LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – As many Americans start another week of remote work, the aches and pains of working from home can set in.
Spine specialists at Baylor College of Medicine say good posture is essential.
If you don’t have an office chair, sit at a table or counter and use a pillow for lumbar support. Doctors recommend staying away from sofas no matter how badly they call you.
“Most sofas may not provide the same kind of support and contour as an ergonomic office chair, so your back and neck can stay in a fixed, stressed position for a long time, creating strain on your back and neck. certain tissues which can then cause pain. Said Dr. Wyatt Kupperman, assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Baylor.
To maintain good posture, sit on your office chair until your feet are resting flat on the floor or lightly resting in front of you.
