Here at Melbourne Osteopathic Clinic we find that headaches are a common problem among office workers, and there are a number of factors that can contribute to the development of headaches in this population. Some tips that can help prevent headaches in office workers include:

  1. Maintaining good posture while sitting and using ergonomic equipment, such as an adjustable chair and keyboard, to reduce strain on the neck and shoulders.
  2. Taking frequent breaks to stretch and move around to help reduce tension in the muscles.
  3. Using an anti-glare screen filter on your computer monitor to reduce eye strain.
  4. Managing stress through techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, or yoga.
  5. Adjusting the lighting in your work environment to minimize glare and harsh shadows.
  6. Ensuring that you are taking regular meal breaks and staying hydrated, as hunger or dehydration can sometimes cause headaches.
  7. keeping a healthy lifestyle by regular exercise, adequate sleep, and eating a healthy diet.


It’s important to note that if you are experiencing frequent headaches or headaches that are affecting your daily activities, it’s a good idea to speak to one of our Osteopaths to determine the underlying cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
