Quite a few studies have tried to link posture to chronic pain and tightness, but none have been successful. That’s because our bodies are adaptable and it is hard to be in a harmful position when just sitting at a desk. However, there is evidence demonstrating that being sedentary can actually result in an individual experiencing discomfort, tension and other physical concerns.
Focusing on regular movement breaks rather than being in any specific posture is a good way to start to alleviate these issues. You should try to take these movement breaks about once every 45 minutes and they can be as simple as doing some neck and shoulder rolls or walking to the water cooler.
