Most jobs these days require you to spend a long time either standing or sitting in the same position, whether you are working from home or from the office. When you do not know how to do this properly it can cause discomfort because of the additional stress on your spine and nervous system.
Research has shown if you sit or stand without moving for longer than 30min the muscles start switching off to where you are more likely to slouch. You can start getting headaches, lower back pain and/or neck pain. This has been made worse since working from home has increased. “Your body is not made to sit or be still for such a prolonged period of time.” explains Annika, the chiropractic advisor at The Right Chiro. If you sit or stay in one position for longer than 30 minutes, the stress becomes too much for your spine.
Your body is made to move, movement is a vital part of the proper function and health of your body. Here are easy steps to follow to make sure you get the most out of your work or home setup.
when sitting or standing behind a desk:
“When you have the best set up at work, you are not only supporting your health, you are supporting your productivity and your income”, said Justin, one of the chiropractors at The Right Chiro. Imagine having a happy boss, a chance for a promotion and a higher income.
When you sit or stand for too long in a poor position this leads to increased stress in your spine and nervous system which leads to further discomfort in your back. The question we get asked the most at The Right Chiro is: “How should I sit so I don’t hurt my back?”
Follow the steps above, to get the work life you deserve, both at home and at the office.
