“Back In the Office” campaign

While supporting any and all well meaning people who want to help back pain, I find myself at odds with one recommendation of the forth coming “back in the office” campaign promoted by the Charity Back care (6th -12th October 2014)

Whilst i endorse most of the aims of this campaign

  • Stand not Sit while you work
  • Stretch your back at your desk at least every half hour
  • Set your workstation just right
  • Ergonomic furniture, a hype or a necessity?
  • Use headsets and stop straining those neck muscles!
  • Take regular breaks especially if you work long hours
  • Employers guidelines

I think based on current research, that the “stretch your back ” suggestion, is probably  best  treated with caution
