For those of you who spend long times sat at computer, like I do for both work and fun, do you find yourself having neck/shoulder/back pain issues?
I've suffered from this for a long time now and nothing I have really tried has helped - outside of lifting weights (which helps immensely) but I only lift 3x a week and I find on the days I don't lift I suffer from pretty servere muscle ache especially in the trapezius area.
I've tried various forms of stretching and just getting up now and again when I've been sat down for too long. I also try to watch my posture but often find myself hunched over as its a real effort to sit up straight for long periods. Once it flairs up it really does effect me in a huge way to the point where I can hardly think at times as the pain runs up the back of my neck and gives me headaches. I've been to my doctor they just gave me a bunch of pills which did help some, but after a week they seemed to stop having an effect, Id rather not have to rely on those anyways. I think it may also be partly stress related (in times of stress i seem to tense my shoulders.)
Any advice appreciated.
