Drink Coffee if Your Job is a Real Pain in the Neck
Having coffee with your breakfast could decrease desk-workers back, neck, shoulder and wrist pains, a new study finds.
“People who drank coffee before sitting down to work at a computer for 90 minutes reported less pain in their necks and shoulders than those who didn’t drink coffee, according to the study. Some in the study had previously suffered chronic neck and shoulder pain, while other participants hadn’t — but people in both groups who drank coffee reported less pain, the researchers said.
Among people whose daily work involves low levels of muscle activity, such as sitting at a computer all day, about 10 percent report shoulder and neck pain, according to the study.”
If coffee doesn’t help, go on short or long-term disability like so many with “strong” work ethics that I’ve worked with at my office.
