Laptop use risks without ergonomic posture

Using your Laptop for a long time in wrong posture may be dangerous for your health.ergonomics chair back pain
Sitting in a standard office chair for prolonged periods of time can definitely cause low back pain or worsen an existing back problem. The main reason behind this is that sitting, in an office chair or in general, is a static posture that increases stress in the back, shoulders, arms, and legs, and in particular, can add large amounts of pressure to the back muscles and spinal discs.
Persistently incorrect posture, faulty biomechanical stress, fluctuation between contraction and relaxation of muscles is disturbed. 90% of cervical pain is non-specific. It usually develops slowly through persistent (unilateral) incorrect biomechanical stress. Over time, the stress of poor posture can change the anatomical characteristics of the spine, leading to the possibility of constricted blood vessels and nerves, as well as problems with muscles, discs, and joints. All of these can be major contributors to back and neck pain, as well as headaches, fatigue, and possibly even concerns with major organs and breathing.

Better an ergonomic chair

Using the Laptop on your desk, you definitely should buy an ergonomic chair and an adjustable height-adjustable external monitor to find the right posture by adjusting your chair to the best body position. An ergonomic office chair is a tool that, when used properly, can help one maximize back support and maintain good posture while sitting.

The first step in setting up an office chair is to establish the desired height of the individual’s desk or workstation. This decision is determined primarily by the type of work to be done and by the height of the person using the office chair. The height of the desk or workstation itself can vary greatly and will require different positioning of the office chair, or a different type of ergonomic chair altogether.
