Spending many hours without movement can lead to muscular and skeletal problems. These problems get worse over time. Having bad posture while studying or working will hurt the spine of those who spend a lot of time in front of the computer.
In theory, an eight-hour workday is established. In reality, workers spend more office hours in front of a computer without the possibility of moving. This situation could aggravate certain conditions over time, mostly if you do not take care of your posture with ergonomic furniture and workspaces.
The main cause of recurrent back ailments is the adoption of bad postures during work time. Back pain gets more intense by the constant use of computers and taking the same seat every day.
Some of the long-term diseases that affect the spine are:
- Mid-back pain: Severe pain in the thoracic region of the spine. It usually occurs in those who do not have an ergonomic chair and must work for long periods at their desks. It is often confused with simple back pain, which can spread to the sides or chest.
- Cervical pain: The excess of muscular effort can cause this condition. In most cases, having an incorrect posture for a long time can lead to neck pain. It manifests with tingling, weakness, loss of mobility, headaches, dizziness, or lack of balance.
- Kyphoosis: It is a curvature of the spine. It appears as a deformation that affects those who work for long periods in not ergonomic chairs. It causes pain, fatigue, sensitivity, and, in very severe cases, chest pain.
- Torticollis: It occurs when the cervical nerves become inflamed. One of the most common causes is adopting inappropriate postures when working or studying, and even when sleeping in a position that does not allow the neck muscles to relax.
- Epicondylitis: It is the inflammation of the tendons that connect the forearm and hand muscles with the epicondyle. It is a common elbow injury in those who practice activities that involve repetitive wrist movement, like the constant use of the computer mouse and keyboard without proper support.
