Hi! You need to stand up and move around every 30-60 minutes. The back pain is a result of immobility and poor sitting posture. Make sure you sit straight, your feet rest comfortably on the floor and you have good back and arm support.

Using a new form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), researchers studied 22 volunteers with no back pain history. The subjects assumed three different positions: slouching; sitting up straight at 90 degrees; and sitting back with a 135-degree postureall while their spines were scanned.
"A 135-degree body-thigh sitting posture was demonstrated to be the best biomechanical sitting position, as opposed to a 90-degree posture, which most people consider normal," said study author, Waseem Amir Bashir, a researcher at the University of Alberta Hospital in Canada.

Stand up and keep the neck pressed against the collar. Inhale slowly and as strongly as possible. At the same time press the neck back firmly against the collar' Now hold it there hard.
