Maximizing your workspace while working from home
One way to help mitigate pain in our neck, shoulders and back while working from home is maintaining good posture, performing light stretching, and taking breaks. Here are a few tips to help you toward a pain free life while you work from home from the experts at OrthoVirginia:
Sit at a desk or table with a good supportive chair;
If necessary, place a small pillow or rolled towel in the small of your back to maintain a good upright posture;
Place your laptop or keyboard close enough to you so you don’t have to reach for it while using the table as support for you forearms;
Remember to take breaks to reduce stiffness in tension, specifically in your neck and upper back; and,
Try these stretches that are available on our Rosslyn Wellness page
