Time was, computer posture was, much like so many areas of posture, a largely aesthetic concern. While slouching at the computer does indeed take away from one's ability to present herself with confidence and poise, an even more compelling reason to address this issue has emerged. That issue, surprisingly, is one of health.

In an age when millions of us can productively sit at a computer for hours without getting up, improper posture can be a significant physical risk. That's because the pressure and tension placed on our muscles and joints while we are sitting at a computer and typing have a dramatic cumulative effect. From carpal tunnel to chronic neck and shoulder pain, the care with which you position and hold yourself at the computer has long ceased to be an issue of appearance.

Best of all, for the first time, the most experienced physiologists' counsel and advice is now far more affordable than you might have imagined.

You work hard every day, but that does not and should not mean that your body needs to pay the long-term consequences. If you take the time to educate yourself about correct computer posture, you will ensure yourself a long, productive future without paying a hefty physical price. Now that remarkable new solutions are so close at hand, there is no reason to wait.
