Part 5: How to Minimize/Prevent Risks of Neck Strain From Everyday Use.

Stretches can be done in order to relieve the muscles that have been keeping your neck posture the entire day. Some examples of these stretches can be neck tilts or neck rotations.

Taking micro-breaks during work will give the body a break from the neck posture that is held for majority of the work day. While in the seated position, take note of proper neck posture, with the ears above out shoulders while seated, especially if there is no neck rest.

If pain or discomfort is present, do not hesitate to see a doctor. Ergo-Motion Consulting has devised a convenient ergonomic assessment tool to determine if an ergonomic assessment is beneficial for individuals and companies alike. Feel free to visit ergotool.ergo-motion.com to take the assessment.
