Sitting at a desk all day, operating a computer for long stretches of time, is a relatively new behavior.
Over the past 30 years, tens of millions of us have been used as lab rats in an unplanned experiment that is testing how we respond to long stretches of sitting, in spine-crushing chairs, in high-stress jobs, doing repetitive actions, on poorly designed machines.
The results so far don’t look too good. Back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive strain injuries, obesity, and other consequences of office work are at epidemic levels.
Naturally, I offer massage for office workers, but I have also written a lot on how to stay fit and healthy at work at my ”Office Fitness” website and continue to write there on both office fitness and the history of office work. A also offer engaging and informative Office Fitness Talks for organizations and events.
