  • When you are sitting at your computer desk, either at work or at home, don’t lean forward, keep your shoulders relaxed, arms tucked in, elbow at 90 degrees, lower back supported and feet flat on the ground.
  • If you’re on the phone, at home or work, try standing for the call.
  • Avoid sitting on soft sofas with no back support
  • Use correct lifting and bending techniques
  • Maintain the correct weight and do basic core strengthening exercises
  • Every 20-30 minutes stand up and go for a brief walk around. Even if it’s to fill up a glass of water to drink, this will also help to keep you hydrated.
  • At home, get up every 30 min and do a lap of the house.
  • Stretch your hips flexors once a day for at least 1 minute each side
