Laptop? Stay Pain Free!

Thinking about swapping your desk top computer for a laptop?

Laptops allow us to be able to work more flexibly, but they can also cause back, neck and shoulder problems.

According to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor, many of the features that make laptops very portable, such as a screen attached to the keyboard, also make it difficult for people to adopt the correct posture when using them.

Here are a few tips to ensure that you protect your spine while using your laptop:

  • Use a separate keyboard and mouse so that you can place the laptop on a stand and use the screen at eye level.
  • Work on your laptop from a stable base where your arms can be supported.  
  • Take regular breaks. There will be a lot less stress on your back when you’re moving.

Be computer savvy. Protect your spine.
