Working environment can play a big part in our health and wellbeing as we spend most of our hours at work.
Back pain is one of the two biggest causes of absence from work other than stress. It is mainly due to poor posture or awkward twisting movements i.e. bending or reaching, or a combination of the two.
If you are spending long periods at work without a break, or if you are sitting on an uncomfortable chair or at a poorly arranged workstation you are more likely to have repetitive strain injury (RSI). It could also be due to incorrect technique while using a computer keyboard and mouse, mobile phone or hand-held device.
Sitting hurts the back more than standing. To protect your back at work you need to sit smart by getting a chair that provides support for your middle and lower back. The right position is your knees at 90 degrees and your spine at a neutral posture.

You need to make sure you change your posture as often and not sit in the same position for long. Frequent short breaks are better than fewer long ones for your back. This gives your muscles a chance to relax and prevent you from becoming stiff and tense.
