Why bad long sit at the computer and how to fix it

I've recently conducted a small survey among friends and acquaintances about how they evaluate their effectiveness when working remotely. Almost everyone I know — now work from home with computer and phone. And, as it turned out, even those who previously went to cities and countries and negotiated with clients — today it is successfully working from home with equal effectiveness (of course, this is not possible in all areas). Another interesting observation was that more work now. Even on your example I see that was spend on the computer significantly more time per day than before. About the causes we'll talk some other time, but today let's talk about consequences for the body. Constant work at the computer can lead to many problems, but with this very easy to fight, by following simple rules and doing very simple exercises.

Damage to the spine

After a long work behind a computer in a sitting position we always load some of the back muscles and absolutely no other load. The lack of load leads to their degradation, and because the metabolism in the spine occurs with the help of them, he also violated, which leads to osteochondrosis.

Also at a constant sedentary work increases the load on the intervertebral discs, which can cause herniation, which in turn causes pain in the limbs, internal organs or headache. For children it can be even more dangerous because the spine is not strong.

Damage to the wrists (carpal tunnel syndrome)

working with keyboard or mouse pinched nerves and blood vessels, due to which we experience pain and numbness in the hand and the fingers

A tunnel syndrome you have probably heard. During extended periods of keyboard or mouse, hands begin to hurt, and my fingers to swell and cause numbness. The fact is that the prolonged and repetitive movement of hands and fingers lead to frequent microtrauma of the neurovascular bundle and surrounding tissue, causing the compressed nerve endings. Because when you work at a computer is not the whole hand, but only certain muscles — they hipertrofiada and pinch the nerve. Inside it blood circulation, and we feel pain. The easiest way to avoid tunnel syndrome — is to take a break at least every hour for at least 10 minutes and stretch your fingers and hands.
