neck painDo you suffer from chronic neck pain?

Does your neck ache after a long day at the office?

If so, chances are that you are sitting improperly at your computer desk. 

Here, you will learn how to avoid neck pain while working at your computer, as well as what chiropractic care can offer for neck pain treatment. 

3 Tips to a Healthy Neck at Work

In order to maintain a healthy neck at work, you need to keep in mind some essential rules to protect your neck.

1. Take Mini Breaks

It is important to stop and take 5-10 minute breaks at least once an hour. Moving around every so often helps to avoid muscle stiffness building up in your neck and shoulders as you work on your computer. 

2. Practice Proper Posture

Proper posture is important as it protects your neck and back from strain. 

To practice proper posture, sit up straight with your shoulders back and feet flat on the floor. Be mindful of your posture throughout the day, as your body may start to slouch naturally.  

3. Adjust Your Monitor

Always make sure your computer monitor is at eye level. If your computer screen is too low or too high, you risk straining your neck from the unnatural positions.
