Screen Time Ergonomics & Recommendations

We have all been practising social distancing to help flatten the curve over the last month. Everyone is spending more time in front of their screen, us at MaxFit included, as we are trying to stay updated and in communication with our loved ones and our clients as well. But, here is the trouble: less physical activity typically brings on more aches and pains as we decrease our movement and normal activities.

Here are some tips to help get through social distancing with comfort through self-management:

  1. Avoid leaning forward or twisting to read your computer.
  2. Use a desk rather than the armrest of a couch or your lap when using a laptop.
  3. Keep your feet flat on the floor and knees bent at 90 degrees.
  4. Let your shoulders relax rather than hunching.
  5. Take frequent breaks and drink lots of water.
  6. Use appropriate reading eyewear to prevent leaning towards or away from your computer screen to read it.
  7. Use the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes look at something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds to fight against eye strain.

What our clients are saying
  • "‘I've been a patient of Dr. Kelsick for the past 10 years, and Dr. Rite for the past 4, and the two are truly amazing at what they do! Although their titles are Chiropractors, they both have such a wide base of knowledge and understanding of the body, that I often feel as if our sessions are a combination of chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and occasionally even nutrition. As such, when I see them, I know I am being taken care off. As an athlete, and simply an injury prone individual, they have both truly made a difference in how my body functions. I definitely recommend =).’ "
    Sabrina Nettey
  • "‘Dr. Kelsick and his team are truly amazing. They’ve been putting me back together and keeping me moving for more than 15 years and now take care of my whole extended family, from my 86-year-old mom to my teenage daughters. Dr. Kelsick goes the extra mile to understand exactly what is going on with your body in order to provide the very best solutions. No problem is too complex or challenging. Think Dr. House with a far better bedside manner!’ "
    Peggi Peacock
  • "‘As an athlete my goal is to have a fit and healthy body, and Maxfit Movement Institute helps me maintain this goal. The team of Doctors are truly gifted, and their positive outlook on life is amazing. Thank you for making a difference in my life.’"
    L Murphy
  • "‘The difference with the staff at MaxFit, especially Randy and Wilbour: they take the time to assess and determine the source of your aches or pains. Not only do they treat whatever it is, they explain how to avoid it happening again. I have tried many physio-therapists but none of them come close to MaxFit. Highly recommended. ‘"
