Computer Use and Back Pain: These Tips Can Help!

By Genevieve Cunningham

Computers are a part of our lives. There's no going back -- they'll be a staple forever. In a lot of ways, computers are incredibly beneficial to our daily lives. They make things easier, more streamlined. They make things faster and more efficient. But there are some downsides too. Over time, we get addicted to screens, which can bring a wealth of health risks into our lives. And one of the most common health complaints is pain. But can we beat the pain that is caused by computers? Or are we doomed? If you would like to use computers without so much discomfort, take a look at these tips to add to your life today. 

Create Some Balance

It's too easy to stay on the computer all day long. There's so much distraction there -- social media, texts on the phone, endless internet browsing. But if we want to be healthy, we have to create some balance. Plan your computer use in advance. When time is up, get off the screen. Balance means spending some time on your device, but spending time without it as well. Though it will take some practice and self-discipline, your health -- and likely your mental well-being -- will thank you in the long run. 

Stretch All Day

If you need to be on a screen all day -- which happens in many work environments -- you can mitigate the risk by incorporating regular stretching into your day. Every hour or two, get up and do a quick routine. This will regularly release tension that eventually leads to pain. At first, you'll have to remind yourself to get up and move. But as it becomes more routine, you'll crave the stretching and movement without having to think about it twice. 

See a Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to ease pain, and this includes pain that is induced by excessive computer use. Chiropractors remove joint restrictions, ease tension, and release pain. If you add it to your regular routine, you'll feel these effects over and over again. You may find that the pain doesn't return at all -- or it doesn't return at the same intensity. Chiropractic care has been proven to be one of the most effective methods at managing long-term pain. If you're a regular computer user -- and most of us are! -- adding chiropractic care to your life might be your best choice.
