Is your workplace setup organized and arranged in such a way that is optimized for your neck and back? If you’re leaving it up to your employer, chances are your desk, chair, and the rest of your workplace might not be exactly ergonomically sound.
Below are a few ways to make your workplace a little more neck and back-friendly.
Stand When You Can
If you don’t already have a stand-up/elevating desk, this could be a great addition to to your workplace setup. If you work at an office, chances are you spend quite a bit of time at your desk. If you can split your time between sitting and standing, this is ideal.
Don’t Forget Your Feet
Investing in an ergonomic footpad and a workplace foot massage device is worth every penny. These handy-dandy products, when utilized correctly can help significantly reduce wear and tear, not to mention joint and lower back pain.
Stretch it Out
If you can incorporate a short stretch routine into your 9-5, your back and neck will thank you. Chances are your employer doesn’t have a team stretch session going, so it’s important you take the time to stretch your body to reduce repetitive strain.
