If you work in any kind of office or desk job environment, sitting all day is simply part of the job. You work at a computer, your computer is on a desk, you sit at that desk…it’s just the way it is. However, for every hour you spend sitting, you’re actually doing tremendous harm to your body. For your back alone, sitting all day can result in herniated discs, pinched nerves, and other spine injuries that cause stiffness, soreness, and long-lasting pain. When you experience back pain from sitting too long, you could also develop neck problems from compromising your posture and working in an unnatural position. In addition, these hours of sitting can disrupt metabolic functions, leading to higher cholesterol, obesity, and decreased insulin sensitivity (meaning a higher likelihood of developing diabetes). Even if you are active outside of the office, the damage from your workstation has already been done. This is why the hazardous routine of sitting 40-hours per week has been compared to the health risks of smoking. Since Austin is so dedicated to a clean environment and healthy living lifestyle, it’s really quite shocking how few of us have made the necessary adjustments to offset the health problems caused from sitting. In order to prevent these problems, come to Relax The Back to upgrade your regular office to an ergonomic workstation to improve your long-term health and everyday productivity.
If you want to avoid the risks of obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure caused by sitting all day, this is now possible with a standing desk. Not only is it good for your health to take breaks from sitting, but the standing desk allows your body to keep regular circulation and prevents your back from developing dormancy. With the standing desk, you can keep your back limber to avoid pain, injury, stiffness, and soreness.
Your ergonomic workstation isn’t defined by just furniture. You also need workstation accessories that make your repetitive motions and processes more natural and less straining. This is where items like ergonomic keyboard trays, monitor arms, lumbar supports, and footrests can really make a huge difference.
Relax The Back has several products that can improve your health and productivity at work. To see which ergonomic products work best for you, come to Relax The Back to try them out today.
