If you do, you may be working at your desk the wrong way!

Here are 3 different tips to keep your neck pain at bay and how chiropractic care is the perfect solution for neck pain treatment.

3 Tips for Neck Pain Treatment at Work

Implement these tips into your office routine to get significant relief from neck pain:

Practice Proper Posture

Having correct posture is critical for reducing neck pain. To practice proper posture, sit up tall and straight with your shoulders back and your feet flat on the floor. Unhunch your ears from your shoulders and make sure that your lower back touches the back of your chair. You will naturally slouch as the day goes on, so be mindful and correct your posture when you start to get sloppy

Take Mini-Breaks and Stretch Often

Take the time to take mini-breaks during your workday. One, 5-10 minute break every hour is wise. On your break, consider stretching at your desk, or walking to your car to induce blood flow and release tension from your neck and shoulders. 

Adjust Your Computer Monitor

Make sure your computer monitor is always at eye level as you work. This position ensures that you are neither looking too far up or down – which can put a massive strain on your neck and cause soreness and stiffness later in the day.
