of Belgians will suffer from low back pain sooner or later in their lives. A significant portion of which is attributed to incorrect sitting posture.
Consequences of poor sitting posture
Many pain-related problems resulting from an incorrect sitting posture can be grouped under one term: RSI. Repetitive Strain Injury, described as ‘a physical condition caused by repetitive overloading’. It is a general term for various pain complaints resulting from chronic overuse. This is only a part of the possible consequences of poor sitting posture. Sitting poorly puts the greatest pressure on the lumbar intervertebral discs, more than standing and more than lying down. This causes disc-related issues such as degeneration and eventually herniation.
A perfectly adjustable work environment is ergonomically very important. A considerate amount of the labour force sits for 8 hours and beyond in a poor or unsuitable office chair, resulting in a bad sitting posture. As a result, numerous (chronic) physical complaints arise.
Tension in the neck: The pain in the neck can radiate to the shoulders and back. Neck and shoulder pain (40%) and back pain (44%) are the most common complaints.
Tendinitis: This tendon inflammation is not only painful but also restricts movement.
Lumbago: Lower back pain that can radiate to the legs.
Knee inflammation: bursitis not only causes pain but also swelling of the front of the knee.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: The compression of the nerve in the hand causes pain and/or numbness in the first 3 fingers.”
Inflammation in the tendons of the hand: this causes pain in the wrist and/or forearm.
Tennis elbow: Condition on the outside of the elbow. This pain radiates to the wrist and fingers.
The correct sitting posture
In order to avoid unnecessary discomfort and pain, it is important to sit in a healthy and dynamic manner. With a high-quality ergonomic office chair that includes lumbar support and height-adjustable features, you can adopt the correct sitting posture and ensure that you work pain-free and ergonomically. Here are some tips to achieve a good and customized ergonomic sitting position in your home or work environment.

Due to technological advancements are laptops, smartphones, and tablets causing health issues to the neck or back too.

New studies show that standing for two to four hours a day has a positive impact on your health. Standing at your workstation is not always easy or feasible. That’s why we should all have access to a standing desk, allowing us to choose between sitting and standing while working at any given moment.
Furthermore, employees should be given the opportunitie to take regular breaks from sitting and walk around. To compensate for the lack of movement and reduce absenteeism, occupational physicians recommend the so-called “ergonomics formula”: 50% of work hours should be spent sitting, 25% standing, and the remaining time in motion. We recommend standing for a maximum of 1 hour continuously while working, to avoid other strains: variety is the spice of life.
