Sitting for long hours can take it’s toll on our bodies.Right now Hubby’s shoulder is hurting. I went through the same thing several months ago. I am blaming the mouse. Well, not directly but it was the wrongful posture and position of my computer keyboard and screen.
Also neck pain was enhanced because of poor posture and position of the screen. So if you are going to blog or already blogging watch your food intake as how you computer screen. keyboard and chair is positioned.
You know what you can do? Google ergonomics and look at the pictures of the right way to sit, etc.
I am referring you to this link with pictures that will be on the f rst page and is very good.
Ray already made more changes today. He lowered the mouse so that it was the same level as his keyboard. This way he does not have to keep his arm in a position higher than the keyboard while working that mouse.
We need to talk more about this in future posts.
I learned a lot about ergonomics when I worked at a university that provided a free analysis. I had everything wrong. Height of computer, position of mouse and chair. It is really important to get this stuff right, for the long term!
Thanks for the reminder Rosie.
I’ve been treated for Carpal Tunnel. No fun. I worked with a great Chiropractor and changed my desk. Boy what a difference!
Great tips in this article. Many pain syndromes can be prevented just by simple postural correction and proper ergonomic training. Thanks 🙂
I was actually rubbing my sore neck when I came across your article. The body eventually reminds you when you spend too much time in the same position.
