BERLIN, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

    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.

    4. Move around the office! Speak personally with your colleagues instead of

sending them emails. Drink a lot of water: it's not only healthy, but it will

keep you moving.

    5. Important: Adjust the desk and chair to your height so that you are

relaxed while sitting. How does that work? Use an online calculator for

ergonomic sitting:
