Your posture takes care of your health at work. Everyone concentrates more on different products and accessories for staying active and healthy. The gadgets and technologies in the health fields are growing in numbers, but we completely forget to work on our posture to eliminate pain and discomforts. Using a standing desk proves to be very helpful for improving posture. We have explained everything in detail here.
The adverse health effects of poor posture:
Did you know how we sit, stand, and work and have a great role in keeping our body structure perfect and balanced? Poor posture develops many health problems; some are even severe ones. Pain in your back and neck are very common. Your posture can also affect the abdominal organ. It can even cause breathing issues and can lower the oxygen intake in our body.
So, bad posture deteriorates our health and silently takes away the strength of our body. The National Institute of Health has cited that back pain is a common medical problem in the U.S.
A healthy spine has three curves – a slight forward curve in the neck, a backward curve in the upper portion, and a forward curve in the lower part. If any of the curve lines get disturbed, it causes pain. Your posture can be responsible for damaging the curve lines of spines. So, if you are still not aware of your posture, it is not too late to learn about it. The more you have information, the better your efforts will be to correct your posture.
Do you experience neck pain often? Your posture can also cause strain in your neck. There are some signs of poor posture. Hunching over your keyboard, keeping your shoulders forward, crooking your neck while talking over your phone, and other posture mistakes cause many health issues. Due to the strain in your neck muscles, you will be unable to move your neck easily. Headaches are another sign of strain in your neck muscle.
How to improve your posture?
Standing desks are the most common choice for improving your posture at work. These desks have many health benefits as they reduce your sitting hours. The height-adjustability feature allows you to set your desk according to your comfortable height requirement.
Pay attention to the ergonomics while using a standing desk. You need an ergonomic chair with your desk that helps you sit with your back resting on the chair’s backrest, your feet flat on the floor, your thighs parallel to the floor, and more.
While standing, stand straight comfortably. Ensure that your desk height must match the height of your elbows. Bend your elbows at a 90-degree angle while using the keyboard. The use of a standing desk needs ergonomic knowledge, which your regular desk does not. You must learn more about where to place your monitor, how high the desk must be, and more things.
How to measure your posture:
You must know that your posture is correct or not. There are some ways to assess your posture.
Stand up against the wall:
Stand keeping your back to the wall and your heels three inches from the wall. Place one hand against the back of your neck, keeping the back of the hand to the wall. Keep your other hand against your lower back, keeping the palm to the wall. When you easily move your hands forward and backward for an inch or two, you can adjust your posture.
Look in your mirror:
Stand in front of a full-length mirror with your hands straight and ears level. If your shoulders, hips, and spaces between your arms and sides are even, you have a good posture.
