3 Tips for Improving Your Posture at Work to Relieve Back Pain, Archdale, North Carolina

You may not think about your posture all that often, but if you suffer from chronic back pain, poor stature could be the culprit. If you work in an office or a job that requires you to sit for most of the day, minor spinal adjustments and improved posture could provide almost immediate pain relief. Here are a few ways to escape pain at your nine-to-five.

3 Tips for Improving Your Posture at Work & Relieving Back Pain

1. Align Your Body

If you naturally slump, make a conscious effort to keep your body in alignment when sitting at your desk. Start by sitting up straight, and align your ears, shoulders, and hips. If you need to readjust after an extended period, scoot forward and sit on the edge of the chair, or switch to a balance ball. In each case, maintain a straight back.

2. Take a Walk

It’s natural for your muscles to become fatigued after staying in the same position for a few hours. Tired muscles will result in hunched or slumped shoulders, which can worsen back pain. Avoid poor posture by getting up and taking a brisk walk around the office before your muscles tire.

3. Make Your Chair More Ergonomic

Luckily, there are a variety of ergonomic props and pillows on the market to make your chair more comfortable and promote good posture. Ask your chiropractor what kind of support you could benefit from most, and check out some online reviews to find a pillow that will relieve your daily discomfort. 

 

If you suffer from chronic back pain, improving your posture will help prevent the pain from getting worse, but it may not necessarily treat it.
