Computer ergonomics and creating a comfortable posture
If you struggle with persistent back pain, poor posture may be to blame. One of the most common causes of poor posture is time spent sitting in front of a computer. Whether it’s during the workday or at home relaxing, the time you spend hunched over the computer may cause lingering back pain, headaches and other health problems. Practicing proper computer ergonomics can help.
In this short video, physical therapist Aileen Cuenca-Williams and a volunteer demonstrate where to place your feet, forearms and more while using the computer for optimal comfort. Her advice is easy to follow at the office, at home and even out at your favorite coffeeshop or library location.
