Standing desks work. I write this at a standing desk while I walk on a treadmill. Desperate for any fix for back and neck pain I thought I’d try standing up while I work. Tight and sore shoulders and neck problems have completely disappeared. The back, hip and joint pain are also lessening. This isn’t a fad, so stand up and work.
The new Kinetic desk from Stir allows one to work and take a stand for their health and wellbeing.
