Back pain is one of the most common injuries that often employees complain about, and the reason being for this is because of the fact that they are glued to their chair for hours together. One may not be fully aware of the stress that the spinal cord is experiencing and this is one of the reasons for extreme back pains and injuries.

The Problem:

When you’re sitting in office in a static posture for a very long time, it is very natural that you will hunch or slouch down in the chair. You may not realize this yourself, but you can observe your co-workers around you do it. If this is not dealt with precautionary measures, there could be serious injuries causing lower back pains, or worsen an existing back problem.

What can you do?

On an occasional basis, take a couple of minutes from your work schedule to do the following:stretch_pose

  • Cross your arms behind your back, and stretch your shoulders and chest.
  • Alternately, you can simply stand up and sit down, or take a small walk around the office.

This will help your body to maintain a correct posture and relieve your spine from constant stress.

While you do this small exercise, it will be beneficial for you to listen to Guided Sessions on zoojoo.be. If you’re away from your desk, perhaps you’re taking a walk, you can listen to the sessions using our mobile app as well. You can download the app here.
