If you sit at a desk all day long for work, you may think that you are less likely to experience back pain than a manual laborer. However, one of the primary causes of back pain in the workplace is sitting for hours at a time. We’re going to take a look at 3 ways to make your office a more back-friendly environment.
Lower back pain often starts in the neck. When the C1 and C2 are misaligned, the whole back compensates to keep the head properly balanced. Correcting this misalignment at the top of the spine often allows the rest of the back to shift back into place. This can relieve pain on a more long-term basis (as opposed to pain medication which only provides temporary relief). To learn more, find an upper cervical chiropractor in your area and schedule a consultation.
