Over time, hunching forward in an office chair leads to the development of tight, rigid muscles and joints, which are more prone to injury. Office ergonomics can help minimize the risk of repetitive injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 650,000 work-related musculoskeletal disorders in 2010. Leaning forward 30 degrees in an attempt to get closer to the computer screen puts 3 to 4 times more strain on the back.
