Office Worker

Working in the Office

Ironically, the office worker experiences the highest chance of developing lower back pain even when compared to athletes and trade workers.


The natural posture for the human low back is the standing position with occasional bending and lifting. Placing the skeleton in a day-long seated posture is extremely difficult for the vertebral discs and muscles of the spine. Disc bulging and even lower body nerve pinching can be the direct result of too much sitting!

The Solution

Relieving the compression on your discs and the tension in your muscles is key to fighting the pain and damage accompanying office work. Also, learning proper ergonomic sitting and typing as well as how and when to take “micro-breaks,” will prevent re-injury. Easy to follow home exercises are also important in recovering from the pain of your industry.

If you are an office worker and are experiencing pain due to the specific demands of your work please contact the clinic today at 482-4144.
