When spending a lot of time sitting in front of a computer, you have to deal with compression issues at both the bottom of your spine and at the junction where your neck meets your shoulders -- And it's not just all the time sitting at the computer or at work. Studies show we sit more than nine hours a day when including time spent reading, watching TV and eating.
When sitting, the force of your upper body settles into your lower back in the lumbar region of your spine. This is where most of your weight bearing and body movement takes place. To prevent your vertebrae from pressing against each other, spinal discs provide a cushion between them. Over time your discs gradually become thinner and your lower back gradually becomes stiffer, less forgiving, and more prone to injury. Your lower back must prop up the weight of the top half of your body -- And the position you sit in is extremely important!
