I have to agree on this.
I am 35 y/o, and I just received my second set of steriod shots in my spine on 4/18, due to a multitude of disc issues that despite trying 6-weeks of physical therapy, did not get better. My inability to heal properly is mostly related to being seated 9-10 hours a day, at minimum (long days go 12-16 hours, but only like once a week). I am not overweight at all (some call me “skinny”), eat healthy, do light exercise, etc.
My workspace is even “mostly” ergonomic, but apparently not enough. I have a new chair coming in a few weeks from the employer, you would not believe what it took to get that out of them. :hmm:
Anyway, yes, I agree, be sure your workspace is fully ergonomic, and don’t ignore back/neck pain until it’s too late!
