With 1 in 5 Americans working from a home office, we all relate to being cramped over our desks.
But ask yourself, is this something I really want to put up with? Sitting at your desk for long periods of time can be uncomfortable and irritating. Not only that, it can also lead to a variety of health problems. These include:
- neck and back pain
- shoulder pain
- numbness into arms
- poor posture
- chronic headaches
- weakened postural muscles
- lack of energy
- weight gain
- circulatory issues
- heart risk
This is a long list of symptoms that Anderson Peak Performance are passionate to preventing. This is why we are proud to be working with UpDesk to promote their ergonomic and innovative sit/stand desks. Much like your existing home or office desk, UpDesk is here for all your work space needs, but minus the health risks!
The following statistic may shock you. Did you know sitting for ONE HOUR could take 21.8 minutes off your life? This is why UpDesk have created a desk which you can operate from standing. Plus, with their customizable heights, designs and sizes, they don’t restrict your work ability either. The “Gold Standard” in the United States for ergonomic chairs are made for men that are 5’11”. Are you a man that is 5’11”? If the answer is no, a convertible or Stand Up desk may be for you.
Instead of sitting in an uncomfortable position for the majority of your day, stretch your legs and stand while you work! Standing can burn around 280 extra calories a day than sitting. Also, with the ability to move naturally, your body will have more energy, allowing you to focus more and be more productive to your full potential!
Anderson Peak Performance were concerned to learn that those who sit for long periods of time increase their risk of a neck (cervical) or lower back (lumbar) herniated disc.
This, unfortunately, can trigger severe back pain. In some cases, it can even result in pain and nerve issues down the leg. Dr. Jeannette M. Anderson is an expert in her field and uses Chiropractic to help treat herniated discs (click here to see what services Anderson Peak Performance provide). However, we want to make sure that this does not happen to you. Therefore, we encourage you to speak to Dr. Anderson and check out an UpDesk to prevent any further injury.
Allowing your body to stand will naturally promote better posture, as well as strengthen your muscles. It provides your body with the natural movement it needs, taking pressure off your back and joints. Also, it allows your muscle groups to get the necessary activity they need to properly support your daily life.

Not only that, you can look at the different sizes, shapes and designs available and choose one that best suits your needs. The desks are height adjustable and accessories, such as monitor supports, are available too. Some desks even come with a surface that can be written on, while others have multiple desk levels.
