You may not realize just how much your daily activities can affect your body, particularly if you work in an office or spend long hours on back painyour feet. Drs. L. Neil King, Kelly Groves, Mark Alexander and Andrew Vaky, your Gaithersburg, Potomac, Urbana and Clarksburg, MD chiropractors at King Chiropractic explain how your job could be causing those aches and pains.

Sitting and standing are more dangerous than you may realize

It might seem as if sitting and standing are fairly innocuous activities, but spending too much time in one position can stress your body. Remaining in one position too long can stress your bones, joints and muscles, which can cause body aches, back and neck pain, headaches and other symptoms. The problem can become even worse if the chair or desk you use isn't ergonomically sound. When you sit in a chair that doesn't support your back adequately, you'll pay the price long after you leave the office.

Good posture is more likely to be neglected the longer you sit or stand

When you sit or stand for long periods of time, it's easy to slip into poor posture. Unfortunately, failing to maintain good posture can affect nearly every part of your body, including your muscles, joints and ligaments. You may also feel tired and might experience breathing and digestion problems if you have a posture problem.

A visit to chiropractor can help reduce job-related aches and pains

Many job-related aches and pains can be relieved by correcting misalignments in your spinal column.
