How Chiropractic Neck Pain Treatment Can Prevent Computer Neck Pain
After a long day at the office, do you ever experience neck pain?
You’re not alone. Many people notice neck pain, shoulder tension, and headaches when working at their computer desk.
Thankfully, computer neck pain can be significantly reduced. Plus, your Rohnert Park chiropractor can provide a safe, effective neck pain treatment plan.
How to Prevent Neck Pain While Sitting at Your Computer Each Day
Besides seeing your chiropractor, there are steps you can take right at your desk to reduce the pain you experience.
Start off by improving workplace ergonomics:
- Make sure your computer monitor is at eye level – not too high, not too low
- Invest in a comfortable, supportive, adjustable chair that has a lumbar support
- Use a footrest to ensure that your legs stay bent at a 90-degree angle
Next, schedule regular breaks into your day. Extended sitting leads to pain, but it can also lead to serious health conditions, similar to those caused by obesity and smoking. Stand up and walk around briefly every 30 minutes or so.
Finally, stretching and posture exercises should be done at your desk or at home after work. Such exercises will reduce muscle tension and your risk of spinal misalignment.
