Do you have back pain while sitting at your desk chair?? Is it harder and harder to concentrate throughout your day because your back pain starts in the morning and then increases the more that you sit at work?? By the time you leave work and drive home, do you feel like you can’t get rid of your back pain until you go to sleep for the night??
OR Do you have back pain from all the walking and standing that you do at work?? Do you feel that at the end of the day all that you look forward to is sitting because your back is aching so much from all your standing??
Well here’s the answer: our bodies were NOT meant to stay in any position for the entire day! We were meant to move- meaning sit, stand, kneel, squat, lie down and more throughout our day!
So, in terms of working and ways to prevent your back pain no matter what your job is, the good news is that there are many things that you can do throughout your day.
Here are some tips to help you reduce your back pain while at work:
Get a sit to stand desk (if you are at a desk/computer position at work)
Take breaks no matter what you do!
Take a stretch break to loosen up your muscles, reduce your aches and pains and prevent further discomfort in the morning AND afternoon to break up the workday
