Trending: Variable Height Desks

Business people.

Standing for your health! Variable height desks are more and more popular.

Sitting for long periods of time at work or home is not an optimal situation, particularly if you have a history of low back pain or disc problems. Standing, however, puts much less pressure on the joints of the lower back and can help to alleviate pain or even prevent it from occurring in the first place.

So where do you start?

Find Your Ideal “Sit-Stand Desk”

By using an adjustable height desk, your body is able to vary its position during the day from sitting, to perching, to standing. Some of the benefits include

  • Decreased musculoskeletal discomfort
  • Improved mental acuity and mood
  • Improved productivity
  • Measurable increases in blood flow

My Recommendation

There are several good manufacturers of sit-stand desks. One model that I like is produced by IKEA — the “Bekant.” This variable height desk is very affordable and will provide years of reliability.

There are other options as well, so when searching for your ideal desk, consider the features that are available:

  • Attractive and contemporary design
  • Height adjustability
  • Pre-assembly
  • Silent movement
  • Superior ergonomics
  • Various finishes and color selection
  • Width options

Whether you invest in a sit-stand desk or not, it’s vital that you stand at least two times an hour and even better if you take a stroll or stretch. Help your back be as strong and healthy as possible with the powerful combination of regular chiropractic care and minimal sitting!
