4 Tips to Keep Desk Work From Killing Your Back

By Virginia Laird

Do you have a job that requires you to be at your desk for hours on end? This can be one of the many factors contributing to back pain. Another instigator to such pain includes using technology for an extended amount of time. When utilizing technology one may often lean or hunch forward. This puts a great deal of stress on the back and neck as well. There are a few tips to reducing your back pain.

Make Sure Your Chair Has Good Lumbar Support

Although your office has most likely provided you with a decent chair for your desk, it may also have been selected as one that fit the budget and not the back. If your chair does not provide good lumbar support, this is an item worth making a personal investment. If you aren’t ready to throw a little extra green on a desk chair, you could invest in lumbar support pillows. Spending hours at your desk takes its toll on your back. Make sure to protect it.

Elevate Your Computer

It is important to keep the things you use most at eye level. Anything much below this may require you to hunch over for longer periods of time. Don’t be afraid to elevate your computer. Keeping your computer at eye level can help reduce neck and upper back pain. It will also help keep your spine from restricting function.

Utilize Desk Stretches

Silly as you may feel participating in them, desk stretches are important. These can help your body release tension that may set in caused by long hours at a desk. Your chiropractor can offer you a series of stretches that can be done at your desk. They do not take much time but can offer a nice change of pace during the workday.

Put Your Chiropractor to Work

Visit your chiropractor. With the help of your chiropractor you can have tension released. Sitting at a desk or computer can not only cause back pain but can also cause problems with your posture. Lucky for you, both of these areas of concern are ones a chiropractor can handle. After only a few short visits, you may notice your pain is finally in check.
