Standing

Good Postures of the utmost importance. Don’t let your head hang down and don’t slouch. Wear comfortable shoes if you know you are going to be standing for a long period of time.

Sitting or Working at a Desk

Keep your computer at eye level to avoid looking down. Choose a chair that fits to your back and allows your feet to reach the floor while keeping your legs at a 90 degree angle. it is recommended that you stand up or stretch every 20 minutes or so.

 

Lifting

Always bend at the knees, NOT your back. Avoid lifting anything that may be too heavy. Lifting objects is one of the most common ways that people hurt themselves, even twisting or pulling in the wrong direction can, over time, lead to spinal misalignment.
