Work giving you a pain in the neck?

November 26, 2009

Have you got a pain in the neck at your workplace?  No, not that annoying person.  Neck, upper back pain, and headaches is a common complaint among office workers, especially women.

This repetitive strain injury is caused by working long periods of time (8-5 jobs) in bad postures with a computer.  Your head weighs about 8-10 lbs and the muscles in the back of your neck are under tremendous stress if you’re looking down at a desk for 8 hours every day.

Want a simple solution?  Get a copyholder.  A copy what?  It’s basically a paper stand that keeps your work at eye level and takes the strain off your neck.  Very inexpensive solution that your neck will thank you for and you will be less stressed at the end of your work day.
