Ergonomics in the Office to Prevent Neck and Back Pain

According to the Global Burden of Disease Study, back pain is the leading cause of disability globally. One of the main reasons this happens to so many is poor ergonomics. In this article, we will provide you with valuable tips for improving your office environment to keep your back pain-free.

How To Improve Your Office Ergonomics

There are a few ways to improve your ergonomics to help you relieve your back pain and help you be more productive in your daily life:


  • Ensure your computer screen is right at eye level
  • Choose a comfortable office chair that supports your spine and enables you to keep a healthy posture
  • Keep objects that you use at work within close reach
  • Give yourself time to take breaks during the day
  • Use a dedicated footrest if you can’t rest your feet flat on the floor
