Board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. Hooman Melamed shares three tips to protect your spine, neck and back and hopefully, prevent a trip to his office!
Tip No. 1: Get moving!
“Our bodies were made to be moving around,” Dr. Melamed says. So, if you’re sitting or standing for an extended period of time, make sure to get up, walk around and stretch regularly.
Tip No. 2: Keep your neck and back aligned.
Cradling the receiver between your neck and shoulder during conference calls or constantly bending your neck to stare at your smartphone can cause major problems, including pinched nerves and strained muscles. Dr. Melamed says proper neck and spine alignment is critically important in preventing damage, so be sure to employ proper workplace ergonomics, including using a headset for calls.
Tip No. 3: Kick off those high heels!
Wearing high heels for extended periods of time can lead to ankle pain, long-term hip and back problems and can even affect your neck. Dr. Melamed recommends bringing a pair of flats with you and stresses the importance of replacing older footwear.
