Drinking a cup of coffee could help prevent neck and shoulder pain caused by long hours in front of the computer.
The study by BMC Research focused on whether coffee could relieve the aches and pains of office workers who sit for long periods at their desks. It focused in particular on office tasks that "provoke pain in the neck and shoulders and forearms and wrists."
It found that study subjects who drank coffee before performing office-setting tasks had less pain in those areas than subjects who didn't drink it.
The authors of the report stress that the results are preliminary and additional study is needed.
