Does working at a desk all day cause you pain?
Most common complaints include neck pain, lower back pain, shoulder pain, elbow and wrist pain. Usually, the pain comes on gradually beginning with stiffness and mild discomfort and then eventually leading to more significant pain that affects the quality of your life. In the United States, millions of Americans have office jobs that require them to spend over 1,700 hours in front of a computer screen annually. It has been said that “sitting is the new smoking” when it comes to health issues nationally. The body is made to move, not to be stationary all day. Making things worse, many sit with poor posture and bad desk/chair ergonomics.
Okay, that’s the bad news. If you are one of the millions of Americans stuck behind a computer all day we can help. The reality is you either need to quit working, suffer in pain or find a way to manage your spinal health while you work at your computer. For the third option, either schedule a complimentary 15-minute consultation with one of our doctors or better yet, schedule an appointment to get the advice and care you need. Bottom line; you don’t have to live in pain.
