Avoiding Back Pain While Chained to a Desk

By Virginia Laird

There are millions who feel as though their job keeps them chained to a desk. This can require you to sit for long periods of time, leading to back pain. Rather than allowing this to consume your every thought while you try to get your work completed, take the advice of chiropractors when trying to manage your pain. A few tips include: 

  • Adjust your computer screen
  • Sit with your feet flat on the ground
  • Get up and move

Adjust Your Computer Screen

Working at a computer all day can prove to be a daunting task. For many, it can prove to be a struggle for the back. Chiropractors insist that adjusting your computer screen can be helpful in managing and preventing back pain as you work. Chiropractors encourage those who work at a desk full-time to situate the computer so that it is at eye level when you are using correct posture. This can help prevent the need and desire to hunch over. Give this tip a try the next time you head to the office. 

Sit With Your Feet Flat On the Ground

While the urge to cross your legs when you sit can be overwhelming, sitting in that manner can be harmful for the joints of your spine. When you sit with your legs crossed, it causes the joints of the spine to shift, which leads to restriction. This can be quite painful. Rather than having this pain take over your day at work, start making it a habit to sit with your feet flat on the ground. 

Get Up and Move

Although work may require you to sit at your desk for long periods of time, there is no reason to feel trapped. Chiropractors insist that getting up and moving can help release tension that builds in the back. Much of the time, it is this tension that leads to back pain. When you find the time to get up, it is advised that you add a few light stretches to your day. Tomorrow, while you are at work, make the effort to get up at least once every hour to stretch and walk a short distance. 

If these tips do not help take care of your back pain, it may be necessary to consider routine chiropractic care. This care can help you get hold of your pain. If you are ready to begin this care, locate The Joint Chiropractic in your neighborhood. With more than 475 locations nationwide, you are sure to find one near you. And with no appointment necessary, getting started on your routine chiropractic care can be as simple as stopping by at your earliest convenience.
