Many injuries and sore areas can be attributed to poor posture. This includes sitting at a desk, walking, standing, driving, etc. Here are some tips especially good for sitting at your workstation.
- Sit all the way to the back of the chair so your back is supported
- Keep your feet flat on the floor. If you cannot reach the floor, use a footrest.
- Arm rests should be set so that your forearm can be placed on them easily with a slight bend at the elbow. This will limit shoulder and neck strain.
