3 Techniques
for Preventing Neck Pain at Work

Work Station Setup
Head & Neck Posture
Sustained poor posture increases tension on joints, muscles, ligaments and discs, which can become painful
60/60 Rule
The rule is simple:
For every minute of immobility, perform one second of movement based activity.

Ex: After 30' of work, take 30s to head to the copier or water fountain for a change in position

Can be 20/20, 30/30 or 60/60

Pick what works for you!
Your goal
A straight line connecting your trunk, shoulders and your ears
• With your arms resting at your sides, your elbows should be slightly higher than your desk/keyboard to prevent the shoulders from “shrugging” up.

• Your screen distance and font size should be appropriate for you so that you do not push your head forward towards the screen or squint to see the text.

• Your mouse should be close to your keyboard and your body to prevent neck tension from reaching forward.
