In today's digital era, many of us find ourselves tethered to our desks for hours on end, navigating through endless emails, reports, and meetings. As the hours tick by, we often overlook a subtle but consistent threat to our wellbeing - the strain on our spine due to prolonged sitting.


At Spinal Health Australia, we're committed to enhancing your understanding of spinal health and offering insights into how you can foster a healthy spine even in a desk-bound environment.

The Science Behind the Strain

Our spines are designed for movement. Extended periods of sitting can cause the spinal discs to compress, leading to reduced circulation and increased risk of nerve irritation. Over time, this can cause chronic pain, reduced mobility, and other health complications.

HeActivate Your Spine, Energise Your Day

Don't let a sedentary work routine dictate the health of your spine. Here are some steps to ensure your back remains agile and pain-free:

Set a Timer

Every 30 minutes, remind yourself to stand up and take a short walk - even if it's just around your office. This simple act reduces the pressure on your spinal discs.

Stretch Regularly

Simple stretches, such as reaching for the sky, twisting gently from side to side, or bending forward to touch your toes, can invigorate your spine.

Ergonomic Workstations

Ensure your desk, chair, and computer setup is ergonomically designed. Your screen should be at eye level, and your feet should rest flat on the ground.


Hydrate

Drink plenty of water regularly, throughout the day. Keep a jug of water close by. Regular hydration aids in maintaining the integrity of the intervertebral discs.

Core Workouts

Engage in exercises that strengthen your core, such as planks or Pilates. A strong core supports your spine, which help with reducing the risk of injury.

Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Incorporate foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon or flaxseed, into your diet. These foods help reduce inflammation, mitigating pain.

Empower Your Spine with Spinal Health Australia


While the steps above offer a proactive approach, sometimes professional intervention is the key to addressing and rectifying spinal issues. Regular chiropractic adjustments can provide relief from the impacts of prolonged sitting and re-align your spine for optimal health.


While modern work often demands long hours at a desk, we aren't bound to accept the accompanying spinal stress as a given. By adopting simple habits and seeking expert care, you can enjoy both a productive workday and a vibrant spine.


Your spine supports you in every endeavor. Return the favor by giving it the care it deserves. Schedule an appointment with us at Spinal Health Australia to learn more.
