Research shows that excessive sitting is a major risk factor in over half of the top 7 killers in the U.S.: heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and many cancers. Not only does sitting cut off proper circulation and cause the heart to pump less efficiently, it can also damage the spine. The spinal column is like the super highway of the central nervous system. When your spine is unhappy and even damaged, that relationship is disrupted to the detriment of your health. In a city like Denver or Lone Tree, where we’re famous for fitness and outdoor activity, it’s important to take care of your body so this doesn’t happen. Stretch and move about for a few minutes each half hour, or plan a short excursion downtown on your lunch break. While working, a user-friendly workstation can help you work and feel better.
Why an Ergonomic Office?Tired, under-active workers in the throes of chronic pain do not make for productive employees. Business healthcare costs are higher while output is lower when workers lead immobile, lethargic existences. We already spend time lying down while we sleep, sitting during our commute, sitting while we eat, and even sitting during much of our leisure time. Sitting for the bulk of the workday significantly adds up to problems like chronic back pain, cardiovascular disease, repetitive strain disorders, lowered metabolism, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and eyestrain.
Ergonomic Office EssentialsErgonomic devices operate as parts of a whole to offer both form and function to the user.
• Switching to a Standing Desk gives you the option to change from seated to standing positions with ease. Studies show that more time using a standing desk reduces back and neck pain and improves mood and energy levels.
• Eliminate back pain and promote better posture with an ergonomic office chair. Look for chairs that provide lumbar support so your spine stays aligned and you stay pain-free.
• Go easy on your eyes with monitor arms, laptop raisers, and ergonomic lighting. Computer screens should be adjusted to the user, and poor placement can lead to shoulder and neck pain, blurred vision, eyestrain, and headaches. For correct monitor placement, invest in monitor arms or laptop raisers. A directional task light with adjustable brightness further relaxes the eyes and remedies the limitations of overhead lighting.
• Incorporating ergonomic footrests helps keep the legs active, reducing swelling and encouraging better circulation. Footrests also shift your body’s weight distribution to keep your spine in check.
Flexibility is keyWhether your add simple stretches to your routine or say goodbye to prolonged sitting by switching to an adjustable Standing Desk, varying your body positions throughout the day increases the quality of your life and health. For a more productive and comfortable workday, plan a trip to Relax The Back Park Meadows in Lone Tree for a personal assessment.
