An office job is safe in the sense that you don’t have to suffer in the heat of summer or endure bone chilling temperatures in the winter. And, your boss at the office will probably never ask you to do anything that is hazardous like climb on a roof or use heavy tools or machinery. Many people are thankful for their office job because it is known as less risky employment.
Despite this, did you know that an office job does actually pose risks to your health? It is known as Office Syndrome and it is typically found in office workers who spend many hours in front of a computer. Symptoms include headaches, shoulder and back pain, numb fingers and arms, weak eyesight, and dry eyes. Without some preventative measures being taken, it is possible that ‘Office Syndrome’ can lead to a slipped vertebral disc, and in severe cases, paralysis. The age range for those affected by Office Syndrome is 16-35 years old, within this age range there is a 55% chance that an office employee will be diagnosed with it.
You may wonder what causes this?
Most office employees are at work for at least 5 days a week, every week, except for the occasional holiday or vacation, and they likely remain sitting down in the same posture for long periods of time. When you sit down, especially if you have bad posture or your desk setup is not ergonomical, it can strain the entire body. Eventually an office worker, might develop pain in the entire body.
