A question our Geelong Chiropractors get asked a lot is if they should get a standing desk (or ‘Stand Up’ or ‘sit-to-stand’ desk) for at home or at their office. Generally, their answer is ‘Yes!’.

Standing desks can be a great way for people to have better posture while working. They can also keep their spine in a more neutral position. They can be a great addition to any desk set-up, and come in all different shapes and sizes.

It’s never been a more important time to switch over to a standing desk. With more people working from home than ever, as well as the increasingly long hours people are sitting at desks.

  • The flexibility of having the option to choose to sit or stand
