As an IT professional and "white-collar warrior," there are days where I bounce around from one area to another, barely spending time at my desk. However, there can be days where I spend hours staring at a computer screen, barely moving. Before I began my career in Information Technology, I wouldn't have considered working at a desk on a computer "back-breaking" by any means. I don't think any guy has ever been successful impressing the ladies using, "Hey check out this wrist brace, it's for my carpal tunnel. These bad boys can type 70+ words per minute, no big deal." Obviously, manual labor of any kind is more "back-breaking" than office work, but it still surprised me the first time I noticed back pain after an exciting day of responding to emails, slaying support tickets and revising "the heck" out of policies.
