How to avoid Back Pain when You Spend more than 8 Hours in the Office

Businessman suffering from backache at workplace

If you spend at least 8 hours a day standing at your desk, you may have probably experienced back, shoulders or neck pain. Back pain does not usually have a single cause, but most often it is linked with poor posture, lack of exercise, weakened muscles and sometimes specific, more serious conditions that may have a medical cause.

Staying active is most often the solution, even if you may have a bit of discomfort at first. It’s important to stay active, gradually increase the activities level and do regular exercise. A healthy diet and supplements can also improve your condition. Swimming, walking or yoga are useful to improve posture and flexibility. Sometimes physiotherapy may also help.

Practical advice to release stress and anxiety:

  • Every 30 minutes take a few minutes’ break to walk or do some basic stretching exercises. Or walk to refill your glass with water
  • Make sure your chair is comfortable and adjust its height
  • Improve your strength and posture with regular exercises
  • Diffuse aromatherapy essential oils to improve your mood, focus and well-being
  • Try heat therapy for quick pain relief

The far infrared heating (FIR) pad systems from Dr Clarks with the deep heat technology allows the infrared heat to penetrate up to 2 inches – that is 20 times deeper than conventional pads for long-lasting pain relief. Unlike regular heating pads, the FIR pads have been designed to minimize harmful electromagnetic fields as much as possible. The heat technology accelerates blood circulation and reduces inflammation.
