POSITION YOUR COMPUTER MONITOR CORRECTLY- Sunday, July 24, 2016

          POSITION YOUR COMPUTER MONITOR CORRECTLY

  Hopefully, you don’t sit at a computer for longer than 50 minutes. However, if you do, make sure the computer monitor is positioned appropriately to prevent any back problems. Be certain the monitor is positioned so that there is no glare on the screen. Second, place the monitor so that your head is not too far forward or backward, and you don’t have to squint while looking at the screen. Please see the above picture for proper seated posture, while working at a computer.

ROCK BACKWARD AND FORWARD WHILE STANDING- Friday, July 01, 2016

ROCK BACKWARD AND FORWARD WHILE STANDING  

                

              FIGURE 1- FORWARD                 FIGURE 1A - BACKWARD

Evidence shows that you can develop chronic low back pain from excessive standing. This chronic low back pain seems to result from a lack of movement, specifically forward and backward, while standing. As a result, I suggest rocking backward and forward on the balls and heels of your feet. Please refer to FIGURES 1 and 1A. Rocking backward and forward is not something you do constantly. I recommend every five minutes you rock backward and forward for about 60 seconds. Again, there is no rule set in stone as to the frequency with which you should rock forward and backward, as it is based on your feeling.
