Hip PainHip pain can be brought on by your positioning at your desk. If your chair is too low or you are leaning forwards to your desk, then the hip joint is more closed and can become painful.
Simple steps you can take to help with hip pain:
- Make sure your desk-based assessment is up to date for your current situation. If you have pain you may need to change the way you are sitting or working at your desk space.
- Raise your chair slightly.
- If your chair can tilt the base of the seat (the bit you are sitting on) forwards, then opening your hips to between an 8* and 11* angle can provide more space for your hip joint and make it less painful.
- Sometimes working in standing is less painful for an aggravated hip so try and standing desk set up.
- Have regular desk breaks. It is recommended that you move every 20 minutes. Get up from your desk, make a cup of tea or just gently move in standing for a minute!
- Try these simple exercises below.
