Update/Note After a bad fall on my mountain bike that jacked up my back and caused a broken rib, I started to exhibit back issues. My doctor and physical therapist recommend I try out a standing desk at work to see if it helped with my back fatigue that was caused by these injuries. As of this update, I have been using a standing desk for 1 week as well as doing my exercises. I will report back in a month (maybe a bit longer if time slips by) and let you know where I stand (get it? tee hee) on this issue and if my opinion has changed at all.
