Change your position
High on the priority list is making sure your work station (chair, keyboard, mouse) positions are all adjustable, Wilcox says. Periodically change your sitting position to allow different muscles to assist you. If your chair is height adjustable make sure your feet are able to rest flat on the floor, your thigh is either parallel to the floor or your hips are higher than your knees. If tall individuals sit in a low chair and their knees are higher than their hips it places a significant amount of stress on the hamstrings, pelvis, and lower back.
