Another helpful strategy is to change your position as often as possible. You have to remember that you don’t need to stay in a seated position all the time. You can kneel in front of the computer to open up your hips while answering emails, go for a walk while talking on the phone, or even stretch while sitting at your desk.
In addition to getting up and changing your position, focus on restoring function to the tissues that become adaptively short and tight after long periods of sitting. Tightening and shortening of tissues may not be a problem initially, but after long periods of sitting they can begin to wreak havoc on our bodies. The idea is to tackle the areas that become restricted, such as your hip flexors, thoracic spine, shoulders and neck.
If you find yourself suffering from a workplace sprain/strain or currently sit at a desk everyday and want to eliminate the risk of developing an injury, try and be proactive and do something about it. Even small changes can go a long way to improve your posture and decrease a number of health risks.
