An average 8-hour workday can be tough on your body, especially if you live in the paradise of Palm Beach Gardens. You get home feeling physically exhausted with aches and pains even though you’ve been sitting all day. The average American may not realize that the act of sitting is precisely what is taking a toll on our bodies. Damage can accumulate very minute that we remain inert. Most common back pain people experience is a result of the weakening of core muscles in our bodies caused by inactivity.
Many studies have found the dangers that prolonged sitting can cause on our bodies, including an increased risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Your local Palm Beach Gardens Relax The Back location can help answer a lot of the questions you may have about pain may be experiencing, and help you prevent or improve upon the condition of your health.
Standing Up for What’s RightWhile we may be tied to the work that we do, there are ways to combat the negative health affects of remaining seated. By changing the way we spend the hours at our desks, we can positively change our health.
• Taking time to regularly stand up and move around kicks your circulation and metabolism back into gear. Taking a stretch break every hour, taking the long way to the restroom, or parking further away from your building are small ways you can keep your body in motion throughout the day.
• Sit-to-Stand desks are gaining traction as a potential solution for workplace fatigue and back stress. By adjusting the desk from seated to standing, you can relieve tension in your legs and back, as well as increase mental alertness while working.
• Making sure that your office space works for your specific needs is key. Ergonomic workstations make customization easy. It is important to be able to create a comfortable setup that has proper height and flexibility according to your requirements.
Fighting BackThe small adjustments you make in your every day routine can have a lasting effect. Avoiding irreversible conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome can be as easy as making sure that you have a proper keyboard and mouse setup at your workstation.
• The keyboard tray should be no more than 1 ½ inches above your thighs.
• Your forearms, wrists, and hands should form a straight line to your keyboard. Your arms should bend at a 90-degree angle or greater.
• The position of the mouse should be directly adjacent to your keyboard and holding the mouse itself should allow your hand to rest in a neutral position never straining your muscles.
• Split keyboards are helpful for avoiding repetitive stress injuries and in keeping your hands and fingers in a neutral position while typing.
