Spending long days at the office sitting in a chair staring at a computer or repetitive movements can lead to numerous injuries that are somewhat unique to the workplace. Repetitive stress syndrome is a term used to describe the pain felt in muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse, such as the forearm, elbow, wrist, hands, neck and shoulders. Lower back pain can be incredibly painful and inconvenient. It’s sometimes caused by poor posture or from sitting in chairs with little lumbar support. Other conditions affecting the arm and wrist include carpal tunnel, bursitis, and tendinitis.
More serious back pain can also result from sitting at a desk for 8 to 12 hours each day. If you’re experiencing numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arms or legs, you may be suffering from a herniated disc. Conditions like bulging and herniated discs often require medical attention.
