Sample text

Staying in any position too long, even a comfortable position, is hazardous to muscles. A static position favors the formation of trigger points because it hampers circulation. Muscles need a certain amount of contracting and relaxing to stay healthy. Many jobs are static by nature, particularly anything done sitting at a desk. Unfortunately, sedentary or inactive work gives you the impression that your work is easy, that you’re not straining anything. On the contrary, you might well be under a great deal of subtle physical strain and not recognize it.

Iron enables muscle tissue to use the nutrients and oxygen delivered by the blood. Iron also has a role in regulating body temperature. People with inadequate iron may feel cold much of the time. Too much iron, however, is as bad as too little, sometimes leading to skin discoloration, heart disease, and slow recovery from stroke. Potassium deficiency affects the functioning of heart muscles and other smooth muscles (Mense and Gerwin 2010). If your trigger points persist or you have recurring bouts of muscle pain, it is a good idea to get blood work done to test for insufficiencies.

Laptop computers, tablets, and mobile devices create all kinds of opportunities for muscle pain. Work smart when using equipment that compromises good ergonomics. Just watching other people engaged in these activities will give you plenty of ideas for improving your own posture. Kindles and other reading devices should be propped up at an angle to limit neck flexion. Use a separate keyboard for a laptop when possible so you can position the screen at eye level. Make a workstation for standing at the kitchen counter with your laptop on a couple of thick books.
