The pandemic has been challenging for many different reasons, big and small. While many of us are loving the option of working from home full time, the reality is that without a true functional workstation and a regular routine, you may find yourself with a few additional aches and pains than you are used to. After a year of working from home, you may realize that you feel neck pain and stiffness, back pain, headaches, or you may even find that your feet are suddenly hurting. This pain and discomfort may not all make sense to you, especially because you, but the team at Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab can help you put the pieces together and explain the origin of the pain and develop a non-invasive treatment plan that will have you pain free in no time!
Is Your Workstation Contributing To Pain And Stiffness?
When you were asked to work from home to minimize the spread of COVID-19, you may not have realized how long the work from home arrangement would last. You may not have set up a workstation that is ergonomically correct, and it may put additional stress and strain on your body, especially after many months of working. Are you working at a true desk? Do you have an office chair or are you using a dining room chair? Are you using a laptop with a small keyboard? Are you taking less steps per day than you were when you were in an office setting? Any of these small changes can trigger an issue with a part of your body like your neck, back, wrists, hands, or even your knees and feet.
When you spend extensive time in an awkward position for your body and do not move around as much, it is very easy to develop pain or an injury. Our team has extensive experience treating these kinds of issues. We find that a chiropractic adjustment and/or massage therapy can be exactly what a client needs to relax their muscles, improve alignment and posture, reduce inflammation, pain and stiffness. Our treatments do not require the use of over the counter or prescription medications. We can also provide you with exercises that you can do at home to help you feel better each and every day.
