Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159120013X, Paperback)

Today it isn't just heavy lifters who suffer from their work. Millions of office workers suffer from aches and pains caused by the stress of sitting down--too long, too awkwardly--and more workdays are lost from back pain than from any other cause except colds.

The Good news is that all these conditions are preventable and can be cured. People need not suffer if they are sedentary workers. Dr. Scott W. Donkin explores the all-too-common symptoms of eyestrain, back and neck pain, and should and arm symptoms caused by sitting in incorrectly adjusted chairs with poor lighting while working at a computer or a video display terminal. Dr. Donkin provides practical help in preventing or alleviating these problems, such as showing the proper ways to sit and exercises to counteract the stresses of sitting for long periods. He also shows how to set up your workspace for optimum comfort and productivity so that both you and your employer will benefit from the result.
