Working Through the Pain
Most of us spend more time at our work desk than we spend at any other location in our lives except, perhaps, our beds. Most people don’t consider exactly what this means for their pain management needs and their posture – but changing a few key things about how you interact in your workstation can make a big difference.
It’s important to adjust the chair height so that the feet rest flat on the floor and to adjust the computer monitor so that the top of the screen is either just below or at eye-level when you are sitting.
Those dealing with chronic pain may also want to use an articulating keyboard and mouse on a slide-out tray. It’s important, as well, to take mini-breaks every thirty minutes or so to stretch, move around and rest your hands and eyes.
