Do you suffer from low back pain while at work? You are not alone. Fifty-four percent of Americans who experience low back pain spend the majority of their workday sitting. Although your back pain may not be caused by what body positions you are in while at work, it is no coincidence that back pain and sitting are related.
Sitting posture (and standing posture if you have a standing desk option) is important to maintain a pain-free low back, but what is even more important is moving frequently during your work day. If you happen to have a sit-stand desk, changing positions every 1-2 hours is recommended.
Going on short walks during your day is also a great way to change up your body position but sometimes the work day doesn’t afford you a lot of extra time, and we understand that! So we created this video to teach you our top 4 exercises you can do at your desk to keep moving, decrease pain, and improve your productivity.
