Low Back Pain by the Numbers
You can make your workplace environment safer for your back. Ask for a chair with a number of different ways to adjust it if you don’t already have one. Adjust it so your back is upright and your feet are flat on the floor. Your computer monitor or monitors should be right at eye level so you don’t have to alter the position of your neck to see your screen. Keep your mouse so that you can reach and use it comfortably. You shouldn’t feel a strain in your muscles or your back when you move the mouse.
