In case it is your third day that you are an off from office, reason being acute back pain, then you are at the right place where you will get to know all the do’s that must be followed at the time of your work schedule. It has been reported that nearly 93% of the people miss their work days only because of back pain at work. Be it whatever job they are involved in such as a typist, a civil engineer, a technician or a sportsman, suffering from this chronic pain will lessen your daily energies as well as minimize your enthusiasm to perform the best.

Furthermore, back pain complaints are mostly heard by the people in offices. The most common causes of this type of pain are as follows.

Common Causes

  • Lack of movement in between your day
  • Between your ear or your shoulder, holding a telephone or a cellphone
  • Slouching forward in your chair
  • What should be Done to Fight Back Pain!

These are the changes you need to bring in your daily schedule of work routine:

Sitting Area Customization

The way you sit in your chair at the time of work says a lot about whether your spine will be affected by it or not. Hence make sure that your office chairs must have in them a lumbar support that will help keep your spine in the most natural position and thus lessen the chances of back pain.

Get up & Move!

Sitting in one position for straight 8 hours or more, will not only tire you but will eventually affect your back and thus land you into chronic back pain condition. Hence to avoid this, make sure that you do not sit in one position for long, instead take breaks, and stretch yourself.

An ergonomics review will do it!

Probably you might be unaware that the place where you sit is not good for your health condition whatsoever. Hence for your own betterment and to eliminate the risk of back pain at work, request for an ergonomic review of your workstation. Perhaps this will be enough to cure your pain and erase the need of taking a day off from work.
