Feeling the Pain

Aches and discomfort are all too common for those who work at a desk every day. While a great ergonomic chair can be game-changing, we need relief — stat! Check out these tips and tricks that can help improve your posture and keep you sitting healthy all day.

Headache or Jaw Pain?

- Check for forward head position.
- Check monitor distance from eyes, should be an arm's distance away.
- Adjust/increase text size.
- Try blue light glasses to decrease eye strain.

Right or Left Shoulder Pain?

- Check for twisting at neck.
- Work surface too high or too low will cause muscle tension. (Solution: height adjustable table or keyboard tray.)
- If the pain is on mousing side, check the mouse distance, get elbow closer to body.
- Avoid slouching, roll shoulders back.

Hands Tingling or Numb?

- Check wrist angle, should be straight from elbow to fingertips.
- Check for twisting at the neck.
- Check for high contact pressure on wrist or forearm from surface/edge.

Low Back Pain?

- Check chair height. Knees should be approximately 90 degrees, thighs parallel to floor.
- Check slouching toward monitor. Sit with back against chair, pull monitor to arm-distance away.
- Check if seat pan depth is preventing use of backrest.

Feet or Lower Legs Numb?

- Check seat pan depth. Keep 2 to 3 finger thickness distance between back of knee and chair.
- Check chair height. Knees should be approximately 90 degrees, thighs parallel to floor.
- Feet support on floor or footrest. (A stack of books work in a pinch!)
