Quick Tip:

QUICK TIP: Do you get lower back pain or neck pain when seated at your desk?

The first thing to check is that your knees are slightly lower than your hips. This will improve your seated posture immediately and also transfer weight through your legs to the floor instead of through your lower back.
If when adjusting your chair height your feet are not flat on the floor you will need a footrest. If your thighs are too tight to the underside of your desk you need some desk raiser blocks to lift your desk.

If your pain continues or you have a long term back problem we can visit your office to identify the best solution for you.
