Tips, infographics, and free online calculators to avoid back pain  

80% of all office workers suffer from back pain or herniated discs at some point in their careers, mostly due to incorrect posture at work. Here are some simple ways to prevent it. 

  1. Place your computer monitor at least one arm's length away. If it's too close, you will create tension in your shoulders and neck.
  2. The monitor should be set so that your eyes are at a downward angle. This helps to relieve strain on your neck and your eyes.
  3. Sit with the pelvis tilted slightly forwards. Ergonomic chairs and seat cushions help to retain the backs' natural posture, providing relief to the discs and muscles.
