How to Sit at Your Desk to Avoid Pain (INFOGRAPHIC)

I wanted to re-blog this wonderful post on preventing neck and back pain whilst working / studying.

I have been experiencing a stiff left shoulder, and some neck pain as a result of my long commutes in-flight, my work posture, and constantly studying at tables and on planes. I do yoga regularly, and got a massage yesterday. These things help, but I recommend you to consult a chiropractor for a diagnosis and natural corrective options (e.g. massage, exercises) if your pain persists.

Our health is rooted in our back, so don’t ignore your spinal health!

    I’m so glad you found this helpful! I also travel often and spend far too much time at a desk. Nothing is worse for your back than sitting all day. I always wonder, with all the technological advances in the world, why can’t they invent a comfortable seat for airliners? Why are they made with the worst alignment possible? I guess I’ll save that for another blog post.

    I do yoga daily and get the occasional massage, but it’s still doesn’t eliminate the pain. I think I’ll take your advice and try a chiropractor. Thanks and I look forward to your posts!

      I have my first appointment with the chiropractor today, so I hope it goes well. I will certainly blog about whether or not I found it to be helpful!
