Are you feeling a tightness in your lower back? Do you sit at a desk all day long and feel muscle tension in your neck? Do you want to fix this problem?
Looking after your body is very important especially when most jobs require you to be seated at a desk all day. Being in a stressful position for a prolonged period of time places significant pressure on your back muscles and spinal discs. This leads to discomfort in the lower back and may potentially seriously aggravate any pain you may already have.
It’s important to tackle this problem by using a few tips, tricks and specifically designed chiropractic products to give you the everyday relieve you deserve.
Identifying the Pain
It’s key to identify the warning signs of back pain. Back pain may be the result of poorly designed desk chairs found in many office environments as the backward design of most chairs and car seats forces your posture to form a slumping position. This can cause poor posture and pain that starts in the neck and moves downwards into the upper and lower back. Other signs of tension may include tiredness or a tingling feeling in your hands and/or signs of headaches/migraines.
Get up and Move Around
As you type away at a desk all day, your muscles will tire and be a cause of slouching, slumping and other poor posture etiquette, adding extra pressure onto the neck and back. In order to maintain a relaxed yet supported posture, you should change positions frequently throughout the day. One way is to take a break from a seated position every half hour or hour for 2-5 minutes in order to stand, stretch and walk to reinvigorate yourself and your muscles.
Thinking about a lower back support?
Buying a replacement ergonomic posture chair can be an expensive and unnecessary splurge, which is why investing in a lower back support can be a much more affordable option. Lower back supports are a suitable option as they are easy to use, are portable, can correct the posture and reduce tension and pain in the lumbar region.
We have many lower back support products, which come in a variety of shapes and sizes to best suit you needs, which can be purchased online or in any one of our clinics.
