Back pain isn’t exclusive to blue-collar workers with physically laborious jobs. If you work in an office, you’ll probably spend a large portion of your time sitting, which can take a toll on your spinal column and its supporting tissues.

When working in an office, you should focus on maximizing your productivity. Just because you work for eight hours a day doesn’t necessarily mean that you are productive for all eight hours. According to research cited by Inc.com, the average office worker is only productive for about three hours a day.
