Many people suffer from chronic neck and back pain, but it’s easy to see why. The average American sits for at least 9 hours a day, with some studies putting the number as high as 11! When we sit for long periods without any breaks or exercise, our muscles become tense and stiff which can lead to discomfort in the spine. Here are some tips on how you can reduce your back and neck pain when you’re stuck sitting for long periods of time:
1) Take regular breaks
2) Get up and stretch
3) Use an ergonomic chair
4) Try using a desk the can accommodate sitting and standing
