Tip of the Week: Sitting at your desk… the right way!

There’s a reason why many people feel better while on vacation, and its not just because of decrease in stress.  Occupational stresses and bad habits in the workplace are a big contributor to back pain. At the top of the dreaded list of reasons why people’s backs “kill” at work is  sitting at a desk for hours during the day.  So here’s a few tips we tell our patients:

1) Get up every hour! Even if its just to stretch out and walk around your office for 1-2 minutes..it will help you tremendously

2) Recline in your chair and use your back rest.

3) Keep your feet on the ground and avoid crossing your legs.
