Good body mechanics means practicing good posture throughout the day.
Use good body mechanics all the time, not just when you have back pain.
If you think that your back problems are related to your workspace,
talk to your employer about having your workstation evaluated. You may be able
to reduce your chances of back problems and be more comfortable and efficient
by setting up your workspace and work tools for your own personal needs.
