Is Your Job a Pain in the Neck?

By June 16, 2013

Follow me on:

I coach marathon runners in New York City and many of them are intense overachievers who try to balance working long hours at a demanding job with their marathon training. When I hear them complain about back, neck, or arm pain, I'll ask them if they're sitting in front of a computer for most of the day. They often think that their running form is the cause of their pain, but it sometimes has nothing to do with running.

To help avoid back, neck, and arm pain, check out this video, Ergonomics at Work, and learn how to properly set up your work space.
