So you have neck pain or back pain and you have tried a few different things that simply haven't worked. What else can you try?We know that the pain in your neck, upper and mid back and along the shoulders is irritating and distracting - sometimes causing aching pain and discomfort between the shoulder blades, either side of the spine, up the neck and into the back of the head and even down towards the lower back.  The pain can increase as the day goes on, making you feel like you want to crawl out of your body to get away from it, affecting your ability to comfortably work, study, cook, sleep and carry out your daily tasks. These symptoms can greatly affect your everyday life, becoming tiring and restricting. In simple terms, it's debilitating.

Standing Desks…. Are they just a fad or are they really worth the investment?Standing desks have gained a lot of popularity over the past few years and I am constantly getting asked whether they are worth the investment. Simply put, no one position for too long is a good thing, but I think like anything else in life - in moderation they can work really well. Prolonged sitting (longer then 30 minutes) does tend to stress your lower back quite significantly as well as cause you to round your shoulders and strain your neck. This is why the use of a standing desk can be beneficial!
