Good Workplace Posture is Important

by admin on March 24, 2016

Good Structure=good function; therefore, poor structure= poor function. Here are some postural recommendations to make your workplace optimal for good body posture and function:

-Sit upright & aligned with your ears and shoulders centered over your hips.

– Sit centered and close to your equipment to avoid leaning and stretching to reach the desk and keyboard or other equipment.

– If possible, use a phone headset to avoid balancing the phone between your ear and shoulder. This will help eliminate muscle stress and vertebrae misalignment.

– Sit with your feet flat on the floor and your knees a little lover than your hips.

– Periodic movement and stretching is highly advised, even for a couple of minutes at your desk. This helps prevent muscle and spinal stagnation and improves blood flow & can help increase work productivity.

These two minutes an hour are associated with a 33% lower risk of death so let’s all keep moving.
