5 EYEWITNESS NEWS spoke with doctors who said neck and back pain are common right now. One doctor recommends taking micro-breaks to stand or stretch for 15 seconds every 30 minutes. He also recommends moving from a sitting to standing position throughout the day.

"We know that a good recommendation for a standing work station is to get out your ironing board, and use your ironing board as a work surface and change that height throughout the day," Dr. Chad Henriksen said. "We don't want to be sitting or standing in the same position for anymore than 20 minutes at a time."
