Health at Your Desk: A Chiropractic Perspective.  Set Up, Get Moving, Get Healthy

This book is great for anyone that is having pain after sitting at their desk. This book is a great resource for corporate work stations or at home work stations. I also offer individual guidance and support for a proper desk setup to prevent injuries of the neck, back, and extremities.

Did you know that….

  • Every hour of TV viewed after the age 25 reduces life expectancy 21.8 minutes.
  • Women who sit more than six hours per day are 94% more likely to die than those that were physically active and sat less than three hours per day.
  • In as little as 30 minutes of sitting, metabolic processes begin to deteriorate which include: increased blood pressure, increased blood sugars, and increased cholesterol levels.
  • At a healthy weight, there is an 89% reduction in a five-year mortality (death) rate.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, often computer related, has the highest nonfatal injury related days off work, the high being 30 median work days missed.

Health at Your Desk: A Chiropractic Perspective. Set Up, Get Moving, Get Healthy

"After 10 years in IT I started to notice that I would tire out quickly, my eyes would strain, my wrists, back, and neck would get sore, and as a result I was still putting in the hours but my performance diminished, and I could tell my body was warning me. Since I have adapted Dr. Jan’s methods I rarely get these pains anymore, and not just because I am more ergonomic but because I have learned to incorporate breaks, mild stretching, and exercise to my daily work routine."
"Dr Jan Suckut has done it! She has put together a formula of exercise and stretches to follow at your desk that, without a doubt, will be beneficial to your health. There is something for all levels of physical abilities.  This is great for those busy professionals that cannot find time for the gym. They now have an easy reference guide to follow at their desk."
"I have learned so much about office ergonomics from Dr Jan’s presentations on ways to prevent discomfort and injury simply by setting up my workstation properly.  As a production manager whose employees worked on computers eight hours per day, I know the impact of computer-related injuries.  The recovery period for carpal tunnel surgery and recuperation is long and costly to employers.  Learning how to protect our employees and ourselves just makes sense."
"One minute breaks from your computer to make you healthy" "This helpful tip from Dr Jan has made all the difference in the world in decreasing a feeling of physical and mental stagnation when I am working. Every hour I make it a point to get up move around, get a glass of water and take a few deep breaths. Thank you Dr Jan."
"Dr. Jan Suckut truly understands the importance of good posture and computer setup. She really cares and takes the time to educate you and help you with your computer and laptop setups. Since I adjusted my setup, it has made a big difference in preventing neck and back discomfort and has increased my productivity while working on projects. Dr. Jan is the best!"
