Does Your Back Hurt at the Computer – New Services
Does your back, wrist or neck hurt while working at the computer? If yes, it's not surprising. The U.S. is becoming a nation of knowledge workers, and a majority of the communication and research time is done sitting at our desks using our computers. Most computers, especially laptops, are not made to support of the natural human body. The result is pain based on repeatedly stress on a particular area of the body.
As a professional organizer, I have found that the chiropractic industry is evolving to support knowledge workers (supposedly metro Washington, D.C. has the highest per capita of knowledge workers in the US). Forget the stereotype that you go see a chiropractor and they will automatically shift something in your back. Today many of them will come to your place of work, evaluate your workstation (desk and computer) set-up and recommend changes. They can even suggest alternative office furniture (e.g., ergonomic chair), if needed. Some chiropractors provide this as a free service.
Address your body's aches or consider getting a proactive evaluation before the onset of pain.
