Good posture and good body mechanics can help prevent tension in your neck, shoulders, and upper back muscles. If your headaches seem to be related to tension in this area, maintaining good posture during daily activities may help prevent headaches.
Use good body mechanics all the time, not just when you have a headache or back pain. Here are some things you can do.
The key to good back posture is to keep the right amount of curve in your lower back—not too curved and not too flat.
Adjust your monitor so that the top of the screen is at eye level.
Don't cradle the phone between your shoulder and your ear.
Avoid reaching up or down to your work.
When you stand for long periods of time, put one foot on a small stool. Switch feet now and then.
Lift with your legs, not your back.
Bike riding is one example of this.
