It's 3:00 and you've been sitting at a desk for about 6 hours. Your back is starting to hurt from hunching over your computer screen. Your shoulders are rounding forward. Your neck is aching from being a prolonged state of flexion.
You start to wonder if the Hunchback of Notre Dame's condition was a result of endless hours at a desk job.
