3) The monitor. Ideally this should be approx 50-60 cm away from your face. The middle of the screen should be nearly horizontal to your eyes. This is so that your head isn’t positioned up or down for long periods of time.
4) Postural breaks. Remember it only takes 20 minutes for the tiny postural ligaments & muscles to fatigue. Stand up after 20 minutes and do a clockwise circle, then an anti-clockwise circle. If you have the space then do a figure 8. This will activate left & right muscles evenly, then you are in good shape to sit for another 20 minutes without slouching or increasing your chances of causing spinal/muscle pain.
I hope this information proves useful for you with regards to preventing spinal pain/injury.
If you have already injured yourself or know someone who has, feel free to make an appointment with us at our clinic to resolve it. Remember, don’t tell my accountant that I’m helping you prevent injury and saving you money.
Have a great year,
Dr Colin Woodbury – Doctor of Chiropractic
