We’ve collectively taken an evolutionary step backwards, thanks to our computers. Our posture when we’re using our computers at home or at the office sucks!
We use our computers so much, that ‘Carpal Tunnel Syndrome’ has become one of the most common physical problems many are suffering.
The treatment from the medical community is generally surgery, even when you have a moderate case of CTS and it’s generally caused when you forget to sit up straight.
How can you avoid this common problem? Start by positioning your desk, your chair and yourself up for success.
Keep the chair at a height to make your knees bend at a 90 degree angle; keep your feet flat and make sure your wrists stay as close to parallel to the floor as possible.
Laptop keyboards are decent but if possible, get a wireless keyboard and raise your laptop screen up. Looking down at laptop screens is another painful problem.
