What is Going On -
The effects of sitting in an office are not typically talked about but there is a real danger to your muscles, nerves and tendons while you are working. For hours your body is in an upright, often unnatural, position that strains the ligaments in your lower back, hands, and shoulders. With little to no movement or change of posture, muscles can become fatigued resulting in serious problems with your well-being.
Health Complications -
There are several consequences to ergonomics of office work because of its repetitive nature. Wrist and arm pain have been reported as significant injuries within the workforce and back pain by those who spend their days sitting accounts for over half of back pain cases in America, according to the American Physical Therapy Association.

Lack of enjoyment
