Health Tip: Make Work Less Painful If You Have Arthritis

Health Tip: Make Work Less Painful If You Have Arthritis


(HealthDay News) -- Sitting at a desk and working at a computer all day can be painful for someone with arthritis.

The Arthritis Foundation offers these suggestions to ease arthritis pain and stiffness while you're at work:

  • Take regular breaks every 20 minutes to 30 minutes, getting up to stretch and move around.
  • Make sure your desk chair fits you well, and sit with your feet flat on the floor.
  • Set up your computer screen so it's level with your eyes.
  • Place papers in a document holder so they're easier to see without straining.
  • If your chair lacks lumbar support, use a rolled-up towel or small pillow to provide better support for your lower back.
