I have a really sore back from sitting at my computer. I'm worried it could be long term because i still get sharp pains in my back when i've been away from my computer for a long time.

Does anyone else have this?

I think we can agree that computers are very bad for our health.

I get back pain... but it's because I'm tall and it runs in the family. Teach yourself some amateur chiropracty. My personal favourites are the "back stretch" where youpuch against your lower back with your palm sort of downwards until it makes a crunching sound, and the "door push" where you stand in a doorway with your back against one side and push as hard as you can with your hands against the other. You can realign 4 or 5 vertibrae with that one, on a good day. And it makes a nice crunching sound.

Oh no! Well try some back extensions, hopefully they will help. Morning is best. Find a nice, spacious area and sit a mat there, or do them on carpet.

Rest your body (stomach on ground) on one straight line and put both hands (facing down) under your chin. Lift your upper body section up from the ground and hold for one second.

Repeat 10 times. See how you go, and if you think you can do a few more, aim for 15 x. Do morning and night for general back maintenance.

Now when you use the computer, ensure that you're sitting upright and straight.

It's annoying, but really worth it!

Best of luck with recovering from your sore back!

Hehe that's ok! I'm studying human physiology and anatomy at uni as part of my psych/biology degree anyway, so it's imperitive we know our stuff! :eek: Plus I find putting the knowledge I've learnt into practical use proves to be useful as well. So anytime time you have a sprain or something, well as Everdawn says the best thing for you to do is to see a physio, but you can ask me for advice too - like on how/+how long to stretch etc

Rarely i get a sore tail bone from not sittting properly.

Although, i cannot sit infront of a computer screen for more than 4 hours. I usually go for a hike or run around the track and then return to the computer.

Yeah, that's what I was gonna add as well. Good one canuck, yep it's also important you take breaks from the computer. Every hour or so is good (if ur on for more than one). Just take a break, because it won't only benefit your back, but your eyes and stuff too :cool:
