Do you have neck or back pain? When was the last time you took a look at your posture?
Most often, neck and back pain can either be caused by or further worsened by poor posture. Whether it is sitting at your desk or standing waiting for the elevator proper posture is imperative to maintain spinal and joint health. Here are a few tips for proper posture at your workstation:
- Sit all the way back in your chair so that your low back is supported.
- Keep your feet flat on the floor. If you do not reach the floor, invest in a foot rest.
- Ensure your arm rests are set so that your forearm can easily rest on them with a slight bend in the elbows. This will limit the strain on your shoulders and neck.
If you think posture may be causing some of your pain, consult our physiotherapists.
