Proper Computer Posture to Prevent Back Pain

People spend a lot of time every day on the computer and that can lead to a lot of back problems. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says there are options to make it a little bit better for them.

He points out it is important to have the computer up to a more 90 degree angle and the monitor should be at the eye level to avoid stress on the different segments of neck and back.

About standing desk, he says it will be for people that have a disk problem; however, it is not good either to be standing up for eight hours.
