Nadine’s top tips for better back health with your tech - Summertown Clinic

With devices and new technologies now a staple in both homes and workplaces, Nadine Harrison (Chiropractor) shares her top tips for keeping mobile and your back healthy…

Poor work posture
  • Change your posture often: there is no such thing as perfect posture, we need to adapt regularly throughout the day. We will tend to fall into a slouched position with prolonged sitting. Try setting yourself a timer to buzz every 30 minutes, or pop a post-it note on your desk, reminding you to sit up straight.
  • Get moving: You back loves to stay active, so try and work in some regular movement each day. A short walk at lunchtime, the stairs instead of the lift, throwing a ball around with your kids instead of evening TV. A little goes a long way. The key is to build up gradually.
  • Check your workspace: If your job primarily involves sitting at a desk and staring at a computer for hours at a time, make sure your desk is set up to support a comfortable position. This is different for everyone so if you don’t feel comfortable in your current set up, try altering the height of your chair or screen.
  • Don’t delay: Aches and pains resolve better and quicker, the sooner we take action.
