If you are experiencing back pain and/or if sitting causes significant back pain, please use a kneel chair or a sit-stand work station or stand and work with the laptop on a box with the top of the laptop just below your eye level. You need to move every 15 minutes while standing.

Some of you may find lying down in bed provide temporary relief when the pain is heightened to reduce the low back pain or headaches.

Applying a warm wheat pack can be beneficial or a topical cream from your chemist.

From our research, very often it is not only the length of time you sit, but how you respond to people, your work deadlines and the demands placed on you in this uncertain climate can cause muscle induced pain.

Take Care of your back, you only have one.
