Avoiding Neck Pain from Sitting at Your Computer Desk
Have long hours at your desk made you one of the Athens, GA andLoganville, GA residents seeking neck pain treatment? With more people working from home than ever before, we are all prone to spending hours in front of a computer screen, which can trigger a number of problems, including headaches, stiffness, and neck pain.
At first, this may seem like a minor nuisance, but without proper care, neck pain can quickly become an ongoing and debilitating problem. Though you may not be able to avoid sitting at your computer desk to work, there are measures you can take to prevent this issue. Here are a few tips from chiropractors Dr. Giles and Dr. Morgan of Grand Oaks Healthcare in Athens, GA and Loganville, GA to help keep you healthy at work:
- Ensure proper posture - Rest your feet flat on the floor and your back against the back of the chair.
- Adjust your monitor to the proper height - Make sure your monitor is the correct height for your stature. If adjusted optimally, your nose should be in the middle of the monitor and eyes should be level with the top of it.
- If possible, stand while working - This will take a lot of stress off your lower back and decrease the potential for neck pain.
