Are you sitting in your chair correctly?
The number one workstation issue is: Do you use a comfortable, ergonomic chair at your desk? It’s important that you have an ergonomic chair that allows you to maintain proper body posture and optimal support to your neck, back, shoulders, arms, legs, buttocks, legs and feet. An ergonomic chair should be designed to support a variety of sitting postures, and you should be able to change the position settings so you won’t feel any sort of fatigue throughout the day. You should maintain an erect posture and keep your back rested against the back support of the ergonomic chair. Take frequent work breaks to help keep the musculature of the neck, shoulder and arms to keep them more relaxed. Dr. Gary Martin, our Irvine Chiropractor shows his patients how to perform stretching exercises that can be done at work for the neck, shoulders, arms and hands. Chiropractic adjustments remove irritations to the nervous system and allows your body to adapt to the stresses of sitting in the workplace. If you follow the above steps correctly then you can work comfortably without any back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain.
