Physically inactive and sitting work, like so many others in our time, ends up causing back pain if proper prevention is not done. A third of sick leaves are caused by problems linked to the lack of ergonomics in the workplace. To solve this problem, it would be enough to sit correctly in front of the monitor and to maintain a good posture at the level of the keyboard and the mouse, which would avoid the most frequent pains like those of the back, neck and shoulders.

Pain in these parts of the body is made worse by other consequences of poor posture in the workplace, such as neck and spine deformities, which can lead to illnesses such as back pain. Joint and tendon problems due to use of the keyboard and movement of the wrist towards the mouse. And, the direct impact that this has on the productivity of the employee, either because of the decrease in performance caused by the pain, or, directly, by the inability to perform their work which results in a work stoppage.
