sit still too long. Sitting in one position too long can cause your muscles to stay tense. When you finally get up from your desk, you’re more likely to experience pain.

Preventing Neck and Lower Back Pain

There are a couple of effective ways to prevent neck and lower back pain at the office. The first thing you can do is make sure your desk, chair, and computer are at the proper heights. You should feel comfortable and relaxed at your desk, sitting up straight, with your feet on the floor. Adjusting your desk environment just a little bit can make a big difference.

It’s also a good idea to get up and walk around throughout the day. Getting out of your chair periodically, even if you just walk around your office, gives you a chance to stretch your muscles and reposition your body when you sit back down. That can keep you from experiencing pain by the end of the day.
