As many savvy workers are already aware, the issue of ergonomics at work has recently become a far more serious one. While ergonomics experts have long known that office workers were headed down a dangerous path, it is only recently that those dangers have exploded into the public consciousness. And not a moment too soon: after all, millions of us are doing damage to ourselves every day.

Ironically, in the effort to reduce the necessity of physical motion of work, we have now gone too far. In an age of email, instant messaging, and improved Internet service, countless workers can now productively toil for hours on end without leaving their desk once. The result is that low-level pressures and tension on our joints and muscles are now allowed to build up to an exceptionally unhealthy point.
