When looking at lifestyle changes, Centennial Qi Therapies chiropractors are interested in what we do during our usual day to day schedule. Many of us in NSW are working at home due to the long-standing coronavirus lockdown. Sitting in front of a computer can damage our posture and create back pain without the proper setup. Here are some simple but effective changes to assist with ensuring that your home setup seating positions are optimised for your spine:
Start by sitting as close as possible to your workstation with the intention of having your upper arms parallel to your spine. Place your hands in a rested state on your keyboard. If your elbows are not at a 90-degree angle, change the height of your chair.
