TWELVE TIPS ON HOW TO AVOID LOW BACK PAIN WHILE SITTING AT YOUR DESK…

Sitting correctly can help avoid many types of back pain but in particular lower back pain. Try some of the following tips to avoid a flare-up of your pain. Poor posture is a hard habit to break. You need to be constantly aware of your posture to avoid aggravating your back.

  1. Stay flexible if you are desk bound, move around every 30 minutes, do not get chanined to your desk.
  2. Sitting at yur computer is a very important one. This is because you have to lean forward or stretch out with your arms, both of which can cause back ache. To stop this happening set your keyboard so you rest your arms on the desk to use it, and your screen so that your head is straight when you look at it.
  3. Always sit with your arms level with the top of the desk as this will help you avoid flicking up your wrists or hunching your shoulders to type.
  4. When using a keyboard and mouse, keep them close to the front of the desk so that you do not find yourself in a position where theres a gap and you are needing to extend your arms forward when typing. If you do not do this you can quickly bring on shoulder and neck tensions as our arms are suprisingly heavy when extended forward.
  5. Buy as many ergonomic products as you can afford, they will all make a difference.
  6. When you sit down the weight going through your discs is increased threefold so stand up for a couple of minutes on a regular basis.
  1. If work is leaving you exhausted and in pain then design a flexible plan that works best for you. Maybe try some products like a telephone headset, or keyboard tray that you can use elsewhere.
  2. At the office, rearrange your workspace for comfort and easy accessibility.
  3. Keep your back straight with your shoulders pulled back. Slouching cannot only cause back pain but also neck pain.
  4. Pull your chair close to your desk, and this will help to keep you straight and upright.
  5. If necessary build a supportive back using cushions or lumber supports.
  6. Always try to ensure your lower-back curve is supported as this is particularly good for easing tension build up on sensitive backs.
