5-Point Proper Computer Posture Checklist to Avoid Neck Pain at Your Desk

Reverse neck and back pain by taking charge of proper sitting posture and computer ergonomics.

  1. Keep your feet flat on the floor. You may need to buy a new adjustable desk or chair to compensate for height differences. Most set-ups aren’t designed for tall or short folks.
  2. Position your monitor at eye-level.
  3. Use a chair with armrests to support your forearms. Your elbows should form a 90-degree angle.
  4. Make sure your chair has decent lumbar support. Sit with your back flush against the seat – don’t perch.
  5. Keep your keyboard positioned at an angle so your wrists aren’t bent.

When you sit for extended periods of time, your abdominal and back muscles weaken. Not only does this put you at risk for injury, but it also makes it more challenging to manage proper sitting posture.

Chiropractic adjustments can help realign your spine while simple exercises can help strengthen your core and back muscles.
