Some time ago, I was asked about relieving back pain caused by office work. I think the best way to relieve a problem is to stop the problem from ever happening. This can be done in a number of ways. Water’s Edge Chiropractic PLC offers the following tips on how to relieve office back pain.

First, make sure that your monitor is at eye level. This keeps you from slouching over to read the screen. When you have proper posture, you help protect your back.

Keep your shoulders back. This keeps your back straight also.

Your mouse and keyboard should be easily reached when you type or navigate on your computer. No reaching! I prefer a roller ball instead of a mouse to navigate the web. It doesn’t require any reaching and you can hold it without having to lift your arm.

If you need a mouse and can’t make the roller ball switch, I suggest getting a wireless mouse. With a wireless mouse, you don’t have to worry about pulling the cords with you. You can keep the mouse closer to you without yanking the cord out of the computer or knocking items over with the mouse cord.
