Sit-down Desks and Stand-up Desks
Whether at the office or working remotely, having a desk is a staple to ordinary work life. In fact, this is where we spend most of our time. On a normal work day we spend an average of 8 hours slouching over our desks, which may result in lower back pain. Companies have come out with many technological advances to avoid back pain, including stand-up desks. The issue with stand-up desks is that standing for long durations of time can also cause back pain. To avoid this, it is recommended to alternate from a seated to a standing posture every 30 minutes to avoid back discomfort. It may be uncomfortable to transition to a standing desk at first, but the results will be beneficial for your overall spine health.
