Sitting in front of a computer all day can force you to stick your neck forward and hunch your shoulders. If you’re not ergonomically correct, you will end up with back and neck pain. To counter these effects opt for ergonomically designed desk chairs at work. If you spend a lot of time on the phone at work, use a speakerphone or a headset, so your neck muscles will not contract unevenly. And finally, take breaks to walk around the office and stretch.
Posture problems you may not know about can lead to injury
There are many problems associated with poor posture that have negative long-term effects on your body and health. These problems with your posture will not only impact how you feel, but how your body looks. If you continue to exercise with poor posture you will recruit the wrong muscles and build your body disproportionately.
It is possible to prevent and correct posture problems with the right kind of exercise and stretching programme. Contact Pro Active for more details.
