Working While Seated
When working at a desk or in a chair, many would think there would be no negative health risks. However, there can be many common injuries related to repetitive motion such as tendonitis, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and even neck and back injuries. The way to avoid such workplace injuries is to sit keeping proper body position. Keep joints like hips, knees, and ankles open slightly, keep knees at or below the hip joints, keep ankles in front of knees, keep feet flat, keep head aligned with spine, do not slouch, and do not sit for more than fifty minutes at a time. Stand up and take a five-minute walk if need be. Try to avoid bending forward or to the side, and alternate crossed legs.
