Many people experience it, but do nothing about it. Computer aches and pains. You need to work at your computer all day long at work. Most likely, you’ve felt some type of ache or strain in your back, neck, or hands when typing or sitting at your desk. What can you do – it is part of the normal day-to-day operations at work, right? Wrong!
Joe Silverman, CEO of New York Computer Help, recently spotlighted in the New York Post, works long hours to ensure customers are satisfied. He started feeling aches and pains while typing on his computer. Joe resolved these nuisances by taking breaks, stretching, and setting up his workplace setup in an ergonomically efficient manner. Also, he goes to the Dorit Baxter Day Spa to get a tech neck massage which alleviates his muscle tightness and aches.
If you want to be on the right track to pain-free computer typing, make sure you do the following:
-Take 5-minutes breaks every 1.5 – 2 hours. While you’re on computer break, stretch and close your eyes to re-energize.
-Ensure your arms are not stretched while typing on your keyboard or desk items
-Sit up and don’t slouch.
-Make sure the light is not directly in your eyes to prevent glare and light sensitivity
-Pamper yourself! Get a tech neck massage or another treatment dedicated to computer-itis.
