According to the Health Policy Institute, back pain is the 6th most expensive medical condition in the US, and 8% of adults suffer chronic back pain that limits their activities. Ouch! You know we advocate standing instead of sitting all day, and lifting the surface of your folding table if you need or want to stand at it. However, there are daily habits that can also keep your back healthy and happy.
Hopefully COVID-19 is no longer as much of an issue, because that was a big problem for many retail workers who had to stay face-to-face with the potentially infected public.
