The most common reason you develop neck pain or back pain is actually the wrong posture that you have at work. This can easily be avoided by making sure that you maintain a good posture of your neck and spine.
Sitting straight in your chair is the first step that every software engineer or any desk job worker should be doing, while also making sure that your workstation, for example, your laptop or computer should be at the level of your eye rather than looking down for long hours this practice of looking down with your neck bend can create a lot of posture related problems in the future like neck pain.
So the first step is to make sure that laptop is horizontal and you are looking straight, the next step as I said is making sure you sit with your spine straight and also develop some exercises for your neck, for your spine and also for your shoulders which must be done at least 5-10 times every day to avoid long time poster related problems and this practice of doing exercises is more true for people who are sitting on the desk for in the longer without many physical exercises.
The commonest reason for developing a lot of sports-related injuries is lack of adequate warm-up before the sport, a lot of the professional sports people do follow this exercise of doing warm up and stretches in spite of that they are prone to develop injuries. But what we are experiencing and seeing recently is the middle-aged people, not professional sports people who are developing a lot of sports-related injuries. The weekend warriors – the middle-aged, people who are playing occasional sports as recreational sport, especially in their free time are more at prone of developing sports-related injuries if they do not do adequate warm up it is extremely important that they go for a 5 min jog before starting any sport let it be badminton or tennis or volleyball, any sport that you plan to play as a recreational sport must be done only after doing a warm –up. A 5 min jog followed by minimal stretching exercises goes a long way in avoiding a lot of these injuries.
