- Working at a computer can cause back, neck and shoulder pains, headache, eyestrain and overuse injuries of the arms and hands.
- You can help avoid computer-related injuries with proper furniture, better posture and good working habits.
If you are experiencing neck pain, headaches, shoulder or arm pain, these are very common computer related injuries. Muscle and joint problems can be caused and even made worse by poor workstation and desk design, bad posture and sitting for extended periods of time.
Sitting in the same place or position for long periods of time can cause poor circulation to your muscles in your back, bones, tendons and ligaments and in most instances causing stiffness and pain in your neck area.
