Standup Desk – Everyone Is Using Them – Should You Have One Too?

Do you sit at a desk most of the day? Do you have reoccurring neck, shoulder and or back pain? Does the pain wake you up at night? Maybe it is limiting your mobility?

I frequently see patients for neck, shoulder and back pain and I often hear from them that they sit at a desk for extended periods of time.

The new trend in offices is to have a stand up desk. While it is certainly better to have the option to sit and stand throughout the workday, the standup desk will not necessarily solve the problem.

Bad posture can happen in sitting and standing. A lot of times people stand at their computer and after a short time the head is forward, shoulders are rounded forward and the upper back and neck are hunched. You have to be aware of what’s going on with your head and shoulders.

So whether you’re sitting or standing, pay attention to your posture!
