In the past few months I have been seeing this pretty regularly.People who were not previously working or studying from home are now having to do so and are experiencing pain because of it.
It can be from prolonged sitting, sitting on beds, couches and soft chairs or from lack of physical activity.I suggest adding in specific stretches for various types of pain while focusing on relieving the pain as fast as possible.
I also think that it’s a good idea to set up your workspace as ergonomically as possible. Don’t sit on your bed or couch to work because it is not a sturdy enough surface to support your body for long periods of time.
You need a chair where you can plant your feet firmly on the ground and and a space to work from where your arms are in front of you and not too or too low.
Sometimes, this takes some innovation or creativity to set up a space that works for you.
When I work from home I have a padded chair that I use to sit at the dining table with my computer in front of me.
It’s about finding what works best for you.
In the meantime, we can help the pain that you are experiencing with acupuncture, herbs, myofascial release and the use of natural pain cream.
