Tips to Prevent Back & Neck Pain in the Workplace

Improper Desk Ergonomics Can Strain Your Back and Neck

Thornhill Chiropractor, Dr. Richard Collis, gives important tips for preventing neck & back strain due to improper desk ergonomics:

♦          Sit back in your chair so that the small of your back is touching the back of the chair

♦          Push yourself and your chair up close to your keyboard and mouse.

♦          Raise or lower your chair or keyboard so that your elbows are at a 90º and tucked to your sides.

♦          Ensure that your monitor is a distance of 18 to 24 inches from your face, and that your eyes are level with the top one-third of the monitor.

♦          Your knees should be positioned slightly higher than your hips. If they are not, you can lower your chair or place a footstool under your feet to accomplish this.

♦          Take short 1-2 minute stretch brakes every 20-30 minutes to reduce back and neck stress.
